GN Drill Cuttings Management Modular Unit

GN Solids Control Co. Ltd is a leading designing and manufacturing company to provide turnkey solutions on drill cuttings management systems for global clients.
To meet the demands of modular design for fast remove and quick assemble with a cost effective budget, GN engineers have redesigned the solids control and drilling waste management systems into modular units.

High G Drying Shaker Unit Layout
1. GN Cuttings Dryer Unit
GN Cuttings Dryer is fixed on one telescopic skid, working height can be adjusted when the dryer is working or transporting. VFD control cabinet and flushing pump can be located on the skid. One lifting crane can be mounted on the skid for easy repair and maintenance. Walkway and guardrails are also assembled on the skid for convenient and safe operating.Vertical Cuttings Dryer Skid

2. GN Hi-G Shaker Unit
GN Drying Shaker is especially used to treat WBM. One set of GNZS594HGE-LD shaker is mounted on the top of a tapered mud tank. Drill cuttings separated by primary shakers can be transferred to GN Hi-G shaker by a screw conveyor. The cuttings discharged by drying shaker can be feed into a GN centrifuge for further separation.

3. GN Decanter Centrifuge Unit
The structure of GN Decanter Centrifuge Unit is pretty the same as GN Cuttings Dryer Unit, it’s also fixed on one telescopic skid. One positive displacement pump and one variable speed control cabinet (optional) can be also fixed on the skid.

4. GN Solidification Unit
GN Solidification or Stabilization Unit is mainly used to treat the cuttings from desander, desilter, cuttings dryer or decanter centrifuge. All these cuttings are collected in the large hopper of GN solidification unit. By adding different chemicals and cements, the cuttings can be changed into solids pattern which is very easy for transport and move. drilling cuttings solidsfication unit
5. GN Cuttings Transfer Unit
This unit is mainly used to storage and transfer the cuttings from GN dryer or GN Hi-G shaker. Drill cuttings discharged from the shakers or desilters are transferred to the collection hopper. Then the cuttings are feed by one vacuum cuttings pump. Cuttings Transfer Unit
6. GN Intermediary Mud Transfer Unit

Mud Transfer Unit
This mud unit includes cylindrical tank, submersible pump, mud agitator and control cabinet. GN mud agitator keeps the inner mud (which usually comes from Hi-G shaker) from sedimentation, and GN submersible pump helps to pump the fluid into GN decanter centrifuge.
7. GN Catching Tank Unit
GN also provides modular catching tank unit to storage and transfer those hazardous waste. Special design to lock the mud tank when transporting keeps the fluid from spill.

GN Solidification Unit for Treating Drill Cuttings

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. 2015.6.30 High G dryer with mud tank

GN Solidification Unit for One Largest Domestic Client

GN Solids Control Co. Ltd has many experience engineers, who are keep designing advance equipments to meet our customers changing demands. Now the new invented GN Drill Cuttings Solidification Unit is delivered to one large client’s worksite for drilling cuttings further separation.
Now all the drilling cuttings can be treated by GN decanter centrifuge and GN cuttings dryer, which are all mechanical separation. Oil in the cuttings can be controlled around 5%. But due to the strict environment protection rule, it’s better to find a cost effective way to treat the cuttings less than 5% oil.
GN Solidification Unit can mix cement and silicon or some other chemicals thoroughly with the drill cuttings, so after fully mixing and chemical reaction, the solids come out from GN Solidification Unit can be reused for construction materials.drilling solidification unit
GN Solidification Unit includes the following parts:
1. GN Cuttings Hopper
The cuttings hopper is used to storage all the cuttings from High G drying shaker or decanter centrifuge. Capacity reaches to 5 CBM.
2. GN Screw Conveyor
It transfers the cuttings to the High shear mixing tank. 2015.6.30 High G dryer with mud tank
3. Two Storage Boxes
One is used for storaging cement and the other one is used to storage absorber. There is separated screw conveyor connected to the storage box, so they can be transferred to the shearing tank.
4. Mixing Tank
All the cuttings, cement, absorber as well as some necessary liquid chemicals will be thoroughly mixed and sheared. So the solidified cuttings will be pushed to the oue let and discharged, then they can be reused for construction materials etc.
Besides this GN Solidification Unit, GN also provides two High G shakers to this client. All the drill fluids will be separated by GN drying shaker in advance.
For the other cuttings from decanter centrifuge, they can also be feed into GN solidification unit for further separating. Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach GN Solids America.2015.6.30 GN cuttings solidification unit
