Mud agitator is mainly composed of electric motor, gear box and impeller shaft assy, for shaft- connection type mud agitator, it also have coupler. Elastic coupling connect electric motor input shaft and agitator gear box input shaft. Impeller shaft and agitator gear box output shaft are connected by rigid coupling.
GN agitator gear box is worm gear reducer, which is combined with explosion-proof motor, enable stable performance in wild severe environment.
Rotation of the drive motor is transferred to the impeller shaft through the directly coupled gear drive. The drive is a reduction agitator gear box and is factory assembled to the drive motor. The drive is sized to apply the maximum torque required to produce the design impeller rotation speed of 60 rpm under 50hz, and 72 rpm under 60hz.
The mud agitator stirs a mud slurry to maintain suspension of solids. The agitator is mounted on top of the mud tank and has one or two impeller(s) immersed in the mud slurry. The impeller shaft is directly coupled to an electric drive motor that is available in several horsepower ratings from 7.5 to 25.
Mud agitator design should based on tank dimension, inner depth and mud condition. GN horizontal agitators utilize worm gear drive. Welding type or casting type impeller for option.
GN has 7.5HP,10HP,15HP,20HP mud agitator gear box in stock, welcome to contact us.
