GN Solids Control is leading manufacturer from China who has been working on solids control for many years. Now GN Solids Control has two branch companies, one is GN Solids America LLC (which is located in Houston, TX), the other one is GN Solids Russia (which is located in Moscow, Russia). Many large companies are using GN mud systems to separate the solids from fluids.
Just some days before, GN Solids Control provided one set of GNMS-500GL mud system for one HDD client. The treating capacity of this system is 500 GPM. With an extra mud tank, it can be used to storage more mud when is HDD area.
GN Solids Control professional engineers went to the worksite and helped this client to set up this system, trained the onsite operators. All the after sales service was only last for 7 days, it can be used proficiently by the operators, the 7 days also including the guidance of the setup this mud system.
This 500 GPM mud system for HDD is including the following equipments:
1. One set GN Shale Shaker
The mud after drilling the horizontal drilling rigs will be sent to the shaker in advance. By using different API no. shaker screens, GN shakers can be used to separating different solids size. Generally speaking, particles larger than 100 microns will be separated by shaker.
2. One set GN Mud Cleaner
Fluids will be pump in the mud cleaner for finer separation after treated by GN shaker. Two different size cyclones will separate the solids from 100 microns to 25 microns. Here is a 2 phase separation: the 10 inch cyclones separate solids larger than 50 microns, while the 4 inch cyclones separated solids larger than 25 microns.
3. One set GN Jet Mud Mixer
GN Jet Mud Mixer is effectively used to add chemicals in the drilling fluids so they can be reused for horizontal drilling again.
4. Three Sets GN Centrifugal Pumps
Two pumps are used to feed into the mud cleaner, while a third centrifugal pump is used to pump the chemicals in the mud tank.
5. One Set Mud Tank
There are also some light on the tank in order to provide a better working condition.
