Mud Recycling System for HDD Machines and Boring Equipments

GN solids control,
with sales
office and warehouse GN Solids America in Houston
, is a China based
manufacturer for mud
recycling system/ mud cleaning system
/ desander unit/
solids removal unit/ dewatering unit for HDD Machines and Boring Equipments. We
provide not only standard design mud recycling system, also customized design
of mud cleaning and mixing

For the standard
design of HDD & boring mud recycling system, we provide economic solution
and premier solution for your different budget.

GN mud recycling
system applications:

(1)   Bored piles machine

(2)   Tunnel boring machine

(3)   HDD machine

(4)   Diamond core drilling,
water welling drilling

(5)   Coalbed methane

(6)   Geothermal Drilling

(7)   Slurry separation

We have 3 standard
models of economic mud recycling system for option, GNMS-200D( 200gpm treating
capacity),, GNMS-500D( 500gpm treating capacity),, GNMS-1000D( 1000gpm treating
capacity),, this is a compact design which is utilized in the projects which
has limit place to install the HDD machine and mud system, also it is a good
choice if you have limit budget for the project.

The applications of
premier mud recycling system is same. It is a self-container mud recycling
system with recycling, mixing, storage function together. We have 6 standard
models for your option: GNMS-200G( 200gpm treating capacity), GNMS-500B,
GNMS-500G( 500gpm treating capacity), GNMS-500GL, GNMS-1000G( 1000gpm treating
capacity), GNMS-1000GL.

GN self-container mud
recycling system is an economic solution in the long run, because it can be
applied for many different projects, if there is no space limit, it could be
your best option. We do not mean that the premier mud recycling system must be
expensive, compared with the technical specifications, it is reasonable. We use
3 phase cleaning( shaker, desander,
rather than the traditional 2-phase cleaning(
shaker with desilter cone), it can separate most of the coarse solids from the
drilling mud so you can re-use the water.

3500bbl Mud Liquid Plant for off-shore drilling

Features of the 3500bbl Mud Liquid Plant for off-shore drilling

It is a 7-tank mud system complete with mixing, cleaning and storage function. And complete with lighting system and electrical control system.

Equipment included in the 3500bbl Mud Liquid Plant

1) Skid Mounted 3 runner oilfield skid mud tanks with V crimp, quantity 7 each 2) Mud tank with dimension 13500x3000x2350mm. Unit capacity 500bbl. Tank bottom steel plate thickness is 8mm, tank wall steel plate thickness is 6mm. Tank top covered with 5mm Checker plate. Tank bottom 5 degree incline torwards the drain gate for selfcleaning.

3) 3 double-layer agitators and 3 mud guns for each tank

4) Mud Mix unit (100 HP / Duplex type) with two pump motor units. On a separate skid. 3 Tons Electric hoist for lifting chemicals.

5) Steel frame rain shade Roof Cover for Jet Mixer Skid

6) Light system for the while system

7) Electric Control System for the while system

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.

Mud System Compact Design for Easy Operation and Cost Saving

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.
