GN Mud De-watering Unit

GN Solids Control Co LTD released the newly designed drilling mud de-watering unit to meet the growing market demand for drilling waste management. This drilling mud de-watering unit is distributed by GN Solids China, GN Solids America, GN Solids Russia, GN Solids Australia, as well as GN authorized distributors around the world.

The GN1500 Series 20FT drilling mud de-watering unit provides a process of chemically enhanced configuration to remove the fine solids smaller than 5 microns from water based drilling fluids.

As we know, the traditional solids control equipment will remove solids above 5 micrometers, meaning that colloidal-sized particles which are smaller than 5 microns will stay in the solids control system. To keep up the drilling mud properties, the operators have to dilute the drilling fluids with water. This uses more water to create more oil production waste.

By utilizing the GN1500 20FT drilling mud de-watering unit, the consequence is a chemically enhanced flocculation of colloidal and ultra-fine drilled solids will be efficiently removed by a GN de-watering centrifuge.

To the zero discharged closed loop mud system, GN drilling mud de-watering unit is a very important unit to treat the waste. The de-watering unit also holds down the oil production waste that has to be institutionalized for treatment and disposition. Before entering the de-watering phase, the weighted drilling mud first enters the mechanical decanter centrifuge for the reduction of mud density.

The GN 20 Ft Drilling mud containerized de-watering unit can be enraptured as a standard 20 ft container. The GN drilling mud de-watering unit includes all the standard de-watering ingredients. The de-watering decanter centrifuge made by GN Solids Control is available in telescopic skid mounting or drilling mud tank mounting.

Process of GN Drilling Mud De-watering Unit:
1) The flocculent mixing unit is used to develop the polymer and coagulant fluid.
2) The slurry pump will feed original drilling mud to the decanter centrifuge
3) The chemical pump will get rid of the chemical fluids and feed to the centrifuge.
4) The chemical and mud will mix inside the feeding tube of the decanter centrifuge.
5) The decanter centrifuge will separate the solids from the mud and discharge clean water.

5) De-watering Decanter Centrifuge
A GNLW363CG-VFD de-watering centrifuge is the most popular size centrifuge in the oil drilling industry. It can be used for fine/ultra fine solids separation, barites recovery and zero-discharge de-watering. With its removable legs, the GNLW363 Decanter Centrifuge can be used on mud tank or the telescopic skid for drilling waste management. The bowl diameter of the GNLW363 Decanter Centrifuge is around 14inch (360mm) with bowl length 50inch (1270mm). 3.5 is good bowl length/diameter ration for oil drilling mud treatment. GNLW363 decanter centrifuge is run by main motor and back motor with heavy-duty gearbox.

The drilling mud de-watering unit is not only widely used in petroleum, gas drilling solids control process, but also in TBM mud treatment, slurry treatment, and waste management tasks.
