Solids control is the process of removing and separating solid materials from drilling fluids in the oil and gas industry during drilling operations. The goal is to maintain the fluid properties, minimize waste and environmental impact, and increase operational efficiency by removing harmful cuttings and improving the drilling fluid’s performance.

What is Solids Control Equipment

Solids control equipment refers to a range of machinery and tools used in the drilling industry to manage the solids or drilling cuttings generated during the drilling of oil and gas wells. The purpose of solids control equipment is to separate the solid particles from the drilling fluid to maintain the fluid’s properties and prevent contamination. Examples of solids control equipment include shale shakers, mud cleaners, centrifuges, and hydrocyclones.
