GN Solids Control, ever since its establishment, always set its goal as China Intelligence. Each year, GN Solids Control’s R&D team make into reality some new designs and those are always proven to be practical and efficient. For example, in last year’s CIPPE, GN took to exhibition a 30 inch bowl decanter centrifuge and a fully hydraulic decanter centrifuge, and in this year, the 30 inch decanter centrifuge was soon put into use in a TBM project and was proved to be a success and good comments from client. This year, the new equipment GN brought to CIPPE 2018 including following:
1. Mini oily sludge separation system, including pre-heating step, chemical dosing step, shaker for separating the large particles, decanter centrifuge for separating our the fine particles and a three phase centrifuge for further separating the oil, water and solids. After those treatments, the OOC could reach 2%, solids and water in oil is less than 3% and oil in water is between 50-100 ppm. By using the pipelines and valves, the chemical could be dosed both before and after shaker, and the light material before entering the decanter centrifuge could by pass the centrifuge to reduce the burden of centrifuge.
2. Vacuum pump. Vacuum pump is not exactly a new product of the year, cause last year, GN already put it into use. But this year, GN improved it and gave it to jobsite for test. It is excellent. It could transfer even solids, with a small character to flow. That’s why it is called a solids pump with wide applications.
3. GN full range of shaker screens for GN own brand shakers and other famous brands. For the frame screens, GN already upgraded them into composite material frame ones, for the hook ones, GN is upgrading them now.
4. GN core products including shale shaker, vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuges of big bowl and medium size.

Drilling waste management is one of the core system GN Solids Control produces, it includes the drilling cuttings separation and also the drilling fluids separation. Dewatering unit, which is also called chemical dosing unit is one of the important components of the drilling fluid treatment systems.

In some countries and regions, it is a must that a drilling rig must be accompanied with a dewatering unit and a dewatering centrifuge, for one thing, more drilling mud could be recycled, which means to reduce the cost and save money. For another thing, it is reducing the harmful components to be discharged to the soil or environment, it helps to protect the surroundings.

GN Solids Control has been providing the dewatering unit for many years, and the dewatering unit now are more and more widely used for different applications, such as:

1. Oil and gas drilling fluids separation. After being used for a certain time, there are more and more extra fine particles in the drilling fluids, even too fine to be separated out by a centrifuge. By adding some chemicals into the fluid, the extra fine particles flocculate into bigger ones to be separated out by centrifuge.

2. In TBM, Piling and other projects, when the slurry is of higher viscosity or need to be added with some chemicals, the dewatering unit is playing an important role, just as shown in the picture, the treatment was successful.

3. In oily sludge separation projects, the added chemicals helps to separate the oil from the cuttings, which greatly increase the efficiency of centrifuge and oil water separator.

GNLW Series decanter centrifuge, especially GNLW363G-VFD, GNLW553-VFD centrifuges are always ideal choice for working together with dewatering unit. Besides those models, GN also has centrifuges with bigger length-diameter ratio for clearer separation.

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.
