shale shaker

Drilling mud service contractors around the world are all use the rectangular drilling fluid circulating tank because the installation and migration performance of the system works very well. Meanwhile, no matter how good the mud agitator perform in ideal situation, the drilling fluid tank all have corners that mud agitator’s propellers cannot reach and stir. In order to resolve this issue, install the mud gun in the top of the tank to agitate the far corner of the mud tank.

Mud Gun

GN Solids America LLC’s GNNJQ series Mud gun serve as supportive machinery to the mud agitator.  It comes with nozzle that either made fixed angle or 360 degree ration angles the positive spray-effect distance of mug gun is approx. 3 meters long.   The gun size is related with drilling fluid density, viscosity and nozzle spray speed.  Mud gun is installed the top of mud tank can be need adjusted as need at any time. A mud gun is connected to a motor-pump to stir the drilling mud and prevent the solids from sinking on the bottom of the mud tank. The mud is mixed by being suck- withdraw into a pipe by a powerful pump and inject  back into the mud tank by being pressured push through the nozzle of the mud gun. The process is similar to how jets spray in the dish washer.

 

Drilling mud is a wet mud like substance resembles like thick clay and is used to keep the drill head in controlled-temperature and carry the remnants of drilling cutting to the surface in water and oil or gas drilling operations. The mud is recycled and reused by passing it through several steps of filter and cleaning by screens of the shale shaker or mud cleaner and decanter centrifuge as it is circulated into the mud tanks then back to the drill well on the drilling rig. In order to keep the mud as liquid-liked as possible, a mud gun and mud agitator is used to keep the tank agitated and mixed.  Drilling mud is made by mixing water or oil with a clay-like substance and also other chemicals.

Mud tanks are used very often on drilling site to store the drilling fluids and to be used as the base to locate the drilling fluids recycling equipment like shale shaker and decanter centrifuge. GN solids control is a manufacturer specially for drilling fluids recycling equipment, thus the mud tank is one of GN’s main products.

So long you want to reserve the drilling fluids on site, and then you will need mud tanks. The size and structure of the mud tanks would be various according to the drilling depth and drilling type. Some drillers have their own mud mixing system with the rig, thus they can do the mud recycling job onsite, which is very convenient and cost saving. Some other drillers will collect the used drilling fluids and send to a mud plant for separation, after large size cuttings removed, the drilling fluids will be brought back to the rig for reuse. Trailer mounted tank is an ideal choice for these drillers as the drilling fluids could be collected in the tank and very fast to deliver to the mud plant. GN is not good at making such type mud tanks.

While most of GN’s mud tank are skid mounted that could be lifted and dragged on site by crane or truck. This type mud tank is better to be put on site permanently with the rig, whenever the rig would be moved; the mud tanks would be moved.

For some drilling site with limited space and the driller have the requirements for move the mud tank from one site to another frequently, GN proposed the mud tanks with hydraulic jack-up leg system. At both ends of the mud tank, the jack-up legs are installed to rise the whole tanks and even the equipment on the tank. The legs can open that the flat bed trailer can back in, and then the legs will fall down until the tank be put on the trailer smoothly. At this time, the mud tanks could be transported to other sites.

GN has made mud tank with jack-up legs for many customers coming from oil gas drilling and no dig drilling industry. This is also a very good option for fast moving mud tank design.

Russian federation is a very important market connected with GN. GN owns a superb marketing share in The ussr market. With the establishment involving GN Solids Russia, advantages and more cooperation between GN group and Russia oilfield waste management companies.

Just lately, a complete drilling waste management system has been dispatchedfor a new Russia client. The system has been put in a 40ft container for fast portable and also for keep increased temperatures the cold weather of Russian federation. It is not the first time for GN Solids Control company provided containerized system to Russian federation market. The system comes with following equipment:

Drilling mud serve as lubricant that keep the drilling bit operate smooth.  The consequence of drill bit overworked by temperature heading up will lead to hard work of engine and transmission that lead to breakdown and halt the whole operation.  It is a very costly operation halt that leads cost of extra ten thousand of dollars and more. Plus, the drilling fluid is also a very costly lubricant and to keep the drilling cost under control, solids control machinery is need for filter the debris that contain in the drilling mud for many times of cycle of use the drilling mud.  The 5 filtration machineries that will completely perform filter the solids from the drilling mud are shale shaker, vacuum degasser, Mud Gas Separator, desander, desilter and decanter centrifuge.

The filter step goes in below:

Shale shaker

The drilling mud feed enter the feeding box of shale shaker.  The mud contains various size of the solids return to the ground surface and shale shaker is filtering the biggest solid by use high G force of shaking.  The box of shale shaker contain panels of mesh screen that is different number of mesh depend on solids contents analyze by drilling mud engineer

Vacuum degasser

. The muds that return to ground surface not only contain solids but also gas from the earth core.  This gas that change density of drilling mud leads result change the viscosity of drilling mud. Vacuum degasser removes the gas in the drilling mud to keep the mud in balance and continue the future solids filter process.

Desander

The drilling fluids now that contain medium size solids enter the liquid feeding pump and enter the desander, which contain large hydrocyclone(s).  The solids diameter above 40-60um will be filtered and bottom of desander is pair with shale shaker contain finer mesh compare with first shale shaker to complete the filtering.  T

Desilter

This machinery’s function of work is just as same like desander in last step before. It contains multiple smaller hydrocyclones that can remove solids that measure diameter above 15-40um.  It is also pair with shale shaker like desander and completes this step of filtering.

Decanter Centrifuge

The drilling fluid feed through centrifugal pump that feed into decanter centrifuge that rotate in High speed of G force.  The rotating bowl will separate solids from the mud and exit in one for solids and other one is for filtered mud.  The drilling mud now will feed back to the rig for next cycle of usage.
