Small water well rig may no need mud system, just requiring drill rig and mud pump. But for deep water well drilling, mud system is also necessary to get better drilling performance, and give better project to the drill rig bit and mud pump.
GN Solids Control mainly focus on oil drilling mud system. And we also have some client from water well drilling project, get mud system from GN; For example, client from Niger, they have 100 water wells project to improve the local life quality, and they bought the rig fro Italy Drillmec brand, and have mud system from GN.
Generally, we can offer 200gpm/500gp/1000gpm mud system, and we have standard model for the mentioned capacity mud system. If required by client, we can also offer customized system. Among the standard system, 500gpm mud system is the most popular, equipped with below items:
1) 1ea shale shaker GNZS703. GN Solids own patent shale shaker with 3 panel can give good performance, reliable working for the mud treatment, and we can offer coarse steel screen with much longer lifetime to fit for the system.
2) 1ea mud cleaner GNZJ703-1S8N. This unit is combination of 1ea shaker, 1ea desander cones and 8ea desilter cones. Mud cleaner, Small footprint, and 2nd and 3nd phase treatment, to remove most solids above 30microns.
3) 1ea mud hopper, the mud hopper is necessary to mix the chemicals and adjust the gravity of drilling fluids.
4) 3ea centrifugal pump. 2ea centrifugal pump is used for feeding the mud cleaner, desander cones and desilter cones. 1ea centrifugal pump working with mud hopper, to give power for mixing the chemicals.
5) 1ea mud tank to support all above mentioned solids control equipment. The mud tank is same size with container, can be locked on trailer, guarantee on the safety during transportation.
6) 1ea submersible slurry pump, this is option. The client can buy from GN the slurry pump for feeding the mud system, and even the hose to connect the slurry pump to the mud system.
