Shale shakers are a common equipment of mud system, meanwhile it is a first and most important unit for whole mud system. shale shaker decides performance of the whole solids control system.

Working principle of shale shaker

Shale shakers separate solids from liquids by utilizing a vibrating basket, which is outfitted with specially designed and sized screens. Shakers are considered the most important tool for removing drilled solids. These units remove the majority of drilled solids generated during the typical drilling process. Shale shakers typically generate between five to over eight G-forces of energy for removing solids from the mud system.


Working location of shale shaker

Shakers are positioned after the mud/gas separator and gumbo equipment (if utilized) and before any other solids removal equipment. Rigs may employ any number of shale shakers, depending on the specific drilling parameters of the well. Typically, several shakers are utilized for normal drilling operations. Additional shakers are added in response to a specific well program.

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 cotrol of oil gas well drilling for rig.

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.


Shale shakers and mud cleaners are respectively the second and third stage solid control equipment of drilling mud circulating system. DC Solid control is a professional manufacturer of mud equipment for many years. 80% of business is internation relationship.

Shale shakers and mud cleaners are very common in solids control system that do solids separation job from the first to forth stage. The shale shaker is located at the very beginning of the mud recycling system for primary solids control; the coarse cuttings could be removed by the shale shaker. While after treated by the shale shaker, the drilling fluids would be transferred to the mud cleaner for further treatment.
