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 not only manufacture every single solid control equipment, but also can provide the customers with solutions and solid control system.GN-Liquid-Mud-Plant-1
The liquid mud plant is one of its systems which mainly used in onshore or offshore to keep the mud properties as good as possible during the mud is circulating in the wellbore. The liquid mud plant is mainly composed of the following equipment, shale shaker, mud agitator, mud gun, centrifugal pump, mud mixing hopper, decanter centrifuge and various kinds of mud tanks. The type of mud tanks includes oil based mud tank, water based mud tank, base oil tank, barite tank, water tank, mud mixing tank and bulk tank. Each tank has its own special functions and will be deployed in different operation situations. Now GN can design and make different shapes and sizes of tanks, such as the round tank, vertical tank and rectangular tanks. The different sizes of liquid mud plants will apply the different sizes of tanks. The liquid mud plant is used to mix, dilute, treat, and adjust different kind of drilling fluids and make sure the fluids can meet the drilling standard and applied great into the well.GN-Liquid-Mud-Plant-2
That’s the basic introduction of the liquid mud plant. Hopefully it will be useful 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.

GN solids control has
designed and produced hundreds of  mud
tank system for oil drilling rigs since 2008. We were also invited by some
tenders of ONGC, Oil India etc. oil company for their mud tank system. If you
have requirement for solids control equipments and mud tanks system, pls
contact with GN solids control sales.

Specifications of painting/ coating:

Internal tank with 2 layers of anticorrosive coatings, tank
outside with 3 layers of coatings, sandblast before painting. Two pack Epoxy zinc,
thickness 75 μ  for inside tank,                                                                                  
     Two Pack( first layer and
middle layer) Epoxy hi-build containing anticorrosive pigmentstwice,  thickness 250 μ   , Surface pigmented( top coating) with high
quality light fast PU pigments, thickness 70 μ for outside tank.

Mud tank materials:

Normally we make rectangular
tank for mud tank system,
sometimes we also make cylindrical tanks when rectangular tank is not suited
for the project, for example, limit of space, large volume, cheaper cost. For
rectangular tanks, we can make it open tank top or closed tank top or with
gratings cover. The mud tank dimension is calculated by the required storage
volume, we can make standard 40ft container size tank and customized size
tanks. The body(shell) of the tank is made of 6mm thickness corrugated steel plates, sometimes 8mm as required. The bottom plate is normally
8mm, sometimes 10mm as required. 3 runner oilfield tank skid with 250mm porch
on both sides.

However the above mentioned specs could be varies for different tenders.

The mud tank system also equipped with shale shaker, mud cleaner, vacuum degasser,
decanter centrifuge, cavity pump, mud hopper, centrifugal pump, mud agitator, mud
gun, slurry pump, and also with necessary mud tank accessories, including clean
gate, man hole, guard rails, stairs, walkway, pipelines, valves, flexible hose,
hammer union, mud overflow line, lightings, etc,

The
solids control system could eliminate the large solid particles within the
drilling mud to reduce the particular solids content so that to guard the
transferring pump which used to transfer the mud back the rig with regard to
reusing. GN just done one set mud solids control system with VFD
decanter centrifuge
for gold mining project in Southeast Okazaki, japan.
This system is a 3 stages separation design model; the equipment configuration
is as beneath:
1 . Shale shaker unit GNZS594E-HB used for coarse strong particle separation.
This shale shaker unit could also be employed as a high G pressure drying
shaker
with variable G force up to 7. 4-panel screen makes a bigger area
for drying the actual drilling mud.
2 . VFD design decanter centrifuge device used for fine solids splitting up.
The first one unit centrifuge goes at a middle speed to eliminate most of the
solids to reduce the particular gravity. The following second system VFD
control centrifuge might run at a high speed to get rid of the ultra fine solids
to make the drilling mud
cleaner
.

3. Screw pump set up to transfer the mud to the centrifuge. Horizontally put in
at the flank of the tank, it helps to tank leading more space for operation
mobility.
4. Mud catching tank
used as sand snare and active mud safe-keeping.
This system is to get rid of the solid particles in the going mud to make the
drilling essential fluids reuse. After the solids currently being removed, the
fluids may be pumped back for recycle and the pump would be
additionally protected as there are less solids particles.
Mud solids control system is very common merchandise and solution that GN
provides. For this purpose, GN might provide separation system intended for oil
drilling, no drill down drilling project and some different industrial solid
and chemical phase separation. For more information, delightful send us email
or even call with no hesitate.
