Drill solids are the main contaminant of all drilling fluids and therefore their control is of the utmost importance. There are 3 main ways of controlling solids:

• Dilution

• Mechanical removal

• Gravity Settling

shale shaker for solids control

I ever saw in the water well drilling site in Mongolia that they do not use any solids control equipments but only dig several mud pits, by this way, it is very low efficiency and Environmental Pollution.

Solids control system is a way for mechanical removal the drill solids. Mainly it includes screen devices & Centrifugal Separation Devices. Screen devices is the most important equipment called shale shaker. In the future of solids control system, shale shaker will become the only solids control equipment which will be used instead of desander, desilter, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge by improvement of its design. At present, linear motion shale shaker is the most popular vibration mode shale shaker.

But the arrangement of vibration motor various by different shale shaker manufacturer. Sometimes it is vertical installed, sometimes it is horizontal installed, it doesnot mean that horizontal installed shale shaker must be balanced elliptical motion shale shaker, it might be linear motion shaker.

By adjusting the shaker deck angle during operation and adopting different API mesh size screens, the separation performance of shale shaker can be very different, but usually we do not use deck angle

GN owns 6 model of shale shakers, including mini shaker GNZS752, linear motion shale shaker GNZS852, GNZS703, GNZS853, double deck shale shaker GNZS703D, Hi-G shaker GNZS853HG, welcome to inquiry us if you need shale shaker for solids control.
