Shale shaker is used to separate drilling cuttings (mud solids) for the first phase of cleaning a whole solids control system.Shale shaker are components of solids control equipment used in many industries, such as oil and gas drilling, coal bed methane( CBM ), horizontal directional drilling ( HDD ), diamond drilling, water drilling , etc.

Vibrator motors, shaker deck, shaker skid and electrical control panel are the main component for the shale shaker.

How To Choose a Shale Shaker?

  • Mud flow: The figure listed on shaker specification is based on API 40 mesh shaker screens. Different mesh of shaker screen and muddy conditions will make shaker working in different mud flow and work performance. Don’t choose shaker only as it’s marked mark mud flow, you need to choose shaker based on muddy conditions and screen mesh.
  • G force: G force will affect shaker performance, suitable G force will help shaker get better performance. Don’t believe the higher G force, the better shaker is. Too high G force may break shaker deck with short shaker working life.
  • Shaker screen area: Drilling cuttings will be separated by a shakerscreen. The screen area will affect shaker performance and mud flow. A larger shaker screen area will help shaker for higher mud flow or better separation performance.
  • Shaker screen performance: Mesh size correctness, effective screen area and screen qualityis very important. AIPU build shaker screen as per API RP 13C regulation and tested AIPU screen with compliance test report.
  • Shaker deck strength: Shaker deck will be vibrating continuously. Deck strength is very important to guarantee shaker is better operational condition and longer working life. AIPU shaker deck chooses material Q345 and heat treatment for better strength.
  • Electrical standard: Different area may require different standard like IECEX, ATEX, UL, DGMS, etc. Before order any equipment, please confirm electrical standard.
