Base oil tanks for the 3500bbl Mud Liquid Plant

Customer request 3 base oil tank (diesel tank) next to the 3500bbl Mud Liquid Plant. The based oil tank equipped with shear pump in a separated skid. For cleaning diesel before enter into base oil tank, there are oil/water filter before oil enter into oil pump. In case the oil quality is not good enough, the filter will cleaning the oil first and then transfer to the base oil tank.

For easy maintenance, GN Solids America disc valve in side tank suction port. And outside tank is butterfly valves.

Almost all the large capacity drilling project need one set drilling fluids recycling system. While the drilling waste management system could also be classified as high configuration system and economic configuration model. The high configuration mud system is always be equipped for the oil drilling rig. This type mud system includes all the solids control equipment like shaker screen, de-sander, de-silter , vacuum degasser and decanter centrifuge. For some deep oil well drilling, the mud system may be consisting of many mud tanks for active mud storage. The economic configuration mud system is always used for some deep oil well drilling, work over rig project, horizontal directional drilling and piling project.

Work over rig mud system is little simpler in the solids control equipment configuration as the mud system sometimes only contain the shale shaker for one stage solids control. The workover rig no need the drilling mud to be treated very clean. It also has a mud mixing system which could be used to re-configurate the drilling mud.

According to the flow rate of the directional drilling rig, the HDD mud system is often divided into different model. Such as GN’s model 150GPM, 350GPM, 500GPM, 800GPM, 1000GPM and 1500GPM. The HDD contractor would always not use the decanter centrifuge in the system as the drilling fluid is not very high request on the cleanness. But some customers has high request, they will also put the decanter centrifuge in the mud system.

The piling system is the simplest de-sanding unit; it only has one tank and one unit high capacity de-sander. GN solids control could provide the piling system of D50 and D100 as per the treating capacity. Always the piling system is no mixing system, the solids is removed out by the vibration screen, and the fluids get down to the tank and the pumped back to the rig.

Recently, GN has manufactured a dewatering system for our client.GN dewatering system is capable of reducing the drilling fluids and discharge costs, and providing a good condition of drilling fluids all the time.

GN Equipment for Dewatering System.

1. Shale Shaker is first stage solids control units with 100% removal large solids.GN shale shaker is a high “G” force, high volume linear motion shakers. This unit is designed to achieve optimal working performance under the most challenging applications t.  GN offers two, three and four pretensioned screen panels can be mounted or replaced individual of each other. Operator many take less than 10 minutes and requires only a light hammer. Another advantage is the lower operational and maintenance costs. Regular maintenance is necessary including simple inspect screen panels, deck rubbers, and vibrator motor bolts.

2. Mud cleaner removes the solids ranging from 75 to 20 microns. We believe that our mud cleaner offers top performance including low maintenance, lubrications-free and rugged polyurethane material hydrocyclones.  It is Coupled with robust pretensioned shaker screen.


3. Decanter Centrifuge plays an important role in the whole system. GN decanter centrifuge is capable of removing hard “floc” after the chemical treatment of drilling fluids. Larger capacity and effectively separating colloidal particle is an obvious advantage of decanter centrifuge.


Benefits of GN Dewatering System

1. In the limited discharge area or zero discharge area, GN dewater system plays a significant role in the closed-loop system

2. Minimal cut point content under normal solids control equipment operation parameters

3. Small footprint is for installation and transportion

4. Maximum recycle of the drilling fluids to reduce the drilling fluids cost.

5. The mixing machine is controlled by the sophisticated computerized programme to reduce the chemical cost and wastage

It has been an acknowledged truth that China is a manufacture world of China. If you know this, I want to tell you another generally accepted truth that Anping county is the manufacture world of screens. Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd is a top manufacture of drilling waste management and equipment which certainly include the first stage treatment equipment shale shaker. For a shale shaker, its treating effect large depends on screens installed on it. The quality of screens will decides to some degree of the shale shaker’s performance. GN Solids Control owns a shaker screen manufacturing factory in Asian largest wire mesh center city. GN Solids Control company has adopted most advanced technology to manufacture all kinds of shaker screens and can supply many a kinds of replaceable shaker screens for many brand shale shakers.

Last Tuesday, GN has delivered three pieces sample shaker screens to an Indian customer. This customer has showed great interest in GN shake screens. This time, GN carefully and seriously manufactured three pieces sample screens for this customer. Once this customer is satisfied with the sample, the will lay a big order for shale shaker screens.

One important criterion is screen mesh. Thread is woven into cloth, similarly, metal wire can also be woven to create a metal cloth. Mesh means the number of holes in one inch’s length. And, the larger the number is, the smaller solids can be removed out. For many years, screen mesh has evolve in competitive screen manufacturing, contributing to the usage of thin but strong cloth to improve screen’s service life and conductance.

Specialized in manufacturing solids control equipment and shaker screen, Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd is a perfect choice for you.
