Just after GN Solids Control successfully brought out the powerful vacuum pump with a 40 cbm per hour transporting capacity, GN just released another vacuum pump, with smaller footprint and more portable than last one, with a treating capacity optional at 10 cbm per hour or 20 cbm per hour.

powerful pump for slurry transferring

GNSP Slurry Pump

A vacuum pump is quite suitable for the sludge transferring. It could transfer the material with solids content up to 80%, that’s why it is also called a solids pump. It could be used for different applications and job conditions including but not limited to:
1. Drilling cuttings from the solids control system, like the shale shaker, mud cleaner and etc.
2. It could be used for the drilling mud transportation.
3. For the drilling waste pit cleaning work, when transferring the pit bottom material.
4. Tank cleaning, like the crude oil tank cleaning, frac tank cleaning and etc.
5. It is quite suitable for oily sludge separation systems for the high density and high viscosity material transferring.
6. Animal waste transportation.
In a word, this vacuum pump is suitable for quite comprehensive industries, because of its several features:
It can handle large particles: with particle size up to 50mm.
High density: up to 80% solids content.
Long distance: this pump could suck material from 50 meters away and transfer to 500 meters’ distance.
Besides its powerful performances, it is also a safest solution. It is fully air operated. During operation, there is no need for electricity in the whole procedure. That’s why it could be used in Zone 1 area. Inside the pump, there’s no movable part. By using an air compressor of different air supply capacity, this same model GNSP-20A vacuum pump can give 2 different transferring capacities, respectively 10 cbm per hour and 20 cbm per hour.
Cause each jobsite has a different layout design. Client could choose a fixed pump or a portable one. Comparing with the GNSP-40A, the larger vacuum pump, this portable GNSP-20A vacuum pump equipped with wheels is more popular than the fixed one.

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.

Per experiences and calculated data, the drilling liquid occupies in any well drilling is between 4 percentage to 10 percentages, no matter in onshore drillings or offshore drillings. Considering its effects on the drilling operation performance, which occupies nearly 50 percentages, the drilling fluid is quite vital to the drilling.

GN Waste Management Equipment

That’s why, a professional drilling manager has to have a professional team for the drilling mud services, or find a qualified drilling fluid service company. In practice, drilling companies or drilling contractors always focus on drilling work, and employing a subcontractor for the solids control system. Each drilling rig has eight systems connected to each other, among which, the solids control system is comparably independent. An expertized drilling fluid company has the right personnel and suitable equipment, and more important, they know how to treat the fluid well.

A professional oil service companies provide following services:
1. Solids control equipment and services. The solids control systems help to treat the drilling fluid directly from the well mouth. It contains three or four phases for separation, including the shale shaker as the first phase, the desander cones as the second phase, the desilter cones as the third. Some include the decanter centrifuge as the forth one. In most solids control systems, there are mixing unit for adding more chemicals into the fluid when necessary.
2. Drilling cuttings waste management systems, in some countries, this part is also regarded as a part of solids control, because this is also for treating the solids from the drilling fluid. Those systems always contains the vertical cuttings dryer, the high G drying shaker and the decanter centrifuge.
3. Drilling fluid waste management, it is the further treatment for the drilling fluid. As the fluid has been used for a long time, this system uses some chemicals to flocculate the extra fine particles into larger ones before being separated out by a decanter centrifuge.
As one of the leading manufacturers of solids control and waste management, GN Solids Control has been providing lots of oil service companies in the world for all above mentioned systems and equipment. For more information or a formal quotation, welcome to contact GN directly.
