Shale shakers separate coarse solid particles from drilling muds in well bore-hole drilling operations. Drilling muds are engineered with rheological properties needed for efficient transport of coarse solid particles generated by the drill cutting into the soil and rock.  Experimental measurements on full scale equipment are difficult, expensive, and inconvenient.

 In this work experimental measurements are taken from a bench scale shale shaker.  Experimental results show the effects of vibration frequency and amplitude, deck angle, mud flow rate, and mud concentration.  Experimental results are compared with a shale shaker model.
