See the picture below, it is a mud hopper. Its function is to mix bentonite ,polymer. Usually it is powered by a centrifugal pump for mixing.
Working principe: Dry materials are added through the mud hopper to provide dispersion, rapid hydration and uniform mixing. Liquids are sometimes fed into the mud by a hose placed in the hopper. centrifugal pump that flows the mud at high velocity through a venturi nozzle (jet) below the conical-shaped hopper.
To combine the mud hopper with centrifugal pump, we called it jet mixing unit.
This is a drilling mud tank system designed and produced by GN solids control for Australia clients. It is used for horizontal directional drilling, 1400gpm treating capacity. We can also produce mud tank system with 200gpm, 350gpm, 500gpm, 1000gpm. After the mud tank system arrived at client’s site, GN engineer will fly to Australia for installation and commissioning, and the service is for free. We have 12 month guarantee for our equipment’s quality or 18 month after B/L date, whichever comes first.
GN Vertical Cutting Dryer is a innovative design which fit for Oil based drilling waste management.Drilling cuttings from the primary solids control equipments like shale shakers,mud cleaners which is picked up by s Auger(Screw) conveyor and transfer to feeder of the vertical cutting dryer.
Discription of GN Vertical Cutting Dryer
The GN Vertical Cutting Dryer uses centrifugal force to dry drilled solids in oil or synthetic base fluids. A stainless steel screen bowl traps “wet” solids and accelerates them up 900RPM with G force up to 420. Liquid is forced through the screen bowl openings, while “dry” solids are extracted by the angled flights attached to the cone, which rotate slightly slower than the bowl. Tungsten carbide protects the flights from abrasive solids and ensures long operational life. This aids in maintaining a constant gap between the scroll and screen bowl, which is crucial for proper operation. GN vertical cutting dryer has been done strict balance testing for all major rotary components to minimize vibration & noisy.It is the ideal products for oil based drilling waste management.

Besides the mud system all solids control equipments,GN also design and manufacture gas flare ignition device for oil gas drilling mud system
The gas flare ignition system is for matching mud gas separators.
