Recently, GN finished the fabrication of a batch solids control equipment ordered by an oilfield service company from Venezuela. More than 10 units drilling mud centrifugal pump are part of the order and already packed waiting for delivery.
In drilling mud recycling system, the centrifugal pump is a type of very important equipment that is always used for drilling mud transferring. There are several applications of the centrifugal pump as below.

Centrifugal Pump used for feeding to cyclone unit
Normally is the solids control system, de-sander, de-silter andmud cleaner would be used to remove fine solids. Centrifugal pump could be used to suck the mud after treated by the shale shaker, and send to the de-sander and de-silter cyclone. In the meanwhile, the centrifugal pump gives the power or pressure for mud processing in cyclone.

Centrifugal Pump used for mud mixing
By connecting with mixing hopper and manifold, the centrifugal pump can be used as a mixing pump for adding mud material into the drilling mud. The pump also has shearing function for some polymers.

Centrifugal Pump used at trip tank
On rig site, when replacing the drilling pipe, drilling mud need to be pumped down to the drilling well for supplement of the pressure decreasing. The centrifugal pump is an ideal equipment to do this job.

Centrifugal Pump used as supercharge pump
The recycled drilling mud finally will be pumped back to rig top and going down to the drilling bit. Between the mud system tank and high pressure mud pump, the centrifugal pump could be used as a bridge for transferring the active drilling mud to mud pump.

All the spare parts of GN centrifugal pump are interchangeable with world famous brand pump, which makes the maintenance of the pump more convenient. To ensure a long working life, GN adopts hard ductile iron alloy as the material of pump casing and impeller. For more information on GN centrifugal pump, please no hesitate to contact with GN.
