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.

Why Choose Coarse Flow Line Shaker Screens in drilling rigs

Most drilling rigs operate their primary flow line shakers with screens that are far too coarse (to achieve meaningful solids control. Many factors cause this selection, and we now find ourselves in a viscous industrial cycle.

shaker screen

To cut costs, drilling rig operators use coarse screens that last longer and require significantly less personnel attention. Further, coarse screens minimize the risks of whole mud losses when drilling fluid circulation rates are high. However, the risk of whole mud losses would be significantly reduced, if a sufficient number of shakers, creating sufficient surface area, were installed.

By using coarse screens, drilling rig operators have become more reliant on solids control service companies to maintain the drilling fluid performance and ultimately the rig’s rate of penetration.

Most drilling rig hands do not understand that usually, the wetter the solids discharge from the flow line shakers, the higher quality solids cut is being achieved. This is especially the case when drilling through reactive hydrophilic soils.

Trial order of corrugated pyramid shaker screen from Nigeria

Trial order of pyramid shaker screen will flying to Nigeria this morning. This is only a simple which we send to them. The use of corrugated pyramid screens on a dryer in second stage mud and cuttings cleaning helped recover a large volume of oil-based drilling mud to save more than $60,000 in mud costs.


DC Machinery Company has again revolutionized screening technology with the introduction of the patented Pyramid (PMD) and Pyramid Plus (PMD+) screens. This revolutionary three dimensional screen design offers the benefits of traditional flat screens while adding a significant increase in useable screen area; allowing for a 70% increase in fluid handling capacity.


Benefits of Pyramid Screens compare with the flat screens:

1. Increased Shaker Capacity—Pyramid and Pyramid Plus screens increase the total amount of useable screen area by 50% to 125%.
2. Screen Finer Faster—Utilizing Pyramid or Pyramid Plus screens enables rigs to screen 2 to 3 mesh sizes finer than traditional perforated plate panels. This maximizes solids removal capacities.
3. Makes Fine Separations—Pyramid and Pyramid Plus screens are capable of making separations as fine as 43 microns.
4. Easily Repaired—The Pyramid screen design lends itself to easy field repair with RTV products.

Pyramid screens provide an easy, cost effective increase in shaker performance. Designed with the latest technology, Pyramid screens allow rigs to screen finer earlier in the drilling process, thus significantly reducing mud and disposal costs.

Shale shakers “heart and soul”- shaker screen

Basically, a screen acts as a “go/no-go” gauge: Either a particle is small enough to pass through the screen or it is not. Screening surfaces used in solids control equipment are generally made of multi-layered woven wire screen cloth and are the “heart and soul” of the shaker.

Fundamentally, the quality of a shaker is defined by the quality of screens it utilizes. When selecting a solids control system it is important that the quality of the screen manufacturing and level of experience by the in manufacturing screens is considered.


If the system is appropriately set up with a scalping system and a fine shaker screen system, the scalping screens must be sized just coarse enough to ensure that drilling fluid does not sheet off the shaker (i.e. whole mud losses). This happens when the scalping screen is too fine to allow the drilling fluid to pass into the solids control system’s dirty tank.


Typical scalping screen configurations for HDD applications range from 50 mesh (API 50) to 120 mesh (API 100). Typical fine screen configurations range from 160 (API 120) to 200 mesh (API 170). The API 13C classification is gaining traction in the HDD industry as more contractors focus on the micron cut point they are trying to achieve in their fluid.

Relative to the use of shaker screens, it is the size of the screen openings, not the mesh count that determines the size of the particles separated by the screen. It is because of this fact that HDD system users should compare and specify screens based on their API 13C designation.

Two types arrangement of the installation screen

Screen installation arrangement has two types of tandem and parallel.

  1. Tandem type installation screen

Tandem installing screen is that the drilling fluid must pass through two or more than two screens with decreasing pore size which are separated from each other by some distance. This arrangement has the advantages of the upper screen firstly screen out the large size ofcuttings, it can protect the more fine screen underlying effectively, especially in fast drilling. And when the solid content of the drilling fluid is increased, lower layer screen will not be overloaded; And the shortcomings of this kind of sieve are that it is not easy to observe the lower layer screen, if the replacement is not timely after being damaged, it will influence the treatment effect of drilling fluid.

Coupled with the inconvenient replacement, only one layer of screen is used in some crew.


  1. Parallel type installation screen.

Parallel installation screen refers to two or more than two meshes lap together and form a long screen. This type of instalation has the advantages of  increasing the treatment capacity and will not let the drilling fluid run away(because of the long screen); When a section of screen is broken, only the broken section needs to be changed. This can save the cost of screen and the replacement is more convenient. The disadvantage is that the structure is complex and the weight of the whole machine is increased.

New type steel frame screen for sale

The steel frame screen and the combination of 2 to 3 layers of stainless steel mesh in the framework of the constitution of the type of screen features are as follows:

(1) The screen nets with different mesh size, accurate and reasonable collocation and the screening effect is more careful.


(2) High strength steel frame and the support bar, and Chang appropriately tight mesh, forming a reliable overall, greatly enhanced the screen can withstand flow, strength and service life. Fast tensioning device to make the screen wedge installation is more convenient, saves the replacement time.

(3) The screen cloth is divided into a plurality of independent small mesh surface, which can prevent the partial breakage and excessive expansion. At the same time to be equipped with a special rubber plug repair damaged, which can save time, and reduce cost.
