decanter centrifuge

This week we shipped one unit of oil based drilling waste management system for CNPC, they ever bought similar system before for their domestic and international projects.


To get ideal result of the discharge cuttings and recover oil as much as possible, the performance of vertical cuttings dryer is the major concern. GN has a lot of successful experience for drilling waste management projects, our vertical cuttings dryer has been improved to E version from the year of 2013 when we firstly produce the vertical cutting dryer as per our client’s suggestion and site feedback. From the first A version to the existing E version vertical cuttings dryer, it has been more and more user friendly and maintenance cost has been reduced a lot.


We have 900rpm, 1200rpm rotary speed for option to meet different requirement, the G force is up to 420G / 750G, and the screen basket opening can be 0.25mm, 0.35mm, 0.5mm for option for different drilling waste conditions. The screen basket and screen basket frame is separated, the operator only need to replace the single screen basket when it is wear. The independent oil lubrication system is for better lubrication of the bearing to prevent it from over heating. The automatic interlock system between oil pump motor, main motor and flush pump motor is equipped in case that the main motor starts before oil pump motor.
The decanter centrifuge is used after the vertical cuttings dryer to treat the fluids discharged from the vertical cuttings dryer, after treated by the centrifuge, the fine solids over 2 microns can be separated mostly, the fluids can be used to prepare for new drilling fluids or reuse directly. The high speed decanter centrifuge is used for low gravity solids, the max speed is up to 3900rpm.
If you need oil based cuttings treatment system, pls contact with GN freely.

This week GN solids control shipped 2 units of Large Bowl 30 inch GNLW764A Decanter Centrifuge for Mining Industry to Australia, this is the largest centrifuge model we have made right now, we have 9 inch, 14 inch, 18 inch, 22 inch and 30 inch bowl decanter centrifuge with different treating capacity, different speed, different G force for various applications.


The diameter of the centrifuge bowl is 760mm, the bowl length is 3328mm, the treating capacity is 528gpm, max bowl speed is 2650rpm, typical bowl speed is 2200rpm, max G force up to 3000G, typical G force is 2060G. The main power is 160KW, back drive motor is 90KW, the gearbox Torch is 25000.N.M.


Same with the smaller decanter centrifuge, the screw propeller protection is tungsten carbide tiles, the bowl fluids distribution port and solids discharge port is protected tungsten alloy for longer working life, the bowl material is made of duplex stainless steel 2304 for anti corrosion.


The bearing for this big bowl centrifuge is very big, need separate lubrication system for better lubrication to extend the working life of the bearings. The plate type heating exchanging system can effectively cool down the lubrication oil so that to get a better cooling performance and the temperature sensor installed on the bearing seat will send signal to the PLC to trip off the centrifuge in case of over high temperature.

GN solids control shipped several units of drilling waste cuttings screw conveyor to Africa Client, this is repeat orders for the same clients for many years. The screw conveyor is widely used for transferring and collecting the drilling waste cuttings from solids control system.


The installation of screw conveyor:
The screw conveyor might be installed on different place for different functions, for example, it can be installed along with the solids control system mud tank besides the shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge to collect the discharged drilling cuttings; it can be installed slantly under the horizontal installed screw conveyor to transfer the drilling cuttings to vertical cuttings dryer; it could be installed under the vertical cuttings dryer solids discharge port to transfer the discharged solids cake outside automatically, it can be installed under the decanter centrifuge solids discharge port to transfer out the solids automatically. It can be used in cuttings solidification unit to transfer the 3 materials and mix them together.


The screw conveyor can transfer the material with less fluids content in the cuttings, otherwise it will flow back and spill out. When the fluids content is very high, we need to use vacuum pump, slurry pump or hose pump to transfer to the drilling waste management system.

As a professional FHD decanter centrifuge manufacturer in China, GN solids control produce both FHD decanter centrifuge and VFD decanter centrifuge. Fully hydraulic drive decanter centrifuge is new developed centrifuge compared with our mutual series VFD decanter centrifuge. Features of GN brand FHD decanter centrifuge as below:


1) Compact design, all the hydraulic drive system imported from Europe, the main motor ( explosion proof, IEC or ATEX), electric control panel, centrifuge bowl assembly, bearing , skid are installed on one skid for convenient operation, convenient transportation, and save space for installation.
2) Big bowl speed adjustment arrange, Big differential speed adjustment range for better separation result, it can treat the drilling fluids drier and recycle more clean fluids, and separate more solids.
3) It is more suitable for heavy duty drilling fluids and specially in high temperature area, like India, Middle east, Brazil, Africa etc. area.


GN VFD decanter centrifuge is also very suitable for extremely high and extremely low temperature area, like Russia, and above mentioned countries. When the environmental temperature is below 40 degree, the VFD self cooling tube installed inside the VFD control panel is enough. When the temperature is lower than 55 degree, we need to use an air conditioner for cooling, so that the VFD control panel can be operated 24 hours per day continuously without over heating to break. If use normal explosion proof VFD control panel, it will break very easy in hot weather.
The positive pressurized VFD control panel with stainless steel material cover, equipped with ABB brand inverter for main motor, back drive motor, pump motor, PLC smart control, HMI interface, the operator only need to connect the cable gland with the VFD control panel.

GN Solids Control is a world-famous company specializing in manufacturing drilling mud solid control and waste management and recycling. Its product range covers shale shaker, desander, desilter, vacuum degasser, decanter centrifuge, cutting dryer, centrifugal pump, screw pump and so on. Its products are mainly used in oil and gas drilling, civil works(like piling, TBM, HDD), and mining industry.

                 

In the oil and gas drilling application, there is one important equipment in the solid control system, that is vacuum degasser. It is usually used after the shale shaker and before the mud cleaner. The main application of the degasser is to eliminate the gas immersed in the drilling mud, which will help restoring the mud weight, stabilizing the slurry viscosity, reducing the drilling cost, and preventing the well blow out accident. The vacuum degasser is mainly composed of vacuum tank installed on a skid base, vacuum pump, gas water separator, control panel, explosive proof motor. Its working principle is that: under the effect of the suction power from vacuum pump, negative pressure zone will be generated in the vacuum tank, and the drilling mud will enter the hollow shaft of the rotor through the suction tube under the effect of the atmospheric pressure. Then the mud will hit the windows of the hollow shaft and be sprayed to the wall of vacuum tank. Under the collision effect of the separation baffle, the mud will be separated into thin layers, and bubbles immersed in the mud will be broken up and comes out. The gas will be discharged by the vacuum pump and gas water separator to the safe zone, the mud will be discharged outside of the tank by impeller. In the whole process, the rotor will keep running at high speed under the power of main motor.

 

Now GN has two kinds of vacuum degasser: GNZCQ270A and GNZCQ360A, the processing capacity for these two equipment is 270m3/h and 360m3/h. Welcome to visit www.gnsolidsamerica.com
