The other factor is the size of the particle in the drilling mud fluid to be separated.If you know the particle size,so the shaker screen mesh is determined.What is the shaker screen mesh?

Shaker screen mesh refers to the quantity of hole within per square inch. So the shaker screen mesh has an inverse proportional relation with the hole quantity.

That is to say,the larger the shaker screen mesh,the smaller the screen hole size.Commonly speaking,the relation between them is:

Mesh X Hole Diameter(micron)=15000

For example,if the shaker screen mesh is 200,then we can estimate that the screen hole diameter is about 75 microns.

This is very useful for us to choose proper shale shaker screen according to the mud fluid contents.
