Mud agitator

Impellers

Impellers are available with flat blades (radial flow), contour blades (axial flow) and canted blades (radial/axial flow). The impellers are sized according to tank volume and expected duty. Active mud system compartments – such as solids removal sections, mud mixing sections and slug pits – which need a higher shear force to produce immediate mixing – are another consideration in impeller sizing.

Shafts

Spirotech offer several types of shafts. Mid steel shafts are cut to length and joined to the gearbox output shaft with a rigid coupling. Solid shafts are keyed at the bottom for adjustment of impeller height. Hollow pipe shafts are available for deep tanks. They are supplied in flanged sections and bolted together making them ideal when lifting height is limited.
