As one of the professional manufacture of solids control system & drilling waste management system in China, GN solids control can design and produce customized drilling rig mud tank system as per client’s requirement.
We can produce standard solids control equipments like shale shaker, mud cleaner, desander, desilter, centrifugal pump, vacuum degasser, centrifugal degasser, mixing hopper, mud gas separator, etc.
Also we can produce drilling waste management equipments like decanter centrifuge, vertical cuttings dryer, screw conveyor, solids vacuum pump, screw pump, and we can produce oil sludge separation system for refinery oil tank bottom cleaning sludge to recover oil and water.

Recently we shipped one batch of mud agitators with control panel to Middle East client. The mud agitator is installed on top of the shaker tank to stir the drilling mud and prevent it from solids precipitation. These mud agitators are installed for liquid mud plant to mix and storage drilling fluids, the user can produce the mud tanks locally to save freight cost and importation cost. The control panel is installed besides the mud agitator for convenient operation, this is GN OEM control panel with our own explosion proof certificate.


The gear box and explosion proof motor is connected directly, this is compact design to be suitable for mud tank which have limit space to install the equipments. When the client need to install their own motor to match the local explosion proof class, we will provide gearbox connected with coupler, one side is connected with gearbox shaft, one side will be connected with the client’s motor, we only need to check the installation drawing of the motor in advance to confirm the suitability. Normally we install the mud agitator on the tank every 3 meters, this is not fixed, will be varies with different drilling fluids conditions.


The mud agitator will be controlled by the control panel installed on one end of mud tank, and ON/OFF SWITCH will be installed besides the mud agitator for convenient operation, the user can control the on/off/emergency stop of the mud agitator easily when it is necessary. The mud gun will be installed to work together for agitating the drilling fluids to prevent it from sediments.
We can provide mud agitator, mud gun, centrifugal pump, mixing hopper, shale shaker, mud cleaner, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, etc. equipments to the mud tank manufacturers locally, they can produce mud tank and use our equipments.

Recently one set of mud recycling system is ready for shipment, this is for China client. The technical configuration is as below:


1) Separation equipment: one unit of shale shaker and one unit of desander, the shale shaker is to separate the coarse solids from the slurry, the clean fluids dropped down to the shale shaker, one set of slurry pump feed the slurry to the 10 inch desander cone to separate the solids cut point 45 microns, the clean fluids drop into the compartment under the desander, the underflow shale shaker can separate the solids drier and reduce the waste solids volume. The client can collect the dry solids easily by cuttings box or waste bag. The linear motion shale shaker with 3pcs screen panels with composite material frame shaker screens, the desander cone material is outter steel for better strength, and inner material is PU material for abrasion resistence. The vibration motor is Italy Oli brand vibrator, and the shaker screens for the shale shaker and underflow shaker is with same size for easier stock.


2) Customized Mud tank with all the accessories and mud agitator, mud gun to agitate the slurry. We can design customized mud tank for different applications.
3) Pump package including mixing pump, trip pump, centrifugal pump on the oilfield skid for convenient movement. The vertical submersible slurry pump is installed to feed the slurry to the desander cone to save space on the mud tank.
The centrifugal pump is interchangeable with world famous brand centrifugal pump, including all the parts, the major wear parts for pump casing and impeller is made of hard ductile iron alloy for better abrasion resistance.
We produce mud recycling system for HDD, CBM, slurry separation and mining tailings treatment, also we produce mud cleaning system for oil and gas drilling. We also provide solution for any waste treatment.

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,
