Recently, I received an email about hex shaker screens. I thought it would be helpful to share some information about these screens with you.
What is a hex shaker screen?
A hex shaker screen is a type of screen that is used in shale shakers. Shale shakers are pieces of equipment used in the oil and gas industry to remove solids from drilling fluid. The shaker consists of a series of screens that are vibrated to create a centrifugal force that throws the solids out of the fluid. Hex shaker screens are made of a hexagonal mesh that is designed to trap solids more effectively than traditional square mesh screens.
Why use hex shaker screens?
There are several benefits to using hex shaker screens in shale shakers. First, they are more effective at trapping solids than traditional square mesh screens. This is because the hexagonal shape of the mesh creates a larger surface area for the solids to adhere to. Second, hex shaker screens are less likely to clog than square mesh screens. This is because the hexagonal shape of the mesh allows the fluid to flow more freely through the screen. Third, hex shaker screens are more durable than square mesh screens. This is because the hexagonal shape of the mesh is less likely to tear or warp.
What are the advantages of GN hex screens?
- Larger usable area: GN hex screens have a usable area that is 10-20% larger than the metal frames of OEM screens.
- Rust-resistant: Compared with OEM screens, GN hex screens are made with composite frames that are resistant to rust, making them ideal for long-term storage.
- High-quality fiberglass: The composite frames of GN hex screens are made with high-quality fiberglass, which improves the plastic quality and makes the screens resistant to temperatures up to 140°C.
What are the applications of hex shaker screens?
Hex shaker screens can be used in a variety of applications in the oil and gas industry. They are commonly used in shale shakers, but they can also be used in other types of equipment, such as mud cleaners and desanders/desilters. Hex shaker screens are also used in other industries, such as the mining and water treatment industries.
