solids control

Shale shaker, mud cleaner and desander, desilter are the most common solids control equipment for different drilling rigs, like oil and gas drilling, Horizontal directional drilling, coal bed methane (CBM drilling), water well drilling, piling, micro tunneling, and other trenchless and underground activities.
GN Solids Control as one of China leading manufacturing for solids control mud recycling system and equipment, they exported some shale shaker and mud cleaner for Hong Kong China for a trenchless project.
The client bought equipment from GN:
1) Solids Control shale shaker, GNZS703E.
It is a linear motion shale shaker with 3-panel shaker deck. It utilize pretention shaker screen and mounted by wedge for fast screen changing. GN offers steel frame screen and composite materials for its screens. Customer can choose suitable type per need. All GN shaker deck is made from stainless stain for better anti-corrosion and long lifetime. 

2) Mud cleaner GNZJ703E-3S16N
The mud cleaner is the combination of a linear motion shale shaker GNZS703E, 3 × 10 inch desander cone and 16 × 4 inch desilter cones. The cone assembly is mounted on the shaker deck. It is user friendly design. If you do not want to use mud cleaner, you just remove the cone assembly parts and use it as a shale shaker.
3) Mud cleaner ZNZJ703E-16N.
It is the combination of shale shaker and desilter cone. The under flow shale shaker is GNZS703E. Normally clients choose underflow shale shaker the same with solids control shale shaker. For this mud cleaner, it is only 16 ea 4 inch desilter cone, no desander cone applied.

Other solids control equipment can be offered by GN:
Complete mud recycling systems, mud tanks, decanter centrifuge, mud agitator, mud gun, poor boy degasser, mud gas separator, jet mud mixer.
Solids Control equipment is only a small part of GN Solids Control company. The main field of GN group is drilling waste management. f you want more information, or you have any questions on drilling waste management, welcome you contact GN group at any time.

GN Solids Control is China leading manufacturer on mud solids control and drilling waste management field. As the 1rst API certified solids control company in China, and the first China solids control manufacturer who has warehouse and branch company in Houston, USA, GN can offer you professional solutions on mud treatment for oil and gas drilling.
IN year 2015, GN Solids Control promoted its advance drilling waste management equipment: drilling cuttings solidification unit.
GNGH-15 drill cuttings solidifications unit can dry 15 m3 (max.) cuttings per hour. The oil field drill cuttings solidifications unit is mainly combined of mud mixing tank, cement storage tank, absorber storage tank, the conveyer systems, and electrical control system for the whole system. All items mounted on the tank skid for easy movement. GN offers turnkey solution for customers.
Applications of the drilling cuttings solidifications unit:

1) It can be used to dry the drilling cuttings from solids control system, like from shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, and decanter centrifuge
2) More widely, it is used to dry the drilling cuttings from drilling waste management system. The cuttings from solids control system, after further treated by high G drying shaker, vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuge, it is more suitable for drill cuttings solidification unit to treat.
Other Solids Control equipment offered by GN:
1) Shale shaker: linear motion, it is the first step solids control equipment in drilling rig. Nearly all rigs equipped with shale shaker.
2) Desander, it is the second step solids control equipment
3) Desilter, it is the third step solids control equipment.
4) Mud cleaner: it is the combination of shale shaker, desander and desilter
5) Middle speed and high speed Decanter centrifuge
6) Other solids control equipment: centrifugal pump, centrifuge feed pump, mud agitator, mud gun, poor boy degasser, vacuum degasser,
Other Drilling waste management equipment
1) High speed drilling waste decanter centrifuge and big bowl centrifuge
2) High G force 4-panel drying shaker
3) Vertical cuttings dryer
4) Screw conveyer
5) Drill cuttings solidification unit
6) Thermal Desorption unit

GN Solids
Control is China leading manufacturer for solids control mud system. Recently,
we have one set 750hp rig mud system for sale. The mud system is deigned for
Libya clients last year. But the project hold on because of some cash issues.
The clients who in need of 750hp rig mud system can send email to us, and this
mud system is on sale now with much better price.

Dual mud tank
system, mud tank
dimension: 13500 X 2800 X 2150. The total capacity can reach 70m3, about 400bbl
mud system. The two mud tank, one is mud
recycling tank
; the other one is mud storage tank. The mainly mud system
configuration including:

1) one poor boy
degasser to treat the gas invade mud. When the drilling mud result gas invade,
the proportion of its weight and viscosity have a greater deviation not to meet
the requirements of drilling. The serious situation is that would cause Chung
well, and even blowout accident occurred, if not to treat it timely.

2) one shale
, GNZS594 with 4 panel shaker screen, working as 1st stage mud
treatment equipment. The 4 panel shaker deck is longer than 3 panel shaker
deck, performance is better.

3) one vacuum
degaser, GNZCQ270, special-purpose device and a new type one for the treatment
of gas in the drilling fluids. It can get rid of various gas of invasive
drilling quickly. Vacuum degasser is very important for returning mud gravity,
stabilizing mud viscosity and reducing drilling cost.

4) One desander ( simple
type): GNWS-2S, with 2ea 10’’ desander cones can have 1000gpm treating capacity
to remove the solids around 40-70microns.

5) One desilter (simple type):
GNWS-12N, with 12ea 4’’ desilter cones can have 1000gpm treating capacity to
remove fine solids around 25-40 microns.

Above is mainly
solids remove equipment, some auxiliary equipment also included, like
centrifuge pump for feeding & transferring; mud agitator for mixing &
mud agitator
, mud hoppers etc.

As one
of the top decanter centrifuges manufacturer in China, GN solids control
decanter centrifuge has been widely used for oil , gas and mining industry. The
main applications as as below:

traditional application- solids control system, for barite recovery and fine
solids separation

VFD centrifuge can be used for barite recovery, high gravity mud and low
gravity mud by changing different speed. But for some clients the VFD
centrifuge with higher cost, we will recommend rate speed centrifuge with 2 or
3 sets of different speed pulleys, they need to change the pulley when changing
the speed.

GN Solids America, it is the branch company of GN Solids Control Company Limited. It is located in Houston Texas. With its own office building and warehouse.

GN Solids Control and GN Solids America took part in 2015 OTC oil show with great success. The head company GN Solids Control takes its latest design drilling waste management equipment (high speed decanter centrifuge, vertical cuttings dryer) for the show. And GN Solids America show the mud cleaner separator machine for the OTC oil show. Mud cleaner is a 3-in-1 machine, with the function of desander, desilter, and a under flow shale shaker.

GN solids control mud cleaner for oil and gas drilling showing on OTC
1) Mud cleaner model: GNZJ594E-2S12N
It is the combination of under flow shale shaker GNZS594E, a 2-cone desander, and 12-cone desilter.
2) Capacity of the mud cleaner: 240m3/h (max.)
The capacity of mud cleaner depends on the desander cone and desilter cone capacity. The smaller one is the treating capacity of the whole treating capacity.
Desander cone and desilter cone is on D100 separation machine. There will be some amount of useful mud discharged together with dirty mud. So the function of underflow shale shaker is to further treat and recovery mud and dry the solids discharge.
Some jobsite may use desander or desilter with not under flow shale shaker to save cost. But the performance is surely not as good as the combined one.
3) Feeding pipe size of the mud cleaner is 6’’ and the output size if 8’’. GNSB8*6 centrifugal pump is mostly used to feeding for the desander and desilter.
4) Shaker screen of the GNZJ594E-2S12N mud cleaner: the under flow shale shaker is a 4-panel shaker with long shaker deck. It can make the solids more dryer. The shaker screen is pretention type, and mounted with wedge for fast screen changing.
5) GN patent design for Synchronous adjusting of the deck angle. When the operator adjust shaker angle at any side, both sides will be up or down with exactly the same angle. It saves time of jobsite people and easy for operation.
