Shale Shaker

Shale Shaker

Solid Control Equipment

Linear Motion Shale Shaker/Drying Shaker/Mud system

Product Introduction

Shale Shaker is the first stage solids control equipment in drilling fluids recycling system on a drilling rig, and are used to remove large solids/cuttings from the drilling fluid/mud. The designs of drilling mud buffer box on shale shaker have back type and top type for option, which makes it separately suitable petroleum drilling and HDD.

In significant measure, the performance of shale shaker decides the working efficiency of whole solids control system. Besides single shale shaker, Landa can also offer tandem shakers and triplicate shakers on single skid as requested to customers requirements and also the connecting manifold and mud distributor.

Working principles

A wire-cloth screen vibrates while the drilling fluid flows on top of it. The liquid phase of the mud and solids smaller than the wire mesh pass through the screen, while larger solids are retained on the screen and eventually fall off the back of the device and are discarded. Obviously, smaller openings in the screen clean more solids from the whole mud, but there is a corresponding decrease in flow rate per unit area of wire cloth. Hence, the drilling crew should seek to run the screens (as the wire cloth is called), as fine as possible, without dumping whole mud off the back of the shaker. Where it was once common for drilling rigs to have only one or two shale shakers, modern high-efficiency rigs are often fitted with four or more shakers, thus giving more area of wire cloth to use, and giving the crew the flexibility to run increasingly fine screens.
