Mud agitator is a
motorized mixer that is installed on the storage tank to keep fluid
consist mixed with additive and avoid separation by gravity.  According to the experience of continues use
on the field, the selection of mud mixer should consider to a few points:

1.   
Rotation speed: Operators it does not want the cuttings in the mixing process
splintered more into smaller debris, so the stirrer speeds cannot be high, the
energizer should choose between 50~60rpm. For more than 60rpm of mud mixer,
recommended the user to take a cautious on the result of the high rotation
speed.

2.   
Sealing: According to the feedback of use from the operator.   As mixing conditions are not ideal, the
drilling fluid mud agitator shaft is not suitable for the use of end face seal,
the general packing seal is also hard to use. At present, the more suitable is
the use of multiple sets of V type packing. It has self sealing performance and
self compensation ability, and long-term maintenance adjustments abilities will
not cause lubricating oil leakage problems.

3.    The impeller:
There is a variety of mud mixer impeller, but it must take consideration
that  a small diameter of the blade with
high speed of mixer motor have the small amount of circulation, shear force,
and therefore does not apply to the use of drilling fluid solid suspension.
Therefore, the diameter of the impeller should be consider larger. Second, pay
attention to the turbine type impeller has been widely used in the drilling
fluid mixer, which is the best open type turbine, because there is no central
disc, not to hinder the mixing of the upper and lower liquid phase of the
impeller.

GN
Solids America LLC manufacture
its own mud agitator and export it to the
world as needed.
