Perfect design of Shale shaker for solids control system


Shale shaker for solids control are devices that remove drill cuttings from the drilling fluid while circulating and drilling. There are many different designs and research into the best design is constantly ongoing since solids control is vital in keeping down costs associated with the drilling fluid.


The basic design consists of large, flat sheets of wire mesh screens or sieves of various mesh sizes that shakes or vibrates the drill cuttings, commonly shale shaker, across and off of the screens as the drilling fluid flows through them and back into the drilling fluids processing system, often called a mud system. This separates the drill cuttings, often called solids, from the drilling fluid so that it can be recirculated back down the well bore. In oilfield industry, linear motion shale shaker are widely used for drilling mud solids control of oil gas well drilling for rig.


DC Machinery shale shaker consists of three (or four) screens and two vibration motors. It features handle angle adjusting while drilling to gain angle adjusted from -1°to+5° without operation stop.


DC shale shaker can separate the cuttings effectively due to the special structure and design. Fix the vibration motor on screen frame by strong support bar and situate it on screen bed.  Using base frame, the vibration motor can affect the vibration force (G-force)on screen cloth directly. Avoid the shaking effects on screen basket by isolation mounting. The screen bed is raised lightly for better to tension the screen cloth.  Longer life and perfect performance can be combined using this way.
