Applications of Shale Shaker Screen in Oil and Gas Industry

What are the Applications of Shale Shaker Screen in Oil and Gas Industry?

From extracting crude oil or natural gas from the ground require digging through thousands of feet of soil and rock to reach the oil reservoir, and a good shale shaker screen is recommended. For this purpose, the Shale Screen Quality and Shale Shaker Screen Sizes should be considered for optimal extraction in Oil and Gas Industry.

 

A good quality Shale Shaker Screen in Oil and Gas Industry is utilized as it can help operators to clean and reuse drilling fluid or mud which is valuable and costly resource. The Drilling Fluid is pumped into the vibrating screen, and the shale shaker screen removes the cuttings from the drilling fluid, while allowing the fluid to be pumped back into the well and can be reused.

  • Particle shape
  • Fluid Viscosity
  • Feed Rates
  • Particle Cohesiveness etc.
