Mud agitator is one of the important equipment for drilling mud system. It is mainly used for agitating drilling fluids, avoid particle in fluids deposit to tank bottom. It is high-efficiency mud-mixing units offered in a wide array of custom sizes and configurations to accommodate virtually any mud tank. The horizontal drive is designed for installations having limited space above the mud tank.
The mud agitator stirs 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 several horsepower ratings from 7.5 to 25.
Mud agitator design should based on tank dimension, inner depth and mud condition. Horizontal agitators utilize worm gear drive. Welding type or casting type impeller for option. Its vertical location on the shaft is determined as a height from the tank bottom corresponding to the impeller diameter times 0.75.
DC mud agitator is made of explosion-proof motor, worm gear reducer, impeller, mounting plate, elastic coupling, and rigid coupling. Explosion-proof motor and worm gear reducer installed on mounting plate. Elastic coupling connect explosion-proof motor input shaft and gearbox input shaft. Impeller shaft and gearbox output shaft are connected by rigid coupling.
DC Machinery as a professional manufacturer for solid control equipments, we have designed lots of high-quality products, and JBQ series Agitator is one of them. To keep both the mud uniformity and the suspension of solids, the mud agitator is used to agitate the mud consecutively and reliably.
Due to the simplex turbine decelerator, this product is featured by compact construction, light weight, balanced transmission, low noise, high efficiency of transmission and strong agitating power. Therefore, it is a reliable product in the solids control system.
