Although in recent years, a large percentage of GN Solids Control’s products are sold to different industries besides the solids control projects, solids control systems and equipment are still GN’s traditional business of which GN’s brand is still quite well known and widely accepted. And GN customers in oil and gas solids control industry are introducing some of GN new products into their traditional works.

gn powerful vacuum pumps

vacuum pumps

Vacuum pump is one of the most popular products of recent 2 years ever since GN firstly showed one of such pump with a capacity of 40 cbm/hr in CIPPE Oil Show in Beijing for year 2017. In the following year, also in CIPPE oil show, GN showed another model alongside with GNSP-40A, which had half capacity and need half air consumption, with a compact and movable design, the GNSP-20A.

The vacuum pumps are quite powerful small machine. It could handle a material with quite large particles size, as long as the particle could pass the hose’s diameter, and with some liquidate. Such like the sands and small stones. Talking about transportation power, take the GNSP-40A for instance, it can suck the material from 50 meters away and deliver it to more than 100 meters away. Now it is widely used in oily sludge separation systems in refineries, in chemical industries, for tank bottom cleaning works, and for drilling cuttings transfer in oil and gas drilling.

Comparing with other pump types, like the GNSB series centrifugal pumps GN provides for the desander/desilter feeding, for the jet mud mixing, or with the submersible slurry pumps for feeding the centrifuge and sucking mud from mud pit, the vacuum pump, although powerful, it has some shortcoming like non continuous operating. But GN engineers are working on it, in order to find some solution. Let’s see.

Shale shaker is the primary solids control equipment in drilling water recycling system used to may help drill cuttings from water. For most of the drilling website, at least two units shale shaker will be equipped: one particular for working while the various other one is for back up, or maybe both are for working reason. Some sites even have to have three or four unit shale shakers which could handle a larger circulation rate. A tandem shale shaker is designed for easy putting together and disassembling onsite. It will always be convenient for transportation whenever moving the rig.
How exactly does Tandem Shale Shaker Do the job?
The tandem shale shaker is a design of put a couple of unit single shale shakers on a skid. These a couple of unit shaker are absolutely same for easy surgery and maintenance. As the drilling water treated by the shaker system finally will go through the line mesh shaker screen and give way to the under located mud tank, the skid was made with 2 square spaces from where the drilling water could fall into the mud tank. Both shaker sections are equipped with buffer box, some sort of provided mud distributor, regardless of pipe type or package type; the drilling water could be guided to the two shakers for separation practice. It means a tandem shale shaker could handle the particular flow rate 2 times than the usual single shaker. If you want make use of this tandem shale shaker regarding smaller drill rig, you may only run either one within it and the other one is utilized in case any break down for the first unit.

What are the great things about Tandem Shale Shaker?
one Tandems shale shaker could possibly be used flexibly as per the drilling fluids flow rate.
2 . not Convenient transportation as the skid is designed with container kind fixing point so that the complete skid could be easily placed on a flat bed trailer to some where you want.
3. Easy installation along with dismount. The operator really only need use a crane to pick up the whole skid to put about the tank and take off.
That tandem shale shaker is perfect for a very big drilling organization in Middle East. “GN’s equipment is always working great. This makes our mud manufacture very happy. That is why we place repeated order to them. ” Says a director only at that drilling company. Actually, this provider is GN’s old customers and very good friends.
Besides the Duo shale shaker unit, this kind of client also ordered an abundance of centrifugal pumps, mud agitators and mud guns via GN. These equipments they fit orderly in GN solids control’s assemblage workshop, which is really eye catching. Clients need to be well confident by good machine effectiveness. Obviously, for this clients, GN did it.

Not only for oil and gas drillings, which must need a well performance solids control system of mud separation system, but also, for other drillings, like HDD, water well drilling, they also need mud cleaning systems to enhance the efficiency and to cut the cost for drilling. Even for piling and TBMs, which projects are nearer to the earth surface, a slurry separation plant or system is very necessary.

Unlike the oil and gas solids control systems and HDD mud cleaning systems which are always divided per treating capacity by GPMs, the TBM and piling slurry separation systems are divided into cubic meters per hour. Among them, the most popular and common capacities are 240 cubic meters per hour and 120 cubic meters per hour. Recently, GN Solids Control has sold to Asia market and Australia market such slurry separation systems.

This 240 cubic meter slurry separation system is combined with following equipments and components:

GNZY705E-Y2S desander mud cleaner. The lower deck is as the shale shaker, with comparably coarse screens, as recommended mesh number 25. The upper deck is the under shaker for the desander cones, with mesh number 60. On the lower deck, there are 3 pieces of screens, while on the upper deck there are 2 pieces of screens. The 2 desander cones are made of high quality PU for a longer service life.

Feeding pump for the desander cones, decided by the capacity, there is always equipped a 55kw centrifugal pump, in some cases, in order to cut the power consumption, we could also use a submersible slurry pump for alternative, with 45KW power consumption.

A tank under the equipment, with very compact design. After removing the desander cones, this slurry separation system could be shipped in a 20ft container.


This above mentioned system is economic configuration of this capacity. For same capacity systems, GN also has higher configuration with mixing system, mud agitators and mud guns. Customers could choose suitable configurations per jobsite condition.

Liquid mud plant is a very popular and useful tank configuration for drilling companies and waste management companies or drilling mud companies for Oil and Gas field. It is used for storage drilling mud, keeping the suitable mud proportion and also adding and mixing the drilling mud.

GN Solids Control ,as the second to none solids control manufacturer in China, has rich experience in designing LMP, and can provide complete equipments needed in a LMP. GN is glad to share with you some information for Liquid Mud Plant.


See GN’s LMP

In a normal configuration of LMP, below elements are necessary:

  1. Mud tank, as the most important application of LMP is for storage drilling mud, the mud tank is no doubt the most essential part. The QTY and dimension of tanks are customized by end user, and GN engineers always gives most suitable and economic solution for it.

  2. Mud agitators, which is the typical equipment for stirring the drilling mud from settling ,in order to keep an ideal proportion of mud. GNJBQ series mud agitator is very popular, not only used in solids control systems and LMPs, but always purchased by such companies sperately.

  3. Mud gun, used together with mud agitator, always one agitator is matched with one mud gun. Functions for mud gun is same as mud agitator.

  4. Jet mud mixer or shear mixer, combined with a centrifugal pump & jet hopper or shear pump & jet hopper, for adding new ingredient into drilling mud in case of necessary.

  5. Solids control decanter centrifuge. It is always an option but not a must. For some drilling mud companies or waste management companies, the drilling mud comes form jobsite only after treatment of solids control system until the desilter step, so in this case, it is necessary to further separate out the solids particles before letting the muMud tank, d enter the mud system.

Each year, GN Solids Control provides the customers numbers of such systems, both domestic and abroad. With GN’s years of experience and research, GN’s systems and all GN products are being more and more popular in the field.
