Recently one batch of solids vacuum pump are shipped to offshore drilling platform, it can be used to transfer drilling cuttings ( drilling waste), clean the cabin, clean the drilling platform, clean the mud tank, etc. It is an ideal equipment to transfer slurry with high content solids, high density, high viscosity.
We have 3 models of solids vacuum pump with nominal transfer rate of 40m3/h, 20m3/h, 10m3/h, the capacity will be varied for different material. For the max model GNSP-40B vacuum pump, the max suction distance is 50, the max discharge distance is 1000m, and max transfer solids content is 80%, the max allowed solids size is 75mm. The user need to prepare a air compressor for air supply to the vacuum pump, the air demand is 17m3/min. There are 2 mode for option, automatic and manual, for normal condition, automatic option will be selected, for special material and special working condition, the user can choose manual operation.
The smaller size vacuum pump is compact design and moveable design. The max solids size is 50mm, the max discharge distance is 500m, and air demand is 8m3/min and 4.2 m3/min.
Except for solids vacuum pump, we also provide other types transfer pump, like centrifugal pump, submersible slurry pump, shear pump, screw pump, etc. Compared with these pumps, the vacuum pump’s design is more compact, no need to use electricity, less power consumption, can transfer longer distance. Especially for offshore drilling platform, electricity power is limited to be used, vacuum pump is an ideal way to transfer drilling cuttings compared with screw conveyor and other types pump, just the user need to do small changes on the design to make it suitable for offshore drilling platform application.
