Hi-G Shaker and Cuttings Dryer Successfully Using for International Oilfield Company

One batch of drilling waste treatment equipments are successfully used for international oilfield service company. The equipments list including:

  1. GNZS594F-SGZF High G drying shaker
  2. GNCD930F-VFD vertical cuttings dryer
  3. GNSC12B-24 & GNSC14B-48 screw conveyor
  4. Support skid for vertical cuttings dryer and high G drying shaker
  5. GNLW363C-VFD decanter centrifuge
    For a standard drilling waste treatment system, normally we will use decanter centrifuge and vertical cuttings dryer, sometimes when solids content of the fine solids smaller than 0.35mm is very high, the client will use the high G drying shaker to reduce the solids content firstly before feeding to decanter centrifuge, otherwise the high solids content will be easily block the centrifuge bowl. For vertical cuttings dryer screen basket screen opening, we have 0.5mm, 0.35mm and 0.25mm for option, we suggest the user to select 0.35mm or 0.5mm screen opening, for smallest screen opening, the screen basket will be blocked very frequently and the treatment result can not meet the expected result. For the treated fluids will flow to high G drying shaker buffer box, and flow to shaker screens evenly, by using very fine mesh shaker screen, such as API 270, API 325, they can reduce the solids content before feeding it to the decanter centrifuge, which will increase the separation efficiency of the decanter centrifuge.
    The vertical cuttings dryer is the ideal equipment to treat the oil based drilling cuttings, we recommend the user to treat the oil based drilling cuttings from primary shakers only, the drilling waste from desander, desilter and decanter centrifuge will be easily block the screen basket and the treatment result will be influenced. They can be collected and sent to oil sludge treatment unit, to get the solids, water and recovery oil.
    If you need a solution for drilling cuttings treatment and oil sludge treatment, pls contact with GN solids control.

Recently GN solids control finished production of one set of GNTBM-360 Slurry Separation Plant for pipe jacking engineering company. The main equipments including shale shaker, desander, desilter, bottom shaker, desander feeding pump, desilter feeding pump, mud tank, etc.
The technical configuration is as below:

  1. The system treating capacity is 360m3/h.
  2. The separation cut point is 20 microns, if the client need 2 microns cut point, decanter centrifuge can be applied.
  3. The TBM slurry separation plant transportation dimension for land freight is 6058 x 2438x2891mm, total power consumption is 162KW. When the slurry separation plant is under working condition, the dimension is 6058x3004x4922mm.
  4. The coarse solids separation shaker model is GNZKR-1230, the screen area is 3.6m2;
  5. the mud cleaner model is GNZY705E-Y3S16N, the bottom shale shaker is a double deck shale shaker, with desander cone 10 inch 3ea, desilter cone 4 inch 16ea, the total treating capacity is 360m3/h. the screen area is 4m3. The vibration strength is max 7.5G ( adjustable), the desander feeding pump is GNSB8X6-14/12J, the desilter feeding pump is GNSB8X6-14/12J.
    The compact design with big treating capacity can meet the client’s requirement, the dimension is same as 20ft container size, which can be transported by container trailer.
    The working process is that the TBM slurry is feed to the coarse solids separation shaker for pre-treatment, the big solids, stone, sand will be separated out, the fluids drop down to the fluids catching tank. The desander feeding pump feed the slurry from catching tank to desander cone, the fluids flow to intermediate tank and the desilter feeding pump feed the fluids to desilter cone, the clean fluids flows to storage tank. The solids dropped down on the bottom screen for drying and separated out.
    Except for 360m3/h slurry separation plant, we also have 240m3/h and 500m3/h for option.

3 phase decanter centrifuge for oil sludge separation

3 phase decanter centrifuge is the common used equipment for oil sludge separation unit and oily water separation project, based on client’s different requirement for the treatment result, we will select proper equipments, 3 phase decanter centrifuge or 2 phase decanter centrifuge plus 3 phase disc centrifuge. They have their own advantages and disadvantages.

3 phase decanter centrifuge is a solids, liquid, liquid 3 phase separation machine, the 2 phase liquids should have specifically different density, and the solids phase should be specifically heaviest phase, which can be easily separated. The separation principal is sedimentation, when the oil sludge is feed to the centrifuge inlet pipe and enter into high speed bowl, the material rotates synchronously with the bowl. When gravity is different, the generated centrifugal force is also different, the solid phase ( the heaviest phase) with largest gravity, then water phase with 2nd largest gravity , the oil phase with the lightest phase and smallest gravity. The solids phase is in the outtest layer of the screw, the oil inside, the centrifugal force became less from outside to inside. The solids are pushed by the screw conveyor, the water which is heavier is discharged from the nozzle in the upper position of the big end, the oil which is the lightest phase will be discharged from the bottom nozzle of the bid end. The solids, oil, water discharged from 3 phase centrifuge is not with high quality, if your requirement is very concerned about the oil quality for recovery , water quality to be sent to waste water treatment facility, solids quality for disposal, it can not meet your requirement.


Another solution is to use 2 phase decanter centrifuge plus 3 phase disc centrifuge, it separated the working process as solids liquid separation firstly, then liquid liquid separation, with proper chemicals adding and heating, the treatment result can reach expected target.

Waste Sludge Dewatering Equipment shipped to Environmental Company

This week GN solids control shipped one batch of waste sludge dewatering equipments to Environmental company, including: Dewatering Centrifuge, Screw Press Dewatering Machine, and Chemical Dosing Unit.

The dewatering centrifuge package including one unit of dewatering centrifuge, 1 set of mud tank to collect the clean fluids, one unit of submersible slurry pump as centrifuge feeding pump, 1 unit of mud agitator for agitating the slurry. The chemical doing unit will feed the prepared chemicals to the dewatering centrifuge and well mixed in the centrifuge feed tube, then the mixture chemicals and slurry will be enter into the dewatering centrifuge, under the working of G force, the light fluids are discharged from fluids discharge port, the solids are discharged from solids discharge port, both of the fluids distribution port and solids discharge port are protected by tungsten carbide alloy, and it is interchangeable once damaged.

The Screw Press Dewatering Machine is a sludge extrusion dewatering equipment. The working principal is by the strong squeezing force generated by the change of screw diameter and screw pitch, and the tiny gap between the floating ring and the fixed ring, to realize solid-liquid separation. It can be widely used for dewatering the industrial waste sludge, oil waste sludge and other sewage treatment projects. It can work continuously and automatically, it will not block frequently. It is energy saving and environmental friendly solution, compact design with small footprint, only need a small space to locate it. Just compared with dewatering centrifuge, its treating capacity is not so high. Especially for oil sludge treatment, decanter centrifuge treatment result is the best. But screw press is with lower energy consumption and a little lower cost. Compared with screw press and decanter centrifuge, filter press investment is very high, and efficiency is lower, discharged solids is drier.
