Each year, GN Solids Control produces and provided more than 200 sets for shale shakers for drilling rig solids control systems in more than 70 countries and regions in the world. Some equipment are exported together with GN’s system, some are exported separately to replace the old ones for existing system, or when clients are building tanks locally.

GN Shale Shaker System for Australia
Recently, just in last month, GN Solids Control has shipped a complete mud solids control system to an Australian drilling company, and this system now is approaching the destination port in Australia, and is schedule to be put into use in early March. Besides the basic functions a solids control system could provide, this system for Australia must meet some extra requests specific to Australia and New Zealand projects, like the cable laying rules, the distances between each stair and etc. GN Solids Control has an engineer team with rich experiences and a strict QC department to survey the producing procedure and final products, that’s why clients are always happy with GN. In the past years, GN has provided to Australia and New Zealand many systems, including but not limited to following typical ones:

1. Webster drilling’s solids control system, which was fabricated by GN Solids Control years ago.

2. A helicopter lifting system with accurately calculated weights for each tank unit.

3. A 400BBL system with 2 mud tanks and 1 mixing hopper skid with limited height and minimum storage capacity.

And in HDD industry, GN Solids Control has delivered more than 30 sets of complete mud systems to Australia and GN Solids Control is the most famous Chinese brands, and one of the best known among international brands.
Shaker screen is another popular product GN provides to Australian market. Last year when GN upgraded the screen producing line and started to make all frame screens with composite material frames.

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.

GN Solids Control is one of the leading brands for solids control and waste management system, and second to none ranks among Chinese manufacturers in this industry. A lot of worldwide famous oil companies and oil drilling companies are using GN equipment and comprehensive solutions, including SINOPEC, CNPC and COSL. Recently, GN delivered main equipment for 2 sets of drilling cuttings waste management systems for CNPC.

GN BIG BOWL CENTRIFUGE FOR CNPC

Drilling cuttings are solids discharge from the drilling rig solids controls system, from the shakers, desander and desilters. After the solids control system’s first 3 phases separating, the drilling fluids are returned back to the system without the solids particle. But the separated-out particles are still too wet. For one thing, it is a waste for valuable drilling fluid. Secondly, it could damage to the environment if disposed directly. That’s why it is not only necessary but also mandatory to do some further treatment for the drilling cuttings.
GN Solids Control has zero discharge solutions for both WBM and OBM. And this order, combining the vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuge, is for the oil based mud. A vertical cuttings dryer is specially designed for the oil based mud separation. GNCD930 series vertical cuttings dryers could dry the drilling cuttings to reach OOC value to 5%. The vertical cuttings dryer is running as the drying step of a washing machine. The vertical cuttings dryer is equipped with a screen basket with certain mesh number. Fluids pass the mesh and collected, while cuttings are stopped by mesh and falls down.
GNLW series decanter centrifuges with VFD control panels are used after the vertical cuttings dryer to remove the particles from 2 to 5 microns from the liquid. Most common model is GNLW363CG-VFD, a medium sized centrifuge with a high rotating speed. But for bigger treating capacity, GN has GNLW453C-VFD and GNLW553-VFD available, both of high rotating speed while bowl sizes are respectively 18 inch and 22 inch. In this project, clients chose GNLW453C-VFD.
Pls contact GN for more information.

Does a HDD mud recycling system need a decanter centrifuge? How to use the decanter centrifuge for HDD?

In most cases, there is no need to use a decanter centrifuge in a HDD mud recycling system. One thing is because the drilling mud for HDD project is not as complicated as the mud for the oil and gas solids control, and even in some oil and gas solids control systems, there is no centrifuge. The second is because that the cost for a decanter centrifuge is high, the centrifuge itself is more expensive than other equipment, and the centrifuge need professional staff to operate it and need more careful maintenance.

Centrifuge for HDD

GN Mud Recycling Systems for HDD, CBM and other drillings.

But according to the newly established laws and registrations in a lot of countries, the treating result is of higher standard than before, and now it is quite necessary to employ a decanter centrifuge for HDD mud recycling system. Like in China, the leading HDD contractor CPP added into their new mud recycling system a decanter centrifuge.
GNLW452C is a quite suitable model as a HDD decanter centrifuge, it is used after the desilter cones and the middle speed centrifuge is to separate out the particles from 5 to 7 microns. The big bowl design enables GNLW452 to have a large capacity.

If we have an existing HDD mud recycling system, how can we add a GNLW452 into it?

GN has solutions and the design was well tested at jobsite. The GNLW452 could be mounted on a skid and a screw pump and the control panel ( as a VFD control panel) is mounted on skid, below the centrifuge. The screw pump is used to feed the centrifuge from desilter cone. Solids discharge are collected and liquid flows back to desilter tank. This circle also helps to reduce the mud weight.

For more information, welcome to contact GN.
