Screw Conveyors and Screw Pumps for African Drilling Waste Management Company

In a recent project, GN Solids Control has provided to an old client from Africa a serious of equipment. Those equipment are to be used for drilling waste management projects. They are kind of customized models including following:

2021.9.6a Screw Conveyor

1. 10 sets Variable Speed Screw Conveyor: 7x GNSC12B-12V and 3x GNSC12B-24V. Screw conveyors are quite widely used for transferring materials in a drilling rig system or in a drilling waste management system, or in both, especially when the drilling cuttings waste management system is located along with rig and work at same time. For example, one screw conveyor can be located horizontally under the shale shakers for collecting the cuttings, then a tilt positioned one is used to receive the cuttings and feed to the vertical cuttings’ dryers inlet hopper. Variable speeds are important for the screw conveyors, because the mud condition is changing and capacity is varying, too. A speed adjustable solution can help to solve this problem and allow the screw conveyors to be suitable for more conditions.

2. 8 sets Variable Speed Screw Pump. Same as screw conveyors, the screw pumps are used for feeding the treating equipment, too. The screw conveyor is used for the vertical cuttings dryers, and the screw pump is used for the decanter centrifuge. GN has VFD controlled screw pump and mechanical speed adjustable screw pumps for option. For example in the positive pressurized control panel of a GNMS-363 decanter centrifuge, there are 3 VFD’s applied, respectively for centrifuge bowl, centrifuge back motor and the screw pump for feeding.

3. 10 sets Control Boxes. Control boxes are also one of core products GN provides. GN Solids Control is a certified electric control panel manufacturer for both non-explosive proof control panels and explosive proof control panels, including CNEX, ATEX and IECEX.
