Shale shakers are important components integral to the drilling process and represent the first phase of solids control in drilling industries such as coal cleaning, mining, and oil and gas production.

Shale shakers consist of vibrating sieves or screens which use force to advance the filtered mud through to the mud tank. During operation the inclination of the screen varies proportional to the flow rate of mud.

Shale shakers are intensive vibrating devices. At the first stage of mud separation, they utilize a motor to generate vibrations. Acting as a sieve, the vibrating action pushes the drilling mud through a wire cloth screen. Drilling mud that filters through the shaker screen is moved into a mud tank for additional processing if necessary. Larger solids pass over the screen surface and are discharged for later collection and disposal.

DC Solid control manufacture many types shale shakers for clients choose. If you want to choose lower price and high quality shale shaker, please contact DC Solid control at once.

A shale shaker is a vibrating screen or sieve that strains cuttings out of the mud before the mud is pumped back down into the borehole. Cuttings are processed through a series of shale shakers with sequentially finer mesh sizes, designed to remove progressively smaller drill cuttings.

To be as a cost-effective shale shaker manufacturer. DC Solid control has many types of environmental shale shakers for your choose. Below is the features of our shale shakers.

High G drying shaker is designed for drilling cutting’s drying. It can dry the drilling cutting to well delivery condition and does not add any chemicals. The drilling cuttings from solids control shale shaker, then transfered to dry shaker by auger conveyor. The dried cutting was transported away and the water was transfered to decanter centrifuge to second treatment.

The shale shakers produced by DC Machinery have the advantages of large handling capacity, screening high precision, low-energy, environmental protection and so on.  DC Machinery supplies high quality shale shakers, including Linear Motion Shale Shaker, Balanced Elliptical Motion Shale Shaker, etc.

Linear motion shale shaker is the most sales model in DC solid control company. We have balanced, elliptical balanced and dual motion shale shaker. But the linear motion shale shaker is widely received by users.

The drilling mud shale shaker is the first phase solids removal equipment used in the drilling mud circulation system. The DCS Series shale shaker are dual-motor, high frequency, linear-motion vibrating screen machines designed for fine particle separation in the oil and gas drilling mud circulation and waste slurry separation industry. It may differ in the number of screen panels and sizes according the drilling site requirement.

The purpose designed shale shaker is an absorption of advanced technologies at home and abroad. It has very strong structure and excellent separation result. Being operating in more than 35 countries and regions, the shaker is reliable and trustful for your choice.

The linear motion shale shaker is designed for oil and gas drilling, horizontal directional drilling applications, which is the first phase solids control equipment of the drilling mud system, followed by Mud Cleaner (desander, desilter), Decanter Centrifuge.

Twin or triple drilling mud shaker units with flow divider are available for oilfield operation.

Shale shaker is a most popular equipment uses in drilling mud primary solids control system. According to different processing result and mud condition, the operator may choose the shale shakers with different vibration motions. The newly designed by DC shaker can change the vibration mode from liner motion to dual motion shale shakers.

DC Solid controls’s dual motion shale shaker has 3 units vibrators, comparing with other brand dual motion shaker DC Solid control’s shaker is more cost competitive. The changing of the vibration is realized by operation on the control panel, no need to adjust the eccentric block of the vibration motors.

DC Solid control’s dual motion shale shaker has two models, one is DCPTS750-3K, this types vibration motors are 1.72kwx2+0.4kw, with 3 panels screen, has larger screen area than another type. The other model is DCPTS650-4, with 1.74kwx2+0.45kw vibration motors, and 4 panels screen.

Dual motion shale shaker has a good adaptability and outstanding advantages to fragile and clay stratum, it has the characteristics of treating capacity 20% larger than linear motion shale shaker, high drilling cuttings discharge speed,long service life of screens and small splash of drilling fluid. If you want to learn more about it, please feel free to contact me.

 

 

Dual motion shale shaker is an advanced model shale shaker in solid control system, it has two movements locus, one is linear motion and the other is elliptical balanced motion. This month, DC Solid control shipped 4 sets dual motion shale shaker to a domestic users.

DC dual motion shale shaker installed 3 motors to reach both motion application. The mud flow capacity of the dual motion shale shaker can reaches to 150 cubic meters per hour for first phase cleaning before desander. The same size linear motion shaker normally reaches 120 cubic meters per hour maximum.

2 big motor work for linear motion, 1 big motor and 1 small motor work together for elliptical motion. The control panel will fit wire connection to control which motor working.

Now many shale shakers, desanders, desilters and mud cleaners are storaged in DC warehouse. Most of the spare parts or wear parts are also storaged here. DC experienced service engineers can also be sent out for commissioning and after sales service.

The first line of defense for a properly designed solids control system has been and will continue to be, the shale shaker. Without proper screening of the drilling fluid during this initial removal step, reduced efficiency and effectiveness of all downstream solids control equipment in the system is assured. The downstream hydrocyclones will simply be overloaded beyond their designed capacity.

Because of their greater efficiency & complexity the use of finer mesh screens is essential. This requires more attention than the standard scalping shale shaker screen.

Besides periodic lubrication, fine screen use requires the following care:

1. Wash down screens with power washer regularly

2. Check screens for tear or rips

3. Make sure screens are properly mounted

4. Make sure shale shaker is at proper angle

5. Check wiring or a regular basis high speed shakers tend to wear through wiring insulation

In addition, frequent checks must be made for plugging or blinding screens. The shaker angle can be increased or decreased to help eliminate this problem. For blinding screens a more coarse or finer screen may be installed to help solve the problem.

Remember your shale shaker is your first line of defense in your solids control system, Choose a shale shaker that is correct for your application and have rig personnel learn to use it correctly.

Shale shakers typically consist of large, flat sheets of wire mesh screens or sieves of various mesh sizes that shake or vibrate the drill cuttings, commonly shale, across and off of the screens as the drilling fluid (mud) flows through them and back into the drilling fluid system.

This separates the solid drill cuttings from the fluid so that it can be recirculated back down the wellbore. In oilfield industry, linear motion shale shakers are widely used.

Screen panels play a major role by removing particles larger than the mesh size. Screen selection is critical since shaking is the primary stage in the removal of solids.

Improper shaker screen selection can lead to de-blinding, loss of drilling fluids, premature pump part failures, overloading of other solids removal equipment within the mud systems, decreased service life , reduced flow rate capacity, and serious problems in the wellbore.
