GN Solids Control has finished the manufacturing of one 500GPM HDD mud recycler for one Egypt customer. As the top HDD drilling mud treating equipment manufacturer, GN Solids Control has been delivered products to more than seventy countries and regions.
HDD mud recycler help to remove large solids in the drilling slurry, and water can be reused for drilling again. More and more governments have higher demands on the drilling slurry control. In the past, most of the HDD contractors just dump the slurry in a mud pit and evaporate the water naturally which takes long time. While most of the countries are demanding separate out the water before dumping, so contractors using HDD mud recyclers are getting popular.
This GN 500GPM HDDD mud recycler includes the following main components:
1. GN shaker
HDD slurry is feeding into GN shaker first, so coarse solids are separated out. GN shale shaker is working under the vibration force which provided by two vibrators (different G force may be used based on the slurry difference). Shaker screens fixed on the deck separate different size particles, usually shake shaker is used to separate out solids larger than 100 microns.
As a shaker screen manufacturer, GN Solids Control provides various types shaker screens which are suited for Derrick, MI-Swaco, FSI, NOV shale shakers.
GN mud cleaner takes less working room as desander cyclones and desilter cyclones are fixed on the top of shale shaker. After treated by shale shaker, one centrifugal pump will pump the treated fluid into 10 inch desander cyclones where solids larger than 55 microns can be separate out. And solids large 25 microns can be separate out by using 4 inch desilter cyclones.
There is also a trend more and more contractors realize the importance of using GN decanter centrifuges. As with the time goes by, finer solids will accumulated in the drilling slurry, which can be not be separated out by using shale shaker and hydro cyclones.
