Machine Factors Affecting Shaker Screen Performance

The Screening Media

There are several types of screening medium. The most popular, available in carbon steel, stainless steel, or other metal alloys, is woven wire screen with square or rectangular apertures. Profile bars, perforated plates, polyurethane, and rubber are examples of other materials. The significance of selecting the proper media for any screening application cannot be emphasized.

Material Factors Affecting Shaker Screen Performance

Particles in dry bulk materials come in a wide range of forms, sizes, surfaces, densities, and moisture contents. 

When attempting to forecast shaker screen performance, each circumstance must be considered due to its influence on capacity in terms of weight moving through a certain screen opening per unit area.

Drilling Cuttings(Solids) and Gas Removal Equipment In Mud Circulating System

The drilling cuttings removal equipment is often called solid-control equipment because it is mostly used for removing drilling cuttings in the mud returned from the borehole. Primary solid-removal equipment should include shale shakers, a degasser, a desander, a desilter, and a decanting centrifuge. All of these parts are installed on top of the mud tanks.
