Mechanical Removal of Drill Solids By GN Solids Control Equipment

Good drill solids control is very important to a drilling capacity. Generally, there are three ways to control the drill solids: dilution, gravity setting and mechanical removal. While the essay will only focus on the last one mechanical removal with an introduction of GN solids control equipment. As its name tells us, mechanical removal means to separate solid with mechanical equipment. Because of various particle sizes, there will be various phases of equipment.  The equipment can be classified into two main groups. The one is sieving device, the other is centrifugal separation device. The sieving devise could separate particles with a size of 61 microns by a 250 mesh screen. The centrifugal separation device hydrocyclones could removal particles between 20 microns to 70 microns with different size cones. The centrifugal separation device decanter centrifuge is to remove the colloidal particles up to 5 microns. 

Hebei GN Solids Control is a specialized and top manufacturer of mechanical equipment to control drill solids. With a few years’ development, the brand GN Solids Control has been achieved. GN Solids Control has its shale shaker as the screen device which is used in the primary phase equipment to separate coarse solids. GN hydrocyclone products such as desander , desilter, mud cleaner and the decanter centrifuge are machines to separation solids by centrifugal forces. GN desander with 10’’ cones could separate solids over 40 microns; GN desilter with 4’’ cones could separate solids over 20 microns; GN mud cleaner is the combination of the desander and desilter to save space. GN decanter centrifuge is used to separate ultra fines solids between 2 to 5 microns with G force produce by high rotating speed. GN Solids Control product is of high quality with cost effective price.

GN Mud Recycling System for HDD Drilling

As the top manufacturer of solids control
system & equipment
for oil and gas drilling and mud recycling
system & equipment for HDD drilling, Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd has
always being  leading the technology of
solids control in China. Being the first API certified solids control company
in China, and also certified by DNV CE, Russia TP&TC, Hebei GN Solids Control
has exported to over 60 countries around the world. Early in 2013, GN Solids
America was set up as the first and biggest China owner USA based Solids Control
Company. Unit now, Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd has developed partners in
Australia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. With a few years’
development, Hebei GN Solids Control has achieved an international brand GN
Solids Control which targets at medium and high end market customers.

Regarding to the mud recycling system for HDD drilling,
It generally includes 2 or 3 phase treating machines with mud mixing devices.
If it is with 2 phases, the first phase will be shale shaker to separate coarse
solids and then desander cones or desilter cones to separate fine solids. If
with 3 phases, the first phase will be shale shaker,
the second will be desander cones, the third will be desilter cones. Regarding
to the mud mixing device, it is mud mixing hopper with mud mixing pump. In GN,
the standard models are divided by the treating capacity from 200 gpm to
1000gpm, so we have 200GPM, 350GPM, 500GPM, and 1000GPM. Unit till now, over 20
sets operate in Australia for HDD and CBM drilling, also GN delivered one set
for Vermeer drilling rigs to India. If you have any interest to question on GN
mud recycling system, you can contact GN freely.
