1. Mud agitator is based on impeller agitating make solids in drilling fluids suspend to avoid solids subsiding in mud tank.

Mud agitator function

Mud agitator function is to keep drilling fluids stability, mud agitator is used to agitate the mud consecutively and reliably. It is furnished with an up-to-date SEW gear reducer featured by high driving efficiency, compact structure, low noise level, reliable quality and easy maintenance. Therefore, it is a reliable product of agitating the mud.

As part of the solid control system, the agitator is used to agitate the mud to make cuttings, silt and sand along with the mud pass easily the solids control system without being precipitated on the tank bottom. The gear reducer uses Archimedes cylindrical worm drive, the worm is on the left side. The connection between the motor and the gear reducer as well as the reducer output shaft and the agitating shaft is made by using coupling.

2. Mud gun

Mud gun is like an agitator utilizing high speed jet to agitate drilling fluids.

The function of mud gun is to depend on high speed liquid flow from mud gun spray nozzles to impact subsiding solids in mud tank bottom to make them suspend. Meanwhile, when agitator stops working for a long time, subsiding solids will recover impeller and we need to start equipment again. Mud gun can eliminate partial resistance moment in the process of staring agitator. It provides a reliable guarantee for mud agitator normal work.

Mud gun is divided into high pressure and common pressure two types. High pressure mud gun depends on drain branch of drilling pump to supply mud, pressure rating is 1 ~ 6MPa. Common mud gun depend on centrifugal pump to supply mud, pressure rating is 0.2 ~ 0.3MPa. Required actual quantities on mud gun depends on mud agitator using quantities.
