What is solids control?

Solids control is a technique used in a drilling rig to separate the solids in the drilling fluids that are crushed by the drill bits and carried out of the well surface. Normally, a solid control system contains five stages: the mud tank, shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, and centrifuge.

VGP Solids Control is a leading manufacturer for shale shaker screens for shale shakers made by international and regional manufacturers.
