drilling waste management

As the oil and gas exploration and production technology is improving day by day, the traditional mud recycling system is gradually replaced by automatic, systematic and close-looped mud recycling system. Cutting dryers is more and more used together with the solid control system in the drilling rigs to meet the critical environmental requirement. The cutting dryer can meet the environmental requirement and recover and recycle more material for reuse.


Among all of GN’s products, one of them is the star product, that is cutting dryer. No matter in the flow line for solid control or for waste management, it has shown great performance. There are two types of cutting dryer, fixed speed and VFD. GN can manufacture them according to different customer’s requirements and save money for customers. The screen bowl’s maximum diameter is 930mm. And there are three different kind of screens for your choice, 250 micron, 350 micron and 500 micron. The handling capacity is 30 to 50 tons per hour. Tungsten carbide protect the flights on the rotor from abrasive solids and ensure longer operation life. The special design of high pressure air knife can clean the basket screen automatically and easily, and avoid the screen to be blinded by the viscosity mud and water based mud. The flushing system with specially designed nozzles around the body of cutting dryer can avoid the liquid discharge channel being blocked by sediments. The lubrication system is electrically interlocked with the main motor starter to prevent machine operation in the event of low or no oil pressure to the gearbox. The VFD control panel can facilitate soft starting, fingertip control of the VFD system can change the motor speed and thus the G force can be changed to the working conditions. The VFD system is made by ABB or SIEMENS and it is explosive proof.

Since its establishment, GN Solids Control is always an innovative company that is always striving to research and develop new technologies and upgrade its product fleets to improve its efficiency and help customers to save money. The commitment of keeping its technology and product on the cutting edge keeps GN as a leading manufacturer in the solid control area, not only in China but also in the world range. Recently GN just got the fabrication of a new product-centrifugal type degasser done in its China HQ, and GN is planning its debut at the upcoming largest oil show in Beijing-CIPPE.

170204 Centrifugal Degasser 2
This centrifugal degasser adopts many advancing features of similar products from both China and all around the world. It could be applied in many kinds of drilling fluids recycling system to remove the cut-in gas from the drilling fluids for recovering the mud property, maintaining mud viscosity, improving drilling efficiency and reducing drilling cost.
Comparing with GN’s ZCQ series vacuum degasser, GN centrifugal degasser inherited its advantages and also got some new great features below.
1. Compact design and small footprint, with its vertical structure, the centrifugal degasser could be  installed firmly as a very compact equipment , which will leave more space on tank surface for other solid control equipment.
2. Energy saving. The centrifugal degasser is no longer needing a vacuum pump to produce vacuum for removing the cut-in gas out of the mud which will save a lot of energy. And no extra feeding pump is needed for transferring the drilling mud into the degasser unit, which is also a cost and energy saving solution.
3. The impellers could also be used as agitators for preventing the solids settling at the bottom of the tank.
The centrifugal degasser is mainly composted of transmission unit, impelling unit, gas flow manifold, pressurizing unit, coarse piece separating unit and fixing pieces. The structure is simple and it could be manufactured in a short time to guarantee the requirement of some urgent delivery.

This centrifugal degasser is an optimized solids control equipment from the traditional degasser. If you are interested on this unit, please feel free to contact with GN for more information.

GN Solids Control is one of the largest solid control and waste management companies which specializes in manufacturing the related equipment, such as shale shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, vacuum degasser, mud gas separator, decanter centrifuge, agitator, centrifugal pump, cutting dryer, screw pump, shear pump, mud gun and so on. This week GN sold its cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge to a Chinese customer in Shandong province for the 1500 HP drilling rig.2016-09-29-vertical-cuttings-dryer
Among all of GN’s products, the cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge are the star products as they have been in the market for a long time and very mature and reliable, many customers like them. There are two types of cutting dryer, fixed speed and VFD.There are three different kind of screens for your choice, 250 micron, 350 micron and 500 micron. The handling capacity is 30 to 50 tons per hour. The screen bowl’s maximum diameter is 930mm. The special design of high pressure air knife can clean the basket screen automatically and easily, and avoid the screen to be blinded by the viscosity mud and water based mud. The drilling mud will first comes to the cutting dryer for the first degree separation to eliminate the greater solids. After being treating by the cutting dryer, the slurry will be transferred to the decanter centrifuge which can separate even smaller solids up to 20 micons. The decanter centrifuge is also using the centrifugal force to separate the solids and it works similarly to the cutting dryer. After the separation by the decanter centrifuge, the mud will be in great feature for reuse for the drilling work and will be ready to be pumped downhole.
That’s the brief introduction about the cutting dryer and decanter centrifuge. Hopefully it will be useful to you. GN has many more solid control equipment, they can be used in different operational situations and help you achieve your target easily and cost effectively.

GN Solids Control is an international company with its solid control and waste management business spanning all around the world. Established in 2007 in China, it’s always striving to provide the good quality product to the customer and help them saving cost. In 2014, GN Solids Control subsequently established its overseas office in US and Russia, to better serve the local customer and provide them the quick delivery and excellent after sales service. Now GN is an innovative company that is always striving to keep its products on the cutting edge of the industry.Drilling Cuttings Solidification
Recently GN successfully released its third generation of solidification unit for drilling cuttings. Based on its former two generations, now GN made some new improvement and fix some problems from the feedback of the oilfield users. Different from its former two generations built on one skid, this new generation was built on two separate skids, one skid is with drilling cuttings collecting hopper and screw conveyor, the other skid is storage tank, solidification mixer vessel and conveyor. This two skid can save the footprint and make the onsite oilfield layout more flexible due to the limited area in the field under some special operation circumstances. This new unit features with larger storage capacity for solidification agent, flushing system and stronger mixing unit for heavy duty work. And it’s still convenient for transportation, can be easily fit into the 40 feet container. And the unit will handle most of the waste from the discharges from the shale shaker and decanter centrifuge. The cost is relatively low comparing to other similar products. This is a very cost effective equipment for you.Solidification Unit
That’s the basic introduction of the drilling cuttings solidification unit. Hopefully it will be useful  and helpful to you. GN has many more solid control systems, they can be used in different operational situations and help you achieve your target easily and cost effectively.
