Tag Archives: Shale Shaker

Dual motion shale shaker is a kind of solids control drilling mud processing equipment. Shale shaker is the 1st stage solids control equipment to pre-treat drilling mud from drilling rigs.

DC dual motion shaker is DCZKS850, the treating capacity is 600 GPM. By using two vibrators, the two running type can be adjusted easily without changing the angle of the eccentric block inside these two motors. DC dual motion shaker is more cost-effective as DC only uses two motors while most of the other suppliers are using 3 motors.

Now many shale shakers, desanders, desilters and mud cleaners are storaged in DC warehouse. DC Solids also has some decanter centrifuges, cuttings dryers as well as shaker screens in Houston. 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 importance of the screen

The combination property of the drilling fluid shale shaker reflect the sieve size is fine, using life is long and the throughput is big, this conditions are related to the structure and performance of the screen. The screen is a important part of screening task, it is the consumables in drilling fluid, the size of the hole determines the size of the solid phase particles are removed by the shale shaker. Because drilling fluid have corrosive, abrasive resistance and the high temperature,

The specification of the screen

The specification of the screen determines the sieve size, the sieve size is the size of the sieve pore which the particles can pass. Because the oilfield and the related industries learn from the foreign stander, so use the mesh representative the size of the sieve pores, it is said that the number of the sieve pores in one inch width.

For different drilling mud equipments manufacturer will hold their own model

In order to remove the smaller particles in drilling fluid, the material of the screen is the stainless steel wires of the heat treatment, the material of the ancillary shoring structure is steel plate, galvanized sheet, plastic board and ect.

shale shakers. Different type shale shaker will hold different features and superiority.

To develop both precise and accurate process control, DC conducted a battery of tests. These tests included; cure tests by varying time and temperature; bonding strength tests by testing the tensile strength of the cure screens through destructive testing; and chemical exposure tests by immersing a series of screens in chemicals characteristic of the oil & gas industry.

 

The liner motion shale shaker have the performance of the high screening precision, simple structure, less energy consumption, low cost, low noise, the using life of the screen is long, good sealing and convenient to maintain. The product is widely used chemical, food, plastic, medical, metallurgy, glass, fire-resistance, grain, fertilizer, ceramic ect. industry,

To my surprise, on the morning September 3, I went to work, I have no attention to open my email, I found a inquiry email from Italy solid control company, he said they saw our products on alibaba, they were very interesting with our company, they want the inquiry with shale shaker, I excited to shout” I have inquiry”, this is the first inquiry from my work within the three month. I had very excited, after I send a price list to him, of course this is my first order, so the price is lower compared with the same industry of other companies, the client was satisfied with my inquiry, then he sent a detailed content with shale shaker, the main content is; they want a shale shaker mating with 3000 meters well, let us gave a suggestion for him, then the detailed content was sent to our technology engineer, the engineer patient and careful design, at last fished a reasonable and reliable scheme. On September 5, we sent the scheme to the Italy client, the client thought that there are some parts were didn’t matching the link way and terrain. Then we received the need and improved the scheme, at last the client was very satisfied with our service and scheme. He hope we can established business relations each other, we also hope we can have business communication.

This order is succeed, it give me confidence and patience, I believe that efforts will be fruitful.

Now, we have already manufacture the shale shakers, this is the process of manufacture which I took the pictures in the manufacturing shop.

         

TangShan Dachuan Mechanical Equipment Co., Ltd. is a company focuses on the production, sales and after-sales maintenance service of mud cleaning  equipment of petroleum drilling (not excavation). The main products are mud vibrating screen, vacuum degasser, desander, disilter, mud cleaner, mud gas seperator, mud agitator, desander pump, shear pump, centrifugal, flare lgnition device, mix funnel, jet mud mixer, mud tank, water tank, diesel tank, etc.


 


  

Mud gas separator is a special equipment of gas cut drilling fluid, it belongs to the ordinary pressure, it is the degassing theory of ordinary pressure, but it is the primary degassing equipment of disposed the gas cutting drilling fluid, the main distinguish with vacuum degasser is; it can remove the big bubbles which the diameter is bigger than 3mm. The big bubbles are refers to the swelling gas of the most drilling fluid is full of the well, their diameter are about 3-25mm.  This big bubbles can cause well kick, even erupt the surface of turntable. The gas liquid separator is mainly depend on the effect of gravity collision to realize the liquid and gas separate, the vacuum degasser use the principle of vacuum, flocculated flow and centrifuge, the quality of processing gas of vacuum degasser is less than the liquid gas separator, but it remove the gas more thoroughly. Usually the gas is processed by the liquid gas separator also have small bubbles, after through the shale shaker, it needs enter into the vacuum degasser to conventional gas.

        

The types of liquid gas separator

1 Cover type

The bottom of vacuum degasser is closed, drilling fluid through a U type pipes to return the circulation tank. The depth of drilling fluid in the degassing tank, it can control by the depth of the U type pipes.

2 Open bottom type

The separator have not bottom, the lower parts dive into the drilling fluid, the liquid level in the tank depends on the drive depth of bottom to control, this type of separator is called the “poor children” in foreign, it explains the simplification.

Separator Main Body 800mm 1000mm 1200mm
Thruput 200~260m3/h 240~300m3/h 280~360m3/h
Inlet Pipe 5″ 5″ 5″
Outlet Pipe 8″ 8″ 10″

Overall Dimension 1900×1900×5700mm 2000×2000×5860mm 2200×2200×6634mm

The most simple and reasonable liquid gas separator is the cover types. The open bottom types is take second place, because the depth of drilling fluid is limited to the liquid level depth in circulation tank. The working pressure of liquid gas separator is equal to the frictional drag of when the free gas discharge tubes discharge.

Hydrocyclone is a kind of mechanical separation equipment with simple and easy to maintain. Separation is realized by the admission energy change into the interior barrel centrifugal force. The centrifugal force act on drilling fluid, make drilling cuttings and other solid phase separated, this is follow Joe hicks’s law. Because the drilling cutting is too fine in some strata drilling, drilling fluid shale shaker can’t remove the drilling cuttings, so must use hydrocyclone remove the most of particles. Drilling fluid shale shaker avoid the big particles enter into the hydrocyclone and led to blocking, protect the hydrocyclone.

The best separate effect of hydrocyclone is the least liquid loss, obtain the maximum drilling fluid solid phase to discharge. The small and light particles are discharged through the overflow month. The biggest effect to the performance of hydrocyclong is the diameter, cone Angle, the diameter of bottom month, the pressure of admission, the model form viscosity of admission.

1 The device is compact, the structure is simple, the price is cheap, have no movement     parts

2 The throughput is big, the range of separation is large.

3 Adjustment and operation is easy, and it is easy to maintain.

4 The ability of separation is great, in some cases, can obtain the overflow of more fine and the higher of separative efficiency.

The shortcomings of hydrocyclone

1 The power consumption is big

2 When the viscosity of the pulp, the density of solid phase and the composition of particles size are changed, the separation particle size and separation effect is changes.

3 The working condition of desander pump is greatly influenced the hydrocyclone.

4 It can’t carry out super fine separation. It can’t disposed flocculating substance

1 Solid phase total

Solid phase refers to the solventless solid in drilling fluid. Usually the solventless solid in drilling fluid use percent by volume to express. The high density drilling fluid solid phase content consist of low density solid phase and high density solid phase, but the common drilling fluid solid phase content is all the low density solid phase.

2 Liquid phase

In drilling fluid, use liquid as dispersion solid phase continuity, it is called liquid phase. Usually, water, oil, soluble salt, thinner and other produce included.

3 Low density solid phase

The low density solid phase is including commercial clay and drilling cuttings. Usually, in the solid control work, assume that the density is 2.6/cm3 or 2.65g/cm3, the actual value in the 2.0-3.0cm3 fluctuation.

4 High density solid phase

The high density solid phase improves the density of the drilling fluid, make the annulus fluid column pressure is greater than the formation pressure. The barites is a kind of high density solid phase, the barites density is recommended by American petroleum institute is bigger than 4.2/cm3.

5 Aggravate drilling fluid

The commonly known as aggravate mud, the common aggravate materials is barites, according to requirements also can use other aggravate materials, in order to keep the minimum density.

6 Drilling cuttings

Drilling cutting belongs to solid phase, it is the main pollution source of drilling fluid. It is greatly affected the performance of drilling fluid, so must make the content is stably, so have the important issues, in the process of drilling should do regular treatment to keep the content is stably of drilling cuttings.

7 The clay

The clay is mainly made of clay minerals, the form is the super fine particles, most diameters is less than 2um, it has dispersibility in water, charged sexual, ion exchange, these performance is important to drilling fluid.

8 Colloid particles

The clay diameter of solid particles is less than 2um is called particles, the material of clay particles have a big surface area. Sodium montmorillonite can shape clay suspension in water, the dispersibility of the sodium montmorillonite is good, it can improve the viscosity of drilling fluid.

9 Oil base and water base drilling fluid

The oil base drilling fluid base on oil as continuous phase, the insoluble solid phase particles is scattered to the continuity liquid phase; Water base drilling fluid base on water as continuous phase.

10 saturated brine

saturated brine is allocated by sodium chloride, the density is 1.20/cm3

 

 

Drilling fluid is classified as water base utilizing water as the liquid phase. The solid phase of any drilling fluid is either commercial solids or drilled solids. Most commercial solids such as bentonite have a relative particle size of less than one micron. The shale shaker, in various forms, has played prominent role in oilfield solids control schemes for several decades. Shakers have evolved from small, relatively simple devices capable of running only the coarsest screens to the models of today. Modern, high-performance shakers of today 。

Circulating tanks as a part of the ground cycle, there are shale shaker, vacuum degasser, deserter, desande and centrifugal on the surface of tank. The store tank is according to the need of drilling condition to allocated the different performance drilling fluid, or store drilling fluid which used for different drilling condition.

The purification process

1 level1 purification

The mud disposed in shale shaker. The allocation drilling fluid enter into the bottom well under the foundation of the drilling pump and carry drilling cuttings return the ground, through the elevated tubes enter into the shale shaker, the larger rock debris in drilling fluid are screened

2 level 2purification

When drilling fluid have gas cutting, we can use vacuum degasser remove the gas which in the drilling fluid and can recovery the density of drilling fluid, steady the drilling fluid viscosity.

3 level 3purification

The drilling fluid is disposed by the 2level purification enter into the desander through the desander feed liquid pump, the harmful sold phase which the diameter is above 40-60um is separated in desander.

4 level 4purification

The drilling fluid is disposed by the 3level purification enter into the desilter through the desilter feed liquid pump, the harmful sold phase which the diameter is above 15-40um is separated in desilter.

5level 5purification

The drilling is disposed by the 4level purification enter into the centrifugal through the centrifugal feed liquid pump, the small harmful sold phase particles are separated in centrifugal.

Usually, the 5purification is working at the same time. If it works one equipment or several equipments, the parameters of the drilling fluid can meet the work requirements, it can work one equipment or several equipments. After the purification, drilling fluid can enter into the next common drilling cycle.
