Linear Motion Shale Shaker Working Principle

Linear Motion Shale Shaker produce vibration by using inertial exciters. Linear shale shaker used  motor driven exciter, the exciter has two axes, each axis has an eccentric weight, and whirling to the opposite direction. It is also known as biaxial linear shale shaker, the two gears meshing to ensure synchronization. When two eccentric disks rotate, the centrifugal forces F generated by the two eccentric weights cancel each other out in the x-axis and add in the y-axis. As a result, a reciprocating excitation force is generated in the y-axis direction , So that the screen box in the y-axis direction of the reciprocating linear path vibration.

The surface angle of Linear Motion Shale Shaker is usually below 5 °, the screen surface vibration angle is generally 45 °, the screen surface in the exciter under the action of a straight reciprocating motion. Particles in the screen surface vibration under the projectile and fall, so that the material in the screen surface vibration of the process of continuous forward movement. Projection of the material and whereabouts of the screen surface has an impact, resulting in less than the sieve particles are separated by screening. Sieve screening efficiency and production capacity (capacity) are related to the screening of the angle of inclination, the vibration angle of the screen surface, the material’s ejection coefficient. In order to ensure high screening efficiency and large screen production volume, the appropriate Ky (ejection coefficient) value must be selected, which is the same as the method of selecting the Ky value by the vibration sieve.

KOSUN patented shale shaker is an equipment with welded structure. Vibration motor & screen plate base are installed into screen basket with special parts. Screen basket is fixed on the adjustment beam. At each of the four vertexes of the screen basket there is a vibration damping spring, which can prevent the adjoining parts and devices from being affected by the vibration. There are several screen panels on screen basket, and they are fixed and adjusted by snap-on screw bolts and hooking tensioners so that the combined effect of horizontal and vertical supporting bars may provide enough strength for screens basket. And the panels appear in an arched shape, thus making the panels more easily tensioned and more intimately connected with the frames, blessing them with longer service life as well as increasing the processing efficiency of particles.

The Economy of Linear Motion Shale Shaker
KOSUN Linear Motion Shaker is especially effective while drilling top-hole sections where heavy and high-volume solids are usually encountered. In these intervals, shakers may generate powerful G-forces and its effective vibrating motion can quickly remove the dense solids from screens and particles from wells.

The Economy of  Elliptical Motion Shale Shaker
KOSUN Balanced Elliptical Motion Shaker has a remarkable advantage in treating high viscosity drilling fluid. Under this working condition, the optimized balanced elliptical motion can effectively remove viscous solids and eliminate larger particles in drilling fluid. Meanwhile, the relatively moderate vibration strength can effectively reduce the screen consumption.

Kosun solids control undertakes equipment selection, design and manufacturing according to material data and actual demands of users. We warmly welcome users to visit our Company for field investigation, technical exchange and long-term cooperation.

What’s the Solid Control System consist of?

Kosun as the professional solid control system manufacturer, we have our own understanding about this system.In Kosun’s words, solid control system is also called drilling fluids purification system, primarily applied for solids control and solid-fluid separation in drilling fluids so that the drilling mud might be recycled. Consisted of 3-7 module composite tanks and configured with 4 phases of purification equipment, it is fit for 2000-7000 meter oil drilling processes. The whole system is innovative with the bottoms of its purification tanks made to be conical and its edges equipped with mud agitating system to prevent solids from depositing.

What’s the  Solid Control System consist of?

solid control system

The first main equipment for solid control system should be the vacuum degasser,We could analytics from the function of vacuum degasser. Generally speaking, horizontal vacuum degasser will be used to separate the gas from the drilling solids. What’s the reason to do like that? Because we should do everything to prevent any dangerous elements in oil & gas drilling fields. That’s why we should put the vacuum degasser as the first role.

The second one should be mud cleaner. KOSUN MD Series Mud Cleaner is the second stage separation equipment for drilling fluids, which deals with the mud being treated by the first grade separation equipment. The barite will be recovered and cuttings which are bigger than barite will be removed. Then the barite in the underflow will flow into circulation tanks through the screens when the weighted mud passes while the particles that are bigger than mesh will be removed.

The third equipment, we think it should be shale shaker (with necessary steel frame shaker screen). Actually, after the drilling solids have been transported and fed into vacuum degasser and mud cleaner, the third step is going with shale shaker. Commonly, we still need to be transported the solids onto the shale shaker, or we could say onto the surface of shaker screen. The equipment of transporting we should use is centrifugal sand pump or screw pump; and we may use shear pump to cut the drilling solids into small one if they are in big size. With the different design of the shaker screen’s mesh, we could get the drilling solids separated in different sizes.

The fourth equipment should be the decanter centrifuge. KOSUN DC Series Decanter Centrifuge is used to separate suspended solids ≥2μm in diameter and treat the drilling mud and fluids. It is especially effective when used in oilfield service industry, industrial service industry and especially in environmentally sensitive areas. This type of centrifuge is high in recovery rate, effective in solids control and remarkable in the reduction of cost spent on drilling mud resupplying and management.

Of course, the whole equipment must be mounted on the top of drilling mud tank, which is a kind of basic equipment for both solid control system and drilling waste management (vertical cutting dryer is the core equipment for this system), but it is a kind of powerful equipment.
