Dual motion shale shaker

Dual motioni shale shaker combined linear motion shaker and balanced elliptical one.  Majority clients prefer the dual motion type since they think the dual motion will be more convenient or advanced for operation. In fact, some time the dual motion type may solve problems at certain situation.

However, the dual motion shale shaker fixed with 3 motors. Each of them are much heavy and they can’t be uninstalled either one. As we know, the shaker performance is rather important for whole system since it is the first stage solids control equipment. And the shale shaker will be affected by its own weight, the mud conditions, the actual drilling situation, etc.

Balanced elliptical shale shaker

The balanced elliptical shaker shaker is considered as another advanced equipment among drilling mud equipments.  It holds balanced elliptical motion track. It decreases the screen jam, block, also the horse foot effect. So that increases the treating capacity or efficiency.

Before the balanced elliptical shale shaker there was linear motion shaker. Based on 3rd generation shaker the balanced elliptical one is more popular with clients. And the 4th generation one usually hold 3 or 4 panels screens. Since the 2 vibration motors are different with former type it makes the motion much better for drilling mud processing. The balanced elliptical shaker also have the strength on adjustable vibration strength and the deck angle.


Comparison conclusion

Different working conditions result different result. However, considering operation convenience and portable ability wee kindly suggest the balanced elliptical one. Since the shale shaker performance will be affected by many issues such as drilling mud property, well drilling type, drilling rig, its own weight.

And the dual motion shale shaker will always bring 3 heavy motors for change motion anytime, then the treating result will not be such good as common type shaker. It means when it uses linear motion it will be worse than common linear motion, while when it takes balanced elliptical motion it will be not good as the balanced elliptical one.

So, please take above info as reference. And if you want to know more about elliptical shale shaker please contact GN without hesitance
