  • Orbital 3 PanelMud Cleaner

This page shows many beneficial and unique features of VFSI's Orbital Mud Cleaner. Take a look and see why VFSI's Orbital Mud Cleaner excels in performance, reliability, and durability.

The VFSI three panel mud cleaner uses orbital motion for extended screen life and conveyance. Ten high performance hydrocyclones process 1000 gpm of mud. The large screen area (22.5 ft2) and high “g forces” allow the user to commonly run 250 and 325 mesh screens.

The hydrocyclone manifold has ten premium four inch hydrocyclones in a linear configuration with a total processing capacity of 1000 GPM. Each hydrocyclone is capable of processing 100 GPM and comes with a head, cylindrical, and a cone sections. The tip of the cone section has a polyurethane nut and adjustable nozzle wear piece. The feed and overflow for the manifold are 6 in [15.25 cm] diameter. Holes for optional pressure gages are mounted on the feed tube.

The Orbital 3 Panel mud cleaner has the hydrocyclones mounted above the steel plate in front of the first screen. This configuration greatly reduces the overall height of the shaker while allowing room to conveniently access the hydrocyclones. Since the Hydrocyclones discharge on a steel plate, and not on the screen directly, screen life is greatly improved.

The polyurethane used to cast these hydrocyclones is a proprietary blend. In testing, this blend has shown to significantly exceed 90% alumina ceramic in abrasion wear resistance. Since these cones have better wear properties than our ceramic lined cones, Vortex no longer produces cones with ceramic inserts.

All baskets are fully seal welded and stress relieved. Seal welding reduces corrosion, adding years to machine life. The Orbital 3000 pretension screening machine requires minimal maintenance, even in oil based muds.

Two layers of powder coat. Baked on zinc-rich epoxy first coat provides corrosion resistance. Final coat provides abrasion resistance. Most fasteners are stainless steel, providing excellent corrosion resistance.

The Orbital 3000 is exceptionally quiet, due to efficient isolation, orbital motion and a sturdy base. With the machine running, it is possible to stand a nickel on edge at each corner of the machine.
