Mud agitator is another equipment popular in drilling fluids
system. There is horizontal type and vertical type agitator. We
call agitator as mud mixer or drilling fluid mixing equipment.
A mechanical agitator used in oil well drilling 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.
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.
Aipu manufacture mud agitator with worm and wheel gearbox, also the agitator with helical bevel
gear box. The high performance, efficiency, and quality is
appreciated much among clients. Helical bevel geared agitator will
transfer more efficient to shaft save more energy than common worm
and wheel gearbox. No matter for horizontal or vertical agitator,
there is helical bevel gearbox available.
