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.

Shaker screen mesh is a type of screen that uses vibration to separate mud. It is made of a woven wire mesh that is stretched over a frame. The mesh is vibrated by an electric motor on the shale shakers, which causes the materials to move across the screen. The materials are separated by their size, with the smaller materials passing through the mesh and the larger materials being retained on the screen.

Vibrating screen mesh is used in a variety of industries, including mining, quarrying, and recycling. It is also used in the food and beverage industry to separate solids from liquids.

There are many different types of vibrating screen mesh, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. This time we are talking about the mud recycling meshes: woven wire meshes.

The choice of vibrating screen mesh depends on the specific application. For example, woven wire mesh is often used in applications where the materials are not very abrasive. It usually on the second or third shakers in a mud system.

These days I had finished a few quotations about these Composite Frame Flat screens.

If you are a buyer from UAE, and you work for a trading company providing equipment for drilling projects, I would recommend that you consider using GN API shaker screen mesh in your projects. Our screen mesh is a reliable and efficient way to separate materials, and it can help you to improve the quality of your drilling projects.

shale shaker is a screen mesh or a sieve that vibrates. The vibrating shaker screen mesh strains the slurry and liquid out of the mud. This mud is further sent to the mud tank. When the drilling equipment processes finer cuttings, they can usually be collected and recycled by a shale shaker.

The different need for a shale shaker screen is based on different mesh sizes and could be adjusted following the various API mesh number standards.

Mesh size usually is connected with the mesh number (a US measurement standard) and its relationship to the size of the openings in the screen and the size of particles that could pass through the openings. It is very easy to figure out the mesh number. All you need to do is count the number of openings in one linear inch of screen. This count is called the mesh number. A 4-mesh screen mesh means there are four small square openings across 1 inch of the screen. A 100-mesh screen means 100 openings per inch, and so on.

GN Solids Control manufactures shale shakers and screen meshes in the oil and gas industry. We provide API standards shale shaker screens for solids control shakers and mining shakers. GN shale shaker screens are compliant with API RP 13C.

How many types of shaker screens does GN have?

According to the factory stock, there are at least 3 kinds of screens: flat stainless-steel screen, wave stainless screen, and Polyurethane sieve plate. We don’t use API to describe a sieve plate. But Polyurethane sieve plates are also widely used in exploring industries.

Now, GN is able to provide replacement screens for nearly all widely known international shale shaker brands in the drilling industry.

1. GN uses robots to weld the internal steel frame to ensure consistency.
2. GN has its 3-layer design of API 60, while other suppliers in China use API 120.
3. The outer plastic material is 100% new and clean, not recycled materials.
4. The wire mesh is pre-tensioned so that the surface of the screen is stronger.
5. GN screen can be repaired with a screen rubber stopper when the damage is less than 10% of screen mesh.

All in all, GN screen meshes are well-designed and welcomed around the world. If you have a solids dewatering project and need replacement screens, don’t miss GN Solids Control!
