GN Solids Control manufactures different kinds of mud treating system. Last month we finished another set compact mud system for a Australian customer. They will use helicopters to transport these mud systems to a remote area, it will be used to treat the drilling mud from oil and gas drilling rigs.
Here are the main GN treating equipment in this helicopter lifting mud treating system:
1.6 Sets GN Shale Shakers
GN shale shaker as the first phase treating unit, it is a vibration shaker deck fixed with GN made shaker screens which driven by 2 vibrators. GN made shaker deck is made of stainless steel, shaker deck is welded with C groove to fix rubber which keep the drilling mud from penetrating between shaker screen gaps.
2.2 Set GN Mud Cleaners
After treated by shale shaker, GN mud cleaner (includes 10 inch desander cyclones and 4 inch desilter cyclones) is used to further treat the drilling mud. It is a 2 phase treating unit. 2 sets centrifugal pumps are used to feed to those cyclones.
3.1 Set GN Poor Boy Degasser
Poor boy degasser is also called mud gas separator. It is mainly used to eliminate large bubbles in the drilling mud. Usually those poison gas like H2S is burned by a flare igniter far from this whole system. After treated by GN poor boy degaser, the drilling mud will be feed into shaker shaker.
4.8 Sets GN Centrifugal Pumps
GN Centrifugal pump is used to transfer the drilling mud among those mud tanks and also play as a feeding pump for GN mud cleaner.
5.2 Sets GN Jet Mud Mixers
6.18 Set GN Vertical Mud Agitators
7.6 Set GN Compact Mud Tanks
All those above treating equipment are divided into some compact units, which are easy to lift and transport by helicopters.
