Introduction to Mud Agitator and Reference for Selection

The Mud Agitator is an efficient mud mixing machine. Through customized size and configuration, it can meet the requirements of different types of mud tanks. How to choose a suitable model reasonably has become an important factor that technicians have to consider when designing.

The Mud Agitator is fixedly installed on the top of the mud tank, and the stirring rod impeller sinks into the mud. The stirring shaft and the motor are connected through a coupling, and the rated power is from 7.5 hp to 20 hp (5.5kw ~ 15kw). The selection of agitator should consider tank size, depth, and mud parameters. Generally speaking, single-layer impellers are used below 11kw, and double-layer impellers for 11kw and above. It depends on the depth of the slurry tank used on site or customer requirements.

The impeller of the Mud Agitator is fixed on the shaft by bolts to prevent the impeller from rotating and shaking during the mixing process. Normally, the impeller is installed at a height 3/4 times the diameter of the impeller from the bottom of the tank. For example, if the diameter of the impeller is 600mm, the impeller needs to be installed at a height of 450mm from the bottom of the tank. Guanneng Company recommends the use of a vertical impeller when the tank height is less than 1500mm, and an inclined impeller when the tank height is deeper. If a double-layer impeller is used, the vertical impeller is installed at the bottom, and the inclined impeller needs to be installed at 2/3 of the height of the tank bottom.
