Recently one batch of solids vacuum pump are shipped to Africa. As the most professional solids vacuum pump manufacturer in China, GN solids control can produce 3 models vacuum pump with different treating capacity for different applications. We have 3 models vacuum pump for option: GNSP-40B with max flow rate 40m3/h, GNSP-20B with max flow rate 20m3/h, GNSP-10B with flow rate 10m3/h.


The vacuum pump is 100% air operated pump to transfer different materials, including:
1) Waste mud/ cuttings discharged from shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge
2) Drilling fluids
3) Oil sludge, oil tank bottom waste sludge
4) Dredging slurry/ mining tailings/ industrial waste mud
5) Barge holdings and vessel bottom cleaning
6) Sand, solids, fine silt, coarse solids
7) Hazardous waste/ oil contaminated earth
8) Animal waste


The GNSP-10B, GNSP-20B vacuum pump are all made as portable design for convenient movement, the actual flow rate will vary based on different materials transfer, for example, the flow rate to transfer oil sludge with high viscosity and to transfer normal sludge is very different. The user need to prepare air compressor for air supply and provide enough pressure. Also the client need to prepare proper length suction and discharge pipe to connect with the solids vacuum pump. The solids vacuum pump is the ideal equipment to transfer the solids with the most compact size without electricity power supply required.
GNSP-40B vacuum pump can be put on the trailer/ truck for convenient transportation.

Last Month we shipped one unit of sludge vacuum pump to India for oil sludge transfer with capacity 40m3/h. This month the client repeat order again for a smaller flow rate 20m3/h vacuum pump, they need a smaller size vacuum pump.
When the client use the vacuum pump to transfer the oil sludge or tank bottom cleaning oil sludge, the real capacity will reduce according to different material. The higher density & viscosity of the material, the less transfer capacity it will produce.
The major components of a vacuum pump including:
1) Lifting frame
2) Vacuum tank and pedestal comnination
3) Air suction combination
4) Slurry suction pipe combination
5) Slurry discharge pipe combination
6) Air jet tube components
7) Air inlet pipe combination
8) Pressure pipe combination
9) Pneumatic control box


We will suggest the user to have one set of spare parts for their operation for convenient replacement once it is required.
What other accessories is required to operate the vacuum pump?
This is also the most common questions from our clients, they need to know the operation cost to use the sludge vacuum pump. There is pressure and air volume supply requirement for different model vacuum pump. Also the user need to prepare the strong enough suction pipe and discharge pipe with suitable length as per their own requirement. Our vacuum pump is 100% air operated pump without electricity power supply, the user need to prepare for suitable model air compressor. Before purchasing, we will send the question list to our client to judge if our vacuum pump can work for their project or not, especially for the suction depth/height, suction length and discharge distance.
GNSP-40B is the largest model we can produce right now, we can make customized design if the client need to put several units one one skid, the GNSP-20B, GNSP-10B vacuum pump is portable with compact design.

GN Solids Control finished the oil exhibition at OTC 2019 in Houston, TX successfully. We have showed both of our traditional equipments and new technology at OTC. Centrifugal pump, Decanter centrifuge, shale shaker and composite material shaker screen are most popular products among our complete products line, which have been sold to over 70 countries in the world. We can provide OEM shaker screen for our own shale shaker and replacement shaker screens for world famous brand shale shaker. The composite material shaker screen working life is proved much longer and with larger screen area.


The new technology ViST vacuum screen, Sludge vacuum pump are introduced and many clients showed interests on them. The ViST unit are used together with the shale shaker, the purpose is to reduce drilling waste and recycle more drilling fluids. You can check the working video from GN website: http://www.gnsolidscontrol.com/video/vist-vacuum-screen-technology-for-shaker-test-video


It is installed under the last screen of the shale shaker or mounted externally whichever is convenient. The ViST increased the recovered drilling fluids volume and drier cuttings of the drilling waste. The less drilling waste is produced so the cost to treat the drilling waste is reduced. The operator can save money for drilling fluids and treat drilling waste.
The vacuum pump is not a new product, It has been widely used to transfer the oil sludge, waste oil, drilling cuttings, cements, dredging slurry, waste slurry, etc.


Both of the vacuum screen and vacuum pump are air operated, no need electricity power. It is convenient when electricity power is limited. The air compressor is required to provide the air.


We can also produce and customized design the tank cleaning system, waste water treatment system, complete set oil sludge separation system, drilling waste management system, mud recycling system and solids control system. For more information, pls contact with GN sales engineer.

As a professional automatic tank cleaning system manufacturer in China, GN solids control recently finished production of one set of automatic tank cleaning system for our client in South America. Except for tank cleaning system, we also produce waste water treatment plant for oil water and solids separation system and water treatment plant for construction mud settlement and industrial waste water settlement.


Also we can produce oil water separator and Inclined Plate Clarifier which is used to removal of settleable solids in a variety of waste streams.This is normally used before the oil water separator to separate the ultra fine solids from the waste streams, this is to protect the oil water separator from damaged or blocked by the high solids content and reach better performance.


The slop processing capacity is 30m3/h and the clean water treating capacity 7.5m3.
The technical configuration is as below:
1) Filter to separate the coarse solids bigger than 2mm
2) The vacuum pump to pump the waste water from tank to Inclined Plate Clarifier
3) The chemical dosing unit working with static mixer for flocculation, so that the accumulated solids could be separated out easily.


4) The buffer tank as storage tank of clean water with liquid level meter to control the pumps automatically.
5) Different types of pumps including high pressure centrifugal pump, vacuum pump, air operated positive displacement pump.
All the equipments and components are installed on one skid for convenient transportation.
Why use GN tank cleaning system?


Some of our clients ever inquiry us that the decanter centrifuge working efficiency is pretty slow and the cost is very high, they are seeking for more economical and high efficiency way for waste water treatment, that is the reason we developed the different solutions for oil, water, solids separation.
For more details, pls contact with GN solids control.

Recently 1 set of oil sludge treatment plant is almost ready for shipment to Asia client, it is under testing in our facility before shipment. The treating capacity for oil sludge separation is 5 m3/h. We also have standard or customized designed oil sludge separation system with 1 m3/h and 15m3/h for option.


The general working process is as below:
GN sludge vacuum pump transfer the oil sludge from the waste pit/pond to the pre-mixing modular, the pre-mixing tank equipped with heating lines which can heat the oil sludge to increase the flowability of the oil sludge and increase the separation efficiency of the shale shaker, decanter centrifuge. By adding the chemicals, it will also increase the efficiency of the further process steps. 2 mud agitator and one submersible slurry pump are installed on the pre-mixing tank with electric control system.
Then the pre-treatment oil sludge is transferred to the shale shaker to separate the coarse solids by the submersible slurry pump, it also reduces the solids content of the oil sludge so that the centrifuge could separate the fine solids easily. The shaker screen is specially made with big opening to separate coarse solids to protect the decanter centrifuge.
The screw pump feed the oil sludge to the decanter centrifuge, the discharged fluids is flow to the 3 phase centrifuge to separate the oil and water. The clean water and pure oil is flow to the buffer tank , which will be pumped to the oil storage tank and water storage tank. The water can be used for the circulation again.
The 20ft container loading dewatering unit will be used when necessary with decanter centrifuge, the chemical jetting is to make the oil mixture easily separated by the decanter centrifuge.
