Normally, GN Solids Control recommends 4 stage separation systems for TBM or pipe jacking projects for a thorough treatment of drilling mud. In some cases, based on clients’ customized requests, GN Solids Control can also make 2 or 3 stages separation units in a compact design. For example, the GNMS-500D and GNMS-1000D are both quite popular products during the years. And recently, GN just delivered several sets of GNMS-1500D to some clients in Asia.
1. GNMS-1500D Mud Recycling System is designed and manufactured according to the needs and requirements from customer, which is appropriate for mud treating & recycling in mining industry, piling works, HDD(horizontal directional drilling) and so on.
2. The treatment capacity of this system is up to 360m³/h. This system includes 2 stages of solids control and separation. The first-stage separation is the shale shaker part of double deck shale shaker & desander.
3. The second-stage separation is the desander part of shale shaker & desander fed by a large powered centrifugal pump. Centrifugal pump gives enough power to the desander cyclones and mud is separated into liquid and solids by centrifugal force inside the cyclones.
4. Inside the catch tank, there is a device to prevent dry-run of the centrifugal pump, for mud compensation and preparation.
Function of GNMS-1500D:
During drilling, the drilling mud contains lots of sand and silt. This recycled mud is transferred to GNMS-1500D’s inlet pipe and solids phase larger than 40μm are removed by the mud recycling system. In this way, clean drilling mud is returned to the rig/pipe jacking machine.
