GN mud cleane is convenient to ship it by containers, GNZJ703-2S12N(1000gpm) footprint is only 2403x1883x2195mm, but same treating capacity, Brandt Cobra 16/2 Mud Conditioner dimension is 2692 mm x 2032 mm x 2565 mm. For same treating capacity and function equivalent, GN mud cleaner is with the smallest size.

Desander, Desilter, Mud conditioner

GN desander, desilter have standard frame for hydrocyclones. This made our design, production high efficiently. For desander, we have standard GN1S with treating capacity 500gpm, GN2S with treating capacity 1000gpm, GN3S with treating capacity 1500gpm. For desilter, we have standard GN8N with treating capacity 500gpm, GN12N with capacity 1000gpm, GN16N with capacity 1500gpm. If you required large quantity, we can make other hydrocyclone qty according to your required treating capacity. Desander, desilter has no underflow shaker.

Also for mud cleaner, we have standard 500gpm, 1000gpm, 1500gpm mud cleaner with optional linear motion shaker or balanced elliptical motion shaker. Compared with separate desander, desilter, mud conditioner have the following advantages:

1 With larger shale shaker, can process mud better and recovery more drilling mud to save drilling cost.

2 Save space, you only need to place one machine which can do the job for 3 machines together.
