Shale Shaker Screen api Size 60 mesh: 60 mesh, 250 Micron, 0.25 API range , 0.0098 Inches.
In an effort to better describe multilayered shaker screens, API issued API RP13. API is used to identify the largest solid that would pass through each screen (or the smallest solid captured by the screen); this is called D100. Solids smaller than D100 will pass though a D100 screen. Each screen manufacturer have its own D100 count (screen openings microns), but the micro court should among the same scope related a a certain API count. For example: D100: 137.5 ~165.0 equaled to API 100.
Shaker screen is the most important parts for shale shaker. Suitable screen size and reliable screen quality can greatly reduce drilling cost. And good design shale shaker can prolong lifetime of shaker screen.
Screen size usually indicated by mesh size or API size. Many clients wonder: what is difference of mesh size and API size? can they convert to each other?
Definition of mesh size:Mesh count is the number of opening per inch in directions perpendicular to each other and parallel to the screen wires. For example, a 40-mesh screen would have 40 openings per inch in one direction and 40 openings per inch in a perpendicular direction. In an effort to eliminate calling the screen a “40 by 40” screen, the common terminology resulted in calling the screen a 40-mesh.
During the 1960’s, the throughput volume was increase by making rectangular openings. If the mesh count was 20 opeings in one direction and 40 openings in a perpendicular direction, the screen would be labeled a 20×40 mesh. The marketing ploy, however, was to label the screen with a letter and then the number 60. This implied to many that the screen was a 60-mesh screen.
Although this was not stated explicitly. Rig crews were happy because the “fine-mesh” screens could handle more flow than a normal square-mesh screen. After rectangular screens became common, shale shaker throughtput was increased again. by mounting one screen on top of another screen instead of using only a single layer, see figure.
This layering created even more of a description problem because the opening were now non-uniform and difficult to describe. In the sketch, one square mesh screen is shown superimposed over another square mesh screen. A variety of opening resulted that cannot be described by a single number. (Editor:Kosun Lily.Wang)

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. KOSUN is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of shaker screens focused on today’s drilling contractor needs.

The Shale Shaker Screen is a mesh screen that is created out of woven metal that goes inside the shale shaker. Whenever solids or cuttings are produced from drilling equipment, they are coated in drilling liquid. When those cuttings are shaken over shale shaker screens, the screen is able to capture all of the solid particles and allow any excess mud to drip through the screen where it can then be deposited back into the tank.
Shale shaker screen is fine mesh (single, dual or triple layered) used for filtering and separating drilling cuttings from mud (drilling fluid). It is of great importance to drilling efficiency, KOSUN is committed to designing the high quality screening to provide our clients the right screen for the perfect fit at competitive price.

Shale Shaker Screen is wear part of the shale shaker, mainly classified into soft sieve screen, sieve plate type screen,and frame plate type screen.Product characteristics are wear resistance, wearability, rating of temperature, low cost, easy disassembly, conductivity ( powder ) liquid, good trapping ( dreg ) effect, etc.
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.

Shaker screen plays a very important role in the initial stage of the solid control system. If the shaker screen is correct, then you can be assured that the process is on the right track.
With the continuous development of innovation, the further development of technology, human found a new discovery, improved the previous existence. Likewise, the shale shaker screen has undergone modification, improvement and witnessing the new presentation. There are many types of shaker screens on the market.
This is the old Derrick shaker screen model. And pyramid shaking screen is cheaper.
This is an improved version of the flat screen. Has a higher drilling fluid handling capacity than the flat screen more effective.
-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.

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.
Shaker Screen consists of a frame that can either be of steel or plastic, into which mesh can be fitted. This mesh does the work of separating the mixture of solid and drilling fluid. A binding material is used to bind the mesh with the frame.
For maximum efficiency, Shaker Screen must be used properly. Following points describe how to properly use it.
– The cloth that is used for making the mesh must be of good quality. Also, if the layering of the mesh is increased, the efficiency of the screen will automatically increase and the fineness of the mesh will also increase.
– Methods must be implemented to increase the life of the screen. For this the first method is to have a very strong screen so that the meshes are supported very firmly. The second method is to provide proper tensioning to the screen.
– The screen must be protected from over tensioning or under tensioning.
– When not in use, the screens must be properly removed from the machine, cleaned and stored properly. Extra care must be taken while storing the screen.
– Also, when the screen in being installed, care must be taken that they are not mishandled. Mishandling of the screen, especially during installation may cause extra wear and tear.
– The weight of the mixture that is being fed to the screen must be in accordance to the amount of weight that the screen can handle. Different types of screens are available for various sizes of the mixture.
– The screens must be cleaned frequently and carefully. Care that must be taken during cleaning the screen is, the water that is being used is not of very high pressure or else it may cause the mesh to unbind from the frame.

Brandt shaker screen is the key component in shale shaker equipment. They function as a sieve to block the solid drilling waste and let the precious drilling fluid to be carried to a separate channel for further treatment.
Shaker Screen is used in Shale Shakers as part of solid control system in drilling operations of various industries, such as oil and gas drilling, mining, coal cleaning, etc. They primarily serve the purpose of separating drilling cuttings from the drilling fluids.
Drilling fluid is a cocktail of number of chemicals that help in the drilling process. Drilling fluid is prepared in two variations – water based and oil based, and they are very costly to obtain. They serve as lubricant agent to keep the drilling waste management system efficiently functioning. They keep the drilling bit cool and clean to penetrate deeper into the borehole. And because of these reasons, operators invest in technologies to lower their overall operational cost and also for the environmental purpose. Shale Shaker are one such equipment to achieve that goal.
Shaker Screen has two integral parts – a screen Panel and a screen Mesh. A screen panel will hold the mesh in place, to efficiently serve its purpose. It is much like a larger frame that holds smaller sections of the mesh with help of intersections. The frame itself comes in different material and shape. One key differentiator among them is the area of mesh between these intersection, that could be utilized for the screening. These intersections are known as “blanking”. The lower the blanking better the shaker screen’s performance.
The screen mesh could be understood as a piece of cloth woven with the wires to form fine rectangular openings. The screen mesh comes into variety in terms of its durability and conductance. Then there is a binding agent that joins the screen panel with the screen mesh.
The most modern development in shaker screen field is introduction 3D screen technology.
