VSM shaker advantages have two configurations including the direct heating and indirect heating retorting systems. To be more specific, in a directly heated retort, the VSM shaker advantages lie in the heat carrier gas that is generated by burning recycled gas so that the retorted shale in the lower portion of the VSM shaker vessel can be made full use of. The indirectly VSM shaker advantages heated configuration has a similar mechanical design but make use of an external furnace to heat the carrier gas and does not burn the VSM shaker advantages retorted shale. It is similar to the previous VSM shaker advantages retort that is introduced in the 1970s in the pilot plant as well as semi-works plant that is built in Colorado. The semi-works VSM shaker advantages plant has been used to make additives for asphalt and to process oil shale from different countries, such as Morocco, Australia, and the United States thanks to the VSM shaker advantages. Although the VSM shaker advantages technology has not been demonstrated at the commercial scale at large, it has been used in extended operations with the help of a great deal of oil shale from several countries for more than twenty years.
A detailed engineering design study of Mud agitator advantages has been completed for the retorting section of a commercial plant that would use the VSM shaker advantages technology. A preliminary design for a commercial VSM shaker advantages mine and the balance of the processing VSM shaker advantages plant have also been completed. These are important steps towards preparing VSM shaker advantages the technology for commercial application. However, the project still needs to be carried out in practice when the oil shale is heated underground due to VSM shaker advantages. In some cases, the oil is drawn to the surface through wells thanks to VSM shaker advantages, which may fracture the oil shale or drill boreholes into it so as to accelerate the rate of heating. Some of the shale has to break the rest in the retort process due to the broken VSM shaker material underground as well as VSM shaker advantages. The oil drilling processing has been widely tested in 1970s and 1980s and the results are not only consistent but also encouraging. The most advanced VSM shaker advantages involves drilling holes into the oil shale, inserting heaters, and gradually heating the entire zone to retorting temperatures inside the VSM shaker. Oil and gas are drawn to the surface for VSM shaker advantages and shell can make use of a wall of ice to exclude the ground water from the zone to be retorted in an efficient manner.
