GN Solids Control shipped out 12 sets of new style agitators to offshore drilling platform.
GN Solids Control has been pioneering in the research and development of new technologies and new techniques for better equipment at lower cost.
In recently years GN Solids Control has been releasing new equipment and new system solutions to the market, this new style of mud agitator is one of the new developments.
Mud agitator is one of the most important equipment for oil and gas drilling. It is used for the solids control of drilling fluid for a uniform distribution of mass and the suspended solids particles. It is an effective tool to prevent the settlement of solids in the solids control process for a stable drilling fluid.
Traditional mud agitator used to use worm type gearbox.
This new generation of mud agitator by GN Solids Control uses helical bevel gear which is far more better than the worm type gearbox, with the following unique features:
- It is more efficient
- It is much less noisy
- It is much more stable
- And it last much longer
Also this new generation of mud agitator uses coupling to transmit driving power to the agitator with added protection to the equipment. It also make maintenance easier.
Another feature of the new style agitator is that is uses alloy steel to take heavy load for extended period.
High efficiency is one unique feature of this new style agitator. This is a unique advantage of this new style agitator when the tanks are deep and big. This is an useful feature in many applications. For instance in the dewatering process of hydrovac evacuation slurries, the initial solids content is very high and in field operation it is found that regular mud agitator would not properly stir the mud. When this new style of mud agitators are used, solids suspension is much improved.
