The new benchmark for separation equipment

The BRANDT™ KING COBRA™ VENOM™ shale shaker basket’s patented Contour Plus™ design reduces the liquid pool depth to provide better conveyance of drilled solids across the screens. Configured for 0° at the feed panel and +5° on the remaining panels, the Contour Plus design minimizes basket angle elevation and achieves drier solids and increased screen life by decreasing the mud pool weight over the screens.

Unlike competitors’ shakers, our Constant-G Control™ (CGC) means the KING COBRA VENOM’s performance actually improves under loaded conditions. CGC is a patented technology that monitors and automatically adjusts motor speed to maintain optimal G-force depending on fluids and solids loading on the basket. Motor speed increases with load, so it’s G-force when you need it, reducing wear and tear on components and screens when loads are light.

With its reduced dimensions and weight, including 34.5-in. (876 mm) weir height with a 12-in. (305 mm) sump/skid, this shaker is able to be installed on a wide range of rigs. Offered with a variety of options that can be ordered initially or installed in the field regardless of original factory configuration, the KING COBRA VENOM shaker provides flexibility to meet changing needs.

VENOM screens eliminate the need for crown rubbers and offer improved solids conveyance and fluid throughput. A rugged and reliable screen wedge system is used to secure the screens. A pneumatic single-point deck-angle adjustment is a standard feature.
