offshore mud system

GN Solids Control has recently dispatched four sets of High G drying shaker units, specially designed for deployment on offshore drilling platforms for China offshore drilling company. These units are specifically engineered to handle the treatment of cuttings from water-based mud, showcasing GN Solids Control’s commitment to providing efficient and tailored solutions for the unique challenges of offshore drilling operations.

Each of these comprehensive packages is thoughtfully curated and includes essential components such as a high G drying shaker, a mud tank, a centrifugal pump, a mud agitator, and an intelligent control system. The casing of the intelligent control system is noteworthy for being constructed from stainless steel, a material chosen for its superior anti-corrosion properties. This is particularly crucial when considering the corrosive nature of marine environments, ensuring the longevity and reliability of the equipment even in challenging offshore conditions.

One of the standout features of these units is the centralized control system, allowing for seamless and efficient operation. This design not only enhances the overall control and monitoring capabilities but also contributes to a more compact and space-efficient setup. In the confined and dynamic environment of offshore platforms, such design considerations become pivotal for optimizing the use of available space and ensuring the ease of operations.

GN Solids Control doesn’t stop at High G drying shaker units; they also offer screen vacuum shale shaker units tailored specifically for offshore applications. These units are meticulously engineered to meet the stringent demands of offshore drilling operations, providing effective separation of solids from drilling fluids.

With a keen focus on innovation, quality, and meeting industry-specific challenges, GN Solids Control continues to be a reliable partner for offshore drilling operations. Their cutting-edge solutions not only contribute to operational efficiency but also adhere to environmental standards, ensuring a sustainable and responsible approach to offshore drilling practices.

When referring to offshore drilling fluids management, usually remind us STEP OFFSHORE, which belongs to AKER SOLUTION, a very famous company. But they are not manufacturer.

In 2010, STEP Offshore appointed exclusive distributor for Derrick. STEP Offshore given exclusive right to sell premium solids control equipment and screens in Europe. Logistics infrastructure in place to satisfy the most demanding customer requirements. Pyramid Plus screen technology gives up to 200 percent more screen area.

For the offshore drilling fluids management, Derrick supply these main products: Dual Pool 600 shale shaker, Dual Pool 600 mud


cleaner, FLC 513, FLC 514, FLC 503, FLC 504, DE-CP Premium 250 Centrifugal Pumps, DE-7200 VFD Centrifuge, DE-1000 Series Centrifuges, similar as onshore drilling while suit for offshore environment.

BEM shale shaker

GN Solids Control can supply similar products for offshore application. Choose the proper motors, marine explosion proof, concern more on the painting, also the control panels, and so on.

BEM703 shale shaker, which is balanced elliptical motion, is designed by Mr. Zhang in Southwest Petroleum University  in 2009, and trialed in 2011 in one Chinese oilfield. Then we take it to the CIPPE 2011, this means it has been lead into the international market.

And it is very exciting that it is the highlight of all solids control equipment in the exhibition, we signed 2 contracts for similar system just in the booth.

For treating the oil drilling fluids, the balanced elliptical motion shaker is 20%-30% bigger than linear motion shaker, discharging speed is 10%-20% faster;For resisting the “screen stuck”, “screen paste” “horseshoe effect” ,the balanced elliptical motion shale shaker is much more effective.
