Shale shaker is first phase solids control equipment in drilling fluids processing system, also known as key solids control equipment in drilling mud system, shale shaker decides performance of the whole solids control system.

Shale shakers are essentially vibrating sieves that remove drill cuttings – most often shale – from a rig’s circulating drilling fluid. For drilling crews, the main operating challenge is to run the screens as finely as possible while still maintaining an efficient flow rate. It’s a difficult but important balancing act, since controlling solids in the drilling fluid is crucial for controlling costs.

When choosing the appropriate shale shaker type, the deciding criteria are the technical requirements, such as the material (drilling fluids) properties: drilling mud viscosity, velocity of flow, feeding solids size; desired product size and capacity etc, as well as the optimum investment and operating costs.

DC Solid control have 3 and 4 Panel Linear motion shale shakers meet the needs of solids separation in a large number of different industries.  To name a few, Drilling, (whether it be used in Oil and Gas as a primary or drying shaker, Water Well, or HDD), Dredging, Mining and Dewatering for waste disposal.  Our success in separating unwanted solids from fluids, as well as reclaiming valuable solids that in the past have been costly and wasteful to dispose of, has now placed DC Solid control as a noteworthy competitor in the Solids Separation World.
