  • Orbital 3000 Dual

This page shows many beneficial and unique features of VFSI's Orbital 3000 Dual. Take a look and see why VFSI's Orbital 3000 Dual excels in performance, reliability, and durability.

The Orbital 3000 Dual shaker weighs 9500 pounds and is 10’ 6” long and 13’ wide. The vibrators extend another seven inches on each side. The 30-1/2" weir height is one of the lowest in the industry. Weir height for 27-1/2" are available on request, allowing placement on rigs with limited bell nipple-to-pit drop.

The Orbital 3000 Dual uses orbital motion for extended screen life and excellent conveyance. The large screen area of 60 ft2 and high g forces of over 6 g’s result in exceptional performance. Shaker performance can be characterized by the product of screening area and g's. The Orbital 3000 run at 6 g's (7.5 g's optional), provides 360 ft2-g's. This is one of the largest performance ratings in the industry

All baskets are fully seal welded and stress relieved. Seal welding reduces corrosion, adding years to machine life. The Orbital 3000 pretension screening machine requires minimal maintenance, even in oil based muds.

Two layers of powder coat. Baked on zinc-rich epoxy first coat provides corrosion resistance. Final coat provides abrasion resistance. Most fasteners are stainless steel, providing excellent corrosion resistance.

The Orbital 3000 is exceptionally quiet, due to efficient isolation, orbital motion and a sturdy base. With the machine running, it is possible to stand a nickel on edge at each corner of the machine.

The VFSI Orbital 3000 Dual shaker is conveniently arranged to simplify drilling fluids/cement bypass management.
Normal Operation:
In normal drilling operations, the door through the floor pan between the Orbital 3000 baskets returns flow to the sand trap.
Toolbox
Cementing Operation:
Cement is diverted to bypass the Orbital 3000 baskets by installing the floor pan door and the two inner shaker doors. Removing the two cement bypass doors and opening the bypass gate discharges cement to the reserve pit.

Movement of flow is provided by sliding gates on both sides of each basket. Gate hangers are conveniently provided between the two baskets. Gate hangers are also provided on the back side of the possum belly.

 

Toolbox
Single-motion linkage allows the bypass gate to be opened easily and quickly; the handle is visible to flag the operator about gate condition.

The 30-1/2" weir height is one of the lowest in the industry. Weir height for 27-1/2" are available on request, allowing placement on rigs with limited bell nipple-to-pit drop.

 

Toolbox
Stainless steel spring isolators provide superior isolation and corrosion resistance. An Orbital 3000 resting on flat concrete will not “walk”.

 

Toolbox
By adjusting a short pipe within the flow distributor, flow is spread evenly across the basket.

 

Toolbox
The Italvebras vibrators are exceptionally durable. The Italvebras vibrators are capable of delivering 6 g’s of vibration to the Orbital 3000.

 

Toolbox

The angle of the screen basket can be adjusted from 1 to 5 degrees from either side using a hand crank.

 

 

 

Toolbox

An Orbital 3000 Dual simplifies rig moves by allowing the user to simply disconnect the flow line and pick up the shaker by four lift eyes located between the baskets. Due to proper weight distribution, the Orbital 3000 Dual remains level when hoisted.

 

Toolbox

Durable polyurethane wedge blocks hold screens securely in place. Manufactured with a steel insert for increased rigidity.

 

Toolbox
The explosion proof electrical box is powder coated, has an “O” ring seal on the door and rubber boots on the switches. Customer wiring consists of hooking power to the terminal strip.

 

Toolbox
Possumbelly gates are provided to divert flow from each basket. These gates during cementing operations can also be used to keep cement out of the baskets.
