Mud Cleaning System and Equipment

mud system is primarily used for oil & gas drilling fluids circulation, horizontal directional drilling ( HDD ) fluids recycling, underground drilling mud recycling, geothermal drilling, dredged fluids or slurry separation, mining, coal exploration drilling, water well drilling and more. Solid phase in solids control, can be divided into two categories according to its functions. Useful solid phase, such as bentonite, chemical agent, etc. Another kind is the harmful solid phase, such as drilling cuttings, sand, etc. The so-called drilling mud solids control program is to get rid of the harmful solid phase, keep the useful solid phase, in order to meet the performance of the drilling mud. Generally, we call it solids control.

Drilling mud recycling technique for the is consisted of mud tank, shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, and decanter centrifuge, feeding pumps, etc. Shale shaker is employed to separate the big solids with diameter above 75μm, and 45~74μm for desander, and 15~44μm for desilter, decanter centrifuge is utilised in separating suspension of solid phase with particle diameter≥2μm for drilling mud and fluids handling. In addition to shakers and hydrocyclones, the application of a high-speed centrifuge has significantly contributed to the ability of a drilling operation to reduce the amount of mud to be built and diesel/barite additions to maintain optimum low and high gravity solids proportions. Sometimes desander & desilter are combined as highly efficient mud cleaner. When air enters the drilling fluids, vacuum degasser is applied to separate the air. If no air is found in the mud, the degasser will work as a big agitator. All these equipment are mounted on the top of the mud tank. After separating the solids, the clean mud will be pumped into the borehole again.

Drilling Mud and Mobile Solids Control System
With no doubt, GN is a pioneer and professional in this industry and field of China. Except the excellent solids control equipment, such shale shaker, decanter centrifuge, etc., GN can also provide the whole solids control technique of higher quality than the other companies. GN Solids Control Program can be applied to almost all kinds of regions such as polar areas and tropical regions.

Cuttings Dryer to Kuwait for Oil Recovery Project

Focusing on big rated wonderful and fantastic service, GN gear is now recognized by plenty of national providers globe wide, one particular instance is, CNPC in China, PDVSA in Venezuela, Pertamina in India. Not also extended ago, we provide to Kuwait GN Vertical Cuttings Dryer and linked gear as the initially stage of an Oil Recovery Method for KOC (Kuwait Oil Organization) project.

The equipments are listed as beneath:

1 x GNCD930 Vertical Cuttings Dryer, dry the oil on drilled cuttings to drastically considerably less than 5% (oil base mud).

4 x GNZS703D double deck Shale Shaker

V-hopper with bottom screw conveyor assembled.

Pumps including shear pump, centrifugal pump, submersible slurry pump.

Steam lines for heating the material are added towards the each gear as pre the client’s requirement.

GN Solids Control is specialised in Drilling Mud System, recycling and disposal, in case you have any request, ordinarily generally don’t hesitate to create contact with us.

Standard GN OBM Waste Management Systems for South Asia

Not too long ago, GN production department is busy with drilling waste management systems, mainly because very same orders come from distinctive regions of planet, 1 after yet another. The 3 OBM waste management systems are respectively for Asia, West Africa and Middle East.
This can be a typical method with GNCD930C vertical cutting dryer, a hopper shape tank for getting the liquid in the vertical cutting dryer, along with a GNLW363BG-VFD for additional remedy of drilling liquid. Solids components discharged by this method is usually buried or produced into mud plate prior to burying.
When designing this system, in addition to the basic functions, GN engineer team take into consideration plenty of components, even which includes compact specifics. As under:
1. In GNCD930 vertical cutting dryer, air flushing system adopted for avoiding screen blocking circumstances.
2. GNLW363BG decanter centrifuge is mounted on a telescopic skid, this skid can offer you 3 optional heights for the centrifuge, less difficult for operator to lead the treated clean liquid back to a reserving tank.
3. Liquid outlet of decanter centrifuge is developed with 2 branches, equipped with valve. A single is always to the side, to be able to transfer liquid into reserving tank. The other is vertical, employed for discharge liquid straight, as well as aids flushing.
four. GNLW363BG-VFD decanter centrifuge is international high typical decanter centrifuge, with optimistic pressurized VFD handle and higher regular material for longer service life and superior efficiency.
5. Tank involving vertical cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge is shaped as a hopper, in this condition, solids particles remaining in liquid is adapt to settle down to the smaller sized bottom. On bottom there is a gate for discharge them on occasions and easy to flush.
Some customers who use WBM only can replace the vertical cutting dryer into a GNZS594HGE high G shale shaker and cost will likely be substantially reduce.

Mud tank inquiry from Jordan drilling company

We got mud tank inquiry from Jordan drilling company, after some times communication, the end user evaluate our drawing and they hope all necessary equipment is included.

They also have further requirement as below

  1. The funnels of the mud hoppers must be installed on ground level and not on the top of the tank
  2. The mixing hoppers discharge line must have outlet of the tank so that can be connected to our available tank. Advise the connection size of the outlet so that we can order connections between your tank and our tank.
  3. Re the tank equipped with hoppers: It must be installed also cleanout gates on the other (opposite) side of the tank.
  4. The following items from our attached drawings are missing in your drawings:
    1. Re Reserve Tank No.1:

1. Item 4 – High pressure mud gun 2"and line

2. Item 9 – Rig mud pump bottom suction line

3. Item 10 –  Rig mud pump suction bottom valve

4. Item 12 – Fresh water line

  1. Re Reserve Tank No.2:

1. Item 4 – High pressure mud gun 2"and line

2. Item 7 – Rig mud pump bottom suction line

3. Item 8 – Rig mud pump suction bottom valve

4. Item 10 – Fresh water line

  1. Advice the outlet connection size of the ditch so that we can order connections between your tank and our tank.
  2. We remember you that the top of the tanks must be covered with serrated bar grating, equipped with Hand rails of 1½” pipe in walk areas on top of the tank and stairs with handrails.

After the customer got our positive response on the mud tank technical specifications, they issue their order and buy the 2 sets mud tanks. Meanwhile, they also try to buy one sets of 1500hp rig mud system from us. We are following the projects now.
GN Mixing Tank and Its Function inside a Comprehensive Mud Solids Manage Method:

GN Mobile Waste Management System Flexible for Applications

Today, drilling waste management equipments for additional treating the solids cuttings from solids handle technique is extra and much more critical to the drilling liquid service corporations and drilling businesses. Such companies are working with more effective equipments so that you can better treating the solids cuttings and save extra valuable liquid for future drilling.
And much more and more clients require a mobile, flexible solution for waste management, GN developed such a system. This method becomes well known ever considering that it shown to customers. This GN Waste management system is suitable for WBM, OBM and SBM.
This program is combined by following equipments:
2 sets of screw conveyor (augers) GNSC14A-24
1 vertical cutting dryer GNCD930C
1 high-G drying shaker GNZS594HGE-LD
1 set decanter centrifuge, higher speededGNLW363BG-VFD
two sets of Netzsch screw pumps
1 mud tank for reserving liquid to become treated for decanter centrifuge
1 trailer for carrying this comprehensive method, of great high quality but affordable cost.

In case of treating water primarily based mud, the operator can stop the vertical cutting dryer and get started the high G drying shaker only. Some customers only use high-G drying shale shaker within this technique if they only treat WBM as a way to save cost.
