I SWACO, a Schlumberger company, has released the SCREEN PULSE† fluid and cuttings separator. Easily installed onto new or existing shale shakers, the fully pneumatic system delivers drilling fluid recovery of up to 30 bbl per day and an average drill cuttings waste reduction of 20%.

“Whether drilling on land, in shallow waters or in deepwater, our customers are always seeking ways to optimize the efficiency of their solids control process and thereby lower their total cost of drilling,” said Guy Arrington, president, M-I SWACO. “Combined with our shaker technology and lightweight composite screens, the new SCREEN PULSE separator maximizes drilling fluid recovery and generates drier cuttings. This reduces waste handling and disposal and overall drilling costs.”

The SCREEN PULSE separator is a retrofitted, fully pneumatic system equipped to operate up to four shakers simultaneously. A carbon fiber pan fitted with an air valve mechanism that provides a pulsing air supply pulls drilling fluid from the cuttings surface as they travel towards the discharge end of the shaker.

The new separator was field tested in the Middle East, South America, and North America, including Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Louisiana, proving a significant reduction in waste and increase in drilling fluid recovery in all basins.
