Austrialia is a good market for no-dig drilling project and has a large demand on no-dig drilling equipment. From year of 2010, GN Solids exported complete many sets of mud cleaning system there. So far, GN Solids is well known locally and awarded good reputation.

As China leading manufacturer of solids control system, GN Solids focus on customer’s requirement and always offer the best equipment. Recently, we just dispatched one set of hudraulic lifting and descending 1000GPM mud cleaning system to Australia. The system equipment configurations as below:

  • two sets of mud tanks,
  • 2 pcs of shale shaker
  • 1 pc of Mud Cleaner with desliter cones
  • mud agitators, mud hoppers, mud guns etc.

GN compact mud cleaning system is widely used in horizontal directional drilling, coalbed methane drilling, diamond drilling, water well drilling, pile drilling etc. With mud cleaning system, the constrction can lead to less pollution on environment and make full use of drilling material.

See the photo on the right, it is a mud circulation system with mud gas separator, in oil drilling solids control system, the 1st phase cleaning equipments of mud circulation system is shale shaker, which is fed the mud from high pressure manifold, the mud gas separator is fed mud from the chock manifold. When much of harmful gas is found during drilling, they close the valve to stop feeding the shale shaker, and open the valve to feed to mud gas separator, and use hundreds of exhaust pipe to transfer the harmful gas from mud gas separator to a place far from well head, and use flare ignition device to burn it. Mud gas separator is not a part of solids control system, GN can manufacture both of them, so we put them together for your convenience.

Mud circulation system is also called mud cleaning system, mud recycling system, solids control system, Usually if a mud circulation system with mud gas separator, it is usually oil & gas drilling or geothermal, it can not be HDD or water well drilling. Mud gas separator is horizontally installed on the skid with the chock manifold on it together, it is easy for transportation.

The mud cleaning system produced by GN solids control is widely used for horizontal directional drilling , water welling drilling ,coal bed methane, geothermal hole and mining diamond core drilling , it is used to separate the drill cuttings from the mud, so that the clean mud can be re-circulated to continue the drilling process.

As the Geothermal drilling usually close or inside the downtown, this requires the mud system to be compact with less footprint and user friendly with less noisy. Also Geothermal well drilling sometimes require high capacity performance for deep wells. Below is the jobsite photo of mud cleaning system for geothermal drilling, which is produced and commissioning by GN solids control.

Like water well drilling, mud rotary drilling is also the desired method for installing geothermal loops. As the bit penetrates the soil, it creates smaller fragmented pieces that are called drill cuttings. The mud carries these cuttings to surface to create an open hole from the top down to the bottom. The drill cuttings are collected into a mud pan or settling pit on surface and then the mud is re-circulated to continue the drilling process.

Natural gas drilling rigs can be used not only to identify geologic reservoirs but also to create holes that allow the extraction of natural gas from those reservoirs. Primarily in onshore gas fields once a well has been drilled, the drilling rig will be moved off of the well and a service rig (a smaller rig) that is purpose-built for completions will be moved on to the well to get the well on line. This frees up the drilling rig to drill another hole and streamlines the operation as well as allowing for specialization of certain services, i.e., completions vs. drilling.

Natural gas is a naturally occurring gas mixture consisting primarily of methane, typically with 0–20% higher hydrocarbons. It is found associated with other hydrocarbon fuel, in coal beds, as methane clathrates, and is an important fuel source and a major feedstock for fertilizers.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, uses huge volumes of water, chemicals and sand injected into rock at high pressure to release natural gas. Its development has unleashed a natural gas boom in the US and around the world. US has developed such method to drill for natural gas.

GN solids control provide mud cleaning system for directional drilling and fracking for natural gas, we are thinking to design such mud system for US market. All the electric motors and control panels will use IECex certified or US motors.

To design a system, we need to clarify the following questions:

1 What kind of drilling you are doing?

2 What is your required active capacity of the mud pits

3 What equipments you used before? If you have no experience, we will provide our standard design.

Many of GN clients use Ditch Witch rig and buy mud cleaning system from GN. Unlike other China Solids Control companies, they mainly only focus on oil gas drilling multitank big system, GN Solids Control is the most professional for compact Mud System for HDD or CBM in China.

Ditch Witch complete directional drills package including directional drilling rigs, fluids management system, drill pipe, and integrated electronics that enable the tracker operator to disable power to the drilling unit’s thrust and rotation.  Ditch Witch compact directional drilling rigs are ideal for small contractors and designed for easy setup on jobsites once considered too tight for directional drilling.

Ditch Witch rig mud cleaning system

GN Solids Control design and manufacture complete equipments for HDD (Horizontal

Directional Drilling) and CBM(Coal Bed Methane) drilling mud recycling system of :

150GPM / 350GPM / 500GPM / 800GPM / 1000GPM / 1500GPM /2000GPM.

GN150gpm mud system is specially designed for separating drilling cuttings from drilling mud within no dig processes. Due to the mini container dimensions, the mud recycling separation plant guarantees minimum setup times and an easy transportation. The mini system has been ready for operation on site and GN will dispatch engineer to provide first installation and commissioning to save customer’s time and connection work.

There’s a lot to consider when purchasing or leasing a horizontal directional drill — features, durability, support, training and overall value. But one area often overlooked is the potential resale value of the unit.
Too often contractors will overlook the potential value of the machine after its useful life in their operation is over. In addition, as more contractors utilize leasing as an acquisition strategy, resale value becomes a more important component in the purchase decision.

Vermeer has distributor everywhere in the world, you can get good after-sales service from them easily.

Last month GN shipped 2 sets of 800gpm mud cleaner to a China Government Company for HDD project. They checked our complete mud system taken to CIPPE, and would like to request 2 sets similar one with small changes.

Now we have standard HDD mud system( mud cleaner) with standard equipments and specs for  150gpm, 350gpm, 500gpm, 800gpm, 1000gpm. Clients can make smaller changes according to his separate requirement.

800gpm mud cleaner for HDD

800gpm mud cleaner for HDD

To make some changes, such system can be used for water well drilling, coal bed methane, geothermal well drilling, diamond drilling, core drilling etc projects. So sometimes clients ask us to make a system with 2 functions( can be used for 2 different projects, and can meet the flow rate requirement for each project). So they can save cost for another set mud cleaner.

How to design the mud tank for the mud cleaner?

1 confirm type of the mud tank, trailer mounted, skid mounted or Hydraulic lift type.

2   confirm the dimension of the mud tank

  You need to consider 3aspects, 1 required storage capacity  2 transportation limit in Client’s country 3 international shipments limit, by container, by bulk cargo or by flat rack container.

3 confirm the qty of the mud tank(according to required mud storage capacity and equipments required place)

4 how many compartments for each tank( according to equipments and function of each compartment)

5 layout of the equipments on the tank
