GN Solids Control Co. has been provided many sets of solids control and drill cuttings management systems. Many of GN equipments are famous and popular in the global world due to excellent performance, long lasting usage and rest assured after sales service.
GN engineers just developed one new equipment for treating drill cuttings came out from cuttings dryer, decanter centrifuge, desander and desilter, which is called GN Solidification Unit or GN Stabilization Unit.
The treating capacity of GN solidification unit is 10 m³/h. By adding into different materials, the drill cuttings can be changed into solid, which is very convenient to bury. All the drilling cuttings, no matter OBM, WBM can be treated by GN solidification unit.
The main component of GN Solidification Unit:
1. Collecting Hopper
The collecting hopper is used to carry the cuttings, capacity can reach to 5 m³. There is one screw conveyor (with the motor of 7.5kw) under the collecting hopper to transfer drill cuttings to High- shear mixer.
2. Storage box
Two storage boxes are used to storage chemicals and cements separately. Each one can storage 1000L materials. There are two screw conveyors (1.1 kw) under these storage boxes. So all the chemicals and cements can also be feed into the high-shear mixer for shearing.
3. High-shear mixer
The High-shear mixer is used to mix all the drill cuttings with absorber and cements together. The shear with a large force can mix these things thoroughly. There’s also one liquid inlet, chemicals can be also be added to help mix the drill cuttings.
GN solidification unit has already been used in client’s worksite. The client is one of the world’s top 500 companies on construction industry. They also purchased some Hi-G shakers for treating the drill cuttings. The high G force is up to 8.0G. GN Hi-G shakers are mainly used for treat water base mud. For OBM, we usually recommend to use GN cuttings dryer.
