chemical dosing unit

GN drilling mud dewatering unit and solidification unit are successfully used in Africa jobsite.


The drilling mud dewatering unit is ideal equipment to treat the water based drilling mud, it consists of VFD decanter centrifuge, chemical dosing unit, centrifuge feeding pump and fluids collection tank, all of the equipments are installed inside the container. By adding proper chemicals, most of the ultra fine solids are separated out from the fluids and collect in the tank, the solids are separated out and collected by cuttings box and screw conveyor to transfer to the big hopper of the solidification unit. The decanter centrifuge bowl is made of duplex stainless steel 2205 or 2304, the other bowl components are made of SS316L, the screw propeller is made of stainless steel material, and it is protected by tungsten carbide tiles, the open type propeller design will increase the treating efficiency.


Solidification unit is the equipments to solidify materials so that the treated materials can be moved or landfilled without leakage to meet environmental protection standard. The discharged cuttings are collected in the big collection hopper and transferred by the bottom screw conveyor, the solidification materials are storage into 2 box, one is with absorbents, the other one is with cement, each box with its own transfer conveyor, the cuttings are mixed with the absorbents and cement in the shear mixer automatically.
If the user use the cuttings solidification unit directly, the consumption of the absorber and cements will be very huge, which makes the treatment cost not competitive. The drilling mud dewatering unit will reduce the moisture of the drilling mud effectively and the cuttings solidification unit can use less volume chemicals, and the discharged fluids can be reused or sent to third party water treatment facility for further treatment.

The solids discharge port and fluids distribution port is protected by tungsten carbide alloy.


The VFD control panel drive the decanter centrifuge main motor, back drive motor and pump motor. The pump flow rate can be controlled by adjust pump motor frequency. Except for GNLW454-VFD decanter centrifuge, we also produce 18 inch bowl decanter centrifuge with shorter length as GNLW453-VFD, which can be used for drilling fluids treatment, drilling waste management, oil sludge treatment and other kind of slurry separation. The other decanter centrifuge models including 9 inch bowl centrifuge GNLW223D, GNLW224-VFD; 14 inch bowl centrifuge GNLW363-VFD, GNLW364-VFD; 22 inch bowl centrifuge GNLW553-VFD, GNLW554-VFD; 30 inch bowl centrifuge GNLW764-VFD, etc. We can also provide customized dewatering centrifuge solution for their special requirement.


1 set of chemical dosing unit, including 3 compartment tank , hopper, agitator, level meter, auger conveyor, piping system, PLC smart control, 2 units of chemical dosing pump, pressure gauge, valves, skid, etc.
1 set of screw pump as centrifuge feeding pump

Recently we shipped one unit of containerized chemical dosing system for dewatering centrifuge to our client in Africa, this is repeat order from one of our old client. The technical configuration is as below:


The three tank automatical powder polymer mixing system, including 3 compartment tank, auger conveyor, hopper, 3 sets agitator, level meter, solenoid valve, piping system, flow meter and PLC control system for automatic continuous operation, 2 sets of chemical dosing pump, 2 sets safety valve, pressure gauge and pump holder, etc.
Coagulant mixing tank including agitator, level meter, 2 sets of chemical dosing pump, safety valve, pressure gauge, pump holder, etc.
All of these above items are installed inside 20ft container, with windows, doors, lightings and air conditioner.


The dewatering unit worked with dewatering centrifuge, as one of professional decanter centrifuge manufacturer in China, GN solids control produce various size decanter centrifuge from 9 inch bowl, 14 inch bowl, 18 inch bowl, 22 inch bowl, 30 inch bowl, with different bowl length for different applications. The client already purchased the dewatering centrifuge before, when the treated fluids/ mud will be recovery for reuse, only mechanical separation will be enough, cause the decanter centrifuge cut point is 2~ 5 microns, which can separate most of the fine solids from the mud/drilling waste. When the drilling project is finished and the purpose is to get pure water and final disposal, we need to use dewatering unit ( into the container) to get the ultra fine solids to be accumulated into the particles which can be treated by decanter centrifuge. The discharged water remained solids only below 1 microns, most of the solids can be separated out, the discharged solids is dry enough to be collected by waste truck.

Recently GN solids control shipped another set of decanter centrifuge for oil sludge treatment to Brunei. The oil sludge treatment equipments in this project including:


1. Shale shaker: the function is to separate coarse solids from the oil sludge, the discharged solids can be collected by waste container, the fluids can be feed to decanter centrifuge by screw pump for further treatment. If the user do not want to use coarse solids shale shaker, they can use a filter instead, but the coarse solids content should be very small.
2. Decanter centrifuge: The decanter centrifuge is to separate fine solids from the oil sludge, the cut point is 2~5 microns, by working with chemical dosing unit, the centrifuge separation performance could be improved.
3. Chemical dosing unit: the chemical can be added in pre-mixing process, decanter centrifuge process, disc centrifuge process( for oil water separation). Proper chemicals will improve the separation result. The user can do a laboratory test to choose correct type chemical.


4. Mud tank: Including pre-mixing tank( if applicable, some clients do not have this process, but they need to ensure proper chemical jetting and mixing for the original oil sludge with proper solids content, density, viscosity), shale shaker tank, decanter centrifuge tank, buffer tank for oil and water, etc.
The client do not buy the complete oil sludge treatment system, only part of the equipments. Vacuum pump is widely used to pick up oil sludge from waste pit. It can be also used to transfer drilling cuttings, waste oil, dredging slurry, oil contaminated soil, sand, industrial waste water, etc. materials.
The vertical centrifuge is used to separate oil, water and solids, the recovery oil and water will be storaged in the buffer tank , then flow to the storage tank automatically. For more information, pls contact with GN solids control.
