Aipu drilling mud agitators used in solids control system are
available at horizontal and vertical type. The shaft and impeller
can be carbon steel or stainless steel type. Per different tank
size and material to be mixed, we'll design agitator with different
motors and shaft size. Mud agitator will be mounted on mud tank.
Almost every compartment will request agitator as a mixer to keep
drilling fluid solids suspension. Except shaker tank, as there is
A mechanical mud agitator is driven by an explosion-proof motor
coupled to a gearbox that drives the impeller & shaft. The
impellers transform mechanical power into fluid circulation or
agitation. The objective is to achieve a uniform suspension of all
Solids control mud agitators are the mud mixers on Mud Tank. Including the horizontal and vertical type. That is meant by
motor mounting direction. Nowadays, more and more users prefer the
helical bevel geared agitator. Why? The helical bevel gear box will
be more stable and reliable than the helical worm and wheel
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.
