GN Solids Control, one the major manufacturers of equipment for solids control, separation and conveying, recently shipped solids removal unit for diamond drilling in Chile.
Diamond drilling, by its name, it the exploration process for expensive minerals such as diamond. It is quite similar to the exploration process of oil and gas reserves, while for oil and gas exploration, the drilling process can be long and equipment involved can be comprehensive even though such activities happen in remote area. A lot of logistic vehicles are involved.
For diamond drilling, however, the activity can not as luxury as the oil and gas drilling because of the features of shallow formation which contains rare minerals, and the relative small scale of reserves for such properties. However such features also bring an advantage for diamond drilling, flexibility. In this kind of exploration process, the drilling rigs are usually small, and the auxiliary equipment is light as well.
Whether the equipment is suitable for diamond drilling can be demonstrated on its mobility, measured by its adaptability to be carried around by helicopter. This requires that the equipment should weight no more than 2 tons.
This system includes one GNZS752 shale shaker, one GNLW223 decanter centrifuge, the tank, GNSB3X2, generator and mud mixing hopper. These equipment carry the feature of the equipment by GN Solids Control – high quality and highly reliable.
For instance, GNZS752 shares the same feature of other shakers by GN Solids Control, Saturday, high performance and super reliability. This exactly what is needed in diamond drilling.
So is the decanter centrifuge, GNLW223. This is a 9” decanter centrifuge, with 6m3/h processing capability. This is an equipment proven by extensive field application for its performance and reliability. Nobody hopes to have a failed shaker or decanter centrifuge in a remote area deep into the mountains.
