Mud agitator Manufacturer in Argentina

This week GN shipped several sets of stainless steel mud agitators to Algeria. Normally our agitator material is carbon steel, but sometimes we can make customized equipments, such as customized shaft length, impeller diameter, impeller thickness, material, etc.

A mud agitator is used in surface mud systems to suspend solids and maintain homogeneous mixture throughout the system. A mechanical agitator is driven by an explosion-proof motor, coupled to a gear box that drives the impeller shaft. The impellers (turbines) transform mechanical power into fluid circulation or agitation. The objective is to obtain a uniform suspension of all solids.

Derrick mud agitator

All Derrick agitators feature a “C” face motor coupled to a rugged oilfield gearbox, which

eliminates misalignment and troublesome couplings. This configuration promotes longer motor and gearbox bearing life. Derrick uses a Helical-Bevel gear unit to turn the impeller.

This highly efficient gearbox offers a 95% power transfer, which is approximately 30% more than a worm drive gearbox. Helical-Bevel gearboxes are preferred over worm gear arrangements because of their power efficiency, reliability, and lower operating temperatures.

Operating at a noise level of less than 75 dBA Derrick agitators are significantly quieter than the industry standard of 90 dBA.

The Derrick agitator is available in both horizontal (model DE-AG-H) and vertical (model DE-AG-V) configurations – sizes range from 5 to 30 HP. Derrick agitators carry a two year warranty.

GN have sold many sets of agitators in Argentina, also with desander, desilter, mud gas separator, flare ignition device,etc solids control equipments.
