Recently GNSP-40B and GNSP-10B sludge vacuum pumps are ready for shipment for drilling waste cleaning to Africa. The application of vacuum pump used at drilling rig site including: drilling hazardous waste cleaning, waste pit cleaning, mud tank cleaning, drilling rig platform cleaning, drilling cuttings transfer, etc.
When the vacuum pump is used as drilling cuttings transfer, it can be used as screw conveyor, which will collect the drilling cuttings from primary solids control equipments, such as shale shaker, desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge, etc. The usage of vacuum pump and screw conveyor is according to space limitation, vacuum pump needs less space for installation, the max suction distance is 50m, the max discharge distance is up to 1000m, it is 100% air operation pump without electricity power supply, just it needs air compressor for air supply. The screw conveyor needs large area for installation, and the transfer distance is very limited, and the power consumption is also high. In actual situation, the user can use both vacuum pump and screw conveyor together, the drilling waste is collected in a collection hopper by vacuum pump and transferred by screw conveyor to drilling cuttings treatment system vertical cuttings dryer and decanter centrifuge for drilling cuttings treatment and cleaning.
When the vacuum pump is used for drilling waste and waste pit cleaning, there are automatic mode and manual mode for option, and connect suction pipe, discharge pipe and air hose with air compressor, if automatic mode is selected, set the suction and discharge time after running the vacuum pump for several loops. The maximum solids size for GNSP40B vacuum pump is up to 75mm, waste solids content is up to 80%.We also provide different type suction pipe and discharge pipe to transfer different waste material with different length, each section length is 10m with joint.
