GN will show a 14 inch bowl decanter centrifuga at OTC, after the show, it will be sold out to South America. To length the service life of decanter centrifuga in drilling fluids separation, proper installation & maintenance is necessary.

At present, GN provide the decanter centrifuga below:

decanter centrifuga

decanter centrifuga

By bowl speed: high speed decanter centrifuga, middle speed decanter centrifuga y VFD decanter centrifuga

By bowl diameter: 14inch bowl, 8.7 inch bowl, 18inch bowl y 22 inch bowl decanter centrifuga

By speed adjustable o no: fixed speed decanter centrifuga y VFD decanter centrifuga

By screw propeller protection method: coating with tungsten alloy o welding with tungsten carbide tiles

Totally we have GNLW223, GNLW363, GNLW452, GNLW453, GNLW553 series centrifuga. The main components of GN decanter centrifuga are as below:

1 bowl drive motor 2 screw conveyor drive motor 3 gear box 4 screw conveyor 5 bowl 6 hydraulic coupling 7 skid 8 vibration isolator 9 collection box 10 solids discharge chute 11 feed tube 12 fluids discharge churt 13support bracket

Among them, gear box, feed tube and screw conveyor is the most wearable parts, you need regular maintenance on them.

GN solids control provide solution for oilfield drilling waste disposal.

Oil and gas wells cannot be drilled without creating waste. However, with good waste management practices, the amount of waste can be reduced. By far, the greatest volume of waste generated in the drilling process is drilled cuttings. The first step is to use good solids control equipment, such as the GN linear motion shale shaker, mud cleaner, and decanter centrifuges.

When operated properly, the solids control equipment removes drilled solids from the mud, maintaining the rheology and thereby decreasing the need for dilution. Good solids control equipmentoperated properly also yields drier solids. Both decreased dilution and drier solids reduces waste and increase profits for the operator.

The second step is to use good drilling waste treatment equipments, like GN hi-G shaker or vertical cutting dryer, big bowl big volume decanter centrifuge, drilling waste collection box, dewatering unit etc. NOV Brandt called vertical cutting dryer “Vortex dryer”, there is also horizontal dryer.

GN decanter centrifuges are widely used in complete drilling fluids recycling system, work together with cutting dryer. Such drilling fluids circulation system is widely used in Venezuela and other South American countries.

 Venezuela’s proven oil reserves are among the top ten in the world. Today, Venezuela is the fifth largest oil exporting country in the world with the second-largest reserves of heavy crude oil (after Canada).

 There is big demand of oilfield drilling mud system/solids control system in Venezuela. Before they mainly purchased the drilling mud system from USA . But now more and more clients realize that they can purchase rig packages from China, although the delivery time and transportation will be longer and complicated, they can save a considerable drilling cost.

A complete drilling fluids circulation system including shale shaker, mud cleaner( or separate desander, desilter), screw conveyer , Cutting dryer, recycling mud tank, decanter centrifuge(with feeding pump), drilling mud reserve tank/storage tank, etc.

After processed by cutting dryer, the large drilling cuttings have been separated out, the drilling fluids flows to recycling tank or to decanter centrifuge through screw pump. Since decanter centrifuge has higher separation factor than cutting dryer, it can separate fine particles from the drilling fluids and recycling barite to keep the drilling fluids balance.
