WATCH: HDI Lucas uses shale shaker

A National Oilwell Varco VMS300 has been used on an HDI Lucas project to remove large solids from the drilling fluid.

The video was shared on HDI Lucas’ social media, which said the National Oilwell Varco (NOV) VSM300 was running well while taking its first cut on the pipe-side of the project.

NOV said its BRANDT VSM 300 shale shaker delivers a dramatic increase in capacity through unique vibratory motion and screen deck layouts.

“As the world’s first balanced, elliptical-motion, low-profile cascade shaker, VSM 300’s use of integral secondary drying technology demonstrates our commitment to delivering cost-effective, environmentally responsible solutions to the oil industry,” said NOV.

The machine is simple to operate with minimal maintenance required and screen changing carried out in only a few minutes by a single operator.

HDI Lucas is an expert in horizontal directional drilling owed to its decades of experience in thousands of projects throughout Australasia and around the world.
