Shale Shaker Working Efficiency Deterministic Factors

In the oil drilling process, The drilling fluids from the well can be transported to the mud control equipment by mud pump. As the first phase equipment of mud control, The drilling fluids shale shaker is one of the mud-water separation equipment and has the characteristics of the earliest separation, the fastest separation, economical and efficient. Shale shaker working efficiency determines the mud process efficiency of entire mud control system. so we must know what factors determine working efficiency of the drilling fluids shale shaker. There are three deterministic factors of shale shaker working efficiency.

The First Factor: Shale Shaker Mode of Vibration

There are three types vibration modes shale shaker. It is inear motion, circular motion, elliptic motion. If the center of gravity is at the vibrator, it can form the circular motion. If the center of gravity is above the vibrator, It can form circular motion. For the elliptic motion, the screen must have a slope in order to transportation of drill cuttings, but it can reduce the capacity of its screen. If the center of gravity is above and in front of the vibrator, The shaker can formed inear motion. The inear motion shale shaker has the constant speed of transportation of drill cuttings.

The Second Factor: The Amplitude and Frequency of Shale Shaker and vibrating motor

The capacity of shale shaker depends on three parameters: amplitude, mode of vibration, rotation speed of vibrating motor. The rotation speed of vibrating motor determines the vibration frequency of shale shaker. The higher of vibration frequency of shale shaker, the better of the solid phase screening. Generally, vibration frequency of the domestic high frequency shale shaker is approximately 2000 times /min.

The vibration mass and eccentricity determines amplitude of shale shaker. Amplitude is the vertical distance of the movement of shale shaker. Vibration strength is centrifugal acceleration of the vibrator. It reflects the mesh size of the force acting on the solid particles. In theory, The larger the vibration amplitude of shale shaker, the better of the removing effect. But after the vibration strength increases, The force of shale shaker is also increased. if so the expectancy shaker life can become shortened. Therefore we should considered comprehensively when designing and using.

The Third factor: Mesh and Material of Shale Shaker

Generally speaking, there are 2-4 shaker screens in shale shake. Drilling fluids must pass the first screen into a second screen, and so on. If the screen size is not suitable or be torn, the efficiency of solid-phase separation can decrease dramatically. If the screen can not be install reasonably, the screen will soon be worn or torn quickly. So when you select the screen, you must pay attention on the material of shaker sreen.

The function and classification of KOSON mud guns

KOSON mud gun relies on the high-pressure fluid flow in the mud pipeline to generate high-pressure jet impact force through the nozzle of the mud gun to flush the sediment at the bottom of the drilling mud tank to make it suspended.

The main function of the KOSON mud gun is: auxiliary mud agitator, right the corners of the mud tank, the bottom edge of the mud tank and the deposits of the suction ports of each pump are prevented from depositing, and then the agitator is used for uniform mixing. After the agitator stops running for a period of time, the agitating impeller will be buried by the deposited sediment. Before it needs to be re-run, the KOSON mud gun can reduce part of the resistance when the agitator is started, which provides a guarantee for normal operation.

KOSON mud gun is divided into high-pressure gun and low-pressure gun. Because the high-pressure mud gun is a tributary supply of drilling pump, its pressure level can reach 1~6MPa; as for the low-pressure gun, it is supplied by sand pump, and its working pressure level is 0.2 ~0.3MPa. In general, the number of KUSON mud guns should be determined according to the number of mud mixers.

Specifications for electric motors in mud agitator

The motors in the mud agitator all use explosion-proof T-frame, 3-phase 230~460V, 1150 rpm, frequency 60 Hz; or 3-phase 190~380V, 958 rpm, frequency 50 Hz. Flexible coupling for motor The joint is directly connected with the reducer. A strong steel passport is mounted above the connecting shaft.

The solid mild steel shaft is connected to the reducer with a rigid coupling. In order to adjust the height of the impeller, a keyway is opened in the lower part of the shaft. The diameter of the shaft ranges from 38.1 mm to 88.9 mm, depending on the model, and the actual length of the shaft is determined by the user.

How to calculate the size and number of mud agitators

In the equipment currently in use, it is very likely that 75% of the mud agitators are installed improperly. The reason for this situation is either not understanding the correct size determination method, or not understanding the importance of selecting the size reasonably. The reasonable stirring amount calculated by each agitator is related to the given power and impeller diameter. The relationship between the mixing range that the impeller can reach and the specific gravity of the mud and the required power can be determined by calculation.

Factors Affecting the Use Effect of Decanter Centrifuge

The decanter centrifuge is mainly composed of a rotating drum, a spiral, a differential system, a liquid level baffle, a driving system and a control system. It is a special equipment for solid-liquid separation designed for the characteristics of petroleum drilling fluids. It can complete various processes such as feeding, centrifugal sedimentation, and unloading at full speed. It is mainly used to recover barite, remove fine solids, and reduce drilling fluids. The solid content of the drilling fluid controls the density and viscosity of the drilling fluid, ensures the performance of the drilling fluid, and plays an important role in rapid drilling.

Factors Affecting the Use Effect of Decanter Centrifuge

The use effect of the decanter centrifuge is divided into adjustable factors and non-adjustable factors. Now we will explain them separately. If we understand the principle of action, we can effectively control it in use. The unadjustable mechanical factors include: drum diameter and effective length. Drum half cone angle. Pitch. Screw type. Adjustable mechanical factors are: drum speed, differential speed (difference ratio), liquid ring layer thickness, process factor.

There are many factors that affect the dewatering effect of the decanter centrifuge, and each factor affects each other. Therefore, the treatment effect is the result of the combined effects of the above-mentioned factors. The selection of the centrifuge should be carried out in accordance with the actual situation of the project, and the operating parameters should be adjusted. It should be considered comprehensively from the expected mud cake moisture content, solid content and economic efficiency required by the disposal method of the dehydrated mud cake.

There are three types of mud shale shaker motion.

In the process of oil drilling drilling fluid from internal carotid out through shale shaker, then in other solids control equipment, in the solid phase removal equipment of shale shaker is itself a filterability spate separation equipment, in the mud of a complete set of cleaning system, it has the first, the characteristics of fast drilling fluid solid phase separation, at the same time is also a kind of economic, efficient spate separation equipment.

There are three types of mud shaker motion: circular, elliptical and linear motion, the oscillator in the center of gravity, will produce circular motion; When the oscillator is above the center of gravity of the system, elliptic motion is generated. However, for elliptic motion, the screen surface must have a slope in order to utilize the conveying cuttings, but the screen capacity will be reduced. The linear motion is to put the oscillator in front of the center of gravity of the system, making the screen frame produce linear motion, thus clearing the solid phase. The vibrating screen moves in a straight line with its fixed cuttings transfer speed. The screen surface can be flat or slightly tilted.

The ES series elliptic vibrating screen of KOSUN adopts the long tube vibrating motor as the power source, the performance is superior, the structure is reasonable, the operation is stable, the life is long, the maintenance cost is low. Under the same conditions, compared with other types of shaker, drilling mud processing capacity and sand transport and discharge capacity can be greatly improved, and can effectively overcome the “screening”, “screening paste” phenomenon.

KOSUN LS series linear vibrating screen using the vibration motor excitation to cheer for the vibration source, make the material being thrown up on screen, at the same time, forward a straight line with low consumption, high output, simple structure, easy maintenance, fully closed structure, no dust overflow, and the advantages of automatic discharge, more suitable for assembly line, at the same time family newsletter QZS linear vibrating screen can also be adjusted through the AWD regulating series of solid separation effect.Linear vibrating screen has obvious advantages in the treatment of large displacement drilling fluid. In this condition, the strong excitation force output by the linear vibrating screen can quickly remove a large number of solid phases through efficient linear vibration trajectory, which can effectively remove large particles in the drilling fluid.

In the process of oil exploration and development, a large amount of waste drilling fluid will be left at the drilling site.
