Impeller types of drilling mud agitator2013-08-16
Stir action of drilling mud agitator is produced by moving blade, so the blade shape, size, quantity and rotate speed will affect agitator function.
Common agitator impeller can be roughly divided into four types: paddle-type, open-type, disc turbine and push type.
At present in home and abroad petroleum solids control equipment, the most common used agitator impeller only two types, one is open-type turbine, another is disc turbine. Rarely choose paddle-type and push type. In open-type turbine the used most is flat blade. In disc turbine can use flat blade, rider and backward curved vane.
Because of open-type turbine still has strong fluctuation convection even without baffle, so widely used in advanced drilling mud agitator.
