This is another May, with fully blossomed flowers and bright sunshine. The city famous of oil and gas technology, the Houston City in Texas, USA, held again the OTC Oil Show. As usual, one of the biggest oil shows in the world attracted exhibitors all over the world with their newest technologies, and attracted the visitors from big players in this industry.
As one of the leading solids control and waste management solution provider, GN Solids Control and GN Solids America both attended this year’s OTC and showed their best seller equipment and newest designs of the year.
In this year’s OTC, GN has 2 stands, one is at Center No. 4361 and the other at Arena 8341. In those 2 stands, same as before, GN showed the new products and new designs. But the core equipment are designed with new improvement, while the newly designed equipment are soon becoming well known to the market.
This year, GN has brought to OTC following equipment:

  1. GN Shale shaker and high G shakers. By using 2 sets of electrical vibrator with a total power lower than 4 kw, the shale shaker takes the heaviest burden for separating the most of cuttings. Per shaker screen quantity, GN shale shakers are designed in several models: GNZS752 with 2 screens, GNZS703 with 3 screens, GNZS594 with 4 screens, and GNZS706 with 2 layer deck and 6 screens.
    Among those shaker models, there are normal shakers with 7.5G G-force and high G shakers with G force up to 8.5G.
  2. GN Decanter Centrifuges, GN has a full range of decanter centrifuge from 9 inch diameter bowl to 30 inch diameter bowl. Based on different applications, with different requests of cleanness and dryness, GNLW series decanter centrifuges, although those with same bowl diameter, are designed with different cone angles.
    Besides the traditional equipment, this year, GN also brought to OTC new products like ViST Vacuum Shaker Device and the newly improved vacuum pumps.

Do you have a liquid mud plant? Do you use mud tanks? Do you have some challenges to clean your mud tanks after using them? How do you solve this problem? GN now have a solution: an automatic tank cleaning system
Many people are faced to such questions, and lots of them are enduring an unhappy experience with the tank cleaning works. There is so much wet dirt with different components settled onto the bottom of mud tanks, especially in the corners. For example, in a drilling rig solids control system, a lot of mud agitators and mud guns are running day and night for stirring up the drilling fluids from settling down to the bottom. But none object can avoid the gravity, that’s why there is always some sediment left in the tanks to be clean, especially in the shaker tank, in where the drilling mud contains a big portion of solid particles. Although, in some projects, the shaker tanks are customized into different shapes, like a triangle bottom or an oval one, which helps to reduce the sediment volume a bit, at an obvious storage capacity loss.
In order to help solve this problem, GN Solids Control has designed and put into reality an automatic tank cleaning system. It has a high pressure washing device to flush out the sediment inside tanks, and pumped to a separation device. The discharged materials are much dryer and easier for transportation, and more important, they are outside the tank. By adding some chemicals into the sediments, the solids phase and liquid phase could be leveled and some specially made separator is used to separate them from each other. GN also has a further separation device to divide oil from water.
GN Solids Control is leading brand for many kinds of separation, like the mud recycling system for oil and gas, HDD, TBM and CBM, the oily sludge separation and the drilling cuttings waste management and also drilling fluids’ separation.

Shale shakers are the first equipment to be used in a complete solids control system for oil and gas drilling. A middle sized drilling rig need at least 2 shale shakers, some big rigs even need 3 sets of shakers, among which 2 are to be used continuously and 1 for back-up. In traditional views, the best shale shakers always come from the USA brands or European brands, and as the standards setting groups, the USA or European solids control manufacturers always have the full range of certifications requested in this industry. But in the past decade, some Chinese companies are doing better and better, and GN Solids Control is the leading one from China who has the most complete range of certificates and an international standard for manufacturing.


GN Solids Control is the first API certified manufacturer for solids control equipment, and GN Solids Control has got its systems and equipment to be certified by DNV CE, and Russia CU-TR. GN Solids Control is also the manufacturer who has got ISO, HSE, with responsibility for the environment and wellbeing for the society.

GN Solids America is the first USA based solids control brand from China. And GN products are being more and more popular in the USA market. With the equal international standards, GN equipment and systems have been exported to more than 70 countries in the world.


Shale shakers are one of GN core products. GN has full range of shaker models with 2 pieces of shaker screens (GNZS752), 3 pieces of shaker screens (GNZS703), 4 pieces of shaker screens (GNZS594) and double deck shaker screens (GNZS706). For different applications, GN shakers are equipped by different feeding types, like hopper feeder, top feeder and weir feeder.

Besides shale shaker, GN also has high performance decanter centrifuge, vertical cuttings dryer and shaker screens.

Where there is a drilling, there are drilling cuttings. And all drilling cuttings need to be well treated, which means the oil or any other additional drilling agents should be removed as much as possible and the polluted soil, need to be discharged safely, if not safe enough to be returned to where it is from.
In many countries in the world, the drilling cuttings waste management system is a compulsory procedure in an oil and gas drilling project, alongside the drilling rig.

A drilling rig solids control system normally contains several steps for separation: shale shaker, desander cones, desilter cones and one or two decanter centrifuges. Among those, the shale shakers take the heaviest separating duty, for choosing out all solids particles bigger than 100 microns. While the desander and desilter, by using their 10 inch and 4 inch cones, are used to choose out particles of 70 and 20 microns. Barite in the drilling fluid is recovered by a middle speed decanter centrifuge, while fine particles are to be handled by a high speed decanter centrifuge.
In practice, most of discharges are from the shale shakers and those discharges are quite wet, too wet to be disposed or even transported. A vertical cuttings dryer is mainly used for treating the disposals from the shale shakers. GNCD930E-GP vertical cuttings dryer is quite efficient in this work, it could reduce the OOC to be less than 0.5%. After the vertical cuttings dryer, there should be a high speed decanter centrifuge to treat the discharged liquid phase from the vertical cuttings dryer, for separating out the fine particles which are left. Here, a GNLW363CG-VFD centrifuge is quite an ideal option.
Recently, GN Solids Control just finished the manufacture for several sets of such drilling cuttings separation units, now they are ready to be delivered to Russia.

Just recently, GN Solids Control just finished building of a 3rd Lab Oily Sludge Treatment Unit, one of the many sets of different models GN has provided to different clients in different countries. And this set of OST is customized for a domestic client, in their customized color, with their customized equipment list.

GN has several different optional models for the oily sludge treatment solutions. Being divided by equipment, GN has some specific equipment for each application, for example, the shale shaker is always the first step for separation, which is used to move out the most solids by using the correct meshes. Centrifuge is an essential part of the complete system, which is used to separate out the fine particles from 2 micron to 5 micron. Between the shale shaker and the centrifuge, if there are extra fine particles even smaller than 2 to 5 microns, then there should be a chemical dosing unit to help with feeding the centrifuge, for flocculating the extra fine particles to be separated by centrifuge. An inclined plate clarifier is also efficient for reducing the particle content entering the centrifuge, enhance to raise the efficiency of centrifuge. After the centrifuge, there is an oil water separator to final separate the oil and water.
Another option equipment allocation is almost same in procedure but different in choosing equipment. In this new design, before the shaker, there is a pre-heating unit for helping to reduce the viscosity of oily sludge. And a chemical dosing unit could add chemical into pipelines both before and after shaker (before centrifuge) per sludge conditions. The oil water separation procedure is simplified by a disc stac.
In both solutions, the oil is to be recycled, the water is to be reused into unit while the solids could be safer and easier treated.
