The separation size of shale shaker depends on 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 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.
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 shaker screen, clean mud will filter into mud tank. Not allowable bigger solids will pass the screen surface and be discharged.
KOSUN Linear motion shale shaker are ideal for high-capacity processing and the compact and easy-to-service design makes them a perfect choice for fast conveyance and heavy loading in tough drilling conditions.When drilling top-hole sections or while heavy-volume solids are encountered, in these intervals, shakers are required to generate high G-forces to effectively move high-capacity drilled solids across the screens.
–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.
KOSUN Balanced elliptical motion shale shaker are the best choice for max retention time and frequency for highly need of dryer drilled cuttings in light-loading drilling conditions.The unique balanced elliptical basket and easy-to-service design makes them a wonderful choice for reducing solids control operation cost.When faced with gentle light-loading drilling fluids, the ES shale shakers are required to reduce G-forces and maintain longer screen residence time, this results in drier solids,better drilling fluid recovery, longer screen life andreduced operating costs.

Shale shakers are the first line of defense for a properly designed solids control system. Shakers have been used on drilling rigs since the 1940’s and are a significant part of the drilling process. Shale shakers work by removing solids from drilling fluid as the mud passes over the surface of a vibrating screen. The liquid portion of the mud and solids pass through the screen while larger solids fall off the back end and are thus discarded. Drilling fluids are a key aspect of the drilling process and often lubricate & cool the drill bit and take drilled cuttings from the borehole. Shakers still remain the backbone of any solids control system. As time has progressed, so have these technologies; more advanced and efficient designs have been cultivated including screen technology.
For more than 25 years, KOSUN has manufactured effective solids control and waste management equipment. KOSUN’s driving principal is to provide quality, dependable equipment.

Shale shaker screen sizes selection is based on original shaker screen size. Such as the overall dimension. Shaker screen dimension, usually means the overall size of screen panel. If the screen is framed one, dimension include length, width, height or thickness. If the screen is hook strip, dimension means the length, width, and hook height or hook size.
Besides screen overall size, there are detail size on screen panels. Such as holes shape and size. The screen cloth mesh size. Effective screen area, the non blanked area, and so on.Users should also consider the certain drilling condition or mud property. The main function or achievement we need.
Almost shaker screen demand is the replacement shaker screen for present shaker. Screens replacement should be completely interchangeable with original or existing one. If user are not sure about screen mesh size or API size selection. Please toward to mud engineer, shaker screen manufacturer. Take their suggestion as reference or guidance.
Usually, at the beginning of well drilling the screen cloth request coarse opening. Thus we’ll enjoy higher frequency. When the well drilled deeper and deeper, we request finer and finer screen. As the drilling mud property and cuttings are different.
The popular shale shaker screen sizes including 700x1050mm, 630x1250mm, 585x1165mm, 710x1250mm, and so on. Mesh sizes for oilfield solids control shaker are usually from API 40-API325.
A Shale Shaker Screen is a component of a drilling rig that acts as the first point of contact or first phase by which drill cuttings come in contact while entering into the shale shaker equipment. A shale shaker is a solid separation tool that helps in the removal of the large portions of cuttings from drilling fluids. Shale shaker screens are important to the shale shaker equipment used in the mining, oil and gas and coal cleaning industries for grinding and controlling drill cuttings from mud.
Shale shakers are considered to be vital components of drilling equipment. These are not only used in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry, but also in other industries, such as ore mining and cleaning, coal mining and cleaning, etc. A shale shaker forms the very first phase of the solids control system on a drilling rig.
A typical shale shaker tank consists of the following components:
-Basket Angling Mechanism
Shale shaker screens come with a variety of frames such as steel frames, composite frames, hook strip flat type screens, pyramid shaped screens, etc. The specification of a shale shaker screen varies as per the mesh size and the mesh size is designed as per the various API screen number specifications. For example, mesh size >7801.0 TO 925.0 microns is designed as per API 20 and mesh size > 550.0 TO 655.0 microns is designed as per API 30 and so on.

-Hookstrip Soft Shaker screen
This is the early use of the vibrating screen. Has been surpassed by the newer models.
Hookstrip flat screen
The Hookstrip flat screen has a vibrating screen for easy sorting, screening and screening. It is usually used by the driller. Layer 2 to 3 layers of hooks and layered screens used in plastic enhancements enhance screen saver.
This screen is commonly used in the industry. It is made of 2 to 3 layers of stainless steel, tightly tied to the frame, to make it strong. Rubber stoppers can be used to repair gaps or breaks.
This makes the screen cost-effective.
The composite screen is an improved version of the steel frame. The vibrating screen is lighter and more durable and can withstand high temperatures.

In China oil drilling fluids solids control industry, KOSUN is a pioneer and leader, we has been providing solids control equipment for more than 20 years, the products include shale shaker,shale shaker screen, desander, desilter, vacuum degasser, centrifugal pump, submersible slurry pump, shear pump, mud agitator, mud gun, drilling fluids mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge, jet mud mixer, mud tank, diesel tank, water tank and complete solids control system, etc.
Drilling fluids shale shaker is a kind of filterable mechanical separation equipment, compared with other mechanical solids control equipment, its unit cost is kinda of economic. And it is a highly efficient separation equipment which obtains solid removal amount. Drilling fluids shale shaker is made of screen body, machine rack and gearing. Accordingly, mechanical vibration will make solid phase which is bigger than screen hole and the adhesive attraction will screen the solid phase particles which is smaller than screen hole. But all mud can’t be processed in circulating process because of the limit of shale shaker mud permit.
Usually the material of drilling fluids shale shaker is stainless knitted. Usually this kind of screen uses mesh to express the specification. Mesh is the number of screen holes, for example, a square screen that has 12 holes is called 12-mesh screen. Screen with a special outfit screen holder will screen into flake tension type fixed on the screen frame. Screen body is fixed to the rack based on spiral spring, and rubber articles’ bumper adopts the bottom-fixed type.
Oil Rig Shaker Screen Frame-Much like a canvas for painting a screen has to be supported on a frame in order to do its job, this frame differs between manufacturers in both material and shape. Screen frames can be made from materials, such as, square steel tubing, flat steel sheets, plastic type composites or they can just be supported on the ends with strips of steel ( similar idea to a scroll ). These frames consist of a rectangular shaped outer perimeter which is divided into small individual inner panels. These smaller panels differ in shape from manufacturer to manufacturer and have been known to come in shapes such as square, hexagonal, rectangular and even triangular.
These differing panel shapes are used in an attempt to reduce the quantity of panels on each frame but still provide maximum rigidity and support for the mesh attached to them. The purpose of reducing these panels is to maximize usable screening area as the walls of each panel get in the way of the mesh and prevent it from being used, this is known as “blanking”. The non-blanked screening area of a shaker screen is widely used as a selling point, the more screen surface you have available to work, the more efficient your shaker becomes and therefore can handle a higher quantity of fluid.
Screen Mesh-Just like thread is woven together to create cloth, metal wire can be woven to create a metal cloth. Screen Mesh has evolved over many years of competitive screen manufacturing resulting in very thin yet strong cloth designed to maximize screen life and conductance as well as to provide a consistent cut point. To increase the conductance of a mesh screen you have to minimize the amount of material in the way, this is done by either reducing the wire diameter or weaving the cloth to produce rectangular openings. Rectangular openings increase the screens conductance while minimizing the effect on its cut point where as square openings provide a more consistent cut point but offer a lower conductance.
To maximize screen life most manufacturers build their screens with multiple layers of mesh over a very sturdy backing cloth to further protect the cloth against solids loading and wear. The multiple layers of mesh act as a de-blinding mechanism pushing near sized particles, which may get stuck in the openings, out of the mesh reducing blinding issues and keeping the screen surface available for use.
Binding Agent-The binding agent is the material used to bind the mesh to the screen frame, it is designed to maximize adhesion to both materials while being able to handle high heat, strong vibration, abrasive cuttings and corrosive drilling fluids.
Plastic composite screens tend not to use adhesives but rather heat the mesh and melt it into the screen frame to form a bond.
3D Screen Technology-One of the more recent advances in oilfield screen technology has brought us the “3D screen”, this technology is an innovative method for increasing the screening area of a shale shaker without the need to build larger machines. When seen from the side, these screens look like corrugated cardboard, having a flat bottom and wavelike shapes on top. These waves are designed to increase the surface area of the screen panel by building up instead of out, thereby maximizing the surface area of the screen without the need to build larger shaker screens and in turn larger, heavier and more expensive shakers.
