As the crude oil market is down, we get more business from trenchless client. More and more sets of customized mud system export to MENA region.  One client is from North Africa region, they have rich experience in American Augers drilling rig & mud system operation. And now, they are searching for more cost-effective mud system for their HDD operation. They find GN and ask for quotation and mud system drawing for 1000gpm.  As the client only like the MCR-10000 mud system design from America Augers, we offer the similar mud system GNMS-1000GXL mud system.

GNMS-1000GXL mud system contains:

3sets of shale shaker: GNZS703E-HB shaker. Each shaker model has treating capacity 500gpm. And 3sets of shaker can reach up to 1500gpm. As the client’s request, they will use two of them, and one of them as backup.

2sets of mud cleaner: GNZJ703E-2S12N.  Each mud cleaner have treating capacity 1000gpm. And 2sets of mud cleaner can reach up to 1000gpm. As the client’s request, they will use one of them for operation, the other one as backup.

3sets of centrifugal pump; two pump for feeding the cyclones in mud cleaner, and one pump for mixing hopper.

1set mixing hopper for mixing bentonite or barite.

trailer mounted mud tank with eight tyre for easy movement from site to site.

Another client from Middle East region has a smaller project, and need 100-150gpm mud system. The mud system is compact design with much cost effective equipment list, including double deck mud cleaner with coarse mesh screen, and four cyclones. The mud cleaner can remove +40microns solids particles. After mud cleaner, the clean mud will go to clean tank directly, and where bentonite or barite may also mixing there. One mud hopper and mixing pump also attached.

If you have some HDD project and need mud system, pls contact us freely.

As China high end solids control equipment, GN win good reputation in worldwide market with high quality & good price. Based on the many years brand accumulation, even during the low oil price period, GN can have good development.

1) About 1million oily sludge treatment project for Middle East

This is the first time to build oily sludge treatment system by GN Solids Control. With the help from client, GN design and modify the equipment configurations many times, and finally satisfy the need of client. The system is under commissioning in jobsite, GN sales people, mechanical engineer and electrical engineer are working for the commissioning at jobsite, together with clients.

The oily sludge treatment system mainly including feeding system, Pre-mixing and heating system, screening separation module, centrifuge module, chemical dosing module, three phase separation module, micro-bubble separation module, solids washing module etc.

We shall update to potential clients with sludge system working performance, and jobsite working videos.

Shaker screen size is accurately defined by API size, it is range of separation points. But many client ask price of shaker screen in mesh number. How can we conversion the mesh number to API size? Different shaker screen have different calculation method. GN screen API size and separation points, pls check from GN website:

The screen size, screen qty, shaker screen locking method, shaker deck length, working performance etc. are same between GN shale shaker and Swaco shale shaker.  This is why we say this two model are equivalent and replacement.

2) GN 14inch bowl size decanter centrifuge, equivalent to Swaco 518 centrifuge / Derrick DE1000 centrifuge.

GN 14inch bowl decanter centrifuge have the same bowl size, and similar treating capacity to the US brand centrifuge mentioned in the title.

If you need more information, pls contact us freely.

Shale shaker tank is the first phase separation in drilling mud system. The performance is mainly based on the shale shaker quality, and the shaker quality is mainly based on the shaker screen working performance.

GN Solids Control is complete line solids control equipment company, even the shaker screen, it is produced by GN own workshop. We welcome visitors to check GN screen workshop in suburb of Beijing, China.
