Recently, GN Solids Control shipped a set of sludge treatment system to a China domestic customer. At present, the system has been completely installed and commissioned.

This sludge treatment plant is mainly used for recovering oil from industrial oily sludges such as oily sludge produced at the drilling site, and oil sludge from refinery tank cleaning. After treatment, the recovered oil can be used as fuel or sold for profit; the oil content in the recovered water and solids is small, and it is easy to detoxify by further processes.

The GN Solids Control sludge treatment system is a stepped three-phase separation system. It mainly consists of the following modules:

Premixing module — The premixing module is used to collect sludge. Different sources of sludge have different solid contents and different viscosities. This will pose a huge challenge to sludge treatment. The GN Solids Control sludge separation system requires the solids content of the feed sludge to be less than 20%. Therefore, in the mixing module, the operator needs to add water to dilute the sludge, and at the same time, the chemicals and the diluted sludge can be fully mixed and stirred.

Large particle separation module-A drilling fluid shale shaker is installed in this module to remove large particles of solids in sludge, thereby reducing solids content. This procedure can greatly reduce the workload of subsequent sedimentation centrifuges.

Solid-liquid separation module-a decanter centrifuge in this module is used to remove fine particles from the material. This module mainly separates the mixed liquid (water-oil mixture) and solids. The separated sludge is returned to the homogenizer for washing, and the liquid is sent to the next step for further processing.

Three-phase separation module-disc high-speed separator is used for three-phase separation of oil, water and ultra-fine solids. During this process, the solid content of the feed mixture should be less than 3%, and the solid size should be less than 400 microns.

For the transportation of sludge materials, we recommend the use GN vacuum pumps, which are suitable for high-risk gas explosion-proof areas. In addition, we also provide container-type chemical dosing devices for adding chemicals to sludge treatment systems.
