Drilling Waste Management System Features:

  1. Good Result of Water-based Mud: 6%-10% Water Content.
  2. Overwhelmingly overcomes the difficulty in disposing the waste all or disposing them effectively, which combines the technology brought from Italy with advantages of the same products abroad.
  3. Stable Performance:KOSUN Drilling Waste Management is to control the volume of water containing in the drilling mud and stabilize the liquid performance, which achieves the purpose of managing the drilling waste and recycle the drilling mud without damaging the water performance.
  4. Environmental and Economical: This cutting dryer system realizes the social value of environmental protection, maximizing the usage of drilling fluid economically.

Drilling waste management has put forward higher requirements with the constant improvement of the environmental protection requirement. It can not only be very good to solve the environmental problems, but also can do recycling to the waste of the solids control system. While drilling cutting management system maximize retains the useful mud, and it concentrated solidify after processing of drilling cuttings. That helps to reduce the destruction of the environment in oil filed worker.

In the process of oil and gas drilling, general shallow wells would use water-based mud, and deep wells would use oil-based mud, that makes conventional solids control equipment work effectively on recovery of heavy metal and stone and useful drilling fluid. However, these cutting fluids containing heavy metals and solids (presumably oil content at 12%~18%) would caused great damage on nearby vegetation, soil, groundwater and other natural environment building and human living environment if they are not managed to emissions.

KOSUN is the professional Drilling Waste Management Manufacturer and exporter. KOSUN can design and produce the Drilling Waste Management system and Drilling Waste Management equipment as requirment of customers. (Editor:Kosun Lily.Wang)

River Dredging Technological Design

The following figure is the basic River Dredging Technological Design Layout plan:

The KD-425 Slurry Treatment System consists of scalping shaker module, desanding module and desilting module. Equipped with coarse-mesh screens, the scalping shaker module is used to remove big particles. The desanding module is equipped with two desanding cyclones, and the desilting module is equipped with six desilting cyclones, and a dual-deck shaker is used as the underflow shaker for desander and desilter respectively.

The mud falls into the collecting box via scalping shaker, and then is conveyed to the desanding module through a connecting trough. The desanding module is equipped with a desander having two 18” cyclones in diameter and is capable to remove sand from the mud. The desilter with six 6” cyclones in diameter can further separate the mud as required.

1) KD-450 de-sanding module consists of coarse vibrating sieve, fine vibrating sieve, desanding cyclone, main container, mud tank and gravel pump.

2) Vibrating screen sieve angle can be adjusted, the adjustment range of -1 ° ~ +5 ° (sieve surface inclination upward positive angle).

3) Screen material for the polyurethane, the type of embedded steel frame.

4) Screen locking system for non-metallic expansion fastener locking system.

5) Desander cyclone working pressure of 0.04 ~ 0.2MPa, equipped with a pressure gauge.

6) Desander cyclone for the polyurethane material.

7) Feed pressure can be adjusted by butterfly valve.

8) Desander with a pump for the gravel pump.

9) Rinse the screen with a jet nozzle with a small rotation angle. The pump is owned by the customer.

10) Due to the high liquid pressure, all critical wear areas that may be corroded are welded with additional protective plates or increase the thickness of the pipe wall.

Centrifugal separation system:

1) Centrifugal separation system consists of a basket filter, two centrifuge feed screw pump, two horizontal centrifuges and water treatment tank.

2) centrifugal separation system using modular design and equipped with a walkway, vertical ladder and guardrail,it is safe for Maintenance staff to maintenance operation.

Tailings Management Process Design

In recent years,protecting the environment is becoming more and more important to the whole human beings.How to properly management the tailings(gold mine tailings,coal mine tailings,mine tailings, copper mine tailings,telluride mine tailings) has been a primary problem for the mining business with the government increased environmental protection efforts.(Tailings Management Process Design)

tailings management process design

The following is the commonly tailings management process design and method:

After the tailings went into the tailings pool, using the pump made it into the mud cleaner, this divided into two parts:

1. The underflow from the desilter falls onto filter press or fine-screen shaker for dewatering, and dried solids are recycled.

2. The overflow from the desilter is separated by centrifuge into liquid and solids, and the liquid is recycled and the solids are dried for recycling.

Solids Control Equipment-KOSUN

-DC Series Decanter Centrifuge: is used to separate suspended solids ≥2μm in diameter and treat the drilling mud and fluids. It is especially effective when used in oilfield service industry, industrial service industry and especially in environmentally sensitive areas. This type of centrifuge is high in recovery rate, effective in solids control and remarkable in the reduction of cost spent on drilling mud resupplying and management. It is a very sophisticated dynamic balancing machine, able to operate stably with the whirling speed ranging from 0 to 3900 and generate centrifugal force of 3000G.

-D Series Decanter Centrifuge: is used in separating suspension of solids phase with particle ≥2μm in diameter, and can be used at Environmental Protection Industry, Chemical Industry, Food Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry,and many other related industries, and can the replacement of GEA westfalia centrifuges or Alfa Laval centrifuge.
