As a leading drilling waste management and solids control company, GN Solids America developed the first generation vertical cuttings dryer in 2011. After three years testing and research, GN Solids America announced that the latest designed second generation vertical cuttings dryer has been successfully developed and tested for drilling waste management.
Unlike the first Generation and traditional Vertical cuttings dryer, GN Solids Control has improved the Vertical cuttings dryer with a patented scraper system inside the basket screen, and a high pressure air knife system is fitted to assist in continues cleaning of the screen for the vertical cuttings dryer while working. This reduces the downtime for cleaning the vertical cuttings dryer screen. And this featured design cuttings dryer make it possible for water based drilling mud system cuttings drying which has significantly gives better drying performance than the linear motion shale shakers. The high torch completed Sun-Wheel Gear box unit ensures the second generation vertical cuttings dryer to run more reliably than the gear driving system. The VFD control system allows the vertical cuttings dryer to run at different G force and different differential speed to handle the drilling cuttings in proper conditions. The combined drilling cuttings picking up augers allow the drilling cuttings dryer to sit at a relatively lower profile and make it easier for the set up of the feeding screw conveyor.
The function of GN vertical cuttings dryer:
The drilling cuttings discharged from primary solids control equipment like shale shaker, mud cleaner, de-sander de-silter, will be picked up by a drilling cuttings auger conveyor fitted downside. A second screw conveyor will pick up the drilling cuttings from the first auger conveyor and feed to the vertical cuttings dryer.
GN Vertical cuttings dryer is used for drying oil based drilling waste cuttings, and SBM drilling cuttings. After the treatment by GN vertical cuttings dryer, the oil on the cuttings can get down to 3% to 5%. 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 drilling waste cuttings and accelerates them up 900RPM with G force up to 420. Liquid is forced through the screen bowl openings, while dry drilling cuttings 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.
The recovery oil or drilling fluids contains fine solids which need to use GN high speed decanter centrifuge to separate the solids and control the drilling mud balance to allow the drilling fluids to get back to the drilling solids control active mud tank.

Chinas leading abrasives and diamond tools online trading platform iAbrasive announces that most alumina and SiC manufacturers in China find themselves in a dilemma as a consequence of the environmental protection policies enacted by the government.
According to an investigation to the air quality of Chinas 500 large cities, it shows that only 1% of the city’s air is up to the World Health Organization’s recommended standards. On January 4, 2014, haze was listed as a health hazard for the first time by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
Currently, Chinas environmental policies extend to a broader range. As a result, abrasives factories are in trouble because they will inevitably produce waste water and exhaust gas during production, which pollute the environment. Abrasives manufacturers are faced with the unprecedented survival pressure, especially for those raw materials producers of alumina and silicon carbide.
Headquartered in Zhengzhou, iAbrasive is a communication and information platform specifically for abrasives industry. It offers domestic sellers the opportunities to present themselves to overseas buyers, as well as the accesses to the most in-depth and comprehensive information on the latest developments, trends, services and products from different areas. For abrasives purchasing and supplying information, users are available at: http://www.iabrasive.com.
