GN Solids Control manufactures a full series of solids control product line includes shale shaker, desander, desilter, decanter centrifuge, cuttings dryer and different kinds of pumps. Also GN Solids Control manufactures mud agitators to keep drilling mud from sediment. This week GN Solids Control just finished manufacturing of 20 sets mud agitators with control boxes, they will be shipped to one drilling rig site in Middle East. GN mud agitators can be divided into double impellers type and single impeller type. Usually, for all mud agitators that use motors larger than 15HP should use double impellers while for those smaller than 15HP single impeller might the be best option. GN made mud agitators can be used to keep heavy mud from sediment, a double impeller has better treating performance as two impellers are fixed on different position.
GN mud agitator’s impeller is fixed by bolts on the agitator shaft. Usually, impeller is fixed on the height of three quarters of the shaft length. One quick example if the shaft length is 800mm, than the impeller should be mounted above 600mm of the tank bottom. In order to have a better treating performance, GN Solids Control usually suggests to use a vertical impeller when the tank height is less than 1500 mm while a inclined impeller is better then the tank has larger height. And if double impellers are used, vertical impeller should be fixed on the bottom and inclined impeller is fixed far away from two thirds of the tank bottom. When the agitator shaft length is over 2400 mm, a stabilizer should be welded on the tank bottom to keep the shaft rotating steady. Besides those mud agitators, GN Solids Control also provides control boxes. GN Solids Control is able to manufacture IEC Ex explosion proof or ATEX explosion proof control box that suit for harsh working environment.
