Do you know the double shale shaker ?

Shale shaker is the first stage solids control equipment in drilling fluids processing system,also known as key solids control equipment in drilling mud solids control system. The drilling fluids shale shaker can remove cuttings above 75μm brought from the drilling well to leave the liquid with smaller particles into the drilling fluid circulation mud tanks, which will flow into next stage drilling fluids solids control equipment to be treated.

Double shale shakers
Oilfield shale shakers like derrick shaker and brandt shaker are ordinarily consist of skid, vibration isolation fellow member, screen, screen basket, back again tank ( or referred to as mud feeder), vibration engine, and many others. No issue it is linear movement shale shaker, or ellipse shaker. ?The drilling fluids flows straight into the back tank via the flow line right after the mud arrives out of the surface area of the properly. The solids that precipitates in the back again tank would be discharged via the bottom hole, and drilling fluids would flow onto the screen surface area. The solids that are larger than the meshes would be divided and threw out of the shale shaker via other finish of screen. And the fluids with scaled-down component would go via the meshes and key in the mud tank for even more separation.

Shale shaker framework

The screen of shale shaker can be pieces of panels, or a single integrated panel. The angle of the screen can be horizontal, or with a specific angle, or adjustable inside of an angle variety, like -1° ~ +5° or -3° ~ +6°. The screen can be a single layer, or double layers. The engineer should select the correct kind of shale shakers in accordance to the geological and drilling fluids needs. When the drilling fluids amount is big, double or triple shale shakers could be operated, this kind of the purification capability of the linear motion shale shaker would be far better enhanced.

It will bring out the particles and be lead to the mud tank

Solids control system is an indispensible part for every drilling rig. But many newcomers of drilling industry have no idea of the functions of Solids control equipment.

Both of these make the Solids control equipment so necessary and important, because Solids control equipment can provide a circulation system for drilling mud. After the new compounded mud used for the lubrication of the drill bit, it will bring out the particles and be lead to the mud tank,shale shakerdesanderdesiltercentrifuge and some other components of drilling Solids system, through which even very small particles can be separated. And then the mud will be filled with some water or added with some kinds of chemicals, through which the mud can be filled back to well again and perform just as new mud. This kind of circulation can provide a sustainable usage of drilling mud, which can save much for the operators. With this system, operators don’t need to purchase large quantity of mud and also don’t need to be worried about the penalties or lawsuits from the environmental departments of the countries where oilfields located. Because the Solids control system can reduce the pollution of environment in a very low level.

Environment protection and cost saving are the two main functions of Solid control system during drilling. And because of these functions, so many Solids control equipment manufacturers are focusing on this area and devoting themselves to improve the technology of the system.

Drilling Mud Solids Control Equipment–Screen

How to choose right drilling mud solids control equipment?

Screen, shaker screen

Screen surface: Usually,larger contact area screen will have better treating capacity,the more screen surface area you have means more volume that you can clean.So the vavy screen is better than plan screen;the larger area plan screen is better than small area plan screen.

Screen selection: Mesh size of screens is measured by the number of holes per square inch on the screen. Different mesh sizes control the size of the cuttings that you want to remove. The same mesh size will not work in all drilling conditions. Sizes will vary depending on the size of the cuttings and the type of formations you are cleaning.

Usually,the if the mud is water basic,and the slurry density is 1.2g/cm³,viscosity 45s,the screen size should be 40mesh for drilling mud shale shaker; 120-150mesh screen for mud cleaner.

Sure,we can do it as per client’s requirements.
