The HDD/ TBM desander unit are a compact design mud cleaning system, the technical configuration is as below:
Double deck shale shaker with hydrocylones as 2 phase cleaning equipment, the first phase cleaning is coarse solids separation shaker screen, normally we use API 40 or API 60 shaker screen; the second phase cleaning is fine solids separation by desander cone, the solids are drop down to the fine mesh shaker screen to collect more useful fluids. One feeding pump for desander cone are installed on the compact mud tank with electric control panel, cable connection, pipelines and accessories. The cut point of the desander unit is 40 microns. The GNMS-500D desander unit with one unit of desander cone, the treating capacity is 500gpm; GNMS-1000D deander unit with 2ea desander cone, the treating capacity is 1000gpm. The shaker screen installed on first layer and second layer are both composite material frame shaker screen, the screen locking way is by wedges.


The dewatering centrifuge GNLW554E-VFD is used after the desander unit, the separation cut point is 2 microns, it can separate most of the fine solids, the big bowl big volume decanter centrifuge can meet the requirement of big tdewatering capacity, the recovery fluids will be storage at the 3 mixing & storage tank, the jet mud mixer can mix the fluids with powder chemicals to prepare for new drilling fluids, which can be reused to save drilling cost. The pipelines between 3 mud tanks are in parallel connection, so that the jet mud mixer can mix in any tank. Each tank with its mud agitator for better mixing.

Recently GN solids control shipped 3 package of dewatering centrifuge unit to Europe client, the configuration is as below:


3 sets of GNLW224EP-VFD decanter centrifuge
3 sets of dewatering unit
3 sets of centrifuge feeding pump ( positive displacement pump) installed on the fluids collection tank.
The working principal of 1 package of dewatering centrifuge unit is as below:


The screw pump feed the fluids to VFD decanter centrifuge, in the meanwhile, the chemical is mixed by dewatering unit and the chemical dosing pump transfer the chemical to decanter centrifuge feed tube, so the solids can be separated out easily with chemical mixing and collected by cuttings box, the fluids will drop down into the fluids collection box for reuse or send to further waste water treatment. The discharged water is clear enough since most ultra fine solids are separated out.
GNLW224EP-VFD decanter centrifuge is a 9 inch bowl mini decanter centrifuge with bowl length 36.4 inch, the bowl length is longer than GNLW223 series centrifuge with longer clarification segment, the discharged water will be more clear with the longer bowl cone. The max bowl speed is 5000rpm, typical bowl speed is 0 ~ 4500 rpm, with max G force is 3077G, typical G force is 2492G, the main motor is 11KW, back drive motor power is 5.5KW, the gearbox ratio is 95:1, gearbox torque is 1400 N.M.


The VFD control panel controlled the main motor, back drive motor and feed pump motor frequency, the Germany Netzsch brand screw pump work steadily to the decanter centrifuge, the fluids touch part is wear resistance alloy iron.
Except for 9 inch bowl decanter centrifuge, we also provide dewatering centrifuge package with other size decanter centrifuge, including 14 inch bowl, 18 inch bowl, 22 inch bowl, 30 inch bowl with different model dewatering unit and feed pump.

TBM project require to use high volume water for cooling the machine during boring, it costs very high for the water consumption, and in many countries the discharged slurry should be treated well by environmental protection laws, it is also costly to send the slurry to third party waste treatment facility. The operator need a full package dewatering system which can treat the slurry, the recovery water can be used for drilling, the discharged solids can be collected by waste bag or waste collection box and transport to other place for brick making or landfill. The discharged solids should be with less moisture as possible, the recovery water should be clean enough and suitable to reuse it. Recently GN solids control shipped another set of TBM slurry dewatering centrifuge system to our clients in Singapore, this is repeat order for TBM project.


The big bowl decanter centrifuge is major equipment for the dewatering centrifuge package, working with chemical dosing unit, the big bowl decanter centrifuge treating capacity will be less than designed treating capacity, the actual treating capacity will depend on the raw material solids content, solids size distribution , chemical adding type and quantity, and other aspects. Normally positive displacement pump will be used to feed to the decanter centrifuge, one unit of 3 compartment powder adding system with proper agitator, control panel, chemical dosing pump, supporting pipelines, valves, liquid level meter, hopper. All of the above equipments are installed in the same skid for convenient transportation, and installed inside standard contained which with windows, doors, air conditioner, lightings for convenient operation.


The VFD control panel is non explosion proof with PLC smart control and HMI surface, the 55KW main motor speed, 37KW back drive motor speed, 22KW pump speed can be controlled by VFD control panel. For more information, pls contact with sales engineer.

Recently GN Solids Control shipped one unit of GNLW554ET-VFD big bowl decanter centrifuge for oil sludge treatment project in China. For 22 inch bowl 2 phase separation horizontal decanter centrifuge, we have 3 models for option based on different applications.
GNLW553C-VFD decanter centrifuge, bowl diameter 22 inch, bowl length 71 inch
GNLW554EP-VFD decanter centrifuge, bowl diameter 22 inch, bowl length 91 inch


GNLW554ET-VFD decanter centrifuge, bowl diameter 22 inch, bowl length 91 inch, max speed is 3150rpm, max G force is 3051G, bowl L/R ratio is 4.2, the main motor power is 90KW, the back drive motor is 45KW,as the dewatering/ thickening decanter centrifuge, The T series decanter centrifuge beach angle is 8.5 degree, the main purpose is to keep the decanter centrifuge cone section as longer as possible, so that the drying and dewatering area of the decanter centrifuge is longer, the dewatering performance will be better, and the discharged solids cake is much drier. And also the 8.5 degree lead the discharge more smooth and increase the discharge efficiency.


The same features of all the three models decanter centrifuge:
1) The screw propeller is protected by tungsten carbide tiles which is more wear resistance
2) The screw is made of duplex stainless steel 2205 by centrifugal casting, the open impeller design increase the separation efficiency and improve the performance.
3) Liquid separation port and solids discharge port are both protected by tungsten alloy and it is interchangeable.
4) The bowl material is duplex stainless steel 2205 or 2304, the other components are made of SS316L.

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.
