Recently one set of oil sludge treatment system is ready for shipment to a oilfield environmental solutions company with customized painting color. GN solids control can design and produce standard oil sludge treatment system with different treating capacity 1m3/h, 5m3/h, 15m3/h, also we can design as per client’s concept and technics process.


A standard oil sludge treatment system is consist of the modular below:

  1. Waste transfer unit: GN use our own solids vacuum pump to transfer the oil sludge from the waste pit to pre-mixing modular. The features of vacuum pump: (1)100% air operated pump without using electricity power, need air compressor for air supply. The user need to prepare one air compressor to provide air for both vacuum pump and the positive pressurized VFD control panel of the decanter centrifuge.
    (2) can be adopted to different types of oil sludge, heavy duty for continuously working

  2. (3) automatically and manually working for option for different requirement
    (4) max discharge distance is up to 1000m, max suction distance is 50m, it can used into the crude oil tank without labors in, it is user friendly pump to transfer the oil sludge out of the crude oil tank bottom.
    2 pre-mixing modular: including a pre-mixing tank equipped with heating lines inside the tank wall, when the user supply hot steam to the heating lines, the oil sludge will be heat to 60 degree for easier separation in the next separation step. Mud agitator with control panel to agitate the oil sludge with necessary chemicals and keep it flowable. The submersible slurry pump will transfer the pre-mixing oil sludge to the next process- coarse solids separation modular.
    3 coarse solids separation modular: it might be removed depends on if there is coarse solids in the oil sludge.
  3. fine solids separation modular for solids/ liquid separation by using VFD decanter centrifuge, and working together with chemical dosing system
  4. 3 phase centrifuge modular to separate oil from water.

GNLW554EP is big bowl big volume decanter centrifuge with bowl diameter 22 inch and L/D ratio 4.2. It is the ideal decanter centrifuge for dewatering unit, it can be also used for oil sludge treatment system. The technical specification is as below:

2) The solids discharge port is made from Tungsten carbide inserts, The mud distribution port is made from Tungsten carbide inserts, the anti-abrasion will extend the life for heavy mud anti-abrasion will extend the life.
3) 3 Stage balancing process to maximize the balance of the centrifuge include 1800RPM low speed balancing and real operation high speed balancing as well as the assembly balancing.
4) The Screw is protected by interchangeable Tungsten Carbide Tiles for longer life and easy maintenance.

As one of the most professional HDD mud recycling system in China, we can design and produce mud cleaning & mixing unit with different treating capacity as 200gpm, 350gpm, 400 gpm, 500gpm, 600gpm, 800gpm, 1000gpm, 1500gpm, also we can provide customized design mud recycling system as per client’s requirement. Below is the 200gpm mud system photo we shipped recently to our HDD industry client.


The working process is as below:
The submersible slurry pump pick up the used drilling fluids from the waste pit to desilter with double deck shale shaker: the first phase is bottom deck shale shaker to separate coarse solids so that the drilling fluids can be feed to desilter cone properly. The centrifugal pump feed the clean drilling fluids to desilter cone to separate fine solids with cut point 2~5 microns, the clean drilling fluids drop down into the mud tank, the user can add powder chemicals into the venturi hopper, the mixing pump provide proper pressure to help mixing evenly. The clean fluids are ready for recycling in the mixing compartment. The mud agitator and mud gun are agitating the fluids to prevent the solids suspension in the tank bottom.


The technical configuration is as below:
1) 1 unit of GNZY753F-Y4N mud cleaner ( double deck shale shaker + desilter cone), all the shaker screen installed on the mud cleaner is composite material shaker screen, the desilter cone is 100% polyurethane material with better wear resistance material.
2) 1 unit of feeding pump
3) 1 unit of mixing pump
4) 1 unit of mixing hopper
5) 1 unit of 2 inch mud gun
6) 1 set of mud tank with tank accessories, with electrical control system and lightings
Another unit of 200gpm mud system under production for the same client, last year they purchased 3 sets of 600gpm mud system.
