Dilution and disposal costs are minimized with the FLC 2000 shale shaker. Integrating the industry's latest advancements in shaker design, high capacity, fine screening, and drier cuttings discharge, this machine can dramatically reduce operating costs. Combining high G-force vibrator motors with Derrick's exclusive Pyramid screen technology, the FLC 2000 significantly improves solids separation.
The FLC 2000 shaker is available in both 3- and 4-panel designs. The 3-panel machine operates at 7.0 Gs, and the 4-panel shaker operates at 7.3 Gs. Demonstrated processing rates have ranged from 560 GPM of a 17.8 PPG fluid using Pyramid DX-A140* screens on a 3-panel machine to more than 900 GPM of a 9.1 PPG fluid with Pyramid DX-A140* screens on a 4-panel shaker. The available screening area per API RP 13C for the FLC 2000 3-panel is 24.9 square foot with the Pyramid screen and 31.95 square foot with the Pyramid Plus screen. For the FLC 2000 4-panel, the available screening area per API RP 13C is 33.2 square foot with the Pyramid screen and 42.6 square foot with the Pyramid Plus screen.
Fast, easy, and reliable screen panel tensioning is provided by two pairs of Rapid-Change draw bolts on each side of each screen panel. Ramp-Lok tensioning is available for the FLC 2000. Its hydraulic, adjustable while drilling (AWD) is designed for quick, easy deck adjustment and operates from -1° to +5° on the 3-panel shaker and -1° to +8° on the 4-panel model. Top, weir, and weir bypass feeders are available for both machines.
Two Derrick Super G vibrating motors produce the high G, linear motion that powers the FLC 2000 shaker. These motors feature permanently lubricated, sealed bearings and are designed for maintenance-free operation. Super G2 vibrating motors are available as an option for the FLC 2000. These patented motors feature oil-bath bearing lubrication that significantly reduces maintenance and dramatically lengthens bearing life. Both motors offer low noise levels resulting in a significantly reduced decibel level during shaker operation-approximately 81 dBA with the Super G motors and 78 dBA with the Super G2 motors.

Flo-Line Cleaner 2000 Mud Cleaner
The FLC 2000 Mud Cleaner is a specially configured FLC 2000 shale shaker. Its modular design permits the machine to be configured as a high performance mud cleaner, desander/desilter, or even as a primary shaker. When configured as a mud cleaner or desander/desilter, a round desilter manifold and/or a desander manifold is mounted in a cone discharge collection pan installed over the vibrating screen. Underflow from the hydrocyclones is received by the collection pan, which may feed directly to discharge or onto the vibrating screens for additional processing.
Up to twenty 4" hydrocyclones may be mounted on the desilter manifold, producing a maximum capacity of 1600 GPM. A ball-type isolation valve is provided at the inlet of each cone to facilitate individual adjustment, as well as permit routine maintenance without completely shutting down the desilter. For high-wear applications, the cones may be supplied with ceramic a lining.
The desander manifold can accept one, two, or three 10" desander cones. Each 10" hydrocyclone can process 500 GPM at 75-foot of head at the manifold for a total capacity of 1500 GPM.
