GN Solids Control is China good brand of solids control equipment supplier. And each month we export lots of solids control equipment or mud system to overseas client and domestic clients. Recently our warehouse is crowded because of some project equipment ready for delivery.

1) 3 sets of mud agitator for Africa client

The client bought this agitator is GN old client who already bought 2 sets 500gpm compact mud system for HDD drilling. They are really happy about the high quality of mud system and the premium working performance of the mud system. The 500gpm mud system is equipped with 4 panel shale shaker and 4 panel mud cleaner. The shaker screen is composite material shaker screen with much better working performance, longer lifetime and less maintenance. Actually, this client also bought one sets 200gpm mud system in year of 2013 for Dubai project.

2) 2 sets shale shaker for Middle East client

The shale shaker is to update the mud system the client already have for over 2 years. The client buy 2 sets new shale shaker to update their old mud system and this is relative lower cost to ongoing the new project. Because of the down market, many clients want to deduct budget, save cost and do more project. We recommend client to renew the mud system with new equipment, new shaker, new centrifugal pump, new mud cleaner and new agitator. Generally, the mud tanks can last longer time if the daily maintenance is doing each time after use.

Why we should have drill slurry storaged? Mainly it is because of the reasons below:

(1)   Requirement for the carriage and storage of mud on mobile drilling units has increased over the years, it is not convenient to process the drilling mud at the platform, you have to collect the used drill slurry and carry it to drilling fluids plant for process, then recycle the clean drill slurry and disposal the useless cuttings, so that it will not influence the environment.

Drill Slurry Storage

Drill Slurry Storage

(2)   Clean drill slurry should be storaged for use, for drilling , for mixing , for lubricate the drill bit.

(3)   Useless drill cuttings should be collected and storage, then carried to drilling waste management system for process.

GN solids control manufacture drill slurry storage tank for various application, with necessary mud agitators, mud gun, centrifugal pump and mixing hopper. We can produce mud storage tank together with solids control system or separately. Compared with shaker tank and intermediate tank, the pipeline of storage tank is much simple, if required by the clients, we will divide it into several compartment by clapboard. Sometimes mud ditch is installed on each compartment. Handrails, stairs, cleaning gate, valves are included, but walkways are not included. There is flexible hose connected 2 tanks.

Mud agitator is mainly composed of electric motor, gear box and impeller shaft assy, for shaft- connection type mud agitator, it also have coupler. Elastic coupling connect electric motor input shaft and agitator gear box input shaft. Impeller shaft and agitator gear box output shaft are connected by rigid coupling.

agitator gear box

agitator gear box

GN agitator gear box is worm gear reducer, which is combined with explosion-proof motor, enable stable performance in wild severe environment.

Rotation of the drive motor is transferred to the impeller shaft through the directly coupled gear drive. The drive is a reduction agitator gear box and is factory assembled to the drive motor. The drive is sized to apply the maximum torque required to produce the design impeller rotation speed of 60 rpm under 50hz, and 72 rpm under 60hz.

The mud agitator stirs a mud slurry to maintain suspension of solids. The agitator is mounted on top of the mud tank and has one or two impeller(s) immersed in the mud slurry. The impeller shaft is directly coupled to an electric drive motor that is available in several horsepower ratings from 7.5 to 25.

Whatever the drilling is, if only there is mud system, you will have mud mixing and agitation issues after a period of drilling.

Mud mixing equipment

GN jet mud mixer is specially used for mud mixing. GN Jet mud mixer is composed of a venturi type hopper and a centrifugal pump, we have 4 models available, GNSL150-45S,GNSL150-35S, GNSL100-25S,GNSL100-25M with 1320gallons/min, 880gpm, 400gpm and 264gpm mixing capacity.

Mud mixing and agitation equipments

How a venturi hopper work?

The fluid velocity must increase through the constriction to satisfy the equation of continuity, while its pressure must decrease due to conservation of energy: the gain in kinetic energy is balanced by a drop in pressure or a pressure gradient force. An equation for the drop in pressure due to the Venturi effect may be derived from a combination of Bernoulli’s principle and the equation of continuity.
Mud agitation equipments

Mud agitator is mainly used for mud agitation, sometimes for mud mixing. Also in some applications, vacuum degasser also be called a” big mud agitation equipment”.Mud agitator is composed of electric motor and gear box, the popular connection method is direct connection, in some countries, they still use shaft connection mud agitator.

Mud guns are meant to provide supplemental or primary mixing in mud tanks depending on the number being used and the pit size. They are best used in tank corners to keep solids from settling and a mud agitator is placed in the tank center.

Mud Gun

Mud Gun

How to operate the mud gun?

A. Safty information

TURN OFF. LOCK OUT, and TAG OUT the electrical power supply to the pumps feeding the mud guns before servicing.

Inspect the unit regularly, and replace damaged or worn components only with parts supplied by the original equipment manufacturer.

Before entering a mud tank for any reason, the mud agitators should be locked out and tagged out.

B. General maintenance

1. Grease the swivel once a week. Add (2) shots of a multipurpose NLGI no 2 grease.

2. Visually inspect the mud gun assembly for any leaks, loose fittings once a week. Repair as required.

3. Inspect mud gun jet nozzle for excessive wear. The nozzle has a 5/8” bore when new. The nozzle should be changed when the bore is 7/8” or higher. This should be done once a month.

Once installation is complete, the unit can be started by turning the feed pump on. The direction of discharge may be modified to suit the operators requirements by rotating the swivel.

The impeller is fixed to the shaft with bolts to avoid rotating or sway. Its vertical location on the shaft is determined as a height from the tank bottom corresponding to the impeller diameter times 0.75. If dual impellers are desired, straight blades are mounted on the bottom and the canted blade impeller is installed at a point about two-thirds above the tank bottom.

The keyed motor and driven impeller shafts are rigidly connected by a multi-piece coupling, which uses tapered locking bushings to secure the shafts together. Shaft lengths are customized to suit customer specifications. For shafts longer than 8’, a stabilizer is mounted on the tank bottom to support the lower end of the shaft.

Mud agitator maintenance             

Mud agitator maintenance consists of checking gearbox oil level and oil condition and greasing gearbox bearings at required intervals.

1 Before operation, lubricate gearbox with L-CKE/P 220~320# worn gear oil  or with L-CKE/P 320~460# worn gear oil.Verify that lubricant level in the gearbox reaches the bottom of the oil level plug.
