The oilfield mud tank agitator is configured with an explosion-proof motor, reduction gearbox, impeller, and shaft with assembly bushings. Canted blade impeller are commonly used. Horsepower, mechanical configuration, impeller diameter, number of impeller and shaft length are customized to tank dimensions and maximum mud weights. Here is a list of our recommended configuration.

At the end of 2015, the clients re-placed an order of 20 sets drilling fluid agitators to equipped with their ZJ40 drill rigs. DCSJBQ drilling mud Agitator adopts the blender cycloid speed reducer, and it is applied to the drug liquids mixing tank. This mud agitator has the advantage of compact structure so it occupies small area.

DCSJBQ Series mud agitators serve three purpose:
1. Ensure mud additive are homogeneously mixed, preventing spot over treatment of chemicals, dilution water or weighting agents.
2. Prevents the pits from” gelling”,by keeping the active mud system moving when the mud pumps are disengaged.
3. When drilling with weighted mud, properly sized agitators will keep the weighting agents in suspension, minimizing solids from settling in corners or dead spots of the pit.

DC offers a variety of motor and impeller sizes to fit specific tank configurations. Please tell me your tanks depth and motor power that you need when send inquiries to us.

A mud agitator is mainly used to agitating mud to make it floating. Drilling mud igniter is installed horizontally. Reduction gears are single stage turbine circular- arc cylindrical worm, which can provide high efficiency.

The main structure of mud agitator is the impeller-type which is mainly applied to mix the drilling fluids, so that to avoid the solids deposit on the bottom of the mud tank and enhance the performance of the drilling fluids.

Structure of mud agitator

This mud agitator mainly includes explosion-proof electric motor, speed reducer, foundation support and impeller component. The electric motor and speed reducer, as well as the speed reducer and impeller shaft are all connected by the rigid coupling device. Besides, the impeller is welded on the basis of four vanes.

mud-agitator

Working principle

The impeller agitates the drilling fluids into vortex motion, which offers better mixing effect. The trays are placed among the vanes, which are used to prevent the solids deposit around the vanes when the agitation is stopped. As a result, this reduces the starting resistance that solids bring to vanes, whereby the electric motor is protected against the overloading damage.

Customer must specify the “Tank Depth” in order to properly size the agitator shaft. Note that certified drawings, if requested or required, provided with the equipment will take precedence over any information in this manual. “Tank Depth” is obtained by measuring from the top of the structure (beams, channels, etc.) on which the agitator base will be supported to the bottom of the tank. Shaft length is typically sized to allow 3 inches of clearance from the bottom of the tank to the bottom of the agitator shaft.

A. Lifting the Agitator

Lift the agitator only at the lift points provided. Use properly rated slings capable of handling the weight of the equipment. In most cases, the impeller will be installed after the agitator base has been lifted into the tank but before the base has been securely mounted. If the agitator is lifted with the impeller shaftintalled, make sure that the shaft coupling has been completely tightened and that the shaft is securely attached before lifting. It is always good practice to remove the impeller shaft before removing an existing agitator.

B. Before Installing Mud Agitator

Before installing the agitator, care should be taken to ensure that the structure on which the agitator will be mounted is capable of withstanding both the static load and the dynamic loads that will be transferred to the tank structure.

C. Installing the Agitators 

Typically, the shaft but not the impeller will be installed before lifting the unit into place. Some conditions, like limited head room above the tank, may require that the shaft be installed after the unit has been lifted in place. Anti-seize compound should be applied to all threaded fasteners.

Lift the unit where indicated and place in position on the mud tank using blocks to provide at least 18 inches of clearance between the bottom of the shaft and tank bottom. Before removing the blocks and fastening the base to the tank structure, the impeller must be.

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.
