Main Benefits of GN mud reycler:

  •     Cost effective method of re-cycling drilling mud.
  •     Reducing cost of supplying fresh mud.
  •     Cut point of 16 micron removes particles which damage centrifugal pumps, whilst leaving the useful bentonite particles in suspension for re-use.
  •     Reliable and durable design, based on engineers’ over 10 years of field experience worldwide.
  •     Avoiding cost of disposing of liquid waste.
  •     The discharge from mud cleaner is dramatically reducing disposal drilling costs.

Detailed GN HDD Mud Recycler features:


Pre-screening of the returned mud using a GNZS63-3 shale shaker

This can handle a throughput up to 528USgpm (2000 litres/min) and is designed to remove particles down to 120 microns. The "High G" linear motion shale shaker action produces a virtually dry product discharged from the top of the screen.

Secondary and thirdary cleaning of the returned mud using a ZQJ60X160 Mud cleaner

Mud Cleaner with 8”x2 Desander cones,and 4”x8 Desilter Cones. The desander pump bring fluids from shaker compartment to a two 8” desander cones,where particles are separated down to 45 Microns,and slurry with big particles drop down to the underfluids shaker of mud cleaner for drying cleaning.And mud with particle less then 45 microns goes to desander compartment. Then,the desilter pump bring fluids from desander compartment which is under mud cleaner to feed 4”x8 Desilter Cones where particles are separated down to 16 microns. And slurry with big particles drop down to the underfluids shaker of mud cleaner for drying cleaning.Cleaning fluids with particles less then 16 microns goes to the third compartment(Mixing compartment).

Mud mixing process using SLH150-35 Jet Mixing Hopper.

This mixing process provides fresh mud to be prepared very rapidly from bentonite powder. One of the three pumps is dedicated to this function allowing continuous mixing or recirculation as required.

Integral charge pump to supply clean mud back to the drilling rig.

The hopper mixing pump has dual functions, it can also act as charge pump for drilling rig mud pump.This provides a continuous supply of clean mud under pressure to the high pressure mud pump, avoiding problems of starvation and cavitation which can rapidly cause damage.

Large capacity storage facility.

A total of 4500 US gallons is provided, with a division separating the clean mud from the dirty mud. This mud tank divided into 3 compartments. Including shaker compartment, desander mud compartment, and mud mixing compartment. All three compartment can overflow to each other at the top side of the dividing tank wall,which avoid dry suction of pumps.
