mud gun

Mud gun is an essential part for drilling mud tanks, it usually works
together with mud agitator/ mud mixer. The 3 main functions including :

(1)  
Mixing, prevent the solids from precipitate, the
necessary working pressure is provided by the mixing pump or mud pump,
sometimes it works together with mud agitator, for example, for mud mixing
tank, mud storage tank; sometimes it works separately when there is no enough
place to install a mud agitator.

(2)  
Transferring, the mud gun line is designed inside
the mud tanks and connect with each tank to transfer the drilling fluids, for
example, it can work as a balance pipe between 2 tanks to keep the mud level
balanced.

(3)  
Cleaning: If connected with clear water pump, it
can be used as mud tank cleaning line after drilling is finished, so you do not
need to buy a separate jet water unit, with the GN unique mud tank bottom
design( with a 5 degree slant), the deposits solids on the tank bottom will be
washed to the side with sand washing port, and the operator can use special
tools to take the sand away.

GN solids control mud gun is with 3 nozzles and can work with 6.4Mpa for
oil & gas drilling , and 1.0 Mpa for HDD & CBM drilling. We have 2
types mud gun, one type is rotatable mud gun which can rotate with 360°, the other type is fixed. Also
we provide 2 sizes, 2 inch diameter and 3 inch diameter. The mud gun length is
customized with different size mud tanks, we will ask the client to provide
necessary information before order.

Normally GN mud gun is made of carbon steel, for special requirement of
brine water or corrosive mud, we can provide stainless steel material for
option. Welcome to inquiry GN solids America for more info.

Recently we
shipped a complete set of customized mud mixing tank system to South America,
as a small part of a liquid mud plant.

The main configuration of the mud mixing tank system
is as below:

1 4 sets of 40 feet container size mud tanks with
necessary handrails, stairs, walkways, connection pipelines, valves, flexible
connections, flanges, man hole, clean gate, etc. 3 of them are mud mixing
tanks, 1 of them is mud processing tank.

2 Each tank with 2 units of GNJBQ15DD ( double blades)
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
shaker
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.

5 Operation table for each mud mixing tanks, the
chemicals will be put on the operation table by forklift for convenient
operation.

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
volume.

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
pumps
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
pump
and the skid.
