Alpha Shaker

Drier cuttings. Higher flow capacity. Lower costs. Let’s get to work.


Everyone thinks they’re the top dog until they meet the Alpha.

The Brandt Alpha™ shaker can process the highest flow of any single-deck shale shaker. Following more than two years of design and testing, including taking customer input, we developed a precision design that delivers optimal enhanced linear motion. This shale shaker is able to process more fluid, get drier cuttings and help reduce your operational drilling costs. Designed from the ground up and with the rig hand in mind, the BRANDT™ Alpha™ shaker features a robust, yet simple screen clamping system, enhanced linear motion, with significantly higher handling capacities. More non-blanked open area (NBOA) produces considerably drier cuttings – all designed to lower your operation’s carbon footprint without compromising performance.

We are the movers behind the shakers.

For over 50 years we have designed, manufactured, and offered the renowned BRANDT solids control and waste management product lines. For the past 25 years the King Cobra family of shakers has become synonymous with performance and durability and the Alpha begins the next evolution in shaker performance.

We don’t follow the pack. We lead.

We are confidently leading the industry with the next evolution of the shale shaker. NOV's Alpha Shaker delivers drier cuttings, keeping drilling fluid in the well and reducing the new fluid needed to get the job done. All the benefits – none of the sacrifices.


For existing NOV customers considering switching out their current shaker system, the Alpha Shaker easily retrofits into most other NOV King Cobra shaker skids in one day-and without the need for hazardous hot work.
