Shaker screen is a very important part of shale shaker spare parts and also valuable parts. There are different of type screens like holk type/frame type, flat screen or pyramid screen, however there is screen mesh that same standard to separate solids particals by miron. How to translate screen mesh to micron ?

Please check the following chart is the relationship between API mesh and microns. There are slight different with API mesh and the standard mesh. If you make 15000 divided the mesh size, it will be microns. For example, if mesh is 100 and then it’s separation micron will be around 15000/100=150micron .

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.

High Quality Shale Shaker Screen for Sale

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 Many Types | Kosun Manufacturer

Shale Shaker Screen

Shale Shaker Screen happens to be the most dynamic part of the shale shaker equipment, as this performs the most important part of separating the solid waste from fluid in a drilling process. At the same time it is the most vulnerable part of the equipment also because it constantly deals with solid particles and chemical rich fluid that makes it prone to wear and tear easily.

Shale shaker screen has also evolved over time in design and performance. Shale shaker is the primary part of a solid drilling waste management system .  The latest development in the field is the introduction of 3D screen technology.

The basis of differentiation among various types of shake shaker screen remains to be their conductance. The manufacturers apply their innovation in shapes and designs to improve it’s performance. A few common types of shale shaker screens out there are –
Flat Screen
A flat screen type is the most common and traditional type of the shaker screens that could be mounted to most of the shale shakers. A flat shaker screen is also very cost effective. This contains the steel panels that are bound together by steel plank.

Pyramid Screen
Pyramid screens are an improvised version of flat screens. A pyramid screen effectively increases the screening area without the need of changing the structure of the shaker. With help of more screening area the fluid quantity increases and results in better

Metal Framed & Composite Framed Screen
Shaker Screens are usually metal framed and that standard is widely accepted in the industry. Composite frames are an extended version of the screen frames and since the introduction of composite frames, it has become quite popular among contractors due to their light weight and durability.

Hook Strip Screen
The hook strip screen comes in variations of sizes and designs and is used for straining and sieving etc. The mesh is secured with the help of clamping rails and the tension is applied with the help of woven wire cloth referred to as a hook strip.

Any machinery will give its best performance if maintained properly, so a preventive measure is a prerequisite if an operator wants to ensure the long life of the machinery. While routine services will take place as part of your preventive maintenance, there is something that operators themselves will be able to take care of and be rewarded with even better results. A simple way is to keep the machinery clean.

In solid control equipment, shaker screen performs that key job of eliminating the solids through the screen. So it is imperative that they are prone to damage if not kept properly clean and that will naturally increase the overall project cost.

Here are some ways to keep the shaker screen clean and safe:
•    If the shaker has been idle for some time, it is important that the shaker screen be cleaned before the use. To clean the shale shaker screen, the best way is to use water gun or water hose.
•    Usage of wire brush will actually damage the mesh, so stay clear of brushes in your cleaning process.
•    The shaker screen constantly sieves the waste material and likely to get clogged with waste material and as a result the screen holes will be blinded and hamper the process if filtration. To clean the blinded screen holes, use the water hose from back side. You could consider removing the larger particles manually, but never with a brush or stick, as the mesh of the screen is prone to be torn in the process if you use any of these.
•    Make sure that the screens are not left with the drilling waste i.e. drill cuttings and mud to be dried while in the screen. This will invariably lead to a pre-mature failure of the equipment.
•    Never allow any worn out rubbers to be used in the equipment, this directly lowers the performance of the equipment and damages the shaker screen.
•    Do not allow any other material to be placed over the shaker screens, either in function or in storage.
With these basic cleaning procedures, you could ensure a longer life for the shaker screen.

Shale shaker screen sizes is decided by shaker screens. Different shale shaker screens have different shale shaker screen sizes.

American Petroleum Institute has laid down the guidelines for solid control systems in drilling industry. However, the main purpose of this standardization was to provide the end user with a fair idea of what they are investing their money into, when the purchase a certain type of shaker screen.

Now, before we delve into the benchmarking by API, let us give you an overview of what the shaker screen is or why is it that important to be researched about?

Drilling is widely used activity in oil and gas industry, to obtain deep seated fossil fuel to fulfill the fuel requirement across the globe, and that makes this industry quite enormous. The drilling operations are carried out on hard ground surface or on the ocean surface. In the entire drilling process, one of the main challenges is the handling of the drilling waste, it is called solid control system. The most important but easy to missed part is the shale shaker screen sizes application in real spot.

API being one of the largest trading group of US in drilling industry, has set up certain industry standards to test the quality of shaker screens, that are respected worldwide. Based on these tests, they have labeled different shaker screen sizes that approved by ISO, and encourage the shale shaker manufacturers like Kosun to use those labels on the product to enable the end user for a fair comparison before purchase.

While quality of different shaker screens cannot alone assure its performance, as the actual performance, in terms of conductance and life, will depend on a variety of aspects. To name a few – Handling of shaker screen, installation and replacement, appropriate tensioning, deck rubbers, storage and cleaning, volume of mud and solids, etc.

Shale Shaker Screens

Shale shaker screens come in variety of sizes and shapes based upon shale shaker’s make and model. A Rectangular Heavy Duty Shaker Screen is mainly used for handling heavy solid drilling cuttings taken out during oil field drilling projects.

Shale shaker screens with high quality low price was attacted by clients around the world. Shaker screen design is unique inthis industry.

Drilling as such is widely used not only in oil and gas industry but in mining and coal cleaning industries also. Wherever the project demands handling heavy duty solid drilling waste management system , rectangular heavy duty shaker screens are deployed for use.

The main purpose of using shale shaker equipment is to separate out the drilling fluid from drilling solids i.e. drilling waste cuttings.
A Rectangular Heavy Duty Shaker screen uses two layers of finely knitted mesh material and one layer of a coarse mesh to enable the handling of the heavy duty solid waste to provide it better durability and better conductance.

There had been number of incidents where during the solid control system process, while shale shaker was deployed to separate drilling cuttings from drilling fluid, some thicker parts of solid would get stuck in the circulation and make their way through multiple layers of mesh of the shaker screen and over time burst the shaker screen’s mesh cloth. To prevent such incidents, rectangular heavy duty shaker screens came into existence.

RHD shaker screens follow proprietary multi layered technology, that enhances the overall permissibility of drilling fluid through the screen with much less resistance, which naturally enhances the performance of shale shaker equipment.

The shaker screens in RHD line are available in different variations, based on the particulate size they allow to permit through and these are standardized by the America Petroleum Institute through their labeling practice. API has labeled different shaker screens based on the holes size distribution measured with the help of light.

As the technology advances, the drilling industry is all set to go through much more modernized with start to finish automation.
