Ditch Magnets are tools designed to remove metal debris and particles from drilling mud that the shale shaker misses. The Ditch Magnets capture all debris having magnetic attraction and hold it until they are removed from the mud stream.
Ditch Magnets are particularly valuable during milling operations, wash overs and fishing jobs. Removal of mill cuttings and debris reduces the wear and tear of mud pumps and other equipment, as well as eliminating problems caused by the return down hole of harmful debris.
From our superb customer service to our ever growing list of products, Ditch Magnets Direct is the go to source for many oil field companies when it comes to high quality, precision manufacturing and prompt delivery of oil field related tools and products.

Position the Ditch Magnets in the mud return line and/or in the shale shaker discharge. Metal particles passing by the Ditch Magnets will be attracted, caught and retained. Ditch Magnets should be used any time metal particles may accumulate in the mud. The units should be cleaned several times per day, depending on milling rate by removing the magnet and cleaning it with a fresh or salt water hose. Wipe all cuttings from the unit and return it to duty.
