At Ullrigg we have a full-size fluid treatment system with agitated mud pits (total 200m3), settling tanks, shakers and mud pumps. Our flow system is throughout rated for 345 bars working pressure and can handle both water and oil-based muds. To ensure the correct test environment we have a heat exchanger that can either warm up the mud to a desired temperature or aid in dissipating downhole temperature gain. Our two Continental Emsco P1000 mud pumps can deliver up to 2500 l/min per pump, generating a total of around 5000 liters flow at a maximum of 365 bars or 5300 PSI.
