PLC Shaker Screens: The Shape of the Future

Featured Image

Our team at PLC is proud to be manufacturing our very own unique Shaker Screens. Okay, so what's so special about these screens? Keep reading to find out more about us and our shaker screens.

The Shaker screens of the Future

Our screens are designed with a unique "1" design. This design increases the open area or working area of a screen panel. The more open area you have the more volume your shaker can handle and will allow to use finer screens to make a finer separation.

The idea behind solids control is to remove as many of the fine solids (sand) generated when drilling. The fine sand or solids will wear out your drilling bit, pumps, pipe, etc. similar to sand paper. Solids control and screening are used to prevent wear and tear on equipment used to pump the mud (chemicals) on a drilling rig.

You can compare a shaker with screen panels to the fuel filter in your car. It removes small particles from your engine oil so your engine does not get damaged. Similarly, our screens remove small particles from the drilling mud. 

Unibody Frame

How is our shaker screen different than others out there? The unibody frame makes the screen panel lighter allowing the shaker to maximize its “g” forces. The unibody also eliminates the top layer from separating.cid16_X_RgAAAAB62iQr2fGFRIwZTxyL6KJ4BwA309bVE35tTYT7qQ88WwQTAAAAAAEJAAA309bVE35tTYT7qQ88WwQTAAABbE2SAAAJ_EABD_fiLC1CVRqMvMrrzFYcl

Many of our competitors bond a perforated sheet metal to a frame. This allows rust to build between the frame and the sheet metal causing premature separation of the layers.

The unibody is made up of one piece that is folded into a frame.
