Tag Archives: Mud Agitator For Sale

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.

The mud agitator is widely used in the ground tank of the drilling fluid. The mechanical mud agitator is made of the drive motor, gear reducer, transmission box output shaft and impeller ect.The appropriate mud agitator can keep all the solid phase particles uniform, if  the shearing action is proper, the performance of the drilling fluid system is all the same and can save power.


The principle of operation

The impeller can stengthen the stirring effect by making vortex of the drilling fluid. The tray installed between the leaf blades can prevent the deposition of the solid particles when the machine stopped, thereby, to reduce the moment of resistance inflicted by the sediment to the impellers when restart the equipment, therefore, to avoid burnout of the machine.

The structure of the mud agitator

The transmission mechanism

The transmission mechanism are mainly made of motor, reducer device, coupling and the mixer shaft, there are a few drilling fluid mud agitators in the solid control equipment. The rotating mechanism of the turbine and the worm is simple, the strong reliability, it is the most popular in the drilling fluid, now the foreign all use the worm and gear to rotate directly.


The impeller is the part of rotation, the structure of the impeller determines the function of the impeller, the sharps of the different liquid storage tanks are different, we select the different impellers according to the experiences and customs. The reasonable method is according to the mixing purpose and the formation of flow state to select .

The mixer shaft

The mixer shaft is the structure of lifting, in the process of the drilling fluid, the agitator can’t stop. There are some causes in the practical work, so usually it can’t reach the
Requirement. After the agitator stoped, because the tank has desilting, the serous tables are buried in the desilting, it is very difficult to start. The blades are often breaked and the motor is often burning loss.

DC Solids Control as a professional manufacturer for soilds control equipments, we have designed lots of high-quality products, and JBQ series Agitator is one of them. To keep both the mud uniformity and the suspension of solids, the mud agitator is used to agitate the mud consecutively and reliably.This agitator agitates the mud to make cuttings, silt and sand pass the solids control system without being precipitated onto the tank bottom. Due to the simplex turbine decelerator, this product is featured by compact construction, light weight, balanced transmission, low noise, high efficiency of transmission and strong agitating power. Therefore, it is a reliable product in the solids control system.
