Drilling fluids shale shaker, the new development of OGEM Solids Control, is an ideal primary solids control equipment for drilling mud circulating system and is characteristic by high performance and easy maintenance.Oil field drilling mud shale shaker mainly consists of explosion-proof vibrating motor, screens, explosion-proof controller, feeder and mechanical lifting system.
Types of Shale Shaker:
1) Linear motion shale shaker. It is the most common shaker model for oil and gas drilling solids control system;
2) Balanced elliptical motion shale shaker. It is not recommended for oil and gas drilling since the flow capacity is big. If the mud flow is not equal, the motion of shaker will be changed. And performance will not be good. Mostly, professional users prefer linear motion for wide application.
Separation Size of Solids Control Equipment – Shale Shaker
The separation size of shale shaker depends on shaker screen size. We call it API size or mesh size. The API defers from API 20 to API 325 per API RP13 standard.
Through changing different API size shaker screen, the shale shaker can separate solids size min. above 40μm (at API 325 shaker screen).
If you do not need to separate so fine solids, you can choose more fine shaker screen, like 800μm.
The common screen API size for shale shaker is API60, API80, API100, API140, API160. Customer can choose the suitable size per drilling mud condition.
