shale shaker

Shale shaker is the filtration machinery
widely use in coal cleaning, Oil and gas drilling, HDD drilling to name a
few.  It is the first step of filtration
of solids control and it removes
the large size of cutting in the drilling fluid, often refer as drilling
mud.  The drilling fluid are internal lubrication
for keep the drill bit in controlled temperature and convey the drilling
cutting away in the bored hole.  The
drilling fluid often as mixture of different type of chemicals  both in water and oil based mixture and it is
costly expenses of drilling operation.
For as environment protection and maintains cost of the drilling
operation, the drilling fluid losses are minimized by removing them away from
the drilled cuttings before the cuttings are disposed of, this is done using a
multitude of special machines and mud tanks. Shale shakers
are components of drilling equipment that mainly use as solids filteration for
the drilling rig.  The drilling mud
return the surface front the well  it
guided flow to the shale shakers and beginning the filtrations process.  The filtered drilling mud will be flow to the
tank and storage it for other solids control machinery to process future
more.  The filtered solids away from the
mud are deposited in separate holding tank for future treatment or
disposal.  Shale shakers are valued by
most of the drilling operation to be the very important device in the mud
mixing system 
as the performance of the successive equipment  relates to the pureness of the treated
drilling fluid.

GN solids America LLC ’s linear motion shale shaker offer in
various size to fit the budget of drilling.
We have offer two, three and four panel shale shaker  with adjustable angle with one-hand operation
that ease the duty of operation.  

As we all know early 2015, GN Solids Control have made a big
deal in Africa, and have sent more than 30 centrifuges to Egypt & Algeria.
Do not worry if you do not know, pls check this link:

Also since we keep following on the
progress of equipment performance on site, now we get more and more good news,
as more centrifuges are being used. The client is quite happy with their
performance. While we also find a lot of reasons behind this, below is some
main reasons.

  1. Professional

One of our client told us that different
operator, have different feedback on exactly same product, at exactly same
site, even it is just different shift. Not only this, it make difference on the
life of the equipment. For shale
, and especially for decanter

Once visited a site, for the VFD
centrifuge operation, different parameters on the bowl speed, differential
speed, different inlet, make the result quite different.

  1. Good

Uh, this is also the essence, as even
different operation makes differences, it is based on the product, different
operation life also based on the material, the manufacturing progress, also the
test, commissioning, and so on.

  1. Proper
        Site Engineering

Most of the manuals, will require the rig,
the mud tanks, the
cabins and all the rig site on a proper prepared founded flat basement. There
is no way to have a slide one. And for decanter centrifuge it directly effected
the performance, and operation life. 

  1. Good

While all the last 3 reasons do not
happened independently, it is because of the good communication between service
company, client and equipment supplier. Proper training, good commissioning,
and always keep in touch.

GN Solids Control is China leading manufacturer
of mud solids control systems, drilling
waste management system
, as well as high quality replacement shaker screen.

GN Solids Control makes a customized mud
mixing system per client’s special requirement. The system was dispatched to
the client weeks ago. The barite mixing mud system includes below equipment:

1. Oilfield skid Mud tank. 1 ea

It is a 20ft container size mud tank with
two compartments.

Each tank compartment is equipped with a
mud gun. Totally 2 ea mud guns for the tank.
2. Mud transfer pump 1 ea. It is a 11kw small centrifugal pump. The pump can
transfer the new mixed mud to outside mud tanks or HDD
drilling rigs, or mud systems. The mud transfer pump is mounted on the slope of
the tank for compact design.

3. 1 ea mud mixing pump and 2 ea mud hoppers.

The mud mixing pump is the same type with
discharge pump. They are both centrifugal pump for easy to stock spare parts.

The mud mixing pump and the mud hoppers are
combined of a mixing unit.

Client wants the unit able to handle big bag
system, they ask for the hanging device for bags. Hoppers are both down at the
floor. So GN
Solids Control
customized a separate oil field skid to mounted all the
mixing unit and the hanging device.

The mixing pump for mud hopper is 45kw with
3000-2000 l/min. Normally, it is 1 ea mixing pump is with 1 ea mixing hopper.
Why there are 2 mud hoppers but only 1 ea mixing pump?

As the polymers are in big bags, they need
to hang the polymers bag on top of the mixing hopper when they want to mix
polymers. But they do not want to remove the polymer bag then when want to add
other chemicals to the mud mixing
. In this case, they request an extra mud hopper. When they want to
add other chemicals, they can close the polymers mixing hopper, and use the
backup hopper.

Hebei GN Solids Control Co., Ltd is the major
manufacturer of solids control equipment and leading maker of
drilling waste management equipment
in China, getting the first API
certified inside China and the first produced vertical cutting dryer with
China. Because of its leading part in solids control as well as waste
management technology, Hebei GN Solids Control Company., Ltd has exported to 60
countries and entertained the largest portion in the worldwide market, thus
achieving a new famous brand GN Solids Control. Certainly, Africa especially
Nigeria is a huge market for GN, and now around 100 models decanter centrifuge
are within Africa for solids control. Recently, our sales team have become in
Nigeria doing cost service for 3 pieces drilling waste management devices on
the drilling site.

GN main product line of drilling waste management includes excessive G shaker,
vertical cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge.
GN high G shaker can reach to utmost 8. 0 G drive because the screen bed
consists of stainless steel and the whole patio is heat treated. GN vertical
cutting dryer could reach to a 750 R force at a speed involving 1200RPM so as
to dry the actual oil based drilling cutting using a oil content at all around
5%. GN decanter centrifuge is to treat the drinks discharge from high Gary the
gadget guy shaker or the vertical cutting dryer to make more clean up fluids
return back to dynamic system. Beside singe drilling waste management
equipment, GN Solids Control also
resources complete drilling waste management system with the combination of up
and down cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge on a skid attached with little
mud tank. GN provides 2 normal model of drilling waste management system for
customers’ solution, and also customized drilling waste material management
systems are available in GN. 

Among all typically the solids control
equipment, often the shale shaker and the desander or desilter cones
usually are of less technology. The coffee quality for the shale shakers often
depends on the designed construction, the material choosing and the welding
standards, like if there are pockets in the welding seam. Actually , in the
first year connected with operation, a well made shale shaker and a poorly
produced one are nearly a similar with each other. But when they are applied
longer than one year, the issues start to show. In a word, often the shale
shakers’ technology is just not so complicated.
Comparing with all the shale shaker and mud cleaner (which could
be broken down to desander cones in addition to desilter cones), the decanter
centrifuge shows a manufacturer’s producing capability to the most. Due to the
1 . there are many rotating elements in the decanter centrifuge, the actual
producing accuracy is very important towards the rotating part. And the
providing accuracy comes from the enhanced producing machines and specialist
operators and workers.
GN Solids Control
as the solids control and waste material
management centrifuge
manufacturer, is likewise the first one in this field
in order to invite the five deal with producing machine for the centrifuge
parts manufacturing in order to assure the accuracy.

2 . often the decanter centrifuge is involving highly speed and the nearly all
welcome speed for waste materials management centrifuge is 3200RPM. Although
many manufacturers claim that their very own centrifuges could reach broadband
up to 3200RPM, but rarely could ensure the noises and vibration during top
speed. GN Solids Control’s centrifuges are under precise make sure producing
and each one ended up being strictly inspected before shipping and delivery. So
GN’s high speed centrifuge is really high speed performance one particular.
3. a suitable length as well as diameter ratio. Normally it really is 3, and 3
is a very suitable ratio for the spend management centrifuges. For the solids
control ones for the treatment of the HGS, the middle rate and 2 of span
diameter ratio is enough. And in addition how long is the cone element affect
the treating performance.
