Why use jet mud mixer in solids control system?
In oil and gas drilling jet mud mixer plays a very important role. It is the special equipment to prepare and increase the drilling fluids weight by adding and mixing bentonite, change the fluid density, change the mud density, viscosity, and dehydration. If put the drilling fluid materials and chemical addition agents into the mud tank directly, the materials and agents may precipitate or conglobate. With the device, the materials and agents can be mixed well.
APSLH jet mud mixer is safe and stable and can be moved conveniently. That is used together with the solids control system for onshore offshore drilling and horizontal directional drilling(HDD).

Jet mud mixer includes a centrifugal pump, mud mixing hopper, base, and pipelines.
Centrifugal pump is fixed on the base to mix the drilling mud together with the mud hopper. Centrifugal pump is working by conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. The rotational energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. The fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser or volute chamber (casing), from where it exits.
Mud hopper is used to mix liquid additives into the fluid system. It’s connected with the centrifugal pump by pipelines and fixed on base as well.
Mud hopper can be designed to standard port or dual port. As per clients’ preference the extra port can be right hand or left hand. The table can be rectangle one arround hopper circle or the half rectangle extended from hopper circle one side. Upon different users’ demands, we can make mud hoppers with different materials. AIPU mud hopper with features of compact design, lowest comparable pressure loss, rapid, complete mixing of liquid additives into the solids control system.
