VC-1000 Series Vertical Centrifuge

In today’s world, where the industry is evolving instantly, the need for better , lighter and easier to manage equipment is what all the customers is looking for. The VC-1000 Series Vertical Centrifugeis being designed mainly for the Oil Base Mud operations (OBM) and with the high cost of these operations there is a  need for equipment which affect the 3 main factors:
-Cost
-Environment
-Preserving the drilling fluids

In designing the VC-1000 Series Vertical Centrifuge, the main objective were developing an equipment capable of:
-improving the separation efficiency compared to the usual solid control equipment
-reducing the amount of waste volume Produced
-saving the cost and the customer budget
-An easy to use and maintain equipment were all the parts are accessible and can be cleaned and maintained
-The safety of the operators and the personnel involved in the operation

VC- 1000, THE OPTIMUM FORMULA
What is the optimum formula? The optimum formula is the price vs quality ratio which define the value of any proposed equipment. The customers have been in a continuous search for the best quality against the price they will pay for the equipment.

How this formula has been reached? The challenges for ES-KSN were creating the balance between the quality and the cost of this equipment on the customers. ES-KSN capitalized on its close and continues work with its customers in different countries/regions, to reach a balance between the quality and the production cost of this equipment.

Drilling Fluid Performs Many Important Functions

Functions of a Drilling Fluid:
The mud system in a drilling operation performs many important functions. These include:

Drilling Fluid
Drilling Fluid

-Clean beneath the bit: To maximize drilling efficiency, the drilling fluid must translate hydraulic horsepower from the main mud pumps into enough velocity to remove drill cuttings away from the face of the bit and allow the cutters to be in contact with the formation. If the cuttings are not removed, they will be ground into smaller particles and adversely affect drilling rate, mud properties, and project costs.

-Carry drilled solids from the bottom of the hole to the surface: Once cuttings are removed from beneath the bit, the fluid must transport them toward the surface faster than they can settle back toward the bottom of the hole.  Factors which influence cuttings movement are velocity, cuttings size and shape, and the fluid properties.

-Suspend cuttings when circulation is stopped: Circulation of the drilling fluid stops periodically during operations, such as when making a bit trip.  The drilling fluids must be able to suspend cuttings and weighting material while circulation is stopped, but should begin to flow easily when the pumps are switched back on.  Properties which affect cuttings suspension are the density and viscosity of the mud and the density of the solids in the mud.

-Allow removal of cuttings by the surface system.
-Control formation pressures.
-Promote borehole stability.
-Cool the bit and lubricate the drill string.
-Help support the weight of the drill string.
-Allow accurate information from the well.

Mud is the common name for drilling fluid.  While it is outside the scope of this handbook to offer a detailed discussion of drilling fluids, a brief outline of the general characteristics of drilling fluids is included to establish the basic relationships between drilling mud and solids control.  Similarly, any discussion of solids control would be incomplete without establishing an understanding of the nature of mud solids — their size, shape and composition.

Zero Discharge on Drilling Waste Management

Zero Discharge on Drilling Waste Management Operating principles:
Water-base mud cuttings enter the top hopper of vertical centrifuge and fall onto its internal separation area. The internal cone rotates at a high speed of 900RPM and generates a centrifugal force of 430G. For density difference between liquid and solids, mud is hurled out of surface of drilling cuttings and passes through screens, and solids are retained inside the screens. And then, liquid is discharged from the liquid outlet and dry solids are discharged from the bottom of equipment.

Zero Discharge on Drilling Waste Management Features & Benefits:
-Efficient solid-liquid separation. Liquid content of treated solids is up to national and industrial standards.
-Effective recovery of treated liquid for recycling in drilling solids control system.
-Greatly reduce solid discharge volume, drilling fluid cost and waste management cost.
-Meet field operation requirements on zero discharge of drilling waste.
-Rotate at a high speed of 900RPM to generate a centrifugal force of 430G and effectively separate liquid from cuttings.
-Flights coated with wear-resistant material and metal screens for longer service life.
-Intelligent pulse jet control system effectively prevents screen blockage.
-Separate oil circuit lubricating and cooling system for simple and reliable operation.
-Integrated programmable control system for safe and convenient operation.
-Feed/discharge ports can be equipped with screw conveyors to facilitate drilling cuttings conveying and continuous equipment operation.

Treatment Effects of Vertical Centrifuge:
For oil-base and synthetic-base mud: water content of solids treated by the vertical centrifuge is below 6%.
For water-base mud: water content of solids treated by the vertical centrifuge is within 5%~8%.
