Shale shakers are a type of industrial equipment used to remove rock particles from drilling fluid. This drilling fluid, or mud, plays a critical role in the drilling process. Drilling fluids shale shaker is a kind of filterable mechanical separation equipment, compared with other mechanical solids control equipment, its unit cost is kinda of economic. And it is a highly efficient separation equipment which obtains solid removal amount.


Useful of shale shakers 

A shale shaker provides many benefits to drilling companies. These systems help to clean drilling fluid so that it can be reused over and over again. Without these shakers, debris in the mud could damage the drill and halt operations. Reusing drilling fluid helps to conserve limited resources, and also cuts costs for drilling outfits. Finally, shale shakers make it easy to capture rocks and other solids that have been contaminated with oil so that they can be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Structure of shale shaker.

The first class solid control equipment – shale shaker mainly composed of vibration motor, shaker screen, feeding box, pedestal and lifting system, the different size and mesh of shaker screen decides the shale shakers treating capacity and treating efficiency.

DC Solid control is one of the drilling fluids solids control equipment, and an expert in drilling waste treatment. It is the forerunner of solids control equipment in China, which is specialized in drilling fluids decanter centrifuge, desander, desilter, shale shaker and mud cleaner manufacturing.

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.

Different of oil and gas drilling filed, shale shaker had the fast growth in trenchless drilling fields, many shaker used with
hydrocyclones to combine the drilling fluid shale shaker.

1. Microtunnelling
Microtunnelling engineering is widely used in Europe and America. Microtunnelling is a kind of big well horizontal drilling, drilling
while laying pipes which is typical applicated in city construction, pipe laying or replaced traffic arteries.


Firstly digging a big diameter vertical well or well-sinking to prepare the construction. The location of well depth is lower than
equipment level, then can form a settling pond when drilling fluid returned. The drilling fluid pumped to the ground, then pumped to
a simple solid phase cleaning system by submersible pump, the system mainly made of a shale shaker installed on the small storage

2. River crossing
In order to pave pipeline in the river need directional drill a small size well. When laying big size pipe need use recombination
shale shaker, desander, desilter, centrifuge and ect. to build a strong solid control system. Drilling fluid mud cleaning equipment
can decrease drilling cost.


3. Road crossing
Paving pipe and cable often ask through the road, and can’t influence the traffic and damage the road when drilling wayside which
need drill a small size well to avoid using solid phase cleaning equipment. If drilling fluid accumulation will causing traffic jam,
drilling size is too big or roadbed is wide will using shale shaker or mud cleaner.

4. Fibre-optic(al) cable
Paving fibre-optical cable no need drill big well mouth, but usually construction in residential area or commercial zone which
production the drilling fluid and drilling solid phase must put into the special device, this time, solid control system only include
a small tank, a pump box and a shale shaker.

Shale shaker is a general term  for a vibrating device used to screen solids from a circulating drilling fluid. Many configuration have been used, including:

A square or rectangular screening area with drilling fluid flow down the length.
Revolving, nonvibrating, cylindrical screens with longitudinal flow down the center axis.
Circular screens with flow from the center to the outside.


The majority of shale shakers flow the drilling fluid over a rectangular screening surface. Larger solids are removed at the discharge end, with the smaller solids and drilling fluid passing through the screen into the active system. All drilled solids above 74 microns are considered especially undesirable in any drilling fluid.

Shale shakers are the most important and easiest to use solids removal equipment. In most cases, they are highly cost-effective. However, if shale shakers are used incorectly. However, the remaining solids removal equipment will not perform properly.

A shale shaker can be used in all drilling applications where liquid is used as the drilling fluid. Screen selection is controlled by the circulation rate, shaker design and drilling fluid properties.

DC Solid control uses the latest drying shaker technology in its drilling waste management and solids control applications, including shakers with two variable-speed motors that create linear or balanced elliptical motion at all points on the shaker basket. This maximizes solids conveyance and liquid throughput and reduces the fluid retention on cuttings.

We all known, Mi-swaco Mongoose series shale shaker is widely used in all over the word. But I think the Mongoose Pro shale shaker is more advanced than the MEERKAT PT shale shaker.

Meerkat PT

MEERKAT shale shaker

MEERKAT PT shale shaker is the dual motion shale shaker which combined linear and balanced elliptical motion technology for the ultimate in solids removal efficiency. The advanced MEERAKT PT shaker incorporates a 0.6-hp vibrator motor that allows it to perform at an unparalleled level.

As drilling conditions change, the MEERKAT PT dual-motion shaker can be adjusted instantly by simply flipping a switch on the control box. This switch instantly reconfigures the shaker from linear to balanced elliptical motion without having to suspend or shut down operations.

Mongoose Pro

Mongoose Pro shale shaker

The new generation MONGOOSE PRO shale shaker combines balanced and progressive elliptical motion, enabling operators to switch motion “on the fly” as drilling conditions change. Balanced elliptical motion manages high volume solids and progressive elliptical produces dryer cuttings. Operators can change the type of motion required to either handle high volume or produce dryer cuttings, as drilling conditions dictate. With the MONGOOSE PRO shale shaker, nonproductive time lost to changing out shakers to meet drilling conditions is no longer an issue.

As the progress of DC Solid control process technology and absorb abroad and domestic advanced technology, DC Solid control have already successful develop the dual motion shale shaker which combination of linear motion and elliptical motion shale shaker whose model is DCS/PTS753. And this year our more advanced shale shaker will meeting with you which is the combination of balanced motion and progressive elliptical motion. Please focus my blog update.

Mi-Swaco Mongoose shaker is a dual-motion shaker combined linear and balanced elliptical motion technology for the ultimate in solids removal efficiency. As drilling conditions change, the dual-motion shaker can be adjusted instantly by simply flipping a switch on the control box.

The dual-motor Mongoose linear motion shaker is especially effective while drilling top-hole sections where heavy, high-volume solids are usually encountered. In these intervals, shakers need to generate high G-forces to effectively move dense solids across the screens.Following the requirements of drilling, DC Solid control absord abroad advanced technology of Mongoose shakers and combined ourselves design to develop a new type shaker



DC Solid control DCS585-4 shale shaker is same like Mongoose shaker, and all have 4 pannel screens, and the screen size is same. DCS585-4 Shaker with the large treating capacity(130m3/h, 572GPM). And screens are all steel frame which are convenient to install and change. But only one difference between Mongoose shaker and DCS575-4, it is the movement locus, as we all known, Mongoose shaker is the dual motion( linear motion+ balanced motion), and DCS584-4 shale shaker is linear motion.

If you have interest with dual motion of DCS585-4 shaker, please tell me, that we can design and manufacture the dual motion DCS585-4 shale shaker that will be our new design and progress.
