For the upcoming no dig show this September in Australia, GN solids control would like to show there one set self-contained 200 GPM drilling mud recycling system for HDD projects. As a leading manufacturer especially for drilling mud recycling equipment, besides the large footprint mud system for oil drilling, GN solids control could also provide compact structure design mud recycling system.
According to the HDD rig mud flow, GN’s economic mud systems are classified as 150/200GPM, 350GPM, 500GPM, 800GPM/1000GPM and 1500GPM. Just like the unit of 200GPM would be shown in Australia, though it is small footprint, it has all necessary functions for drilling mud recycling and mud re-configuration.
Below is the equipment list for the 200GPM unit
1. GNZY753-4N shaker and de-silter composition unit which has the functions for first stage primary solids separation and second stage for drying the solid discharged from the 4” cyclones. This unit has a top located buffer box for well back drilling mud feeding, the bottom layer screen of this unit remove the coarse solids, liquid goes through the mesh screen opening and gets down to the storage tank. Pumped by a 15hp centrifugal pump, the liquid was transferred to the de-silter cone for fine solids removing. The upper layer screen with much finer opening would block and separate out the finer solid cuttings.
2. GNSLM20A-110 Jet mud mixer is used for adding the mud chemicals and re-configuration of the drilling mud. The beneath located mud tank was divided into 2 compartments and one of them is used for mixing and storing the active drilling mud. The mixing pump adopted is same with the one for feeding to de-silter cones. That would be much easier for future maintenance and parts replacement. The mixing pump could also be used as discharging pump for transferring the active mud to the rig.
GN also has more compact unit for de-sanding, by connecting the de-sanding unit with a customized mud tank, the operator could run the mud recycling system more fit their own project condition. For more information on GN compact mud system, you may contact with GN team without hesitate.
