Silently, the year 2018 slide by with gains and pains. As we opened the calendar of year 2019, the CIPPE Oil Show come as scheduled by end of March, in Beijing International Exhibition Center, capital of China.
In the past several years, the oil and gas industry suffered a roller coaster time as the crude oil price went up and down. It was both challenge and opportunity for a promising company, like GN Solids Control, which has developed from a new solids control brand to a leading manufacturer in this market. CIPPE Oil Show is a good platform for all brands both in domestic China and abroad, and this oil show also witnessed GN’s achievements in past years. Each year, GN Solids Control would bring to CIPPE some new designs.
In year 2017, GN Company set up its second factory in the same industry zone as headquarter, and moved its shaker screen factory and centrifuge workshop to the new factroy. In CIPPE, GN Solids Control got a full range of decanter centrifuges to CIPPE, including a baby centrifuge with 9 inch diameter bowl and a big bowl centrifuge with a 30 inch diameter bowl. In fact, GN Solids Control now has a full range of decanter centrifuge products including the bowl diameters of 14 inch, 18 inch, 22 inch and even 30 inch. For the popular sizes, like the 14 inch series. 18 inch series and 22 inch series, there are both 3 and 4 L/D ratio models available.
In year 2018, GN put into market 3 models of vacuum pumps, with capacity from 10 cbm/hr to 40 cbm/hr, which is an efficient choice for transferring drilling waste, oily sludge, and even animal waste. Meanwhile, GN’s several different solutions for oily sludge were proved to be successful. In same year’s exhibition, GN’s lab OST had attracted lots of professional visitors’ eyes, and fully met clients’ requests in this field.
For CIPPE 2019, what surprise will GN bring to us?

Horizontal Screw Centrifuge, is shortly mentioned as decanter centrifuge, is widely used for many different industries for separation. GN Solids Control has been manufacturing decanter centrifuges for years, at first, those horizontal screw centrifuges made by GN Solids Control were designed for oil and gas solids control projects, then, to be used in waste management projects for both drilling cuttings and drilling fluids. In recent three years, such centrifuges are also used for oily sludge separation works.

Clients from different industries who trusted GN Solids Control are using GNLW decanter centrifuges in different projects, and GN Solids Control is also exploring more applications for GN centrifuges. Meanwhile, GN is designing different models for decanter centrifuges, not only different sizes, but also different slope angles… to meet more applications.
Recently, a client has tested his material with a GNLW Decanter centrifuge and the feedback is more than satisfactory. This customer’s work is to treat aluminum hydroxide slurry. His aluminum hydroxide slurry has a concentration from 8% to 10%, and their aim is to remove water from the aluminum hydroxide mixture and enhance the concentration up to a high level from 60% to 80%. In the raw material, there are alumina in fine particles and also dissolved sodium nitrate in water. After strict test with real material, GNLW series centrifuge could fully meet the desired separation standards.
Based on requested treating capacities, GN has various centrifuge models from 9 inch diameter centrifuge bowl to 30 inch diameter bowl, designed at high speed or mostly variable frequency. If you or clients have similar projects which are in need of such centrifuges, please contact GN directly, GN professional engineers would help with choosing a suitable centrifuge model. GN also have centrifuges suitable for beverage treatment, oil separation, food industry and etc.

A complete separation system is not only about the equipment used for separation, but also includes the equipment used for transferring material into the separation machines. A suitable and stable transferring pump ensures the efficiency of the equipment it feeds for and even greatly affects the whole system’s running.

GN Solids Control is professional in providing separation solutions, and all necessary pumps, too.
Like for the shale shakers, if the material to be treated is from the pit or pond, GN has submersible slurry pump or vacuum pumps, for the desander or desilter, GN has full series of centrifugal pumps and etc:

1. Centrifugal pumps: centrifugal pumps are the most frequently used mud transfer pumps in a solids control system, it is used for desander and desilter feeding, jet mud mixing, and trip tank filling. GNSB series sand pumps are totally interchangeable with Mission pumps even for small parts, and the raw material used for GN centrifugal pumps are most suitable for drilling mud transferring.

2. Vacuum Pump: it is also called the sludge pump or solids transfer pump, cause it can handling a material with high solids content and large particle size. It is fully mechanical driven by compressed air, and movable. It is widely used in waste management, oily sludge separation and construction.

3. Submersible slurry pump: it is used for pumping sludge from mud pit to a desander unit or other equipment, it is also an economic solution as centrifuge feeding.

4. Screw pump: GN cooperate with international famous pump brands for centrifuge feeding. Normally, in VFD control panels for decanter centrifuge, the 3rd VFD is used for the screw pump speed adjusting, and also for fixed peed screw pumps, GN also provide customized solutions by adding mechanical adjusting device.

5. For deep drilling works and some big capacity solids control system, GN has shearing pump for cutting the material with high viscosity.

If you need more information or some pumps in your project, welcome to contact GN freely.

There are several different types of drilling muds used for different drilling conditions, mainly divided into 3 types, the water based mud, oil based mud and SBM. The mostly used ones are WBM and OBM.

For deep well drillings, the OBM is most common solution. Considering it’s components, the oil based mud is more expensive than water based mud, that’s why as much as mud should be recovered from the waste. Meanwhile, the OBM is more harmful to the environment if the cuttings from drillings are not well treated before discharge. As leading manufacturer and solution provider, GN Solids Control has designed and supplied to many different end users with its professional solution for drilling cuttings treatment. For oil base mud cuttings, recently, another new set of such system was successfully use in CNPC, one of the 3 largest oil companies in China, both their engineers and operators are giving good comments.

cuttings treatment system

This system includes:

1. GNCD930 vertical cuttings dryer, which is specially designed for treating the oil based cuttings, it is like a washing machine. By using screen baskets of different mesh sizes per cuttings condition, and after the vertical cuttings dryer, the oil on cutting could be reduced to below 0.5%.

2. The second treating machine is a high speed decanter centrifuge. In this project, the end user chose GNLW363CG-VFD, a 14 inch diameter bowl decanter centrifuge, with variable speed up to 3200RPM. It is used for further treatment of drilling fluid discharged from the vertical cuttings dryer.

3. Transferring equipment. For transferring the drilling cuttings, GN has different suggestions based on customers’ jobsite layout and cuttings location. Normally, if the cuttings treatment system is alongside the rig and used for treating the cuttings direct from solids control system, screw conveyor is good choice to collect cuttings from shaker and transfer to hopper of vertical cuttings dryer. If the wed cuttings are from a pit or pond, we recommend GNSP vacuum pump.
