Centrifugal pump is a rotodynamic pump that uses a rotating impeller to increase the pressure and flow rate of a fluid. Centrifugal pumps are the most common type of pump used to move liquids through a piping system.

It is widely used in oilfield drilling mud system, as trip pump, measurement pump, charging pump, mixing pump, feeding pump. It can be used together with mixing hopper as a mixing unit, with trip tank as a trip pump/measurement pump, with mud pump as charging pump for mud pump, or as a transfer pump. It is ideal choice for drilling fluids transfer.

Mud cleaner

BY 1 September 2012 Uncategorized

Mud cleaner is a combination of desanders and/or desilters mounted over a shaker with a fine mesh screen.

The drilling mud is fed to the inlet of the desander cone, the coarse particle and fine particles are separated by different centrifugal force, the particles larger than 70 microns are separated and fine particles remained in the drilling fluids and dropped into the mud tank.

The feeding pump of desilter cone fed the mud to desilter cone, then particles larger than 20 microns are separated.

The coarse solids are dropped on the shaker screens for dry and some clean drilling fluids are recycled and solids are separated, maybe collected by screw conveyor to the drilling waste management system.

In oil & gas drilling, positive displacement pump is used to feed for decanter centrifuge, Nemo pump is one of the best feeding pump for GN decanter centrifuge.

We can provide centrifuge with various Nemo pump according to client’s requirement, for example, stainless steel 304 or SS316L material, manual speed control, variable frequency drive or fix speed pump, flow rate various from 20m3/h to 90m3/h for various model decanter centrifuge. All the pump motor is explosion proof and with a speed reducer for steadily running.

As an expensive and significant material for drilling fluids, it is necessary to recover it from the used drilling fluids. Usually we use barite recovery centrifuge to recycle barite, together with a high speed centrifuge as a barite recovery unit.

Contaminants in barite, such as cement, siderite, pyrrhotite, gypsum and anhydrite, can cause problems in certain mud systems and should be evaluated in any quality assurance program for drilling-mud additives.

For GNLW363VFD decanter centrifuge, when control the speed 1500~1800rpm, it can be used for recycling barite.

is a brand belongs to NOV(National Oilwell Varco). Magnum is an important series of Mission pump. The Magnum has an open impeller design that contains wide-tipped vanes and a more tangential circumference of the suction allowing the pump to create a smoother flow pattern when handling abrasive fluids.GN centrifugal pump is same with Mission 2500 series centrifugal pump, the spare parts can be replaceable, and installation dimension is same.
