Recently one unit of mud cleaning system for offshore platform is ready for shipment. Different with normal design drilling mud cleaning system for onshore drilling, the mud cleaning system for offshore is with different features, like compact design, convenient transportation, offshore lifting frame, explosion proof standard to meet offshore drilling requirement, painting and coating to meet offshore requirement for better corrosion resistance.


The technical configuration is as below:
1) One unit of linear motion shale shaker, the discharged solids are collected by buffer box and collected by screw conveyor, which can transfer the drilling waste to cuttings box. The shale shaker are installed on the mud tank with offshore standard lifting pad, it needs to be lifted to the offshore platform frequently, the safety should be assured. All the mud tank pipelines are layout outside for convenient maintenance and operation. All the valves, fittings, flanges are all oil resistance material for longer working life. The shale shaker equipped with 2 ea Italy Oil brand vibration motor, the shaker screens are produced comply with API RP13C standard, with 3 layers stainless steel material wire mesh, composite material frame for longer working life. The shaker screens fixing method is by wedges.


2) One unit of mud cleaner (desander, desilter and shale shaker 3 in 1), the desander cone and desilter cone are all made of 100% polyurethane material for longer working life. The bottom shale shaker is same model with the shale shaker, the shaker screens are with same dimension. The shaker deck bottom are made of stainless steel material for better corrosion resistance.
3) Centrifugal pump, the pump casing and impeller such wear parts are made of ductile hard alloy for longer working life, FAG brand bearing for reliable operation. We can get offshore lifting pad certificate as per client’s requirement.

Recently 2 sets of offshore drilling mud cleaner are ready for shipment, the difference of the offshore used mud cleaner with onshore drilling mud cleaner is the lifting point and explosion proof vibration and starter. The lifting pad system conforms to DNV 2.7-1 or CCS lifting certificate to meet for offshore drilling. We can make customized design equipments according to different requirements.


The mud cleaner equipped with 3 ea of 10 inch desander cone and 16 ea of 4 inch desilter cone, all of the hydrocyclones are made of 100% composite material for longer working life, especially when the solids content is very high, we will use metal cover outside the polyurethane material cone in case that the hydrocyclone will be easily deformed and damaged. 2 units of 1.72KW vibration motor from Italy Oli or US Martin brand are used to drive the bottom drying shaker. The lifting frame with offshore approved lifting pad is designed for convenient lifting the equipment from land to offshore rig. We can provide different explosion proof standard motor and starter based on different requirement.


The mud cleaner with a 4 panel screen bottom shale shaker to recovery more useful drilling fluids. All of the screens are composite material frame shaker screen with stainless steel 316 wire mesh, we use 3 layers of wire mesh for all the API mesh over API60, which has been widely used in different countries for oil drilling rig for treatment of different types drilling fluids, the working life is from 300 to 700 hours.
Except for mud cleaner, GN solids control also produce other solids control equipments such as shale shaker (both linear motion shale shaker and dual motion shale shaker), desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge, centrifugal pump, mud gas separator, vacuum degasser, mud agitator, mud gun and drilling waste management equipments.

This week GN solids control finished production of vacuum degasser and mud cleaner for clients in Middle East.


We have 3 types of degasser for oil & gas drilling industry, vacuum degasser, centrifugal degasser, mud gas separator. The mud gas separator is installed before the solids control system trip tank, to separate the hazardous gas from the drilling fluids and prevent it from kick off. The vacuum degasser and centrifugal degasser is used after shale shaker and behind desander, desilter or mud cleaner, the function is to separate the gas from the gas cut mud and protect the next process equipments like centrifugal pump, and keep the balance of the drilling fluids, their function is same, just vacuum pump is installed horizontally on the tank top, the centrifugal degasser is vertically installed in the mud tank , it can save space on the mud tank.


The mud cleaner produced by GN solids control is a combination of desander cone, desilter cone and bottom shale shaker. With different qty of hydrocylones, there are different treating capacity for option. The desander cone, desilter cone material are 100% polyurethane which is wear resistance material. The bottom shale shaker equipped with 4 panel shaker screens, with composite material frame for longer working life. Centrifugal pump #1feed the mud from degasser tank to desander cone, the clean fluids dropped into the desander compartment, the solids are separated out and drop down to bottom shale shaker, the useful fluids will be collected and the drier solids are separated out from shaker screens. Centrifugal pump #2 feed the mud from desander compartment to desilter cone, the clean fluids dropped into desilter compartment, which is clean fluids can be reused to prepare for new fluids or can be reused directly.
For more information about vacuum degasser and mud cleaner, pls contact with GN solids control.

As one of the professional manufacturer of TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine) Slurry Separation Plant in China, GN solids control recently provide standard design TBM slurry separation system with different treating capacity, normally the required slurry volume is very big, we can provide separation system with capacity of 240m3/h, 360m3/h, 500m3/h, 1000m3/h and customized design TBM slurry separation system as per our client’s requirement. Also we can provide TBM slurry dewatering decanter centrifuge if you need to get more clear water and drier discharged solids, the water can be recovered to save cost.


A basic TBM slurry separation unit including: coarse solids separation shaker, double deck shale shaker with hydrocyclones, feeding pump ( for desander cone and desilter cone), fluids collection mud tank with tank accessories.


The coarse solids shaker is used to separate the big solids, stones, sands and other big mass from the slurry and protect the equipments in the next process. The shaker screens to be used is a type of slot screen instead of woven screen, which is more wear resistance in separation of coarse solids.
The mud cleaner is a combination of desander cone, desilter cone and double deck bottom shale shaker, 2 feeding pump transfer the slurry to desander cone, desilter cone separately. The desander cone cut point is 45 microns, the desilter cone cut point is 25 microns, both of the desander cone and desilter cone are made of 100% polyurethane material. Compared with single deck bottom shale shaker, the double deck shale shaker can separate the discharged solids much drier, so that the users can collect the discharged solids easily by trucks.
The mud tank to collect the slurry will storage the slurry temporarily and after the final treatment of desilter cone, the clean fluids will be reused to keep the TBM project working well.
