mud tank

In drilling mud solids control system, the
mud agitator is one type of very important equipment widely used in the active mud
storage tank to make the solids suspension to avoid settlement down to the tank
bottom. As a leading manufacture for solids
control equipment
, GN solids control provide the mud agitator from 4 hp to
30 hp, the bearing used are from FAG and the oil seal is from SOG. GN’s mud
agitator is direct connection type for the motor and gear box, which makes the
structure more compact.

How to choose the right model of GN’s Mud
Agitator

By choosing the suitable model of the mud agitator, GN always
needs know how the inner dimension of the mud tank or mud pit is. Thus GN’s
engineering team would propose the right agitator shaft length and the size of
the impeller. If the mud density could be provided, that would much helpful for
GN to suggest the horse power of the motor. Generally, the heavy much may
request a high power.

How to Install the Mud Agitator

GN’s mud agitator always has the mounting
skid on which the gear box and motor are installed. This design makes the mud
agitator unit more stable if it is installed on the mud tank.  GN’s mud agitator unit will be divided into
pieced for easy delivery. Always, the gear box and motor will be as assembling
package for delivery. The shaft and impeller will be disassembled and packed in
other crates. When install the mud agitator on mud tank, the gear box and motor
assembling is lift and put on the tank top where there has already a hole for
agitator shaft insert into inside of the tank. The shaft was straightly and
vertically bolted to connect with the gear box. For the shaft longer than 6”,
the agitator unit is provided with tank bottom stabilizer to fix lower end of
the shaft to prevent vibration during working. GN can provide the agitator with
one and tow impellers as per the tank depth. The location of the impeller on
the shaft is determined as a height from the tank bottom to the impeller. GN recommends
the distance 0.75 times of the impeller diameter. For example, a 20” impeller should
be mounted 15” above the bottom. GN recommends straight impeller blades for tanks
under 5’ deep and canted blades for deeper tanks. If dual impellers are
desired, straight blade should be mounted on the bottom and the canted blade
impeller is installed at a point about two-thirds distance above the tank
bottom.

Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd is the top
manufacturer of solids control equipment and leading manufacturer of drilling
waste management equipment in China, being the first API certified in China and
the first developed vertical
cutting dryer
in China. Because of its leading role in solids control and
waste management technology, Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd has exported to
over 60 countries and occupied the largest portion in the international market,
thus achieving a famous brand GN Solids Control.
Certainly, Africa especially Nigeria is a huge market for GN, and now around
100 sets decanter centrifuge are operating in Africa for solids control.
Recently, our sales team are now in Nigeria doing commission service for 3 sets
drilling
waste management equipment
on the drilling site.

GN main product line of drilling waste
management includes high G shaker, vertical cutting dryer and decanter
centrifuge. GN high G
shaker
can reach to max 8.0 G force because the screen bed is made of
stainless steel and the whole deck is heat treated. GN vertical cutting dryer
can reach to a 750 G force at a speed of 1200RPM so as to dry the oil based
drilling cutting with a oil content at around 5%. GN decanter
centrifuge
is to treat the liquids discharge from high G shaker or the
vertical cutting dryer to make more clean fluids return back to active system. Beside
singe drilling waste management equipment, GN Solids Control also supplies
complete drilling waste management system with the combination of vertical
cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge on a skid mounted with little mud tank. GN provides 2
standard model of drilling waste management system for customers’ option, and
also customized drilling waste management systems are available in GN.
