What are the functions and principles of the mud mixing funnel?

To configure or increase the total amount of drilling fluid, change the density, viscosity and water loss of the drilling fluid, etc., it is necessary to put the drilling fluid materials (bentonite, barite powder) and corresponding chemical additives (polymers, etc.) 

A large amount of precipitation or lumps are caused, and good mixing cannot be obtained, so a mixing device is required. The mixing funnel is set up for adding these materials.

The mixing funnel can be divided into jet mixing funnel and swirl mixing funnel according to its mixing principle. The jet mixing funnel is designed according to the jet principle; the swirl mixing funnel is designed according to the centrifugal swirl mixing principle. 

The jet mixing funnel is mostly used on site, and it can also be mixed with a drilling pump. Therefore, it can be applied to medium-pressure operations. The swirl mixing funnel can only be used for low pressure mixing.
