Tips for Installing the Drilling Shale Shaker

Shale shaker is a important part of solids control system, which is used widely in oil and gas drilling works. How to install and debug is a very important part.

The screen can be used alone or have two or more combined in which slurry influx pipe manifolds can be made according to the users’ requirements.

The installation and replace of the screen cloth: Screen cloth is an expensive wearing part for this equipment, the quality of its installation will directly influence its service life. A bolt stretching device is adopted to fix the screen cloth.

The regulating of the screen box’s dip angle: When slurry discharging quantity is too much or escaping because of a higher viscosity, the screen box’s dip angle should be regulated. The best dip angle is that one preventing slurring from escaping. The screen box’s dip angle of the facility can be discretionarily regulated by the values including -1°, 0°, 1°, 2°, 3°, 4°, 5°. When adjusting, the oil return valve of the hand pump should be screwed down firstly and tightly. At the same time, lightly press the manual rocker until the lifting slide bushing will be going up a little. By this step, have the pin drawn off with pressurizing finished manually. The movement of the hydraulic cylinder will change screen box’s dip angle. When the regulation finishes, the facility will not resume its work until the bolt pin is inserted with oil return valve unscrewed. While the screen is in its operation, the slurry should cover 3/4 of the screen cloth. If the covered area is not up to the standard, it shows that the shaker screen mesh is too thick. And to improve its purifying result the screen with thin mesh must be replaced.

Fixing screen box during transportation: In order to prevent any damage during transportation, please remember: the locking yoke should be tightly locked in transportation, making sure that there is no relative movement between screen box and pedestal. The locking yoke should be unlocked before its starting, otherwise, the machine will be seriously damaged!

The maintenance on sieving medium: The screen should be idly operated for 5~10min before stopping operation every time and the sieving medium should be cleaned with clean water at the same time. The sieving medium and its stand should be cleaned by water (in summer) or vapor (in winter) at least every shift. There should not be too much sediment on the sieving medium and its stand, especially when the viscosity or density is high or the screen mesh is thinner than 60. Otherwise the sediment on the sieving medium will block the meshes when dried, and the efficiency will be greatly impact its later operation, causing unnecessary escapes of slurry.
