1.Use finest screens possible 
Unless specific drilling fluid requirements dictate otherwise, always use the finest screens possible without incurring mud carryover and with the shaker being configured in optimum set-up condition i.e. angle, pool depth etc.
2.Replace Damaged Screens 
Never allow torn screens to be used. As holes appear change and repair out at the first opportunity.
3.Proper Cleaning 
Never clean screens with brushes or sticks. The poor transportation requiring the use of brushes should be addressed at source. Always use appropriate cleaning solution. Never use water with an oil or synthetic based mud.
4.Screen Storage 
Shale shakers are the first and main defense against solids. The screens are fundamental in the operation. Do not store, transport or handle them inappropriately.
5.Correct supervision
Shaker screen can significantly improve solids control efficiency.
6.Never By Pass 
Never by-pass the shaker except in an Emergency.
Ensure the shaker components are in good order; rubber supports, tensioning mounts etc.
Try and run all the same mesh screens on the shaker.
Clean the shale shaker screens at each connection and inspect for damage.
Always clean the screens with appropriate fluid. Never use water with Oil based or synthetic muds.
Avoid using scrapers or brushes to clean off solids.
When signs of screen wear or holes are seen, remove and replace at the first convenient time. Do not tolerate any screen damage.
Repair shaker screens with the appropriate compound. Use an epoxy resin type for Oil and synthetic based muds.
Repair only until 10% mesh area is lost. Discard after this has been reached.
