In solid control equipment, shaker screen performs that key job of eliminating the solids through the screen. So it is imperative that they are prone to damage if not kept properly clean and that will naturally increase the overall project cost.

Here are some ways to keep the shaker screen clean and safe:
• If the shaker has been idle for some time, it is important that the shaker screen be cleaned before the use. To clean the shaker screen, the best way is to use water gun or water hose.
• Usage of wire brush will actually damage the mesh, so stay clear of brushes in your cleaning process.
• The shale shaker screen constantly sieves the waste material and likely to get clogged with waste material and as a result the screen holes will be blinded and hamper the process if filtration. To clean the blinded screen holes, use the water hose from back side. You could consider removing the larger particles manually, but never with a brush or stick, as the mesh of the screen is prone to be torn in the process if you use any of these.
• Make sure that the screens are not left with the drilling waste i.e. drill cuttings and mud to be dried while in the screen. This will invariably lead to a pre-mature failure of the equipment.
• Never allow any worn out rubbers to be used in the equipment, this directly lowers the performance of the equipment and damages the shaker screen.
• Do not allow any other material to be placed over the shaker screens , either in function or in storage.

With these basic cleaning procedures, you could ensure a longer life for the shaker screen.
