solids control

GN Solids Control can design and manufacture different size of liquid mud plant according to customer demand. GN can design and build several types of tank, such as vertical tanks, rectangular tank, round tanks, etc. The Liquid mud plant is used to manipulate (mix, dilute, treat, adjust) various drilling fluids to be used in wells supported by this Supply Base. Normally it expanded drilling waste management (DWM) processing, typically in the form of centrifuges used to treat used mud that has been back-loaded to the supply base. OSV (offshore supply vessels) are used to transport any drilling or completion fluids to and from the LMP that cannot be mixed up or treated on location. The LMP is in place for one primary purpose is to Keeping good mud properties in the well-bore.

Tank Types for Liquid Mud Plant

Oil Based Mud Tank

Water-based Mud Tank

Base Oil Tank

Water Tank

Brine tank (Fiber Glass Tank or Coating protection)

Bulk Tank

Mud Mixing Tank

Equipment used for Liquid Mud Plant

Normally, a decanter centrifuge made by GN Solids Control will be used for solids control of the drilling mud. Sometimes, clients will require a shale shaker for coarse solids removal. The mud agitators are mounted on the mud storage or mixing tanks for agitation of the mud to prevent the silting of the solids in the fluids. Sometimes, GN mud guns will be needed for agitation especially for the Conner of the mud tank. The mud mixing and chemical adding are done by Mud mixing hoppers and centrifugal pumps. GN Solids Control manufactures the decanter centrifuge, shale shaker, mud agitator, mud gun, centrifugal pump and mud mixing hoppers for the liquid mud plant.

GN Solids Control is one of the largest solids control and waste management companies specializing in the production of related equipment such as shale shakers, desanders, desilters, mud cleaners, vacuum degassers, mud gas separators, sedimentation centrifuges Machine, agitator, centrifugal pump, cutting dryer, screw pump, shear pump, mud gun, etc. After 10 years of development, GN has promoted its products to more than 60 countries and now has two overseas subsidiaries in the US and Russia.

The oil sludge treatment system recently produced by GN Soilds Control is used in Kazakhstan for the convenience of the overall transportation of the oily sludge treatment system. The on-site installation and the formal operation have been highly recognized by the customers in Kazakhstan, and have been debugged by the after-sales service personnel of GN Soilds Control. In the case of feedback on the use of field equipment, the effect of the oily sludge treatment system has exceeded the original design expectations. Kazakhstan customers are highly appreciative.

The high oil content of the on-site waste of Kazakhstan customers cannot be directly used or effluxed, and it is piled up to be air-dried or buried underground. It not only pollutes the environment, but also causes a lot of waste of resources. The local environmental protection department lists oily sludge as dangerous solid waste. The company’s oily sludge treatment system not only improves the environment, but also recovers crude oil and achieves considerable economic benefits. The oily sludge treatment system produced by GN Soilds Control mainly consists of sludge vacuum pump, tank body, dosing system, heating mixing tank, buffer oil water separation tank, vibrating screen, horizontal screw centrifuge, three-phase disc machine, screw pump, PE. The tank, the receiving box and the like, the oil sludge first enters the heating and stirring tank and simultaneously adds the flocculating agent, and is separated by the vibrating and sieving, the horizontal screw centrifuge is solid-liquid separation, and the three-phase disc machine separates the oil, water and mud. The solid phase oil content after treatment is controlled at ≤ 2% to meet customer’s processing requirements.

The low-temperature solid-state control equipment recently produced by GN Solids Control is sold to Uzbekistan for use in the severe cold area. The low-temperature solid-state control equipment used in the Uzbekistan site is required to meet the ambient temperature of -50C degrees Celsius. After our technicians, business managers and customers The communication provider finally ordered our low temperature solid control equipment.

The low-temperature solid-control equipment produced by Guanneng can produce a variety of models according to the actual application volume of the on-site customers. The low-temperature solid-control equipment produced by our company has high-efficiency separation ability on site, and the solid control equipment produced by GN Solids Control is widely used. In oil drilling, coalbed methane development, horizontal wells, non-excavation directional drilling rigs, pile drivers, shield mud recovery and other fields.

The low temperature solid control equipment ordered by the customer mainly includes drilling fluid centrifuge, drilling fluid vibrating screen, drilling fluid slurry cleaner and drilling fluid vacuum deaerator. The drilling fluid centrifuge is designed for the characteristics of petroleum drilling fluid. Special equipment for solid-liquid separation can complete various processes such as feeding, centrifugal sedimentation and unloading at full speed. The drilling fluid vibrating screen box is made of stainless steel. The motor has high vibration intensity, large screening area, adjustable screen box angle, enhanced shock absorption measures and low working noise. It is the most important first-level solid-control separation equipment in drilling operations. The drilling fluid mud cleaner cyclone adopts pure polyurethane material, the sieve box is made of stainless steel, and the motor and electric control are all internationally famous explosion-proof brands. The drilling fluid vacuum degasser is a solid control device for treating gas infiltrating drilling fluids, which can quickly remove various gases intruding into the drilling fluid, and plays an important role in restoring the specific gravity of the mud and stabilizing the performance of the mud.

GN Solids America LLC manufacture oil drilling equipment including shale shakers and its wear and tear  parts. Shale shakers is the solids-filter machinery that remove drill cuttings from the drilling mud that is used for digging holes into the earth. Filtering the solids in drilling mud is an important component of the operation cost of drilling, so research and development into shaker functioning is ongoing.

GN Solids America’s shale shaker design – Shale shakers consist of large, flat wire mesh screens for  filtering or sieves of various mesh sizes that shake or vibrate the drill cuttings.  The commonly filter across and off of the shale shaker screens as the drilling fluid (mud) flows through them and back into the drilling fluid system. This separates the solid drill cuttings from the fluid so that it can be re-circulated back down the well bore for keep the drill bit functioning.


Poor boy degasser’s design purpose is for treating big volume of dissolved gas in the drilling mud. Such gas under the pressure will be expand if not take care it properly.  The poor boy degasser in traditional throttle pipe and between the vibrating screen and it has a direct discharge of gas pipeline. The installation of poor boy degasser is  typically installed in the rear of the throttle manifold.

The poor boy degasser needs meet the following operation needs:

  • Through field operation feedback, the capacity of gas process on poor boy degasser need to be five time as much as the design cycle.
  • The inner diameter of the pipeline need to be same or larger than the coke manifold in the inlet pipeline of the poor boy degasser.
  • The drilling fluid is directly discharged into the inlet manifold of the vibrating screen or the reserve tank of the drilling fluid.
  • The diameter of the exhaust should be 8 inches or greater.
  • The valve should not be installed on the gas discharge line.

Poor boy degasser parameters:

  • The gas from the separator must be firmly fixed.
  • During the cold weather the poor boy degasser installed on the bottom of the cleaning valve, in order to prevent liquid from blocking the liquid gas separator, the valve should be opened.
  • It need to be clean and maintain the poor boy degasser according to the specification or service provided by the manufacture
