PAN Industries manufacture shale shaker for Drilling rigs. Pan Shale shaker is solids control equipment in drilling purification system. It can remove cuttings above 75 μm brought from the drilling well to leave the liquid with smaller particles into the tanks below, which will flow into next grade solids control equipment for further treatment.

Shale shakers are the most important and easiest-to-use solids-removal equipment. They are the first line of defense once drilling fluid is returned from the well bore.


What is Shale Shaker

Shale Shaker are first phase of a solids control system on a drilling rig, and are used to remove large solids (cuttings) from the drilling fluid (“mud”).Shale shakers are the most important and easiest-to-use solids-removal equipment.
They are the first line of defense once drilling fluid is returned from the well bore. In most cases, they are highly cost-effective. If shale shakers are used with torn screens, fluid bypassing screens, incorrectly sized screen panels, or worn parts, the remaining solids-removal equipment will not perform properly.

How Shale Shaker Works

In a shale shaker operation, a wire-cloth screen vibrates while the drilling fluid flows on top of it. The liquid phase of the mud and solids smaller than the wire mesh pass through the screen, while larger solids are retained on the screen and eventually fall off the back of the device and are discarded.

Shale Shaker Screen Selection

Screen selection for shale shakers is dependent on geographical and geological location. Screen combinations that will handle specific flow rates in the Middle East or Far East will not necessarily handle the same flow rates in Norway or the Rocky Mountains. The best method to select shale shaker screens and/or number of shale shakers for a particular drilling site is to first use the recommendations of a qualified solids control advisor from the area. Screen use records should be established for further guidance.

Shale Shaker Manufacturer in India

PAN Industries shale shakers are the equipment with welded structure. Vibration motor & screen plate base are installed into screen basket with special parts. Screen basket is fixed on the adjustment beam. At each of the four vertexes of the screen basket put a vibration damping spring, which can prevent the adjoining parts and devices from being affected by the vibration. Linear Motion Shale Shaker of PAN Ind. is especially effective while drilling top-hole sections where heavy and high-volume solids are usually encountered. In these intervals, shakers may generate powerful G-forces and its effective vibrating motion can quickly remove the dense solids from screens and particles from wells.

Our Shale Shaker Characteristics
