Mixing technology contains circulating the drilling fluid throgh jet nozzles(mud gun) or impellers(agiatator),are becoming less satisfactory in achieving the desired properties for polmer-based drilling mud. The mixing technique used today are required to better disperse the chemical additives, but be gentle enough to perserve their long polymer chains and chemical structure.The mixing process and apparatus needs to be easily utilized at both on shore fluid mixing plants and at the rig-site. Both process and equipment must be economical,safe and environmentally resposible.
Mud treatment and mixing equipment mainly contain: agitator, mud gun and hopper. They assist solids control equipment deal with mud from drilling hole and add chemical materials in mud.
A few basic items greatly influence the performance of the drilling fluid and ultimate cost of the drilling operations.
