MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer

The high level of safety in today's drilling operations requires special attention to clean work areas and mud exposures. To increase safety and prevent personnel being exposed to mud and chemicals, we have introduced the automatic MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer.

How does MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer increase Safety & Efficiency on your rig?

When handling shale shaker screens, there is always a risk of exposure to the mud and chemicals, during manual cleaning. Special attention to clean work areas and mud exposures is therefore always required.
The RIGTOOLS MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer is a fully enclosed automatic washing system. Mud and cuttings are safely drained to an external waste tank, while vapors exit through an exhaust pipe. This ensures a clean work area and eliminates mud and chemical exposure to the personnel.
Due to the smart design, MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer is easy to install in any shaker room and has a small footprint. Simple adaptation of the wash procedure that is required for the current operation.
The dynamic wash sequence and effective wash pattern provides optimal and gentle cleaning of the screens on both sides, prolonging the lifetime of the screens and making it a highly cost-efficient solution.

Why choose MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer?

The first generation was built in 2013 for Maersk Drilling, covering the need for increased personnel safety. At the time, when handling and cleaning the shaker screens, Shakerhands were exposed to the mud in their everyday work.

Since the first generation was built, the MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer has continuously been optimized, becoming the best solution on the market for cleaning shale shaker screens. The machine has an isolating inner and outer housing and provides 100 % control of critical substances. A special nozzle system creates dynamic impact and provides a consistent and gentle wash sequence. The result is a significantly prolonged screen lifetime and reduction in expenditures on replacement screens.

The drain system was one of the points that RIGTOOLS used a lot of time to improve. By optimizing the wash sequence and making it more turbulent, we have achieved optimal flow through the drain to the waste tank. MONSOON Shaker Screen Washer ensures that the mud and cuttings are safely drained, while vapors leave through an exhaust pipe in the top.

Recommended accessories:

RIGTOOLS Screen Trolley:
Trolley designed to move one or several screens at the time. A screen with mud easily weighs 15-20 kilograms, why Shakerhands are regularly exposed to heavy and unhandy lifting. Simultaneously there is a high risk of exposure of personnel to the mud. RIGTOOLS Screen Trolley reduces the amount of heavy lifting required and helps the Shakerhands keep distance to the mud.
