- Pyramid and Pyramid Plus Screen Technology
- Super G Vibrating Motors
- Mechanical Deck Angle Adjustment
The FLC 503 and 504 shale shakers offer many features of the FLC 500 series shakers but at a lower cost. Powered by two Derrick Super G vibrating motors, the 503 is a 3-panel machine that operates at 7.0 Gs, and the 504 is a 4-panel shaker operating at 7.3 Gs (Super G2 motors are available as an option). Processing rates vary from 560 GPM of a 17.8 PPG fluid using DX-A140* screens on an FLC 503 to more than 900 GPM of a 9.1 PPG fluid with DX-A140* screens on an FLC 504. The available screening area per API RP 13C for the FLC 503 is 24.9 square foot with the Pyramid screen and 34.5 square foot with the Pyramid Plus screen. For the FLC 504 the available screening area per API RP 13C is 33.2 square foot with the Pyramid screen and 46.0 square foot with the Pyramid Plus screen.
Single-side tensioning reduces screen panel replacement time to less than one minute per panel. One pair of tensioning fingers and Quick-Lok 1/2-turn tensioning bolts on each screen panel permit faster, easier, and more reliable screen panel tensioning. To match installation and operational requirements, the shaker can be supplied in either right- or left-hand configuration.
Its manually operated, adjustable while drilling (AWD) mechanism, designed for quick, easy deck adjustment, operates from -1° to +5° on the FLC 503 and -1° to +7° on the FLC 504. As drilling rates and formation or mud properties change, the angle of the screen deck can be adjusted to achieve the proper solids conveyance and fluid end point. Increased capacity, longer screen life, and optimal solids removal efficiency are the results.
- DX-A140 replaces DX 175 and DX 210.
Flo-Line® Cleaner 503 and 504 Mud Cleaner
The modular design of the FLC 503 and 504 permits the machine to be configured as a high performance mud cleaner, desander/desilter, or even as a primary shaker.
Dual and Triple FLC 503 and 504
The Dual and Triple FLC 503 and 504 are single skidded units configured with a common back tank and center cement by-pass with gate valve. When fitted with Derrick’s Pyramid screen technology, the Dual FLC 503 has the following area available for screening per API RP 13C: 49.8 sq. ft. with the Pyramid screen and 69.0 sq. ft. with the Pyramid Plus.
A low weir feed option is now available. The low weir feed design is one of the lowest in the industry at a height of 25-3/8”. The low weir feed is available with an optional Extreme Seal™, capable of withstanding temperatures from -60° F to 340° F (-51° C to 171° C).
