Mud agitator is usually applied to the drug liquids mixing tank to keep mud uniformity. Due to the simplex turbine decelerator, the agitator is featured by compact construction, light weight, low noise and strong agitating power. Now let me introduce the mud agitator.

How it works?

Mud agitator produces powerful, sequentially timed pulsed of compressed air to generate large bubbles at the bottom of the mud holding tank. The rising air bubbles create immediate vertical circulation of the drilling mud and stirs the entire mud tank from the bottom up. Accumulator plates are attached to the mud tank bottom and introduce the compress air bubble. The burst of compressed air from underneath the plate scours the drilling mud tank bottom and efficiently lifts solids and heavier liquids up into the tank. This “bottom-up” vertical mixing process keeps solids is suspension, ensures uniform mud consistency and level in the tank.

Why agitate used in solid control system ?

Ensure uniform density and reduces sag.
Increase Rate of Penetration (ROP).
Minimize formation damage.
Keeps solid materials in suspension.
Uses less energy than mechanical mixers.
Reduce solids in drilling mud.
Helps scour the tank bottom during cleaning.

How to select Mud agitators?

Several factors must be considered in the selection of an agitator in order for it to perform effectively:
Tank dimensions, width, length, and depth where compartmentalized compartment dimensions.
Ratio of impeller diameter to tank width. For optimum performance this ratio should be in the range of +/-0.3.
Mud Weight. The maximum anticipated mud weight; if unknown use a weight of 20 PPG.
Rig Power. The voltage and frequency (HZ) to be supplied to the agitators.
