Today’s shale shakers must be capable of maintaining optimum fluid properties to maximize drilling efficiency.Joe Bacho
Define Shale Shaker
Shale shakers are components of the solids control systems. Shale shaker mainly used in the oil and gas drilling industry. Shale shaker is the first phase of a solids control system on a drilling rig, and are used to remove large solids (cuttings) from the drilling fluid (“mud”).

The circulating system pumps drilling mud in and back out of the well hole. Drilling mud is stored in several steel mud tanks on the ground beside the rig.

Effective rotary steerable drilling systems overcome most of the problems with steerable motors by providing continuos pipe rotation while drilling. This is accomplished, with the tool reported on in this paper, with a non-rotating steerable sleeve containing three extendable pads that push against the borehole wall.

The rule of solids control is always the same: Success to any method of solids control is achieved when cuttings are kept intact from bit to surface.
