Shakers: There are three kinds of shakers in the market including orbital, elliptical and linear motion. GN provides the most reliable linear motion shale shaker. Technically, linear vibration is generated by a pair of eccentric motor turning in opposite directions. The design is able to allow for the development of straight line or linear motion that can also be produced in a positive incline. Therefore, linear shaker is capable of processing heavy clays, debris, small particles and ultra-fines.3C  (1)

Hydrocyclones: In order to further effectively remove ultra-fine solids the hydrocyclone size may either be 4, 5, 10 or 12 in. The smaller cone you have the ultra-fine solids you will clean. Each size cone has the corresponding micron cut point. GN 4 inch cones have a micron cut of 20 microns and the 10 in. have a 40 micron cut. Each 4 inch Hydrocyclone cones process the drilling fluids at a rate of 50 gallon/minute. Each 10 inch Hydrocyclone cones process the drilling fluids at a rate of 500 gallon/minute.
