Recently one batch of drilling fluids shale shakers are ready for shipment, they are for drilling rig solids control system to separate drilling cuttings from drilling fluids. The waste drilling cuttings will be collected by screw conveyor, and transfer to drilling cuttings treatment system.
The features of GN shale shakers:


1) Shaker deck bottom made of stainless steel 304, which is fluids touch part
2) Patent C tube rubber sealing for better sealing performance and prevent the cuttings from leakage
3) 2 ea of Itavibras / Italy Oil/ US Martin brand vibrator to provide high G force up to 7.5G, whichever is suitable.
4) High grade instructure steel material mounting skid of the shale shaker to provide high strength support
5) When tandem shale shaker and triple shale shaker is required, we will make a complete skid and possum belly for the 2 units and 3 units of shale shakers


6) Our normal shale shaker is linear motion shale shaker, when 2 vibration mode is required, we will make special dual motion shale shaker to meet the client’s requirement
7) Composite material frame shaker screens installed on the shale shaker with longer working life and better separation performance.
8) If required by the client, we can provide ViST unit to increase the separation performance of the drilling fluids, the vacuum hopper is installed under the last piece screen, the vacuum unit provide vacuum so that the drilling fluids can last longer time on the screens, so the discharged cuttings is much drier, and the fluids is much clean.
Except for drilling fluids shale shaker, we also have mud cleaner, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge, mud agitator, centrifugal pump, etc. solids control equiupments and vertical cuttings dryer, high G drying shaker, screw conveyor, vacuum pump, etc. drilling waste management equipments.

Recently GN solids control shipped one set of drilling cuttings solidification unit to our client in Africa. The cuttings solidification unit is widely used for water based cutings final disposal. The technical specification of GN drilling cutting solidification unit:


1) GN stand drilling cutting solidification unit is mounted on 2 skid, one is solidification mixing unit, one is cuttings storage hopper skid. During transportation, the solidification unit is loaded into 40ft container, and the 2 separate skid for convenient operation.
2) The cuttings storage hopper skid including waste collection hopper and accessories and screw conveyor , the user can damp the cuttings waste into the collection hopper, the screw conveyor transfer the waste to solidification mixing unit continuously.
3) The solidification unit including lime storage box, absorber storage box, high shear mixer, all of these components are installed on one skid. The screw conveyor dropped the cuttings into the vessel, at the same time, the lime and absorber are transferred by separate augers, all of these materials are mixed into the vessel, and transferred by the inner screw to solids discharged port. If chemical is necessary, it can be add through the liquid inlet .
Before feeding the GN solidification unit, to save the operation and material cost, the drilling cutting should be as dry as possible. The client can use water based drilling waste management system before feeding to cuttings solidification unit.


Normally we use high G drying shaker and high speed decanter centrifuge package. The screw conveyor collect the water based drilling cuttings and transferred to high G drying shaker, the coarse solids are separated out, the fluids dropped into the buffer tank, the screw pump transfer the liquid to VFD decanter centrifuge, then the fine solids are separated out, the fluids are flow to solids control system for reuse, the cuttings are collected by trash box and feed to solidification unit.

Recently GN solids control shipped one set of oil and water separation package for China Oilfield Service company. The technical configuration is as below:


1) 2 phase decanter centrifuge to separate fine solids from fluids
2) Screw pump to feed the crude oil / oil sludge to decanter centrifuge
3) 3 phase centrifuge ( disc centrifuge) to separator oil from water, by adding proper chemicals, the recovered oil can be with BS & W below 3%, which can be accepted by most users.
4) Diaphragm pump to feed the clean fluids discharged from decanter centrifuge to disc centrifuge
5) Buffer storage tank for oil and water with oil pump and water pump, 2 liquid level meters are installed on each tank, when the oil or water level reached the setting level, the oil pump and water pump will pump the oil and water to the big storage tank
6) Package skid, all the above mentioned items sit on one skid for convenient transportation and operation

This is one modular of the oil sludge separation system, the complete oil sludge treatment system including waste pick up pump ( normally we used vacuum pump), Pre-mixing tank modular, screen modular to separate coarse solids, chemical dosing system, and the last modular is 3 phase separation package.
The pre-mixing tank is the most important part, when the solids content is higher than 30%, the waste oil sludge should be diluted by proper fluids and low the solids content below 30%, if necessary, the demulsifier should be added by this process for easier separation for the next phase separation. The mud agitator is agitating the oil sludge with chemical mixing evenly and the submersible slurry pump will transfer the fluids to screen modular to separate the coarse solids.
For more information, pls contact with GN solids control.

Recently GN Solids Control shipped one set of solids control system to Papua New Guinea by air. Because the project is very urgently, the client can not bear the long sea freight time, so they decide to ship it by air by a big cargo airplane. After arrived at Papua New Guinea, the user need to ship the solids control system by Helicopter because of the rough road condition there.


The technical configuration of the heli lifted solids control system is as below:
(1)1 set of mud gas separator with skid, during transportation, it is laying down for easy transportation.
(2)2 sets of linear motion shale shaker with 3 panel screens, all the shaker screens installed on the shale shaker and mud cleaner are composite material frame shaker screens for longer working life and better separation performance.


(3)1 sets of mud cleaner( desander cone, desilter cone and bottom shale shaker 3 in 1), the treating capacity is 1000gpm, the desander cone qty is 2 ea, the desilter cone qty is 12 ea. 2 sets of centrifugal pump as feeding pump to feed drilling fluids for the desander and desilter. The centrifugal pump is interchangeable with world famous brand centrifugal pump, and the wear parts- pump case and impeller is made of hard ductile iron material for longer working life.


(4)1 set of trip tank with mud agitator and mud gun
(5)1 set of mixing tank with mixing hopper, mud agitator, mud gun ,the mud agitator is vertical installed mud agitator for space saving purpose and with higher efficiency.
(6)1 set of treatment tank equipped with shale shaker, mud clener
All the equipments are installed into the heli lifting frame for safety shipment and safety lifting by the helicopter.
If you need high standard solids control system, pls contact with GN solids control.

Another set of workover rig mud tank system is shipped to Indonesia last week, it is consist of 2 mud tanks with a total tank volume 400bbl, including:
1) Shaker tank: tank capacity 200bbl, with handrails, stairs, inner stairs, walkway, control panel, lightings, mud agitator, mud gun, shale shaker

3) IEC explosion proof electric control system for all the motors, lighting, cables, gland
4) Composite material frame shaker screens to be installed on the linear motion shale shaker, with treating capacity 528gpm, we can produce screen mesh from API 20 to API 325 as per client’s requirement, the 3 layers stainless steel wire mesh for reliable working performance.


5) Linear motion shale shaker equipped with 3 panel screens, the vibration motor is IEC EX certified Italy Oil brand vibrator, 2 ea of 1.72KW vibrator to provide G force up to 7.5G. The starter is IEC explosion proof. The shaker deck is made of stainless steel for better corrosion resistance. The shaker screens are fixed and locked by composite material wedges for convenient replacement shaker screens.
