Mud agitators are fluid mixing equipment that keeps solids in drilling fluid suspending, no deposit in the mud tank bottom. It uses its impeller to agitate and mix the drilling mud to prevent solid particles from depositing in the tank or mud pit.Continue reading “Mud Mixing Agitator Knowledges Assembly”
Generally the mud agitator is a mechanical equipment used to agitate different materials widely used in engineering field. In the offshore plants, it is used to mix both drilling mud and bulk. Drilling muds are of high viscosity fluids that composed with oil or water and bulk. Therefore, it is necessary to predict and understand the stabilized mixing performance of agitator because the accurate material property maintained by agitation is essential to stabilize drilling system.
GearBox is a crucial part of mud agitators. Mud agitators are used in surface mud system to suspend solids and maintain homogeneous mixture throughout the system.
With three types of impellers Aipu mud agitators are available and are sized according to tank volume and expected duty. Active mud system compartments (such as solids removal sections, mud mixing sections and slug pits) need a higher shear blade to produce more immediate mixing. Bulk storage compartments need a low-shear blade that maintains suspension in a gentler manner.
