Shale Shaker

Model choice of fluid shale shaker

The shale shaker is choose by the following facts:
The handling capacity (GPM)
The type of fluid, the ratio of the mass density, the speed of flow and temperature
salt and/or acid of materials (Confirm to use 304# stainless steel or 316L stainless steel)
Size of the solids material and screening accuracy needed
The sums of meshes (API)
The placed-area size to place the shale shaker in oil field

The set-up of shale shaker

When first commission the shale shaker, keep put the shaker on a horizontal base. The base needs to be firmed.

The shock-resist rubber material should be installed between the working table and equipment.
Remove the shipping brace like bolts and lugs because the base and screen box are connected by springs, so when ship, the above part of the equipment is secured by the shipping braces.
Do not turns on the equipment before remove the shipping braces.
The cables connected the vibration motors on the shale shaker always damaged during severe vibration. Protected-cover for the cable is provide and need to install with cable when connect control panel and the motors.
When stop using the shale shaker, the shale shaker screen should always is washed by clean water.

The installation of shale shaker screens

Clean the adhesive side well and put on the shaker screens.
Install the wedge blocks at the two sides at the same time.
Do the test-run after the installation of shaker screen to ensure installation is done properly. If there is any unusual noise of poor contact, stop immediately and recheck the installation of shaker screens.
The tilt-angle adjustment of screen box

When the volume of fluid running is too large, the mesh screen should be changed. When fluid running is small, the angle should be adjusted by tilting.
The angle of the screen should be tilted according to the actual demand. The adjustment range is -1 to +5 degree. When adjust the tilt-angles, take off the pin first, loosen rings screws, then run the manual and/or electric hydraulic pump.
When the shale shaker properly works, the fluid should flows 3/4 of the whole screen, if the fluid can not flows as much as required, in order to increase the effect of cleaning, the shaker screen should be changed.
