Marex

Portable Mud Tank Cleaning Systems

If required, Marex is able to supply portable mud tank cleaning systems. Such systems are likely to be used by contractors who are given the task of cleaning out mud tanks, mud pits and onshore storage systems.

Marex has designed systems for cleaning out a variety of containers including the skips provided to collect and transport drill cuttings. However, most system are supplied with machines, layflat and heavy duty hoses, which are braided to prevent the build-up of static electricity, strainers and air driven pumps.

In a similar manner to fixed systems, the portable system can be used to clean tanks and pits, offshore and onshore, with the product, base oil or hot and cold water. In general, however, the company would not recommend such systems be used as part of ship or rig equipment, unless the intention is to have contractors use it to carry out the cleaning process.

Once more if a portable mud tank or pit cleaning system is under consideration Marex is able to advise on the most appropriate specification of equipment.
