GN Vertical Cuttings Dryers and Decanter Centrifuges Working for SINOPEC Soon

Not long ago, 3 sets of GNCD930C vertical cuttings dryers
and 3 sets of GNLW363 decanter centrifuges were
transported to Shandong Province, and soon they will be working at SINOPEC
jobsite there like a complete set of waste management system.

SINOPEC, CNPC and COSL are 3 Oil giants in
China, which are no doubt also ranked among the TOP 100 international Oil
Companies. They are national owned companies. As a private owned company, it’s
not easy for GN Solids Control to get big projects orders from them without a
high standard quality. But GN made it, not only once. In fact, every year, GN
Solids Control has got large orders directly from the oil giants both in
domestic China and outside China. Besides this, GN
Solids Control’s solids control systems
, waste management systems and
other equipments are working with rig packages or so for the oil giants’
service companies, like Baker Hudges, who is working at Nabors’ jobsite with 4
sets of GN Waste Management Systems.

Talking about Baker Hudges, before year
2014, they seldom purchased solids control or waste management equipment from China,
but they paid an eye to Chinese manufacturers for a while. In year 2014, when
they considered to buy from China, they sent engineers from their Headquarter
of USA, visiting and inspecting all the main solids control manufacturers in
China, and finally chose GN Solids Control as the supplier. Before their
equipments dispatched from factory, their engineers also come to inspect. Now
the waste management systems are performing satisfying in their extremely cold

And such systems are working well at many
places, like in South America, in Middle East, in Africa and in China main
land. Single equipments are more, to more than 60 countries and regions. Below
are some links for jobsite working video for your more information.

The main equipment in the system like
centrifuge, has more than one application, you could check it on page of
centrifuge. And in case of WBM only, you can also change the vertical cuttings
dryer into a High-G shaker to save cost.

Wide Range of Applications of GNLW363 Centrifuge Decanting

The working principle of decanter
is by different centrifugal force comes from the different
size of material separated by centrifugal forces generated by high speed
rotation. There are 2 phase centrifuges and 3 phase centrifuges. Depending on
the industries, there are centrifuges for food industry, for oil and gas
industry and for cement industry and etc.

In field of oil and gas, the centrifuge
decanters are divided into several different but related fields, including oil
and gas solids control
, drilling cuttings waste management
and zero discharge dewatering unit. Among all sizes of oil and gas centrifuge
decanters, there most popular and practical and economic size is 14 inch bowl
diameter and 51 inch long decanter centrifuge, with a high rotating speed up to

GNLW363 decanter centrifuge now is in its 3rd
generation, the new product has combined a lot of new designs and the feedback
suggestions from the end user all over the world. In case of VFD controlled
models, it could be used at a middle speed as a solids control centrifuge for
recover the barites and at a high speed as a waste management decanter
centrifuge and dewatering centrifuge when treating out the fine solids. Even in
case of fixed speed, such applications could be met easily by using the back up
pulley and belt at 2 extra speeds, optional at 1800RPM, 2200 RPM and 2700 RPM. For
both fixed speed GNLW363 and VFD control panel GNLW363, there are 2 optional
models of economic one and premium one for you to choose from, depending on
your budget and jobsite condition.

Besides the GNLW363 decanter centrifuge,
there are also other models of centrifuges manufactured by GN Solids Control,
including the big bowl single motor centrifuge GNLW452, middle speed centrifuge
especially for barite recovery in solids control system, and GNLW453 and
GNLW553 big bowl VFD controlled decanter centrifuge with a large treating
capacity, and also, GNLW223 baby centrifuge, mostly for mining and diamond drilling,
and sometimes for TBM slurry units’ further separation.

High Configuration 500GPM Mud Systems for HDD Rigs

Among all the fields that GN Solids Control
is professional in, HDD Rig’s mud recycling systems or
units are one of the most important and specialist one. Since its establishment
years ago, GN has been providing large HDD contractors in and out of China.
Now, like the largest HDD project contractor in China, CPP, is a long-term
client of GN Solids Control, at beginning of this year, CPP signed order to GN
Solids Control, with 8 sets of 500 GPM mud recycling system, with the highest

Each year, GN will produce tens of such
systems, mostly for clients from market abroad, like Australia, Thailand,
Singapore, India, Kuwait, and some countries in Africa. GN has a series of
mature products of mud recycling systems for HDD, with most popular treating
capacity as 200 GPM, 350 GPM and 500 GPM. Of those, 500 GPM systems are most
frequently used in China.

For the same capacity systems, 500 GPM, GN
has different configurations for option, both economic configuration and
premium configuration available.

The most difference between the economic
configuration and premium configuration is the treating equipments. This time,
for the order of CPP, it is the premium configuration, with shale shaker, desander cones with under shaker, desilter cones with under
shaker and 2 sets of decanter centrifuges. For a normally economic
configuration, there is some times a mud cleaner which is combined by a mud shale shaker, a desander and a
desilter, and in most cases there is no centrifuge. And when more treating
equipments are used, there will be larger surface for them, accordingly, the
storage capacity is enlarged.

In case of Piling work or TBM projects, the
mud system, or so called slurry plant is simpler. Normally the slurry for such
projects is not requested to be treated so fine, so there is no need for
desilter cones, only to choose enough desander cones according to the desired
treating capacity. And for Piling mud systems, there is no mixing facilities.
