It is a common knowledge that in the solids control system for a drilling rig, no matter for the land rigs or for the offshores, the shale shaker plays the most important role for separating out the solids waste from the mud recycling unit, and it is also the shale shaker which waste the most of the liquid on the cuttings discharged from the shaker. That’s why, in many countries, there is a must to equip another drilling cuttings treatment system alongside the rig.
A drilling cuttings waste management system is used for further separation of the drilling waste discharged from the shale shaker and mud cleaner, most of which are from the shakers. For one thing, the drilling cuttings waste management system helps to dry the cuttings for later transportation, on the other hand, it increased the drilling liquid amount to be recycled. Both are saving money. In case of OBM mud, the operators always need a vertical cuttings dryer and a high speed decanter centrifuge, while for WBM mud, operators always use a high G drying shaker and a decanter centrifuge.
In some cases, the ViST Shaker screen device could replace the drilling cuttings waste management system, or at least to some degree, reduced the work for the cuttings separation works. Generally speaking, the ViST shaker screen device has following advantages:

ViST shaker device

1. It is suitable for both WBM and OBM mud in a solids control system.
2. It is a compact structure, and only use an air compressor as power source, and one set of ViST could serve up to 3 sets of shale shakers.
3. It is designed to be suitable for different shaker models.
4. In practice, it helps to save the liquid amount by 30% to 50%.
Now for GNZS703 and GNZS594 series shale shakers, there are ViST device for option.

The augers are also called the screw conveyors, they are used in GN drilling cuttings waste management system as a matching equipment alongside with vertical cuttings dryers and decanter centrifuges.
In some rig sites, it is requested by the law that for each drilling rig, there must be a set of drilling cuttings waste management system, and totally in the rig site, there should be at least 2 augers: first one is below the discharge chutes of shale shakers, desander cones and desilter cones, that is used to collect the cuttings. Second one is used as a sloping angle to transfer the cuttings from the first one to the vertical cuttings dryer. In a word, the augers could be positioned sloping or horizontal for different destinations. In a word, GNSC screw conveyors could work in a group or singly, and they could be used for mixing, allocating, dewatering, discharging and etc.

gn augers

As an essential part of a waste management system, in order to well match the other equipment and easy for transportation and locating, all GN screw conveyor models are designed in same length sections, each of 12 ft. And they are of different diameters for providing different transferring capacities. There are 10 inch diameters, 12 inch diameters, 14 inch diameters and 16 inch diameters. In this condition, most of spare parts are interchangeable, which reduced the spare parts cost and enhanced the convenience for the end users. GNSC series screw conveyors are using the wear proof material for a obviously longer service life than its peers’.
GNSC series screw conveyors are not only used in the drilling cuttings waste management systems, they are also quite widely used in construction, chemical, power plants, coal mining and other industries. In some customized conditions, GN could also add the insolation layer to the augers to keep the temperature at a certain range.

Just not long ago, GN Solids Control who owns are quite professional R&D team in solids control industry, has developed and got patented of a series of ViST Vacuum Shakers. It would be a new page of solids control industry, because the ViST vacuum shaker will greatly reduce the drilling cutting proportion and enhance the treating performance during solids control.
Here is the working video of GN ViST Vacuum Shaker.
Here are the main parameters of GN ViST vacuum shaker:
1. Pressure of air source: 0.7-1.0 Mpa, equal to 100 to 150 psi
2. Air consumption: 4.5 cbm/min, equal to 160CFM
3. Matching shaker quantity: 2 or 3 sets
4. Suitable mud: all types of mud including SBM, OBM and WBM
5. Mud recycling ratio: 30 to 50 percentage
6. Mud temperature from minus 15 degrees to 85 degrees centigrade
7. Control type: automatic pneumatic control
8. No electrical power needed

Features and advantages of GN ViST Vacuum Shaker:
1. Wide application for all mud type including WBM, OBM and SBM.
2. It is suitable for both land rigs and offshore rigs, to enhance the working efficiency of the shake shakers, to recycle the drilling fluid to the most while discharge the cuttings to the least.
3. A ViST shaker could replace the drying shaker at a lower cost comparing with drying shaker.
4. Small footprint, even no extra space needed when added onto existing shakers, which is very important for offshore conditions.
5. Easy for installation for both GN’s own shakers and other brands’ shakers.
6. By using a ViST devise, the solids control shale shaker can use shaker screens with larger API number without leaking, in order to enhance the treating efficiency.
7. By discharging dryer cuttings, it would be easier for transport or discharge the drilling cuttings.
8. Easy to be operated by one operator only.

Moscow, the capital of Russia, is famous of its rich history and cool weather. But recently, it is heated up because of its role as the host of FIFA 2018. 32 top football teams are gathering in Moscow, occupying the full attention of the whole world.
Meanwhile, another things is also warmed up in Moscow, which is the oil and gas market. As the gradually raising of the crude oil price, as the world’s second largest oil reserving country, Russia’s oil and gas marketed is providing more and more opportunities.
GN Solids Control has been supporting Russian Market for many years, and GN products are well known in Russian market:


1. The traditional solids control equipment: GN Solids Control has provided to Russian market many sets of complete solids control systems, including the shale shaker, mud cleaner, mud mixing unit including the centrifugal pumps, mud mixing hoppers, mud agitators, mud guns and etc. Some end users are building tanks by themselves or build tanks locally, but they trust GN Solids Control’s quality, so they prefer to buy from GN for the equipment.
2. Drilling cuttings waste treatment systems: GN provides 2 different solutions for drilling cuttings waste management , for water based mud and for oil based mud. In Russian, OBM is more widely used, that’s why the OBM drilling cuttings waste management systems are more popular. GN has provided more than 10 sets of such systems including GNCD930 series cuttings dryers and GNLW363 series decanter centrifuges and their feeding pumps.
3. GN Shaker Screens: in GN’s shaker screen factory, the automatic shaker screen producing line makes composite material frame screens for all main shaker models all over the world, including GN own models and other brands like Derrik, Mongoose, Cobra and etc.
Enjoy your World Cup 2018 and have a prospective year 2018.
