Mud Cleaning Systems are an essential part of any drilling operation. They are used to store and circulate drilling mud, which is a fluid that is used to lubricate and cool the drill bit, remove cuttings from the borehole, and prevent the borehole from collapsing.

Agitators and centrifugal pumps are two of the most important components of a mud tank system. Agitators are used to mix and circulate the drilling mud, while centrifugal pumps are used to move the mud from the tank to the drill bit.



mud agitator2Agitators are typically powered by electric motors and have a rotating shaft with blades or paddles that are submerged in the mud. The agitator blades or paddles create turbulence in the mud, which helps to keep the solids suspended and prevents them from settling into the bottom of the tank.

There are two main types of agitators: vertical and horizontal. Vertical agitators are mounted on the side of the mud tank and have a shaft that

extends vertically into the mud. Horizontal agitators are mounted on the bottom of the mud tank and have a shaft that extends horizontally across the tank. GN agitators are Vertical agitators.

The type of agitator that is best for a particular mud tank system will depend on a number of factors, including the size of the tank, the type of drilling mud being used, and the desired level of mixing.

Centrifugal Pumps

They are typically powered by electric motors and have a rotating impeller that is housed in a casing. The impeller spins at high speed, which creates a centrifugal force that forces the mud to flow through the casing and out of the pump.

Centrifugal pumps are available in a variety of sizes and flow rates. The size and flow rate of the pump that is best for a particular mud tank system will depend on the size of the tank, the type of drilling mud being used, and the desired flow rate.



Agitators and centrifugal pumps are essential components of any mud tank system. If you are interested, please send me an email to samuel@gnsolidscontrol.co,  you can help to ensure that your mud tank system operates properly and safely.

The GN Vertical Cuttings Dryer (VCD) is a solids control equipment specially designed to treat OBM and SBM waste. It uses centrifugal force to dry drilled solids in oil or synthetic base fluids. The VCD can reduce the moisture content of cuttings to below 5%, which helps to reduce waste volume and meet environmental objectives.

The VCD is typically used in conjunction with a decanting centrifuge. The centrifuge further reduces the moisture content of the recovered mud, making it easier to transport and dispose of.

Most clients choose to mount the VCD and centrifuge on a telescopic skid. This allows the equipment to be easily moved and transported. The recovered solid mud from the centrifuge can drop into the tanks below, without requiring a transfer pump.

The VCD is fed with a 4kW screw pump. The centrifuge is fed with a 7.5kW screw pump. Both pumps are made by the German company NETZSCH. The major components of the pumps are made in Germany and assembled in China.

We can provide you with VCD and other equipment as options. If you have any questions and want to know more details please send me an email: samuel@gnsolidscontro.co

Water well drilling company is very popular in Desert area or other water shortage areas, like Middle East, Africa, Mongolia etc. Water well drilling company usually works for government civil engineering projects, and requiring water well drilling rig, mud system, generator, etc. to bid for the water well drilling project. There are also some water well drilling along with oil drilling company, to supply water to the oil drilling operations.

GN Solids Control is China leading manufacturer for solids control mud system. We have rich experience in mud system production, operation, commissioning and maintenance. Recently, we have one client from Africa who just bought one set 500gpm mud system from GN. Pls see below project informations.

The mud system will work for 500gpm mud treatment, and we provide

  • 1 set mud tank, size smaller than 40GP container for easier shipment.
  • 1 set shale shaker, GNZS703 3 panel shale shaker for better performance.
  • 1 set mud cleaner, GNZJ703-1S8N, with 1ea deck shaker, 1ea desander cyclones and 8ea desilter cyclones.
  • 2 sets centrifugal pump for feeding the desander and desilter cyclones.
  • 1 set mud agitator is equipped in third compartment to mixing the mud to avoid settlement.
  • 1 set mixing hopper and 1 set mixing pump for chemical adding function.
  • 1 set generator to power the mud system unit.

After GN mud system arrived at client’s jobsite, we arrange interpreter and engineer to the jobsite to help for the installation and commissioning. With GN mud system, the waste slurry can be recycled and reuse, this reduce the cost on chemicals and mud in large degree, and the clean mud guarantee on the drill bit lifetime, help the smooth going project.

Except for mud system, GN solids control can also offer other solids liquid separation items:

1) Industry centrifuges: 9inch bowl centrifuge, 14inch bowl centrifuge, 18inch bowl centrifuge, 22inch bowl centrifuge etc.

2) drilling waste management: vertical cuttings dryer, solidification unit, thermal desorption unit, etc.

3) various model shaker screens.

GN Mud Guns for agitating
GN Solids Control is one of the largest companies in China to provide turnkey solids control solutions in oil and gas industries. During the past years development, GN Solids Control has already become a world famous brand in the solids control field. With the development of GN Solids America LLC and GN Solids Russia, GN will have the chance to service more and more clients, and right now GN solids control and drilling waste management systems have already been used in over 60 countries.
GN is a company that can provide whole solids control project to customers, and on the other side, GN Solids Control is manufacturing various kinds of spare parts such as mud guns, centrifugal pumps, shear pumps, submersible pumps etc. Some of these spare parts are sell very well, and after the clients have used GN solids control spare parts for a while, they come to GN for turnkey solutions because they already have the confidence about the excellent quality of GN solids control and drilling waste management systems.

Today we would like to give you a short introduction about GN Mud Guns. As we all know, GN mud guns are used for flush the corners of the fluids in mud tanks, and they are usually working together with mud agitators. When a mud agitator is keep the solids rotating in mud tank, the mud gun can help to work on the corner due the large working pressure.
There are two common types for GN mud guns, one is a fixed type (which means the mud gun is fixed on a mud tank and can only work for the specific angle), the other type is a rotating one, the mud gun can rotating by adjusting the hand lever on the top. Usually, we recommend customers to use rotating type, although it is a little expensive, it is quite convenient to use. The working length of mud gun shaft can be decided by the height of tank.
