As we know, solids control equipment is used in drilling mud purification system that includes many equipments, such as shale shaker, mud cleaner, centrifuge, pump, mud agitator, etc. But the centrifugal pump is one of the most widely used pumps in drilling mud system. This type of pump can move high volumes of liquid in a relatively efficient manner. This pump is very dependable, has relatively low maintenance requirements, and can be constructed out of a wide variety of materials. It is an indispensable equipment and plays a critical role in the whole drilling mud system.
The function of centrifugal pump
Drilling mud is a kind of suspension that contains a large number of solids particles and various chemical additive, and we usually use centrifugal pump to transport drilling mud also as feeding pump for desander, desilter, or as mixing pump for jet mud mixer. Drilling fluids centrifugal pump has a big difference in the solids control system. It can also be utilized as trip pump and supercharging pump.
A centrifugal pump is a pump that consists of a fixed impeller on a rotating shaft that is enclosed in a casing, with an inlet and a discharge connection. As the rotating impeller swirls the liquid around, centrifugal force builds up enough pressure to force the water through the discharge outlet.
