A good mud mixing and additive system should be a jet-shear mud mixing system, it must has three functions, shearing, jet mixing and drilling fluids additive. GN design and produce such multiple function system.

GN mud mixing and additive system

GN mud mixing and additive system can be mounted on a separate skid then connected with a mud mixing tank, or they can be mounted on the skid of the tank. The latter way is a compact structure of mud mixing unit, and the former way can be more flexible to move the mud mixing unit from one place to another. But you do not have to move it all the time, the mud mixing pipelines which is controlled by butterfly valves can reach this target, too.

Venturi hopper with a mixing pump is the most simple way for the mud mixing unit. Centrifugal pump can be replaced by shearing pump, then you call it jet-shear mud mixing system.

 What is drilling mud additives?

Drilling fluid additives are specialty products that serve a specific need – and Halliburton and Baroid are known for high-quality additives that deliver the consistent performance mandated by environmental regulations. Our commitment to research and development ensures that our products and processes reflect the latest advancements in fluid additive technology.

Jet shear mud mixing systems 

Jet shear mud mixing systems are designed to use shear pump to efficiently mix solids with liquids. Jet shear systems ensure efficient and mixing of soluble polymers and bentonite used in water-based drilling fluids, therefore eliminating “fish eyes”. Drilling fluid yield and gel strength properties are instantly obtained with hydraulic shearing of bentonite or organophilic clays.

The addition of liquid additives is made easy with the incorporation of an injection port into the jet pump. This port is capable of handling liquid additives such as; lubricants, polyacrylamides, and oil-wetting emulsifiers. By incorporating an in-line mixer, the operator is given the choice of imparting low shear into the drilling mud. When the appropriate level of mixing is imparted into the drilling mud, polymers are efficiently used, therefore lowering additive costs.

Bentonite desander is a very important part of Bentonite Mud Recycling Equipment, also refered as solids control system. The Bentonite desanders are used in treating and straining bentonite slurry after the shale shaker which is always the first phase solids control equipment. And the desilter and decanting centrifuge separate solids particles during the bentonite mud recovery process after the bentonite desander.

We just finished a proposal for Complete bentonite recycling system for client.

Bentonite recycling system

Bentonite recycling systema client.

Bentonite reycling system for piling work.

I want you to confirm whether the  system in your brochure “I attached that please check” is that system can replace the function of the separate parts ,Bentonite Desander 120 mt3/hr,Bentonite mixer 10m3/hr Bentonite return pump 180m3/hr , 25Hp “Diesel motor”Bentonite circulating pump 180m3/hr “Elec. motor” 15kw.

Our proposal for the bentonite recovery system:

The tank are divided into 3 compartmentst,from right to left are A,Shale Shaker compartment B,desander compartment C,Mixing compartment .The Return Pump feed mud to the shaker,and after the treatment of shaker goes to the shaker compartment. Then mud overflow to desander compartment, and then Continue reading »

Bentonite Mud Recycling Equipment is also called drilling mud solids control equipment,usually,use linear  shale shaker,mud cleaners,and decanting centrifuges to recycle bentonite mud.

GN Solids Control Supply a complete list of Bentonite mud recycling equipments.

Bentonite is an absorbent aluminium phyllosilicate, generally impure clay consisting mostly of montmorillonite. There are a few types of bentonites and their names depend on the dominant elements, such as K, Na, Ca, and Al. As noted in several places in the geologic literature, there are some nomenclatorial problems with the classification of bentonite clays. Bentonite usually forms from weathering of volcanic ash, most often in the presence of water.

Sodium bentonite expands when wet, possibly absorbing several times its dry mass in water. Because of its excellent colloidal properties (see Odom ref below) it is often used in drilling mud for oil and gas wells and for geotechnical and environmental investigations.
Much of bentonite’s usefulness in the drilling and geotechnical engineering industry comes from its unique rheological properties. Relatively small quantities of bentonite suspended in water form a viscous, shear thinning material. Most often, bentonite suspensions are also thixotropic, although rare cases of rheopectic behavior have also been reported. At high enough concentrations (~60 grams of bentonite per litre of suspension), bentonite suspensions begin to take on the characteristics of a gel (a fluid with a minimum yield strength required to make it move). For these reasons it is a common component of drilling mud desander used to curtail drilling fluid invasion by its propensity for aiding in the formation of mud cake.

In industrial drilling field,bentonie mud recycling equipment are widely used.
