What factors should we pay attention to when choosing a mud agitator

There are generally several types of mud agitators, including direct-connected mud agitators, helical gear agitator and vertical mud agitators. Drilling fluid agitators are important equipment of the drilling fluid tank solids control system and are mainly used for mixing and mixing of drilling fluids. So what should we pay attention to when choosing a mud mixer?

1. Impeller speed:

Since the drill cuttings are not expected to be further pulverized during the mixing process, the rotation speed of the agitator used should not be too high, and the strength should be selected between 50 and 60 rpm. For mud mixers exceeding 60 rpm, users are advised to be cautious.

2. Motor power:

At present, there are agitators with 5.5kw, 7.5kw and 11KW motor power commonly used in the market. The guiding ideology of its design is that it can still be started after the impeller is shut down and buried by the grit. Therefore, a suitable motor power matching should be selected. The motor power of the mud agitator produced by our company is 5.5KW, 7.5KW, 11KW, 15KW, 18.5KW, 22KW. It can also be customized according to customer requirements.

3. The sealing problem of the agitator:

According to the existing experience, it is not suitable to use the end face seal for the shaft of the drilling fluid agitator due to the very bad working conditions, and it is also difficult to adapt to the general packing seal. At present, the more successful is the use of multiple sets of V-shaped packing, which has self-sealing performance and self-rewarding ability, and will not cause lubricant leakage problems without maintenance or adjustment for a long time.

4. The choice of agitator impeller:

There are many types of mud agitator impellers, but it must be noted that a small-diameter blade, high-speed mud agitator must have a small circulation volume and a large shear force, so it is not suitable for the purpose of solid-phase suspension of drilling fluid. Therefore, the impeller diameter should generally be larger.

Secondly, the turbine-type impeller that needs attention has been widely used in drilling fluid agitators, of which the open-type turbine type is good. Since there is no middle disc part, it will not hinder the convective mixing of the upper and lower liquid phases of the blade.

What factors should we pay attention to when choosing a mud agitator? The above four factors are what we need to consider when choosing a mixer. The mud mixer is one of the main equipment in the solids control system, so the choice of agitator should be regular produced by the manufacturer. Xi'an HL produces various agitators, which can also be customized according to customer needs, welcome to send inquiry to us: sales@hlsolidscontrol.com if you want to know more about it.
