The flo-divider is designed to maximise the solids removal capabilities of shale shakers. By pooling and dividing the drill fluid upstream from the shale shakers, the flo-divider ensures that each shaker receives an equal flow of drilling mud and an equal distribution of drilled solids.
Features and benefits
- Eliminates the need for a back tank and shaker by-pass
- Minimises the effect of pitch and heave
- Reduces overall space requirements
- Fits easily onto most rigs
- Is applicable for all derrick shakers
Trouble free handling capacities are increased by the flo-divider, which distributes fluids/solids equally to multiple downstream shale shakers.
The unit’s weir gates, or end user provided air actuated knife gate valves, can be used to shut down flow to one or more of the outlets for servicing a downstream unit, adding or removing a shaker, or bypassing all shakers.
The flo-divider eliminates the need for back tanks and shaker bypasses and minimises the effect of pitch and heave. The unit is available in four sizes: 3, 4, 5, and 6-way.
