The KEMTRON 100HD2 mud recycling and mixing unit was designed to provide an economical alternative to traditional mud mixing and vacuum trucks. Environmental pressures, dumping costs and down time while waiting on fresh water or vacuum truck turnaround, have made the KEMTRON 100HD2 an invaluable asset.
Fluid from the pit is pumped with a trash pump directly to the bottom deck of the double deck shaker. The solids are discarded off the rear and the fluid goes into the first compartment of the tank. The desilter pump pumps the fluid from the tank to the two 4” hydrocyclones.
The desilter underflow goes over the top deck of the shaker where the solids are discarded off the rear and fluid is collected in first compartment of the tank. The clean fluid (overflow) goes into the second compartment of the tank. The transfer pump pumps the fluid from the second compartment to the rig pump.
All pumps and the shaker have manual start and stop buttons on the control panel. The mud gun operates from the desilter pump. The KEMTRON 100HD2 comes standard with a 500 gallon (1,880 liters) tank and allows rig operators to prepare up to 500 gallons of mud.
