Desanders are what larger diameter hydro-cyclones are typically referred as, and will be the next step in solids removal after an initial scalping shaker pass. Desanders are capable of handling large flow rates, up to 500 gpm per cone, but do not offer as fine of a cut. The underflow will be recirculated over a shaker and processed again while the overflow will be free to move on to the next stage, typically a desilter.
Triflo’s expertly designed line of mud cleaners are a cost effective, reliable solution to removing sands and solids from contaminated water. All of our units utilize Triflo patented static hydro-cyclones for solids separation. This offers many unique advantages as they do not utilize any moving parts which helps to keep operation cost and downtime to a minimum. In addition the produced water out of our cones flow through our “candy canes” into an open top atmospheric pressure discharge trough, instead of a pressured discharge manifold. This discharge method is unique to Triflo and allows our mud cleaners to be operated at lower pressure, as low as 25 PSI, reducing the size of pumps needed to power our units.
