Russia oil drilling market prefers to buy more and more solids control equipment from China as the strained relationship between Russia and US. Since 2014, The sales amount to Russia have a big percentage for our exporting business.

1)Mud Cleaner:

GN Mud cleaner is combination of shale shaker, desander cones and desilter cones. Three units in one make the footprint much smaller, save lots of space for the surface of mud tank system.

GN have different type shale shaker, with 2 panel, 3 panel or 4 panel. Thus, the mud cleaner is also different which can be 2 panel, 3 panel or 4 panel deck shaker.

The mud cleaner treating capacity also decided by the desander cones qty or  desilter cones qty, which can be 200gpm, 500gpm, 800gpm,1000gpm or  1500gpm. We can control the treating capacity by the quantity of desander or desilter.

2) Decanter centrifuge

GN Decanter centrifuge have different options. For oil drilling, the most popular centrifuge model is GNLW363 and GNLW452. GNLW363 is high speed centrifuge with 14inch bowl size and can be used with fixed speed control panel or variable speed control panel; GNLW452 is middle speed centrifuge which is specialized for barite recovery or big solids separation.

Except for above two model centrifuge, we also have another model centrifuge in different bowl size. Pls check more from GN website:  GN Decanter centrifuge


3) Vertical cuttings dryer:

GN vertical cuttings dryer is used for drilling waste management. As to support the environmental protection, we design the machine as per the request from government policy. Up to now, the centrifuge show super working performance when deal with oil based mud drilling cuttings, saving lots of cost for clients on the OBM drilling cuttings treatment, in separation and transportation.

If you need any support on solids control or drilling waste management, pls contact us freely.

Simply speaking, mud cleaner is shale shaker, desander, desilter assy, it is also called 3 in 1. GNZJ703 & GNZJ853 is the best choice for large treating capacity, large screen area mud cleaner, most of our clients use GN made mud cleaner before GN decanter centrifuge, this action can improve the performance of GN decanting centrifuge.

Mud cleaner maintenance including

1 vibration motor maintenance

(1)Clean dust on shell regularly

(2)Before operating, must check the bolts to confirm whether there is loose or not. Otherwise, we must screw bolts tight before running shaker

(3)Inspect the cable, whether there is wear, hold down, crushing, etc.

(4)the vibration motor should be under good lubrication during operation:

Motors before fixed on shaker, the bearing is filled with SKF specific lubricate grease, the temperature range is -40 ~ 200℃

2 shaker screen maintenance

(1)Before every shut off, the shaker should run without any load for 5-10 minutes, at the same time, use clean water to flush screen clean

(2)Every time finish operation, the shaker frame and screen should be flushed by water. Pls replace new screen or repair the damaged screen once it is found damage, otherwise large cutting may dropped into the clean mud and influence the following process.

3 Electric cabinet maintenance

Mud cleaner is a combination of shale shaker, desander, desilter for oilfield drilling mud system, NOV Brandt also called it mud conditioner. There are many suppliers for mud cleaners, Derrick, MI-SWACO, Brandt, GN Solids Control, here we will make a comparison of the 4 model of mud cleaners. Take 1000gpm unit for example:

1 Derrick Mud Cleaner Features:

A round desilter manifold and/or a desander manifold is mounted in a cone discharge collection pan installed over the vibrating screen.Underflow from the hydrocyclones is received by the collection pan, which may feed directly to discharge or onto the vibrating screens for additional processing.

Derrick’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 10” & 4”

2 MI-SWACO Mud Cleaner features:

Low profile through

Bypass intergral

Vertical installation method of desilter cone

MI-SWACO’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 12” and 4”

3 Brandt Mud Cleaner

Patented pin-and-hole screen securing system

Brandt’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 10” or 12” and 4”

4 GN Mud Cleaner

Small footprint, compact design; desilter cone is installed vertical but inclined, GN standard desander cone and desilter cone is also 10 inch and 4 inch, which is same with Derrick’s.

GN mud cleane is convenient to ship it by containers, GNZJ703-2S12N(1000gpm) footprint is only 2403x1883x2195mm, but same treating capacity, Brandt Cobra 16/2 Mud Conditioner dimension is 2692 mm x 2032 mm x 2565 mm. For same treating capacity and function equivalent, GN mud cleaner is with the smallest size.

There are a lot of names given to the combination of hydrocyclone and shale shaker. In NOV, it is called mud conditioner; while Derrick, flow line cleaner; Mi swaco, mud cleaner; in China, GN Solids Control, also named it mud cleaner.
There are six mud conditioner types: King Cobra Mud Conditioner; Cobra Mud Conditioner; LCM-3D Mud Conditioner; Mini Cobra 2-Panel Mud Conditioner; Mini Cobra 3-Panel Mud Conditioner; King Cobra Venom Mud Conditioner. The differences is the shale shaker, and the number of cones.gn mud cleaner
There are 5 models in GN Solids Control: GNZJ83-3 GNPJ70-3 GNZJ63-3 GNZJ83-2 GNTJ60,  two kinds of shaker GNZS Linear Motion Shale Shaker, GNPS Balanced elliptical shale shaker are available.
The National Oilwell Varco? Brandt? King Cobra Mud Conditioner utilizes a combination of hydrocyclones and a King Cobra shale shaker to separate solids from liquid. The combination of hydrocyclone cones utilized is dependent upon the specific application of duty. Cone combinations typically consist of a desander cones (10-inch or 12-inch) and desilter cones (4-inch) which are properly sized to handle over 125% of the flow rate.

    • Combo Cleaner Mud Combo Unit

    The Combo Cleaner combines hydrocyclones and a Vibratory Screen to provide liquid/solids separation at a high flow rate. As a first stage, the mud is processed through the hydrocyclones, the cleaned fluids is carried out the Hydrocyclone overflow and the concentrated underflow (solids) are deposited on a vibratory screen deck. The screen deck imparts a rapid linear motion, producing an energy force that dewaters and conveys the solids to the discharge end of the screen. The screened fluids flows into a collection pan located below the screen deck. The cleaned liquid overflow from the hydrocyclones and the screened liquid may be blended together.Drilling Mud Cleaner Combo Unit – Hydrocyclones over a  Linear Motion Shale Shaker Screening Deck.
