Functions of Solid Control Equipment – Balanced Elliptical Motion Shaker

Balanced Elliptical Motion Shaker

Balanced Elliptical Motion Shaker is a key component of the solid  control equipment for the drilling industry. Drilling operations use drilling techniques to penetrate deep into the surface to achieve fossil fuels, and in this quest, the mudstone machine first needs to be sampled to determine the depth and quality of the rock it penetrates. In the oil field excavation, assuming that the offshore site, the drilling will be completed with the help of the rig.

The drill bit itself will carry cuttings, which are basically shredded with drilling mud. The mud collector will extract these shavings from the drill for further analysis. As mentioned earlier in the article, the drilling fluid is very expensive, so the operator must recover the drilling fluid from the drilling waste . To this end, the use of various solid control devices, where the shale oscillator is the most important.

The vibrating screen with a vibrating   screen helps to separate the cuttings from the drilling fluid and direct the separated drilling fluid to a separate container for further processing and handling. The dried solids, i.e., the drilling chips, are transported to a separate container for further processing and disposal.

A very important factor in solid control systems is its contribution to environmental balance. If the efficiency of the solid control system is not high enough, the cuttings are likely to carry some drilling fluids containing chemical substances that may be harmful to the environment and cause contamination of the soil or groundwater. For environmental reasons, the drilling industry follows the strict rules for drilling waste treatment .

All in all, the main function of the shale shaker is to filter the drilling waste through an effective shaker screen shield, thus contributing to the overall drilling operations and the economy of environmental precautions.

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 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  shale 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.

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.

What Are Functions of The Drilling Fluids Dryer Shaker?

Dryer Shaker

Drilling fluids are used while drilling holes on the surface of the earth for oil, natural gas and even for water wells. The different types of drilling fluids that are used are water, water based muds (mixture of water and clay or other chemicals), oil or synthetic oil.

The advantages of using drilling fluids are;
– Due to the continuous use of machines for long time, the machine get heated. These fluids helps in keeping the drilling machine cool.
– As there is continuous contact between the drill pipes and the walls of the holes, heat may be generated due to friction. Drilling fluids, especially oil based fluids provides lubrication to the drill pipes.
– Keeps the machine clean.
– Maintains pressure on formation fluids (naturally occurring fluids).

This drilling fluids are poured inside the hole with different flow rate and pressure. These fluids then collect the cuttings of rocks from the hole and are then forced out of the hole by a pump. This mixture is then passed through a shale shaker.

A shale shaker is an equipment that removes large solids that are mixed with the drilling fluids, drilling waste , so that the fluids can be reused. These shale shakers not only improve the efficiency but also is very important from the cost cutting point of view. The basic parts of a shale shaker are the base of the shaker called Hopper, a feeder where the mixture of fluid and solid is collected, a screen and a vibrator.

Drilling fluids dryer shaker  is a vibrating equipment that uses a Shaker Screen (a mesh like structure supported on a frame) to separate the mixture. The vibratory motion may either be linear, elliptical or circular. The efficiency of a shale shaker also depends upon the vibration speed and the amplitude and frequency of the shale shakers .

The main functions of  drilling fluids dryer shaker is to make the drilling fluids reusable by separating the solids that are mixed with it.

Drilling Fluids Dryer Shaker Function

Drilling Fluids Dryer Shaker

Drilling fluids dryer shaker is the use of special two vibration motor to do the excitation source, so that the material on the screen surface, while straight forward. Through the sieve screen is relatively low, through the continuous nozzle to skip the completion of the classification of materials, is widely used in the drilling industry.

All drilling operations require drilling fluids in some form. The main function of a shale shaker is to separate the drilling solid from a circulatory system. A shale shaker is essentially an equipment to filter the drilling waste obtained during the drilling operation.

Drilling Fluids Dryer Shaker

As the foremost part of solid control system, the efficiency of a shale shaker determines the performance of rest of the equipments. The more cuttings they remove from the circulation, the active system will receive more fluid. To achieve this however, the solids captured in the shaker screen needs to be constantly conveyed as to make room for more solid waste for filtering process. The drilling fluid will pass through the screen and be caught in a mud tank.

This filtering through the shaker screen is done with the help of vibration force that allows the fluid to pass through the screen mesh more efficiently and leaves the solids to be discharged further.

While a number of factors will determine the performance and quality of screening process, including the external factors such as temperature and viscosity of the drilling waste, the size of the cuttings, etc.

The linear motion shale shaker is a widely popular type of shale shaker since its introduction in early 1980s. And with latest developments in shaker screen design the process filtering the drilling fluid from drilling waste and removing the drilling solids has become far more feasible than it was originally there in earlier models of shale shakers .

The main function of the drilling fluids dryer shaker is to increase the flow of drilling fluid through shaker screen into the mud tank and discharge the drilling cuttings or drilling solid for further disposal. By eliminating the drilling fluids in dried out condition they are easier to be disposed as per environmental requirement and leave a less harmful impact on environment if there is less quantity of harmful chemicals in form of drilling fluid is present on them before disposal.

So make sure that the shaker screen is big enough to conduct screening drilling mud which always think 2:1 rate for the length to width of the screen is the best design. Thus improving shaker screen will facilitate better working of it.

Size of shaker screens matters too! When a bigger size shaker screen is used in shale shaker it not only increases the vibration strength and amplitude but also improves the hitting force and shearing force reacted by shale shaker screen to drilling mud and decreasing adhesive force between solid particles. Meanwhile, this measure is good at avoiding block of the screen to some extent, realizing drilling mud shearing and separation.

Basket angling mechanism-proper angling control the drilling mud flowing speed. Generally, big angle is faster than that of small angle. Although this practice is with big volume of shale shaker, it really does low efficiency. So, according to experience, it’s fine to keep cutting fluids speed <0.6m/S and 15 degrees for the screen.

Adding many layers screens to shale shaker- different particles are resent with different sizes thus to eliminate these multi-layer screen it can be used.  Setting several layers of screen with bigger mesh form low to upper screens help to improve the shaking screen efficiency.

Proper cleansing and maintenance of it- If cleaned by brushes or sticks it can lead to damage of the screen. It is must to use proper cleansing solutions . Never use water with an oil or synthetic based mud. For maintenance of the shaker ensure the shaker components are in good order; rubber supports, tensioning mounts etc.
