Recently, GN Solids Control finished the fabrication of a set of automatic Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit. The Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit is a customized design for CNPC Project. Based on GN standard design, clients ask for more smart control to realize the automatic running of the unit. The automatic Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit can minimize the manpower for operating the solidification unit, and furthermore to reduce operation cost of the project.
Below are some figures of the automatic Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit for CNPC project:
The Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit is equipped with automatic control system. PLC control system control the 3 sets feeding screw conveyor: 1 conveyer for lime feeding, 1 conveyor for absorber feeding, and a main screw conveyor for the drill cuttings transfer and feeding.
The lime feeding screw conveyer,
The mixing tank is equipped with an automatic control valve, and connected to the PLC control system. The automatic control valve can open for discharge and close for mixing automatically by the PLC direct control system. The Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit can be used for continuous solidification and fixed agitation. The 3 feeding screw conveyors ( 1 for lime feeding, 1 for absorber feeding, and 1 for the drill cuttings feeding) can be setup the feeding rate and transfer rate, then the 3 conveyers can be operated with setup rate and time to realize timing agitation and timing discharge. With the automatic PLC control system, the drill cuttings solidification unit can also realize continuous mixing and discharge.
Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit is mainly used to treat water based mud cuttings. Besides Drilling Cuttings Solidification Unit, GN Solids Control can also offer high G shale shaker, dewatering unit, high speed decanter centrifuge, etc…Furthermore, GN Solids Control offers Vertical cuttings dryer and centrifuge for oil base mud and cuttings.
GN Solids Control offers turnkey solution for all kinds of drilling mud and drill cuttings: oil base mud, water based mud and WOBM mud.
