The traditional drilling mud solids control equipment includes shale shaker, mud cleaner, desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge, etc…Each of them has a certain cut point (separation point). They are selected and used based on their cut point.

Solids control shale shaker is the basic and pre-separation equipment of drilling mud system. Its cut point is up to the screen opening utilizing on the unit. In order to make sure the accurate and correct separation result, API RP13 complied screens are requested to used in the drilling mud shale shaker. It means all API RP13C screens with the same API size from various screens manufacturers are all interchangeable. They can all reach the same cut point.

But for various screen suppliers, their screen quality and the mud flow rate varies based on the materials and the designations. There are API screens with sizes from PI 10 to API 325, the cut points is from 2mm to 40 microns. The finer the API size, the less the mud flow rate.

Screen shale shaker is the D100 separator. It means 100% particles above the cut point will be removed.

10 inch hydro cyclones are the post popular used in oil and gas drilling for desander. It is also called as desander cone. Its separation point is 47 microns. In some cases, 12 inch hydro cyclones are used for bigger mud handling capacity.

4 inch hydro cyclones are the post popular used in oil and gas drilling for desilter. It is also called as desilter cone. Its separation point is 25 microns. In some cases, 5 inch hydro cyclones are used for bigger mud handling capacity. The smaller size 2inch desilter cone were used in some special drilling waste management situations.

Hydro cyclones are not D100 separator. Hence the underflow shale shaker is suggested to used under the hydro cyclones to further clean the solids discharge from them.

Decanter centrifuge is a high standard and precision separator. Its cut point can up to 2 ~ 5 microns. It is used to reduce the mud weight.

GN Solids Control Sludge Vacuum Pump is widely used for oil and gas drilling. There are many functions of the pump whiled used for different applications.

The GN Solids Control sludge vacuum pump can be used to carry drilling waste and drilling cuttings from drilling mud system, and transfer to trucks or other separation device. As the vacuum pump is high pressure for suction and discharge, it is normally used together with drilling waste distributor stations for buffering and for discharge to next step process stage.

In the field of mud cleaning, as the tank size is huge in some cases, or the slurry is hazardous, which is not suits for human operation by entering the internal tank, GN Solids Control vacuum pump can be used to suck the hazardous waste from the huge tank, and transfer to the tank cleaning slurry waste treatment system. GN Solids Control can also offer the dewatering centrifuge packages, as well as the waste slurry separation system from tank cleaning. GN Solids Control offers different proposal and solutions to treat oily sludge and non-oily sludge.

Besides transfer, the GN Solids Control vacuum pump can also be used an a big industry cleaner to clean the spilled oil and mud on tank surface. Operators can choose auto-control and manual control on the vacuum pump control panel. Many oil company requests at least a vacuum cleaner for each rig mud system to clean the spilled mud and oil on tank surface.

While choose the Auto-control function, the vacuum pump will be suck material at the setup time, while the suck time is over, the vacuum device will then discharge at the setup time. The Auto-control is mainly used while it is used as a transfer device.

The manual control function is mainly used for vacuum cleaner. When the pump is power on, it can suck wastes, when the tank is full, as when operators want to discharge the waste, he presses the discharge bottom to empty the vacuum pump tank.
