GN Centrifuge Pumps for Drilling Fluid
2018-08-04 14:50:24
Experienced in drilling fluid, drill cuttings, GN have brought higher standard on lots of products. More and more client now understand why it is important to have the screen deck of shale shaker by stainless steel, also more people understand the imporance for protecting the decanter centrifuge screw conveyor by tungsten carbide tiles.
Now GN is bringing a new old pump to the world, it is old, as it is still same design, like lots of other pump manufacturers, since everyone in drilling world only know Mission, it is a fully replacement of Mission pump. It is quite new because it is not a cheapest option, and we are not using lower quality material to cast, fabricate the pump.
Recently, GN finished the fabrication of a batch solids control equipment ordered by an oilfield service company from Venezuela. More than 10 units drilling mud centrifugal pump are part of the order and already packed waiting for delivery.
Centrifugal Pump used for feeding to cyclone unit
Normally is the solids control system, de-sander, de-silter andmud cleaner would be used to remove fine solids. Centrifugal pump could be used to suck the mud after treated by the shale shaker, and send to the de-sander and de-silter cyclone. In the meanwhile, the centrifugal pump gives the power or pressure for mud processing in cyclone.
Centrifugal Pump used for mud mixing
By connecting with mixing hopper and manifold, the centrifugal pump can be used as a mixing pump for adding mud material into the drilling mud. The pump also has shearing function for some polymers.
Centrifugal Pump used at trip tank
On rig site, when replacing the drilling pipe, drilling mud need to be pumped down to the drilling well for supplement of the pressure decreasing. The centrifugal pump is an ideal equipment to do this job.
Centrifugal Pump used as supercharge pump
The recycled drilling mud finally will be pumped back to rig top and going down to the drilling bit. Between the mud system tank and high pressure mud pump, the centrifugal pump could be used as a bridge for transferring the active drilling mud to mud pump.
If you are wondering, if GN is able to have difference pump material for different mud, or different function, not yet, we just use the best material for all the pumps, with quantity production, to eventually save clients cost.
