GN Mud cleaning System For HDD Sailing to Middle East

Even though the passing year is really law the oil and gas industry, typically the crude oil price is into the bottom low record in the past 11 years. There is continue to need for solids control devices, this time, maybe not for oil and coal drilling, but for the HDD drilling projects, the CBM drilling projects and occasion the TBM piling operates.
The principle and functions for any mud recycling systems intended for other drillings like HDD, TBM or water very well drilling are same as solids control systems, the equipment essential:
1 . shale shaker, a single set or two, which is made the decision per the requested dealing with capacity of the whole system,

GN Mud Recycling System For HDD Sailing to Middle East
2 . desander and desilter cones, in HDD drilling, especially the large capacity HDD drillings, there is always a mud cleaner combining both desander cones and desilter cones. For smaller HDD mud systems, there is a desilter mud cleaner only. And for TBM works, because the treating typical is not so strict, they will always use desander cones together with under flow shaker.
several. Mud mixing system or even calling jet mud mixer, this is a standard equipment for all those HDD projects no matter a greater capacity one or a smaller just one. Because for HDD is effective, they need to add new chemical compounds into the cleaned drilling mud, while the pilings media is definitely water, there is no need to use the particular mixing device for adding or TBM.
Of course , every single jobsite and each jobsite’s positioned country is different in natural environment standards and regulations, therefore each set of complete system is not exactly the same, like the change in locations, in configuration, and the equipment adopted.
GN Solids Control is the leading supplier of HDD mud these mud cleaning systems for many years, and GN has experiences in more when compared with 60 countries and territories. GN’s engineer team possesses more than 20 years of functioning experience in this field. Should you have this kind of project, pls seek advice from GN for more information.

GN Mud Recycling System for ZJ30 Drilling Rig

As a leading manufacturer of drilling mud recycling system and equipment, GN Solids Control could provide the mud system for the drilling rig ranging from 350HP to 2000 HP. This article would give a brief introduction on GN’s drilling mud recycling system for ZJ30 rig.

The drilling rig ZJ30 is defined in China domestic market. This model is also defined as a 750HP rig that is widely known in the market out of China. GN’s ZJ30 drilling rig mud system is designed with the treating capacity of 180 cubic meters per hour and the total mud storage volume is 120 cubic meters.


This mud recycling system includes 3-unit tanks of processing tank, mud mixing tank and storage tank. All 3 tanks are same dimension and the onsite layout is linear type. The processing tank of the mud system includes all the 4 stages of solids control and 5 stages purification process. The first stage solids control is 2 unit shale shakers with 3-panel screens, the capacity of the shaker unit is 120 cubic meters per hour. After the shale shaker, the vacuum degasser is located to remove the gas in the drilling mud thus the working efficiency of the centrifugal pump could be greatly increased, Thus the cyclone would have sufficient pressure when the mud was fed. This ZJ30 rig mud system could be equipped with separate de-sanding and de-silting unit. The de-sanding unit and the de-silting unit is cost less. There is another option of mud cleaner could be installed to replace the de-sanding and de-silting unit. The under shaker of the mud cleaner could be used for further drying the solids particles.


According to the space on the mud tank top, the centrifuge unit is designed located on the second tank. This second tank is divided into 2 or 3 compartments, one of the compartments is used as the centrifuge compartments and the rest compartments are used to store the active drilling mud.

The mud mixing unit is installed on the third tank with 45 kw mixing pump to mix the drilling mud in all the mud storage compartments. Besides the mixing pump, this ZJ30 mud system is also equipped with shearing pump that is used to cut the polymers mud chemicals. This shearing pump would be connected with a chemicals tank which used to mixing the drilling mud chemicals.

GN Economic Mud Recycling Unit

Most of the drilling project will need a drilling mud recycling unit to reduce the drilling cost and promote the drilling process. In normal oil and gas drilling project, always the usage of the drilling fluids is very large that need several mud tanks to store the drilling mud. Different from this type drilling, there are several other drilling projects that no need a large drilling mud volume. The footprint and cost are the key factors the contractor will consider.

As a leading drilling fluids recycling equipment manufacturer and supplier, GN solids control also has a good reputation in the HDD and piling market. This type drilling project need compact structure and cost economic mud recycling unit.


GN has a self-contained drilling mud system  designed especially for HDD project. As per the flow capacity, the mud system design is classified into 200GPM, 350GPM, 500GPM, 800GPM, 1000GPM and 1500GPM. Most of the design only has one skid with all primary solids control equipment installed on one tank. According to the mud storage capacity requirement, additional storage tanks may be needed. Some users request decanter centrifuge for fine solids separation. Always this type mud system has all mud recycling equipment, transferring pump and mud mixing equipment. Comparing with oil drilling mud system, the HDD mud system has smaller footprint and the cost is less.

For some drilling project like the piling process or TBM drilling, the separation of drilling mud is not so strict. The contractors only need a de-sanding unit to remove the large size solids in the drilling mud. GN’s this type de-sanding unit includes shaker unit and de-sander cyclone installed on over the shaker. This separation unit can process 2 stages solids control. Under the shaker, a catching tank can used to temporally store the active drilling mud; it also has a transferring pump to pump the mud to drilling rig or to storage tank.  The contractor can use other type storage tank to connect with this de-sanding unit and get a skid mounted jet mud mixing unit to compose a drilling mud recycling system that has larger mud storage capacity and mud mixing function.

If you need a drilling mud separation system for small drilling project, please don’t hesitate to contact with GN solids control for a quote and design.

HDD Machine for Pipeline Projects

The HDD mud system in GN solids control items series is varying from promising small to large by 150GPM to 1500GPM. The option of the mud recycling system to large degree is dependent around the type of the HDD machines.


There’s a large spread selection of HDD rig for trenchless market that is varying from the 1.5 tons to some 550 tons rig. 1.5 tons rig might be seen as an pit machine as the 550 tons unit could be mega rigs. The HDD machines within the type of 1.5 tons to 4 tons will always be employed for house connections and street crossing. With this class HDD machine, there always no requirement for drilling mud recycling system.


Probably the most frequently needed HDD rigs are individuals within the performance selection of 7 tons to twenty tons thrust and tugging energy. These kinds HDD machines are very dimensioned for traditional pipe installations within the areas and city center projects. The more house service frequently make use of the 7-10 tons relative more compact machine, as the bigger models can be used for drainage pipes installation, more compact sized under-water crossings along with other small pipeline projects.


For more than longer distances pipeline installation, the HDD machine needed come from 35 tons to the greatest machine existing on the market. The applying with this class HDD machine is frequently for middle and pressure pipeline.


Just about all obstacles across the pipeline traces like rivers, ponds, mountain side rails and traffic lines might be overcome using the HDD technologies. For that reasons from the environment and financial aspects, it’s get free from use for open crossing around the river or traffic line for pipeline projects. Usually, the specialist company will invariably choose the gear ideal for that project after talking to using the customer.


GN Solids Control knows the whole top quality HDD rigs manufacturer in China because of his position in the market. GN’s HDD mud system happens to be utilized in higher level market like Europe and Australia, to learn more, don’t hesitate to connection with us. The following link is our company’s website:



Mud Recycling System for HDD Rigs

Generally, trenched will be excavated for pipe laying or conduits and cables installing. While, in some case that trenching is not practical for geographic factors or environmental reasons, directional boring, usually known as horizontal directional drilling(shortened as HDD) will be applied. HDD is a typical example of trenchless technology which means using a surface-launched Drilling Waste Management to bore a path for installing infrastructure such as pipelines, gas lines, oil line, sewer lines, water lines, power cable conduits, and telecommunication. HDD is normally applied when a river, road, landscape, or a congested place needs to cross for pipe and cable laying. Until now, installation length by HDD has been up to 2000 meters, and diameters up to 1200 mm have been finished in short length. Yet, that does not necessarily mean that HDD can be adopted for all road-cross or river -cross drilling. Actually, solids rock or sedimentary rock is the most suitable material. HDD is used instead of other techniques mainly for the following benefits. HDD not only makes traffic disruption less and deeper or longer installation possible, but ensures a lower cost and environmentally safer.
