Desanding plants are employed to remove soil particles in drilling muds and support slurries used in foundation engineering. They can be either water-bentonite, water-polymere, or water-cement and bentonite suspensions. Desanding plants have further applications in gravel pits, in the mining industry and in microtunnelling projects. The regeneration or cleaning capacity of a desanding plant is determined by the plant´s intake capacity of contaminated suspension. It is defined in m3/h. The regeneration efficiency or the “significant cut-off point” d50 indicates the smallest particle size of which at least 50 % can be removed from a suspension. It is expressed in 1/1000 mm or micron.
The main components of all desanding plants are:
