The Cowboy Sandbuster is a tank that will hold up to 275 barrels of fluid. It has four total compartments to separate the solids. The fourth compartment is the largest, holding up to 137 barrels of fluid. That fluid is then circulated to the settling tanks. The other three compartments have mud guns, or jet, along the V-shaped walls that will keep the solids pushed to the center; in these compartments, we also have a suction line in the center of the tank that circulates back to our shaker box. The fluid from the shaker box flows into the shaker to keep the tank clean. Our GN Solids Shaker can move 1500 GPM and 25 PPG. The shaker has a 5-foot trough at the end of it to move solids out of the way. The solids that fall past the trough are very dry. We have a vertical Gas Buster that sits above our tank and shaker. The Gas Buster is lowered and raised hydraulically. If the hydraulics have problems, we can manually lift them with a forklift.

The Gas Buster, rated at 350 PSI, can hold 50 barrels of fluid and flow 29 barrels per minute. We have four diverse ways to flow from our Gas Buster to the Shaker Box or Tank. We can close two different valves and move directly to the tank. We do this if we need to work on the shaker, or to help control the shaker box flow. Fluid is always trapped in the gas buster, so gas can flow through the top to vent or flare. The Gas Buster has two 3-inch 1502 inlets with 2-inch plugs at the end of the 1502 iron. The Gas Buster has a secondary 2-inch plate on the side in case of a washout. The Gas Buster has an internal 2-inch site glass to monitor fluid. The Gas Buster can flow 60 million MMCF of gas through the flow lines leading to Flare Stack.
