Mixing pump and hopper will be installed if client require a mud mixing function.
- Mud tank size will be depending on mud storage capacity requirement. The tank size will be from 3000mm long to 12000mm long from mud flow 200gpm to 1000GPM capacity. The tank will be divided into several tank compartment depending on drilling activity and equipments layout.
- Mud agitator will be set on clean mud tank for mud agitating. The correct rotating direction is to pushing mud down. The agitator shaft length will be depending on mud tank depth and impeller size can be changed depending on mud condition and motor size.
