PYRAMID® AND PYRAMID PLUS SCREENS (PMD® & PMD+)

Derrick has revolutionized screening technology with the patented Pyramid® (PMD®) and Pyramid Plus™ (PMD+™) screens. These revolutionary three-dimensional screens offer the benefits of traditional flat multi-layered screens while adding a significant increase in usable screen area. The result is a screen that increases fluid handling capacity. Pyramid and Pyramid Plus screens provide an easy, cost effective increase in shaker performance. Designed with the latest technology, Pyramid screens allow rigs to screen finer earlier in the drilling process, thus significantly reducing mud and disposal costs. All Derrick screens are API RP 13C compliant.

  • Increased Shaker Capacity
  • Makes Fine Separations
  • Fits Existing Shakers
  • Screen Finer Faster
  • Drier Cuttings

SCREEN SHAPE AND CONDUCTANCE

ENHANCED PERMEABILITY

Gravity and vibration force the solids into the corrugated screen’s troughs,
thus allowing more fluid to pass through the top of the screen.

Corrugated Pyramid Screen Enhanced Permeability

Conventional Flat Screen Solids Impede Fluid Flow

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Compared to the PWP, Pyramid and Pyramid Plus screens increase the total amount of usable API non-blanked screen area by 105% and 184% on a Derrick FLC 514 shaker. Fluid-handling capacity is increased up to 125%.
  • Pyramid and Pyramid Plus screens are capable of making separations as fine as 40 microns.
  • Pyramid screens fit all Derrick shakers, thus allowing for the most efficient use of existing equipment. There is no need to modify or replace the existing shaker.
  • Utilizing Pyramid or Pyramid Plus screens enable shakers to screen 1 to 2 API sizes finer than traditional perforated plate flat screen panels. This maximizes the solids removal efficiency of the shaker.
  • Pyramid screens minimize fluid loss by dispersing thinner layers of fluid over an increased screen area, resulting in a more effective and faster drying capability.
