Key words: drilling mud, bentonitic mud powder, desander.
The quality of bentonitic mud powder may be improved by using special machinery to grind and remove sand. Production of powder muds free of solid abrasive particles enables to reduce energy consumption per unit, wear and tear of process equipment and to improve the quality of drilling mud.
