Shale shaker functions and development in DC Machinery

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.

Shale 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.

For more than 10 years, DC Machinery has manufactured effective solids control and waste management equipment. DC Machinery’s driving principal is to provide quality, dependable equipment. DC Machinery is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of shaker.

Mud Cleaner is the second phase or the third phase solids control equipment, and it is a combination of desander, desilter and underneath shale shaker with the features of compact structure, small footprint and great efficiency. It is an ideal equipment as the second or the third phase solids control equipment.

DC solid control company has many different models mud cleaner in stock to meet users urgently requirements. The mud cleaner combination consists of two sets of hydro cyclones: a desander to eliminate particles of 120 – 60 μ, and a desilter which eliminates particles smaller than 60 to 20 μ.


The combination of varying physical mud cleaning principles results in a high capacity mud cleaning combination with high a operational efficiency and minimum maintenance, repair and replacement costs.

Hydro cyclones form an extremely cost efficient first step to convert sand and silt loaded mud into relatively particle free fluids. Drilling fluids are pumped at high speed, up to 1500 GPM ( 340 m3/hr) at a pressure of 30 to 40 PSI (2,2 to 2.8 bar) into the hydrocyclone manifold, feeding each hydrocyclone equally.

The finer particles together with fluid moves upward and escapes through the overflow tube of the hydrocyclone, a small portion of the liquid, together with the coarser particles, is eliminated through the underflow vents, and undergo a final cleaning step in the shaker resulting in ecologically sound operations and lower maintenance and disposal costs.

Mud agitators produced by DC Solid control

Mud agitators are designed to mix and suspend the solids using axial flow, promoting low particle size degradation and effective polymer shear. Unlike mud guns, the DCJBQ mud agitator is relatively a low energy device, easy to operate and inexpensive to maintain.

DC Solid control Oilfield Products is pleased to offer a full-line of Mud Agitators. Mud Agitator Available in 5 -15 horsepower, our extreme-duty mud agitators feature the rugged and reliable Nord gear box for long-lasting performance. Along with the gearbox, all our Mud Agitators include an explosion proof motor, impeller and shaft assembly.

Solids control mud agitators are the mud mixers on Mud Tank. Including the horizontal and vertical type. That is meant by motor mounting direction. Nowadays, more and more users prefer the helical bevel geared agitator.

DC manufacture mud agitator with worm and wheel gearbox, also the agitator with helical bevel gear box. The high performance, efficiency, and quality is appreciated much among clients.

DCS Series shale shakers from DC Solid control

DCS linear motion shale shaker can be used for oil and gas drilling, horizontal directional drilling applications, which is the first phase solids control equipment of the drilling mud system, followed by Mud Cleaner (desander, desilter), Decanter Centrifuge.

Vertical cutting dryer used for drilling cutting management

DC Vertical Cuttings Dryer is used in the drilling industry for recovery oil from the drilling cuttings.In drilling operations, typical solids control equipment discards 1-4 barrels of liquid for each barrel of solids removed.

Unlike the first Generation and traditional Vertical cuttings dryer, DC Solids Control has improved the Vertical cuttings dryer with a patented scraper system inside the basket screen, and a high pressure air knife system is fitted to assist in continues cleaning of the screen for the vertical cuttings dryer while working.

vertical cutting dryer

The purpose designed cuttings dryer is an absorption of advanced technologies at home and abroad. It has very strong structure and excellent separation result. The drier is reliable and trustful for your choice of cuttings management applications.

DC Vertical Cuttings Dryer fixed with individual oil lubrication system with automatic alarm for pressure limit. The main motor and oil pump motor is interlocked with each other for avoiding the start of the main motor prior to the start of the oil pump motor.

DC Compact Mud desanding plant for bored pile project

DC compact bored pile desander mud cleaning machine has been widely used in Asia countries to recycling drilling fluids for the foundation construction. DC compact mud system is widely used in Tunneling Construction, Bored Pile, Horizontal Directional Drilling(HDD), etc.

mud plant

DC Solids Control just finished the manufacturing of 3 sets bored pile drilling mud systems for one American customer. DC Solids mud treating systems now is widely recognized by customers from many countries.

mud system

The main component of the DC compact mud desanding plant include a shale shake we use 2 layers shaker screen, with dimension size 900x750mm. Why 2 layers? To achieve higher efficiency, upper shaker screen to separate mud, while down shaker screen to dry drilling fluid.

Bored Pile Desanding Plant is simplified mud recycling system, After intermediate mud pit, DC mud recycling system can efficiently separate the solid and liquid, lower the solids content in recycling mud, drying the waste solids. The bored desander plant is very compact design for easier transportation, and more economic.

Users should know how to protect the shaker screens

Operators must consider how to protect their investment beyond purchasing durable screens. Proper maintenance will affect all screens’ quality. On the job site, screens should be stored in their boxes and stacked flat (or in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations).



Mishandling panels, especially during storage and installation, may cause premature 
screen failure. Operators should also make sure that shaker screens are always properly mounted, check for proper tensioning and replace worn deck and crown (channel) rubbers as soon as possible.



Personnel should never walk on screens when working on shakers. They should also avoid dropping tools on screens. After service each day, screens should be washed down, especially if drilling is occurring in sticky solids such as clay.

Periodically, shaker screens should be thoroughly inspected for tears and holes. If unresolved, these issues will result in a major mud weight problem and may cause a heavy buildup of solids being returned to the active mud tank. Monitoring for extremely high mud weights will also help extend screen life. All personnel must be aware of the proper operation, installation, storage and maintenance of shaker screens.
