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.

A solidification unit or called solidification system is an efficient and economic solution for the treatment of drilling cuttings from both oil based mud and water based mud. Besides, it could also handle the sludge from some cuttings or waste pit. The principle is not so complicated, but the performance and continuous working ability are defining a solidification unit.

GN newest solidification unit ready for delivery

Since three years ago when GN Solids Control firstly designed and put into use the first set of GNGH Solidification unit, with the valuable feedbacks and experiences from both domestic China and abroad, GN improved the solidification unit several times. In a result, it is now more human oriented and easier to operate. This ready for delivery solidification unit is a newly designed one, and it would be its first show on client’s jobsite in a few days. It has following features comparing with previous design:

 

GN Solidification Unit System
1. It is more compact than before, with a smaller cuttings feeding hopper just above the coulter mixer the solidification unit itself are changed from two pieces into one piece. It is easier for transportation and later rig up on jobsite after transportation.
2. This new one is automatically controlled by a PLC control panel. All electrical components from brand Schneider, ABB or Siemens. Main operating data could be seen clearly on the screen and touching screen is easy for operators to control.
3. Mixing time could be controlled automatically and manually. Comparing with last model, this one is equipped with an electrical valve on discharge port of the unit, by using this, the operator could control the time period for the material to stay in the mixer for a better and adjustable mixing result.
4. Three VFD’s for the feeding. In this system, there are 3 feeding hoppers, all of which are VFD controlled by the control panel, then the fed proportion of chemicals, cement and cuttings could be adjusted according to the on time being conditions.
If you visit GN in recent days, you can check this system by yourself.

Ever since long time ago, perhaps since the Chinese silk dealers explored the silk roads, or since the Columbus firstly discovered the new continent, the world had become smaller and smaller. The trade and sharing of information between different nations are not only the causes but also the results of mutual understanding. As the modern transportations like vehicles, express railways and airplanes becoming possible, the international trade is more frequent and much easier than before.


The international exhibitions are one of the facilities which help the international trade. According to the different exhibition types, there are general exhibitions and professional exhibitions based on certain industries. As the boost of oil and gas exploration, the exhibitions for oil and gas are one important group among the exhibitions.
Most famous 3 Oil and Gas exhibitions:
1. OTC in Houston, USA. This exhibition is held in May in every year, and it is located in the center of oil and gas technologies. Also, Houston occupies most of active drilling rigs in the US. In this exhibition you could see the most advanced technologies and newly designed machineries.
2. ADIPEC in Abu Dhabi. Middle East countries have the largest oil reserve share in the world. As the capital of the most open countries in Middle East, Abu Dhabi has more than 95% of the oil reservation in UAE. This exhibition is held in every November of year, when the weather in Middle East is quite nice. All companies, the drilling contractors, equipment manufacturers, and service companies attend this exhibition.
3. CIPPE in Beijing, in each March. It is also one of the largest exhibitions in oil and gas industry. Because most of the machineries involved with oil and gas industry are made in China or at least OEM in China.
Besides these 3 exhibitions, there are Australia Oil show in Feb., MOIGE in Moscow in June, Iran Oil Show in May, Indonesia Oil Show in Aug, and etc.

GNGN Solidification Unit

GNGN Solidification Unit

Based on the clients’ request in treating the drilling cuttings, GN continuously designed the vertical cuttings dryer for the solids discharged from the solids control system, and the decanter centrifuges application in the same system and also the high-G drying shaker and decanter centrifuge configurations. In the past year, GN designed and put into use a new solidification unit, which is specially for the final treatment of drilling cuttings from the water based mud.

solidification unit was firstly tested and used at a domestic jobsite, and with the valuable feedback from the client and end user, GN updated the design and enlarged the treating capacity by 50%, then it was used in an oversea jobsite by a world top oil serve company. The update was proved to be practical and the treating result was satisfactory. After that, GN updated the design again. Now the new design has better than last design in performance but the structure is more compact.

Besides the solidification unit, GN Solids Control’s products also covers:

  1. complete solids control line of drilling rig, including shale shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, mud mixing unit, decanter centrifuge and all necessary pumps.
  2. waste management systems for the drilling cuttings like the vertical cuttings dryer, high-G drying shaker, decanter centrifuge and screw conveyors.
  3. solidification unit and TDU units, respectively for final treatment for water based mud and oil based mud.

4, dewatering unit and dewatering centrifuge for the treatment of drilling mud after recycled from the solids control system.

In all, GN Solids Control would like to provide a turn-key solution for your project in this field.
