Solids Control Equipment - Shale Shakers
The importance of shale shakers as the primary solids control equipment capable of handling the full returns from the wellbore cannot be over stressed. They must be operated as efficiently as possible, at all times, in order to maximise the amount of solids removed at the first pass.
Solids passing through the shakers will be re-circulated, during which they will be reduced in size. Wear and tear on pumps and tubulars will be the result and the reground cuttings will be even more difficult to remove on their next pass. If . . .
