Jet mud mixer is used to make and mix drilling fluid to change the density and viscosity. Mud Mixing Hopper can do the fluid weighting and mixing for solids control system used in 1500m-9000m drilling. Jet mud mixer is a unit used together with the solids control system for petroleum drilling and horizontal directional drilling(HDD).
Structure of jet mud mixer
Jet Mud Mixer consists of one centrifugal pump(45kw or 55kw), one feeding hopper and one jet mixer. Generally, there are still pipes and valves connecting all these parts, the mud hopper matched on the jet mud mixer always 4“and 6”.
Unique features of jet mud mixer
1. The weighting hopper can be combined with a pump or be used independently with manifold valves with pump.
2. Put the drilling fluid materials (bentonites, barite powder) and the corresponding chemical additives (polymer) into circulating tank for increasing the total.
3. Jet mud mixer can increase the liquid in the tube shear force, improve the dispersion effect and the mixing liquid pressure head, so that the material in the tank can be fully mixed, then make better effect when it's used with shear pump.
Besides the installation for the mixing pump and hoppers are flexible, either on a single skid or at tank end skid or even separately with hopper on tank top, and pump at tank side. All flexible design is to make the complete mud system to be compact and user friendly.
