Mud Mixing Hopper and Vertical Cuttings Dryer for China Drilling Company
GN Solids Control just finished another batch of drilling waste management systems for one China big drilling company. With thousands of successfully projects, GN Solids Control made drilling waste management systems are always the first choice for Sinopec, CNPC, CNOOC.
GN Vertical Cuttings Dryers are mainly used to treat oil base cuttings, synthesized base cuttings. By using GN vertical cuttings dryer, oil in the solids can be minimized from 20% to less than 5%. Recycled oil can be sold as a side product or be used to produce new drilling mud.
GN vertical cuttings dyer hourly treating flow rate is around 30~50 Tons. A high rotating screen basket and flight at the same direction with different speed generates a large G force, so the large particles (max. 250 microns) can be removed from the drill cuttings. GN Vertical Cuttings Dryers can be equipped with 3 different sizes screen opening: 250 microns, 350 microns and 500 microns.
To protect GN Cuttings Dryer from blocking, GN air knife system and GN flushing nozzles will blow off the solids stuck on the screen basket and flush the accumulated around the discharge ring.
In case customer need clean drilling mud, GN Solids Control also manufactures decanter centrifuges. Solids larger than 2-5 microns can be removed by GN decanter centrifuge. GN decanter centrifuges are also largely used in high gravity and low gravity drilling mud treatment.
Together with these GN cuttings dryer, GN Solids Control also provides some sets Jet Mud Mixers. As previously mentioned, after treated by GN Cuttings Dryer and GN Decanter Centrifuge, clean drilling mud should be add bentonite or barite to get the right gravity. Jet mud mixer includes Venturi Hopper and Centrifugal Pump, drilling chemicals can be added and mixed by mud agitator later in the mud mixing tank.
As for the water based cuttings, GN Solids Control mostly uses Hi-G Shale Shaker and Decanter Centrifuge to get dry cuttings. Feel free to connect with us for any drill cuttings treating.
