In February 2019, GN Solids Control began the manufacturing of its first automatic mud tank cleaning system for a customer in America, a significant moment for China manufacturer of solids control equipment in oil and gas drilling.

Mud tanks cleaning has been a tedious and labor intensive work. Whenever a drilling rig changes to a new kind of mud, or there is too much deposition of expensive barite on the bottom of mud tank, cleaning work has to be performed. Workers with heavy equipment need to come into the refined space of a mud tank to clean mud residuals with high pressure chemical solution spray, exposing themselves to the dangerous environment.

GN Solids Control’s automatic tank cleaning system can bring this high risky high cost work to an end.

Using its mature sub systems, GN Solids Control’s automatic tank cleaning system can automatically finish mud tank cleaning work.

Chemical solution is prepared in the dosing tank with dosing pump. An automatic mixer will add chemical solution automatically to the buffer tank.

Buffer tank provides chemical solutions to booster pump, which pressurizes the solution and send it to automatic tank cleaner.

Automatic tank cleaner scans the inside of mud tank at preset scanning patter, hitting each and every spot of mud tank inner shell to kick out mud contaminant. It takes about 15 minutes to finish a complete scanning cycle.

A powerful suction pump will collect dirty solution, including deposited barite, from the bottom of mud tank, and transfer it to clarifier.

Specially designed clarifier set the solids in the liquid very quickly. While solids accumulated at the special shaped bottom of clarifier being pumped out by a membrane pump, clear solution on top of the clarifier will overflow to the buffer tank, being ready for the next cleaning cycle.

Automatic tank cleaning system by GN Solids Control features:

  • High efficiency. A mud tank can be cleaned in a matte of hours
  • Fully automatic: no operator interference is necessary
  • Much less risky: human entrance into dangerous environment is minimized;
  • Much less costly: only one operator is needed and human cost is cut tremendously.
