Recently, a mud cleaning shale shaker, mud cleaner, and decanter centrifuge started to work at an Environmental Protection Company in U.S.A. The Environmental Protection Company in U.S.A. is to collect waste water and waste slurry from different activities, like from drilling, from construction job sites, etc… The company will treat the waste slurry, and cover the water and oil for reuse or resell. The recovered solids, cuttings and particles can be sold again to construction company for building construction, or to build roads.

Below separation equipment in included in the mud cleaning job site for the USA Environmental Protection Company.
The 1st mud cleaning equipment is a Shale Shaker. It is a 4-panel shale shaker utilizing composite material pretension shaker screen. The shale shaker model is GNZS594-HB. It is the most hot sale shale shaker model from GN Solids Control. The shale shaker is widely used in oil and gas drilling, non-oil drilling, and waste slurry separation.

The 2nd stage separation equipment is a 3-in-1 mud cleaner. The mud cleaner model is GNZJ594-2S12N. The 3-in-1 mud cleaner separator is combined of a shale shaker, above the shale shaker, there is a package of desander cone, and a package of desilter cone. The desander and desilter packing are used on top of the under flow shale shaker. The recovered slurry from desander and desilter falls down to the under flow shale shaker, and recovered by the shaker screens which with fine wire mesh. The desander separation is 10 inch which is with cut point 47 microns. The slurry recovered from desander separator will be pumped to desilter separation. The cut point of desilter separator is 27 microns, which is used to further purify the recovered slurry. After desilter separator, the weight of the slurry can be reduced, the solids content is smaller. And the solids size in the slurry is qualified for high speed decanter centrifuge separation.

A high speed big bowl decanter centrifuge GNLW553-VFD is used after mud cleaner separator to remove the ultrafine solids up to 2 microns.

TBM is short for Tunnel Boring Machine. It is also known as a “mole”. It is a construction field drilling machine used to excavate tunnels and micro-tunneling with a circular cross section through a variety of soil and rock strata. They can bore through anything from hard rock to sand. Tunnel diameters can range from 1 m to 17.6 m to date. For smaller diameter less than 1m, it is HDD and CBM drilling. The most important part of a tunnel boring machine is its cutter head. Tunnel boring machine (TBM) is widely used today due to their ability to construct tunnels at record speeds.

But as the big diameter of the tunnel, the TBM drilling will generate large quantity waste slurry (mixture of rocks, sand, soil, water and drilling mud). The waste slurry must be treated to recover and reuse water, and reduce the solids phase waste. GN Solids Control makes different sizes of TBM Slurry Separation Plant to cater for different diameter tunneling excavation activities.

GN Solids Control is specialized in full line drilling mud solids control. equipment. All the processing equipment used for TBM Slurry Separation Plant are designed and made by GN Solids Control: the coarse separation shale shaker, desander separator, desilter separator.

GN Solids Control is specialized in drilling mud solids control and waste management solutions. GN Solids Control is capable to design and make Oil Water and Solids Separation System to treat and recover various kinds of waste materials.

GN Oil Water and Solids Separation Systems are capable to treat below waste materials, but not only limited to below materials:

1. It can be used to treat oil sludge and oil, oil contaminated soil remediation, like from drilling waste pits, or from pondsand tanks
2. It can be used for water oil contaminated water-control and recovery
3. It can be used to treat waste oil and recover the oil to reuse
4. It can also be used to treat waste oil, water and solids mixture, and to recover oil, water and reduce the solids waste

Oil sludge means the waste mixture consisting of oil, water and solids. Oil water separation system is used to treat the oil sludge in order to reduce waste material, and recover oil and water for reuse. The oil sludge treatment system is also a popular solution to treat oil contaminated soil and sands.

Oil sludge is a mixture consisting of oil, water and sands. The treatment on oil sludge would recover much oil and water for reuse. Also it is an ideal solution to for the solids disposal. More oil and water recovered, more energy and resource could be saved. GN oil sludge treatment products mainly include decanter centrifuge, oil water separators and thermal desorption unit.

As many customers did not do waste management system before. To ensure GN Oil Water and Solids Separation Systems can applied for their applications, GN Solids Control specially designed a one-skid compact Oil Water and Solids Separation System for trial purpose. GN one-skid Oil Water Solids Separation System is in stock for sale. Clients can buy the small system as trial base to show to their clients their capacity to do the projects. For clients in China, they can choose to buy or rent the one-skid system.

If clients do not want to buy the one-skid compact Oil Water and Solids Separation, they can send their oil sludge or waste material to GN Solids Control. GN Solids Control can do the separation at GN factories and show clients the performance. After separation, GN Solids Control can do lab test and show the final output specs to the clients.

 

Last week, several packages of Mud Cleaning System were shipped to Chinese sea port. The mud cleaning systems will be sailed to North America to service their mud cleaning projects. The project the client will do is that, they collect various kinds of waste mud and waste water from rigs or from construction field. The client transports the waste mud and waste water by vacuum trucks, and treat them together to reduce the waste material, and recover solids and waste for reuse. It is high standard mud cleaning system to suit for North America standard.

The features of the mud cleaning system are that, its design is very compact for small foot print. Several mud separation shale shakers and dewatering centrifuge unit are equipped in the system for better separation performance.

1) First separation is by double deck coarse shale shaker to remove the big size solids from the waste mud and waste water. The top of the shale shaker is covered by metal boards to avoid mud leakage during shale shaker vibration.

2) After the double deck coarse shale shaker, next separation is taken by a single deck high G force shale shaker. The same design as the double deck shale shaker, the top of the single deck shale shaker is covered by metal boards to avoid mud leakage during shale shaker vibration.

3) A package of dewatering centrifuge unit.

As there are still many fine solids particles inside the recovered water from shale shakers, a dewater unit is used in the system for chemical dosing. It is used together with a high speed big bowl decanter centrifuge for fine solids separation.
The mud cleaning systems can recovery as more sands from the waste water. Regarding the waste mud from hydraulic excavation drilling, the recovery liquid phase is usable mud for reuse. The separated sands can be used for construction material.

This week, a full package of compact oily sludge separation system was finished from GN factory in Beijing China. The compact design fast movable oily sludge treatment system is purchased by a reputable Environmental Solutions Company from China domestic market.

There are 3-stage separation equipment included in the oily sludge treatment system.

1) There is a 2-panel small footprint shale shaker equipped in the system for coarse solids separation. The model is GNZS752. As mostly, the oily waste come out from different sources and it is mixture of different wastes. There may be big size solids in side. The big sides solids may block or even broken the centrifuges. The small size shale shaker is used to remove the possible big size solids in the sludge.

2) There are 2 centrifuges in the oily sludge treatment system. The first centrifuge we call it decanter centrifuge. The decanter centrifuge model is GNLW224, it is a 2-phase separation centrifuge. The 2-phase decanter centrifuge is help to remove solids or soil from liquid mixture. The 9 inch centrifuge is a min size decanter centrifuge. The bowl diameter is only 9 inch, but the bowl length and diameter ration is up to 4. The longer ration can help to get cleaner liquid. It is the smallest centrifuge from GN Solids Control for industry separation.

3) The second centrifuge inside the oily sludge treatment system is disc centrifuge. It is also called 3-phase centrifuge. As the name mean, the disc centrifuge can separation oil, water and soil.

Many people may wonder: in case the disc centrifuge can separate and get oil, water and soil. While you add 2-phase decanter centrifuge inside the system? Really, the 2-phase decanter centrifuge is surely not to increase the cost. The disc centrifuge can only allow liquid mixture with liquid content less than 3%. Otherwise, it will damage the centrifuge. While the decanter centrifuge can allow liquid with solids content up to 15% ~ 20%. Decanter centrifuge is a necessary as pre-separation before disc centrifuge.

GN Solids Control was firstly known as a manufacturer of drilling fluids recycling equipment that are used to remove the solids in the drilling fluids, thus the drilling fluids could be reused. In China, there are several this kinds of manufacturers who can fabricate the traditional solids control equipment like shale shaker, mud cleaner, agitator and mud tanks.
Keeping improving is one of GN’s features. In the past few years, GN has invested a lot on upgrading the traditional solids control equipment to make it easier for operation. Moreover, GN has developed many new products that keep GN a leader in the solids control industry. In the year of 2016, GN released the system for hydrocarbon recovery. It is an effective solution to treat the waste oily sludge.

Oil-sludge-Recovery-System

Oil Sludge Recovery

GN’s hydrocarbon recovery system is a three phase separation system. It includes primary coarse solids separation shaker package, fine solids separation centrifuge package and oil & water separation package.
The working principle of GN hydrocarbon recovery system is to remove the solid particles step by step from the oil sludge. The high G force drying shaker unit is equipment with hot water spraying system for better washing performance, this process will remove most of the oil content on the solids.
Decanter centrifuge is equipped with chemical dosing system for fine solids separation after demulsification process. GN’s dosing system could be used in all kinds of dewatering system for ultra fine solids separation.
The liquid discharged from the decanter centrifuge flows into the oil water separator package. Here an inclined plate clarifier is installed for further removing the remaining silt in the liquid for clarifying the oil and water mixer. Then the liquid mixer flows into the micro bubble separation for oil and water separating.
GN’s hydrocarbon recovery system makes GN a real separation solution provider other than a solids control equipment manufacturer. GN would like to communicate with all the clients on this hydrocarbon recovery system.

As per the feedback from the customers who are engaging in the pilling business, GN designed and perfect the economic mud recycling system specially for the drilling mud cleaning application in piling project. On the consideration of limited location area of the piling project job site, GN’s piling mud recycling system is designed with a very compact structure but with full functions for drilling mud recycling.
