mud agitator

GN vertical cuttings dryer can be used for both water
based mud and oil based mud/ or SBM. The maintenance cost is one of the main
concern for mud service company or waste service company, they are all looking
for a cost effect dryer for the drilling
waste management
compared with US brand cuttings dryer or ship the waste to
drilling waste management companies.

The main spare parts for vertical
cuttings dryer
are as below, most of the maintenance cost is from these
spare parts:

basket, the screen basket and screen frame are separated components and they
are balanced separately. The screen basket scraper is installed to prevent the
discharged fluids from blocked on the screens, sometimes the solids content is
very high, it is not easy to get down from the screens. Based on different
drilling cuttings conditions, the replacement period will be different for the
screens, pls check with GN sales engineer team for the required quantity in one

& Cone Rotor Assembly, the 8 flites are fixed on the rotor assembly, you
need to replace it completely. The flights are used to prevent cuttings
blocking the screens and scraping the mud inside the screens.

replace time based on actual working time.

jar with scraper, the scrapers are used for solids discharge scraping.

discharge ring, it is not easy to be damaged normally, 1 set is required as
back up.

With flushing pump and air knife to provide
pressurized cleaning, that is why GN cuttings dryer can be used for both WBM
and OBM. We have 2 units of vertical cuttings dryer and other equipment include vacuum degasser,
decanter centrifuge, shale shaker,mud agitator, desander ,etc. stocked
in Houston warehouse, 6710 windfern road, Houston, TX 77040, USA. GN keeps research and develop the best technology to manufacture top
quality equipment for our clients. Cuttings
solidification unit
is the new design of GN Solids Control.Welcome to check our website to know more info from GN

mud agitators, 2 units of 2 inch mud guns, 1 fluids level meter

3 Each tank with 6×5 with 75HP centrifugal pump as
transfer pump, 75HP shear pump for cutting the mixed chemicals, 60HP mixing
pump working with venture hopper.All of the pumps are designed to multi
functions, for example:

The transfer pump can work as feeding pump of shale
and OBM processing tank; the mixing tank can work as transfer pump when
stop mixing. The shear pump can work as transfer pump when it is available or
when the transfer pump is under maintenance. The transfer pump can transfer the
clean fluids from the liquid mud plant to mud mixing tank system, also it can
transfer the mixed fluids into mud storage tanks.

4 One of the tank is as oil based mud processing tank,
with the solids control equipments as : 2-panel shale shaker GNZS852-HB, 2
units of high speed decanter centrifuge GNLW363CG, mud agitators, mud guns,
centrifuge feeding pumps.

6 Customized painting color, customized mud tank
storage capacity, customized treating capacity

If you need a proposal for liquid mud plant or mud
mixing tank system, pls contact with GN solids control in Beijing or GN solids
America in Houston, TX.

Mud agitator, mud gun, centrifugal pump, submersible
slurry pump, shear pump, mixing hopper, jet mud mixer, Jet shear mixer, is the
most common equipments used for oil & gas drilling liquid mud plant. GN
solids control has been provided such equipments to many big projects of liquid
mud plant for COSL( world’s top 10 oilfield service company) and other drilling
fluids service company in the world.

We can also provide customized design mud tanks for
liquid mud plant with flow level meters, pipelines, valves, stairs, mud gun
lines, with competitive price and compact design to meet your requirement of

We have rich experience in design different projects
liquid mud plant for both onshore and offshore, for synthetic oil based mud,
water based mud, base oil, brine and mixing tanks. Our standard container sized
square mud tanks with 400bbl volume, round cylinder type tanks are also
available for compact footprint.

We have 7 models mud agitators for option from 4HP,
7.5HP,10HP, 15HP, 20HP, 25HP, 30HP, the agitator shaft could be customized
according to your existing tank height. We have 9 models submersible slurry
for option, it could be used as mixing pump, feeding pump when
considering big volume, because it is installed vertically, it did not less the
tank volume as the horizontal installed pumps. And high solids content drilling
fluids could be transferred by such slurry pump, the benefit of low maintenance
cost is one of the reason. Also we have 4×3, 6×5, 5×4, 8×6 centrifugal pumps
with same footprint with Mission pump for option, shear pump is required when
the mixing material need to be cut. We also have 9 models jet mud mixer to meet
your customized mixing requirement, it is the combination of mixing hopper, centrifugal
and the skid.  

Welcome to contact GN solids America for a quotation.

Water based
drilling mud and oil based drilling fluids are applied together for one land
drilling rig because of the various purpose of the drilling. One package of
drilling waste management or drilling cuttings disposal unit which be used for
both water based drilling cuttings and oil based drilling cuttings are very helpful
for the drilling rigs, it can less the cost for the drilling waste management
system and reduce the space to locate the system, so that you can reduce your total
cost of drilling and ensure to comply with the requirement of environmental

week we went to the jobsite of a CNPC drilling rig to check the performance of
our drilling waste management system working with water based drilling
cuttings. The discharged mud from the decanter centrifuge is dry enough and
make the clients satisfied with the result. The system is a modular drilling
waste management system
which can be divided into several modulars.
