New shaker borrows mining technology to generate drier cuttings with increased G-force, multi-frequency

Operators are demanding more effective waste management to comply with increasingly stringent environmental standards and to reduce drilling mud costs. This is driving service companies to prioritize technologies that increase fluid recovery and create drier cuttings. Earlier this year, Fluid Systems commercially launched the MultiG shale shaker, which borrows patented “exciter” weight technology from the mining industry to exert up to 50 G-forces on drilling mud. In this video, Fluid Systems President Ben Hiltl explains to DC’s Alex Endress how the exciters achieve increased G-force while also maintaining multi-frequency to avoid screen binding. Additional information about the MultiG, as well as other advances in solids control technologies, will be available in the September/October issue of DC.
