Hi-G Dryer Shaker
Hi-G dryer shaker is used to recover mud from cuttings to reduce the liquid / oil content in the cuttings to about 10% (w / w) and to recover part of the drilling mud to reduce drilling costs and reduce drilling waste Volume, reduce environmental pollution. Drying shaker screen for WBM and OBM.
Hi-G dryer shaker is the key component in solids control equipment used in drilling industry. Drilling operations use a borehole technology to penetrate deep beneath the surface to reach the fossil fuel, in this pursuit the mud-loggers first need to do a sampling to ascertain the depth and quality of rock they are penetrating.
The drilling bit will carry with itself drilling cuttings, essentially the rock shavings, mixed with drilling mud. The mud-loggers will extract these shavings from the drilling bit for their further analysis. As explained earlier in the article, the drilling fluid is quite expensive so it is imperative for the operators to restore the drilling fluid from the drilling waste . For this purpose various solid control equipments are used, among them a shale shaker is the foremost.
Hi-G dryer shaker with the help of shaker screens helps in separating the drilling cuttings from drilling fluid, and the separated drilling fluid is channeled to a separate container for further processing and treatment. The dried solid, i.e. drilling cuttings are conveyed to a separate container for further treatment and disposal.
One very important factor in the solid control system is its contribution for environmental balance. If a solid control system is not efficient enough, it is likely that the drill cuttings will still carry some amount of drilling fluid that contains chemicals which could be really harmful for the environment and cause contamination of soil or ground water. The drilling industry follows strict rules on drilling waste management for the sake of environmental impact.
In conclusion, drying shaker’s main function is to filter the drilling waste with the help of an effective shaker screen and as a result help in economy of overall drilling operations and environmental prevention.
