decanter centrifuge

As a professional decanter centrifuge manufacturer in China, GN Solids Control can produce decanter centrifuge from 9 inch to 30 inch bowl for different applications, also we can make customized designed decanter centrifuge for client’s special requirement. Our main goal is to provide the best solution for liquid and solids separation, to get the cleaner and drier solids as much as possible.


The GNLW224EP decanter centrifuge is mainly used for waste water treatment when the user need to get very pure clean water, it works together with dewatering unit by adding chemicals to help to separate the ultra fine solids easier. The internal structure is different with the normal centrifuge used for drilling fluids or other kinds of sludge.
The max bowl speed is up to 5000rpm , with the gearbox ratio is 95:1, the max gearbox torque is 1400N.M., with a 7.5HP back drive motor and 15HP main motor, the used is very easily to adjust the differential speed by VFD control panel, the smaller of the differential speed, with the same bowl speed, the clearer of the discharged water, the drier of the discharged solids. The max G force is up to 3077G. The bowl length is 924mm, the bowl diameter is 220mm, the ratio is 4.2, it means, the material fluids can stay in the centrifuge bowl for longer time, with the adjustable pond depth, it will definitely treat the fluids much better and make the discharged water much cleaner.
Sometimes the material to be treated is high corrosion fluids, so the centrifuge fluids touch components should be with high corrosion resistance. For example, the screw is made of stainless steel 304 by heat treatment to 1000℃, the bowl material is all made of SS316L, the collection box is made of stainless steel 304.

Recently 1 set of oil sludge treatment plant is almost ready for shipment to Asia client, it is under testing in our facility before shipment. The treating capacity for oil sludge separation is 5 m3/h. We also have standard or customized designed oil sludge separation system with 1 m3/h and 15m3/h for option.


The general working process is as below:
GN sludge vacuum pump transfer the oil sludge from the waste pit/pond to the pre-mixing modular, the pre-mixing tank equipped with heating lines which can heat the oil sludge to increase the flowability of the oil sludge and increase the separation efficiency of the shale shaker, decanter centrifuge. By adding the chemicals, it will also increase the efficiency of the further process steps. 2 mud agitator and one submersible slurry pump are installed on the pre-mixing tank with electric control system.
Then the pre-treatment oil sludge is transferred to the shale shaker to separate the coarse solids by the submersible slurry pump, it also reduces the solids content of the oil sludge so that the centrifuge could separate the fine solids easily. The shaker screen is specially made with big opening to separate coarse solids to protect the decanter centrifuge.
The screw pump feed the oil sludge to the decanter centrifuge, the discharged fluids is flow to the 3 phase centrifuge to separate the oil and water. The clean water and pure oil is flow to the buffer tank , which will be pumped to the oil storage tank and water storage tank. The water can be used for the circulation again.
The 20ft container loading dewatering unit will be used when necessary with decanter centrifuge, the chemical jetting is to make the oil mixture easily separated by the decanter centrifuge.
If you need a customized solution for waste oil sludge treatment, pls contact with GN sales for more information.

GN solids control just come back from CIPPE 2019 oil exhibition in Beijing, China. We showed our advanced technology and equipments at the CIPPE oil show. Below is the photos taken in our stand.


1) Sludge Vacuum pump: it is the ideal pump to transfer the waste cuttings, waste sludge, oil sludge, drilling mud, cement, powder material and other industrial waste.
2) High G force drying shaker with 4 panel composite material shaker screens. The screen dimension 585x1165mm, we can install the shaker screen with API mesh size from API 20 to API 325 comply with API RP13C. The G force is up to 8.0G.
3) 14 inch bowl decanter centrifuge
4) 22 inch bowl decanter centrifuge for waste water treatment and waste sludge treatment and dewatering unit, the bowl diameter is 550mm, the bowl length is 2310mm, different with the normal drilling fluids treatment centrifuge, the GNLW554 series centrifuge can treat the discharged water much cleaner, it is ideal centrifuge for the project required very clear water.
5) Oil sludge separation system : The configuration is as below:
The Premixing tank, coarse solids separation shale shaker, decanter centrifuge, three phase centrifuge, chemical dosing unit, fluids buffer tank, shaker fluids collection tank, oil tank, water tank and complete skid. The mud agitator and heating lines installed on the premixing tank.
6) Vertical cuttings dryer for oil based drilling cuttings treatment.
7) Screw conveyor to transfer drilling cuttings to vertical cuttings dryer drilling waste management system
We got a lot of inquiries and positive interests for the oil sludge treatment unit. The working video for the oil sludge treatment is as below: By using proper chemicals, we can design the customized system for different requirement. If you need to know more information, pls get the brochure from our sales engineer.

Tandem shale shakers are shipped to Middle East Oilfield Service Company this week, the technical configuration is as below:
1) 2 single deck shale shaker installed on one tandem skid, with possem belly. When loading in the container, the single shale shaker will be packed by wooden pallet separately, the skid will be fixed by special made frame, the possem belly will be protected by plastic flim and disassembly to fit to the container size.


2) The 2 tandem shale shaker treating capacity is up to 1200gpm for drilling fluids of both WBM & OBM & SOBM. We can provide the shaker screens with API NO. from API 20 to API 325 as per clients’ requirement. The shaker screens are composite material frame shaker screens for longer working life and larger screen area. Each single shale shaker is equipped with 3pcs shaker screens for free.
3) The shaker deck bottom is made of stainless steel 304 for better corrosion resistance of the fluids touch part. The shaker skid is made of high grade structure steel. The screens are locking by the wedges for fast replacement of the shaker screens, the user do not waste much time to replace the shaker screens, and the screens working life is average 300 hours, it reduces the times to replace the screens.
4) The compact design is for convenient transportation from one rigsite to another.
We can also produce the triple shale shakers as per the client’s requirement, to install 3 units of linear motion shale shaker on one oilfield skid. The explosion proof vibration motor and starter could be CNEX, ATEX OR IEC EX for option as per the different requirement.
If you require shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge, vacuum degasser, pls contact with GN solids control, we can also produce customized tandem shale shaker.

Recently GN solids control shipped vertical cuttings dryer, decanter centrifuge system to Russia drilling companies, they are installed inside the 40ft container to keep them warm and avoid frozen of the drilling cuttings when working in Winter.


The client use the vertical cuttings dryer system for oil based drilling cuttings, when they use water based drilling cuttings, we will use different system design with high G drying shaker and decanter centrifuge, and we have standard design of pitless system for both water based mud and oil based mud ( also for SOBM), the client only need to buy one system and use them in different rig site.
The VFD decanter centrifuge GNLW363C-VFD is the most popular decanter centrifuge used for solids control system and drilling waste management system, oil sludge treatment system, dewatering system, solids water separation system and waste water treatment system. The VFD control panel is positive pressurized VFD control panel with PLC smart control and HMI interface, the inverter for main motor, back drive motor and feeding pump motor are made of ABB or Siemens brand or Schneider brand for global outsourcing.


The bearing is SKF brand, the screw  is made of stainless steel with heat treatment up to 1000 degree, the impeller is protected by tungsten carbide tiles for longer working life and easily replacement. The mud distribution port and solids discharge port are all protected by tungsten alloy and interchangebale. The bowl material is duplex stainless steel 2205 or 2304 by centrifugal casting, it is much better than SS304 and SS316.
