Types of Drilling Fluids Shale Shaker

Types of Drilling Fluids Shale Shaker:

1) Linear motion shale shaker. It is the most common shaker model for oil and gas drilling solids control system;

2) Balanced elliptical motion shale shaker. It is not recommended for oil and gas drilling since the flow capacity is big. If the mud flow is not equal, the motion of shaker will be changed. And performance will not be good. Mostly, professional users prefer linear motion for wide application.

Functions of Solids Control Equipment-Shale Shaker

Shale shaker is the first stage separation equipment for oilfield drilling mud cleaning system. It utilizes vibrating motor to generate vibrating strength. The vibrating strength drives the drilling mud to go through the shale shaker. When the drilling mud goes through the shale shaker screen, clean mud will filter into mud tank. Not allowable bigger solids will pass the screen surface and be discharged.

Separation Size of Solids Control Equipment – Shale Shaker

The separation size of shale shaker depends on shale shaker screen size. We call it API size or mesh size. The API defers from API 20 to API 325 per API RP13 standard.Through changing different API size shale shaker screen, the shale shaker can separate solids size min. above 40μm (at API 325 shaker screen).If you do not need to separate so fine solids, you can choose more fine shaker screen, like 800μm.The common screen API size for shale shaker is API60, API80, API100, API140, API160. Customer can choose the suitable size per drilling mud condition.

AWD Angle Adjustment System for KOSUN Shale Shaker

KOSUN AWD angle adjustment system for shale shaker is a patented design. It is synchronized change for both sides. You can adjust from any side, the angle change is the same for both sides.

KOSUN has options for AWD angle adjustment: Left side of the drilling shale shaker is a small motor for automatic control. And there is control for the small motor on shale shaker control panel. Right side of the shaker utilizes tools for angle adjustment. KOSUN will offer tools together with the shaker. Customer can choose any way to change the angle.
