Welcome come to know more info from our sales team.

GN is a top
manufacture of solids control equipment in the world. It could manufacture
various solids control equipment and packaged mud system.

In this article,
we will give a brief introduction about the packaged mud system.

Usually, 1
complete set of mud system should include the following equipment, such as the
Shale Shaker
, Desilter, Desander, Centrifuge, Centrifuge Pumps, Agitators, Mud
Guns, Mud tanks and some other necessary components.

For the mud
systems that manufactured by GN, they are widely not only used in the oil &
gas drilling industry, but HDD industry, coal bed methane drilling, water well
drilling, geothermal well drilling, mining, piling works, tunnel construction,
dredging construction. Sometimes they are also used for treating the industrial
wastewater and executing the solid-liquid separation.

As the mud
system are widely used in different industries and different industries have
different requirements, so there are always little or big differences between
different requirement that used in different industries, such as,

1.Usually the
packaged mud system used in the oil & gas drilling industry is very big,
there are many different solids control equipment installed like shale shakers,
mud cleaners, vacuum degasser, centrifugal pumps, jet mud mixer, agitators, mud
guns. There are many mud tanks for different functions, some tanks will be used
as storage tanks, some tanks will be used as mixing tanks, some tanks will
service for the solids control equipment.

2. The packaged
mud system is small, such as used in the HDD industry and CBM drilling
industry. The system structure will be compact and easily moved and the tank
quantity could be limited and tank volume could be small.

3. GN could
manufacture the customized mud system according to the customer requirements,
such as the specific onsite situation, the condition of drilling fluids, the
desired treatment effect of drilling fluids.

Finally, if you
want to learn more about GN Solids Control, welcome to visit GN’s website

In this article, we will
mainly talk about GN shale shakers with different treatment capacities,
different types of Shaker Screen for customer option. 

1. GN Shale Shaker with different Treatment

As decided by different drilling rigs and
well depths, the needed drilling fluid volumes are also different. GN’s Shale
Shakers have different drilling fluid treatment capacities for customer option. 

2. GN Shale Shaker with different types of
Shaker Screen.

As the necessary part of 1 complete shale
shaker, GN has many different types of shaker screen with high quality and competitive
price for customer option. Besides, the shaker screens that GN manufactures
could not only be used on GN’s shaker, but also could substitute most of the
screens made by other solids control companies on the global market.

If customer has the requirements for
substituting the other company’s shaker screen by using GN’s, it is just needed
to provide the specific dimensions, the mesh number, the original shape, and
the free samples could be sent for trying. The details are as below,

2.1.GN Steel Frame Screen

The steel frame screens are most applied to
the shale shaker. The screen frame adopts high-strength square steel tube welded
to multi-ribbed construction. They are sturdy and reliable. The screens are
constructed with 2 or 3 stainless steel layers bonded to a steel support plank. 

2.2. GN Pyramid Screen

This type of screen is the replacement
product of flat screen. The effective area is 125% to 150% of flat screens.
Without changing the construction of shakers, the using of the screens can
improve the quality of drilling fluid and increases the production. Screen has typical mesh cloth that appears
regular waves. And it can be mounted on suitable shaker by hookstrip or
wedge-shape fastening device. As compared to flat screens, this screen has
higher treatment capacity by reason of more useful area. 

2.3.GN Composite Screen

With the
development of drilling technology, and the idea promotion of environmental
protection and cost saving, GN Shale Shaker has been more and more widely used in
drilling industry for cleaning the drilling fluid. GN Shale Shaker widely
services the global customers like from Oil & Gas Industry, HDD & CBM
industry, with the customers of HALLIBURTON, BAKE HUGES, SCOMI TOOLS and so on. 

Drilling fluid,
known as the mud, has several different functions to drill an oil or gas well,
including subsurface pressure control and cuttings removal, which also reduces
the friction between drill bit and the wellbore. 

When the Drilling rig is
working, the drilling cuttings that chipped away by the bit goes into the
drilling fluid and its technical parameters like density, viscosity and special
gravity will be changed and could not meet the drilling’s requirements,
seriously the Well Kick or Well Blowout could be happened. 

The drilling fluid circulated
the cuttings to the surface, as the sizes of cuttings in the drilling fluid are
different, in order to promote the treatment efficiency and effect, usually the
cuttings needs to be separated out by adopting multiple-stage separation. The Shale
Shaker is matched together with the Desander, Desilter and sometimes the Decanter
centrifuge is also equipped, to treat the drilling fluid and recover its
physical properties. 

Normally the Shale Shaker is
used as the 1st-stage drilling fluid purification equipment. It is mainly used
for screening out the big size cuttings like over 100μm. The working principle is as below, 

fluid pump circulates the fluid from the fluid pit to the Shale Shaker;

are vibration motors installed on the Shale Shaker. The motors produce shaking
force and the fluid moves on the Shaker Screen.

big size cuttings could not go through the Shaker Screen and are discharged.
The treated drilling fluid will go to the next-stage for continuous cleaning. 

Based on the different requirements of customers
from different industry, GN could provide the standard shale shakers and
customized ones for customer option. Such as different treatment capacities,
different types of shaker screen, different combinations of Shale Shaker with
Desander or Desilter, Desander and Desilter together.

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

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

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
