DCJBQ Mud agitator of DC Solid control

Mud agitator is used in the surface mud tank to suspend solids and maintain a homogeneous mixture throughout the mud solids control system. 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.

agitators

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.

We hear the motors vary from each other as well. Such as30 HP motor of 380V/50Hz/3Ph and 4 poles. For mud process, usually we request agitator rotate at 60~70 rpm, thus we’ll find proper gearbox with certain reduction ratio. (Of course, the rated speed was calculated well prior to model selection under torque demand, and so on)

For example, if we require shaft rotates 62 rpm with 1450 rpm motor, then the gearbox reduction ratio should be about 23:1. While if we request shaft rotates 13 rpm with 730 rpm motor, then the reduction box should hold reduction ratio at about 56:1.
