What can Mud mixer do in solid control system2017-04-13
Jet mud mixer(mud mixing hopper) is the equipment to match with the drilling solids control equipments, regularly used to mix and adjust the proportion of drilling fluid, changing the density and viscosity etc.
Jet mud mixer is a unit used together with the solids control system for petroleum drilling and horizontal directional drilling ( HDD ). The unit includes one sand pump, one jet mixing hopper and one jet mixer that are installed at a base with pipe valves. It is safe and stable and can be moved conveniently.
The mud hopper is powered by a centrifugal pump that flows the mud at high velocity through a venturi nozzle (jet) below the conical-shaped hopper. Dry materials are added through the mud hopper to provide dispersion, rapid hydration and uniform mixing. Liquids are sometimes fed into the mud by a hose placed in the hopper.
DC also can assist with properly sizing a hopper to fit your system. There is no reason to be forced to mount the hopper on top of the mud tanks since the jet-venturi allows for convenient location of the hopper. Sizing assistance should be requested when extensive piping or elevation is planned for the downstream side of the hopper.
