Background

An operator sought to compare the performance of conventional screens versus DURAFLO composite replacement screens in a side-by-side test. M-I SWACO conducted a full vibratory systems analysis test on three BRANDT KING COBRA VENOM shakers. Screen replacement, gasket condition, and mesh wear were evaluated at an equivalent flow rate of 570 gpm and deck angles for unbiased results.

DURAFLO Screens for KING COBRA VENOM Shaker Last Twice as Long As Conventional Screens

Side-by-side testing demonstrates DURAFLO screens’ efficiency based on screen replacements, gasket condition, and mesh wear

Testing proved that the DURAFLO screens (left) handled the full flow rate at the drilling ROP of 131 ft/h and lasted on average 55 hours compared with the conventional screens’ (right) life of 23.5 hours. Additionally, the DURAFLO screens discarded 55% more solids versus the conventional screens over the same time frame, indicating that the screens performed more work before requiring replacement.
