Mechanical solids control equipment selectively separate solids either through size differences, mass differences or both. Shale shakers use screens; hydrocyclones and centrifuges use centrifugal force. Understanding what are the key design factors and optimum operating limits for each of these … Read the rest
The most familiar combination separator is the Mud Cleaner or Mud Conditioner (Figure 1). In many cases, combinations of vibratory screening and settling/centrifugal force are used together to provide an effective separation.
