Drilling mud agitator is one part of solids control system with the purpose of mixing drilling mud and make sure drilling cuttings do
not deposit at the bottom of the tank and successfully pass through circulation system.

Mud agitator has the advantage of compact structure, so it occupies small area. More than 7.5 kW Mud Agitator uses the turbo and worm
gear speed reducer, with the large torque transmission、 the revolution is steady、it works reliablely and has great merit. Common
model of mud agitator is JBQ5.5kW 、JBQ7.5kW 、JBQ11kW and JBQ15kW.

Mud Agitator Features and Benefits
1. Structure: Small footprint and compact structure.
2. Reduction gearbox: Helical-bevel design or worm design according to customer requirement.
3. Motor: Explosion-proof electrical motor, and can be the style of horizontal or vertical.
4. Shaft and impeller: Galvanizing treatment brings the excellent anti-rust performance much better than the painting process.

JBQ Mud agitator can be used widely in various applications. Including drilling mud mixture, chemical agitating, food or beverage,
etc. It will be mounted on mud tanks or set right overmud pit. Welcome to your inquiry.

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. Below is the more feature of DC Solid control mud agitators.


Structure features of drilling mud agitator

1. Helical-bevel gearbox.
2. Explosion-proof electric motor.
3. Mud agitator has vertical and horizontal type.
4. Power available ranging from 2.2 to 22KW. Motor placed in a horizontal position, installation, adjustment, easy to change.
5. Compact,quiet,smooth and easy to maintain.


Design features of drilling fluid agitators 

1. Agitator features a rugged cast iron gearbox that houses helical bevel gearing. The gear sets are precisely ground to prevent all but the slightest amount of backlash in the gear sets. This feature promotes longer life by eliminating the high impact forces generated when the unit is energized at start-up.
2. Internal gears and bearings are lubricated with mineral oil. When the ambient temperature drops below 23ºF or rises above 140ºF, a synthetic lubricant should be substituted.
3. A unique feature of the Agitator is the lower bearing, which can be maintained from the top of the tank.
4. An external oil sight glass has been provided, so the oil level can be checked at a glance.
5. Vent plugs are supplied and installed in the gearbox housing to maintain a homeostatic internal pressure, which prevents a pressure build-up that could blow out an oil seal.

DC solid control also can provide the different length shaft and impeller of mud agitators, and accept the client’s customized requirements.

The agitator is an important part of the mud solids control system. It is mounted on the circulating tank. The vanes of the agitator dip into the mud to agitate the fluid uniformly.To keep both the mud uniformity and the suspension of solids, the mud agitator is used to agitate the mud consecutively and reliably. Below is the specification manual of agitators:


This manual contains important information concerning installation, operation, and proper maintenance of the Mud Agitator. To prevent injury to personnel or equipment damage, this manual should be read by those responsible for the installation and operation of the Mud Agitators.

In addition, the safety precautions below should be followed at all times.

1.Lift the agitator only at lift points detailed in this manual and use properly rated slings capable of handling the equipment weight.
2.The structure on which the agitator is to be installed must be capable of supporting both the static weight and dynamic loads listed in this manual.

3.TURN OFF, LOCK OUT, AND TAG OUT the electrical power supply to the agitator before working on the agitator.
4. Inspect the unit regularly, and replace damaged or worn components only with parts supplied by the original equipment manufacturer.
5. The gearbox on the Agitator has a pre-selected gear ratio to maximize the suspension of solids in solution. This gear ratio provides a great increase in torque that is transmitted to the impeller. Any object that might fall into or be placed in the mud tank runs the risk of being caught by and wrapped up by the agitator.
6. Before entering a mud tank for any reason, the mud agitators should be locked out and tagged out.


DC JBQ Series 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 fluid.

It is composed of explosion-proof motor, speed reducer, motor base and blade. The motor and speed reducer, speed reducer and impeller shaft are connected by steel coupling. The impeller is welded with four blades.

Please contact a DC Equipment 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.
