2 full sets cutting drying system will be finished soon and will be dispatched to South America. The drying system can be used to treat both oil base mud cuttings, as well as water based mud cuttings.
The cuttings drying system for South America client is customized per client’s request. The client purchases from GN for many years. They owns many of GN equipment, especially decanter centrifuges, they have over 10 sets different models of GN decanter centrifuge, for both drilling rig solids control system and drilling waste cuttings treatment system. As the client said, all GN equipment works well so far. That is why they continue order new systems from GN. This time, the client ordered the 1-skid cuttings drying systems. They want the systems to help them expend their business.
The system is including following equipment:
1) GNCD930D vertical cuttings dryer. The GN Vertical Cutting Dryer uses centrifugal force to dry drilled solids in oil or synthetic base fluids. A stainless steel screen bowl traps “wet” solids and accelerates them up 900RPM with G force to 420G or super high speed 1200RPM with G force to 750G The can reduce oil on cuttings to 3% or 5%. 3% ~ 5% oil on cuttings is the discharge requirement in most countries.
2) Linear motion High G Force Drying shaker GNZS594HGE-LD.
GN high G shaker is designed for primary solids control separation, as well as drying the cuttings from the primary solids control equipments, recover silts and ultra-fine sands, provide solids in a consistently stackable and conveyable form and requires no expensive chemicals or polymers. GN high G drying Shaker with Adjustable G force Up to 8.0 G.
3) High speed decanter centrifuge GNLW336CG-VFD. The high speed centrifuge is used to remove ultra fine solids from the recovered liquid from high G shaker or decanter centrifuges.
1-skid cuttings drying system is equipped with both VG dryer and high G dryer, jobsite operators can choose the suitable separation equipment per his jobsite condition.
