Drilling fluids mixing hopper is at the last end of drilling fluids recycling loop system.

It is usually matched with centrifugal pump or shear pump..

Function of drilling fluids mixing hopper:

The unit is used to make up drilling fluid or increase total amount of the drilling fluid, change the fluid density, viscosity, and dehydration. When making up again, put the materials of drilling fluid (such as betonies and barite powder) and corresponding chemical additives (such as polymer) into the recycle tank through the jet unit.

A common type of liquid-mud plant is actually a series of VFD decanting centrifuge and feeding pump. Before go into decanting centrifuge, the useful drilling fluid go through flocculation system for treatment. Fine solids can be polymerized into larger size for an easy separation.
