Shale Shaker Oilfield
Shale Shaker for oilfield is the most important products. As a general equipment,the shale shaker can seperate solids phase from drilling fluid.Many kinds of shapes available,square,rectangular,circular,and cylindrical.
Athough other shapes adapts to utilise,it did not commercialize. Until now,most of the shale shaker in market is rectangular.For drilling fluid,the solid phase over 74 microns is bad for its performance. According to this criterion,the inventor produced API 200 shale shaker.
Shale shaker is the first and also one of the most dispensible cleaning equipment to eliminate solid phase. It plays an important role in whole solid control system. When drilling fluid returns from drill hole to ground,the shale shaker will be the first line. Generally,it has a great influence on cost. On the other hand,if they use the broken shaker screen,the mud doesn’t across the screens. Or the quantity of the screen is choice inappropriate,it will cause the solid control system unable to opperate.
Shale shaker applied to any kind of fluid. The speed of circulation ,the structure of shale shaker,the character of drill hole ,as well as the performace of drilling fluid has influence on the selection of screen. It also depends on the geography location and geological condition a lot.
The use of shale shaker as well as other solid control equipment is to reduce the cost for drilling process. So the professional products will help the customers a lot.
API standards Shale Shaker Oilfield
The American Petroleum Institute (API) Screen Designation is the customary identification for screen panels.
API Number: the sieve equivalent as per API RP 13C
Conductance: the ease with which a liquid can flow through the screen, with larger values representing higher volume handling
Microns: a unit of length equal to one-thousandth of a millimeter
Non-blanked area: an evaluation of the surface area available for liquid transmission through the screen
