Mud Agitator is widely used in the mud solids control system. It is installed in slurry storage tanks or mud tanks to stir slurry/mud to prevent drilling fluid solid particles depositing in the mud tank.

Mud Agitator mainly consists of motor, reducer, base, stir rod and impellers. Mud Agitators mix and agitate the drilling mud that is used to prevent solid particles from depositing in the circular tank. This is also used to stabilize the work of drilling fluid. The Impeller shaft present in the mechanical Agitator transforms mechanical power into fluid circulation.

The Mud Agitator can be obtained from the Mud Agitator Manufacturer in China and are generally available in horsepower such as 5HP, 7.5HP, 10HP, 15HP, 20HP, 25HP and 30HP.

Features of Mud Agitators:
Low profile design to allow for positioning mud conditioning equipment over mud tanks. (Maximum overall height above tanks is 16 inches.)
Oversized shaft bearings are used for longer gearbox life and lower maintenance requirements.
Simple mounting. Agitator base rests on tanks structural cross beams held by six bolts.
All internal shafts are heat treated and ground for high loading capacity. No grease fittings.

Drilling mud agitator is a device mounted on mud tank for agitating the drilling mud to prevent the drilled cuttings and fine solids from sedimentation. Nearly every large compartment of mud mixing and storage tank should be equipped with mud agitators to maintain the proper properties of drilling mud that will pump back to the borehole.


Mud Agitator combines compact design with high torque performance levels necessary for a uniformly suspended flow of drilled solids throughout the mud systems.Powered by 1500RPM (4 pole) explosion proof motor and connected through heavy duty gear reducer, this agitator transfers high torque at RPM to Impeller to perform the most severe mud mixing conditions.

Impellers are available in three types viz. six blade mixed flow turbine type, four blade axial flow type and three blade twisted profile type to achieve highest performance in different site and mud conditions.

Gear reducers are worm type or helibevel type depending on the choice of the user. Standard models are available in 20 H.P. & 10 H.P. capacity.

Please contact DC Solid control company representative with your tank dimensions and maximum mud weights for the correct agitator model, horsepower, impeller (size, type and quantity), and shaft length to meet your requirements.

A mud agitator, as a part of the mud purification system, is designed to mix mud so that the drilling cuttings and mud & sand in a mud tank do not deposit at the bottom to successfully get through the purification system, with the main function of mixing the drilling cuttings evenly in the mud.

Mud agitator is part of the drilling fluids solids control equipment, which is mainly used to agitate and mix the drilling mud to prevent solids particles from depositing in the circulating tank and to stabilize the performance of drilling fluids. High Efficiency Mud Agitators range from 3hp to 20hp and are standard off the shelf units.

All DC Solid control mud agitators feature a brand motor coupled to a mud agitator rugged oilfield gearbox, which eliminates misalignment and troublesome couplings. This configuration promotes longer motor and gearbox bearing life. This highly efficient gearbox offers a 95% power transfer, which is approximately 30% more than a worm drive gearbox.

Explosion-proof motor of mud agitator:

The motors DC Solids Control used is brand motors in China, and as you required, we choose different types of motors for the agitator.

Shaft of mud agitators:

Manufactured of solid, mild steel bar, the shaft is coupled to the gear reduction assembly with a rigid coupling. All shafts are keyed at the bottom for adjusting the height of the impeller. Depending on the model, shaft diameters range from 1 3/4 to 3 1/2 inches. agitator impeller Shaft length is determined by tank depth and should be carefully reviewed before ordering.

Impeller of mud agitators:

Impellers range in size from 24″ to 52″ and can displace over 18,000 gpm. The canted blade impeller , used in tanks deeper than five feet, promotes axial as well as radial flow.

7.5 kW above mud agitator using turbine worm reduction drive, has the transmission torque, smooth operation, reliable work, etc advantages. DC give full consideration to improve the mud agitator performance, through a large number of application based on the practice of developed, high efficiency, stirring intensity big, maintenance convenient highly competitiveness in the market of mud agitator.

A Mud Agitator is used in surface mud systems to suspend solids and maintain homogeneous mixture throughout the system. A mechanical agitator is driven by an explosion-proof motor, coupled to a gear box that drives the impeller shaft. The impellers (turbines) transform mechanical power into fluid circulation or agitation.

DC manufacturers JBQ series Mud Agitator is relatively low shear and low energy device, so it is easy to operate and inexpensive to maintain. This will ensure that mud additives are homogeneously mixed to prevent dead spots. Agitators will keep the active mud system flowing even when the pumps are disengaged and keep the weighting agents in suspension.

Characteristics of DC Mud agitators:
- Compact design.
- Durable, single reduction worm gear drive.
- Fewer moving parts, easy installation and less maintenance.
- Explosion proof electrical system.
- 50% better shock resistance than helical and bevel gears.
