Screw conveyor is a popular transfer device used at oil and gas drilling site. It can collect drill cuttings from solids control equipment, like shale shaker, mud cleaner, or desander, desilter, and it can used to transfer drill cuttings to cuttings dryers, vertical cuttings dryer, cuttings box, cuttings pits, etc…

GN Solids Control makes 5 sizes auger diameter: 10 inch, 12 inch, 14 inch, 16 inch and 18 inch. GN Solids Control makes 12ft per section as standard length. Clients can choose the auger diameter and section quantity per their needs. GN Solids Control makes various sizes screw conveyor, the transfer length is from 12ft to 48ft.

The driving unit of screw conveyor is composed of helical bevel gearbox reducer, explosion proof motor, driven section, middle section, and feed section. The gearbox reducer and motor is combined by the flange.

The Augurs are sometimes inclined at an angle, particularly the Secondary Augur. Normally, the first screw conveyor is laid at shale shaker and mud cleaner in horizontal. And then there are other augers next to the horizontal auger to transfer drill cuttings to requested position. Some clients said they faced the problem that, the oil may come from gearbox reducer to motor. Clients want isolation plate between gearboxes and Electric Motors for screw conveyors electric Motors to prevent Lubricating Oil from going into the Electric Motors.

GN Solids Control provide good quality oil seal between gearbox reducer and motor to prevent oil to enter into the motor. The screw conveyor impellers are made of wear-resistant and thicker manganese steel. According to the clients’ special requirements, the screw conveyor impellers can also be sprayed with wear-resistant coating to extent the service life of the screw conveyors.

Besides screw conveyor, GN Solids Control can also offer other transfer equipment, like centrifugal pump, slurry pump, screw pump, solids and sludge vacuum pump, etc…
