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.

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.

GN Solids Control is a famous brand who started from solids control equipment manufacturing, and now also professional in separation solution provider in nearly all fields including the oil gas drilling projects, HDD projects, TBM works, piling, water well drilling, drilling cuttings treatment, drilling fluids treatment and other industrial separation works.

GN EQUIPMENT WORKING VIDEOS
But still, among all the applications GN Solids Control’s products are used for, the traditional solids control system and equipment still occupies a large ratio among all GN’s products of each year, especially for the high standard clients, GN Solids Control is still their favorite and reliable supplier. For example, the Asian and Parcific market, like in Australia, New Zealand and India, where their standards are even higher than the USA and Europe.
In Australia, there are some special and difficult to reach standards, including the electric cable connections and layout, the tank surface treatment, the material choosing and even stair positioning. But GN Solids Control has rich experiences in working with Australia and New Zealand and also is well known by those clients. That’s why, during the past years, GN Solids Control has sold to Australia more than 30 sets of mud systems, not including the single equipment like decanter centrifuges and vertical cuttings dryers.

GN RECENT PROJECT NEWS
India is also a special market, India has talent management team and also brilliant engineers, they set up a high standard for their equipment, especially in oil and gas industries. For example, the shale shaker material, they always request the stainless steel as the material of the shaker frame. Although there are local solids control manufacturers in local India, still, clients are coming to GN for the suitable models and solutions. Even in Middle East, the management from big Middle East countries who are Indians prefer to choose GN Solids Control as manufacturer.

The service companies or project contractors are always very strict on choosing equipment manufacturers, because a good manufacturer is not only about the image and reputation, the more important thing is, the good performance of the equipment. Like for the oil and gas drilling, working on the rig means continuously operating and any unexpected failure comes at big cost.
In many projects which are in need of separation works, the shale shakers play a very important role. For example, in oil and gas drilling solids control projects, the shale shaker take over more than half of separating work, and in HDD or TBM projects, a shaker is always the first or even only separation step, even in drilling cuttings waste management projects, a high-G shaker with a 8.0G force are head in the queue.

GN NEW ORDER FOR SOLIDS CONTROL EQUIPMENT

GNZJ series shale shakers have following features:
1. High G force to ensure a good performance and good separation results. With Italy brand Oli as professional vibrating motors, GN shale shakers could reach a G force up to 7.5, and according to the jobsite condition, this G force is adjustable.
2. A strong structure of shaker deck made of stainless steel, instead of normal steel. Only a strong structure could endure the high G force vibration. That’s why GN shale shakers have a longer service life.
3. API RP 13C shaker screens with composite material frame. GN now make all its frame screens with composite material frames, it has a longer service life than steel frame ones, and the conductance is much larger. With same screen area, the unblocked area is much larger than steel frame ones.
Those above mentioned are only several features and advantages of GN shale shaker and shaker screens, since space here is limited, if you need more information about GN company and products, welcome to visit our website or contact us by email, telephone or fax directly.
