The site operation demand of drilling mud guns


A mud gun is a device used to agitate drilling mud on a drilling rig. More of a nozzle than a gun, a mud gun is connected to a pump to circulate the drilling mud and prevent the solids from settling in the mud tank.

The mud gun in the mud system is also used for transfer mud from compartment to compartment, like for trip tank compartment. DC Mud Guns are available for rotation adjustment to allow the operator to optimize the mud guns performance. The replaceable wear resistant jet nozzle is used, which is special design with better shearing.

The mud guns are used mainly in the corners of the mud-tanks to avoid the setting of solids. By rotating the wide angle, the mud can be adjusted according to the need. The jet nozzle used in the mud gun, is both wearable and replaceable. The tool is also used to shift the drilling fluids from one compartment to another such as for trip tank compartment.

It is used along with a mud agitator which is placed in the middle of tank whereas the mud gun is kept in the corner of a tank.
