The Structure Of Drilling Horizontal Mud Agitator

2017-03-07
Mud agitators are highly efficient mud mixing units offered in a wide variety of custom sizes and configurations to accommodate virtually any mud tank. 

Mud agitators stir a mud slurry to maintain suspension of solids. The agitator is mounted on top of the mud tank and has one or two impellers immersed in the mud slurry. The impeller shaft is directly coupled to an electric drive motor that is available in many different horsepower ratings from 3hp (50Hz only) to 30hp (60Hz).


Each Mud agitator is designed for the specific application, taking into account parameters such as tank size, tank depth and mud characteristics. For vertical configurations the drive motor rotates the impeller shaft through an all helical gear drive. 

For horizontal designs the motor is connected through a combination of helical and bevel gears. Both designs permit mounting of one or two impellers having either straight or canted blades.

DC Machinery also can designed according to users request, so please don't hesitate to contact us once you have interest with it.
