Recently, GN finished the fabrication of almost 60 unit mud agitators and several unit vacuum pumps for a domestic client.

GN mud agitator is flanged connection type with compact structure. It is cost competitive and mostly used in the mud recycling system for mud mixing. In the mud system, mud agitator is installed in mud tank with stirring function to prevent the solid particles settlement down to the tank bottom. Another function is mixing to accelerate the dissolution of the mud materials. The mud agitator is mainly consisting of motor, gearbox, stirring shaft and impeller.

GN complete solids control system is provided with mud agitator, according to the tank depth, GN engineers know how long to design the agitator shaft and single impeller or double impeller needed. To prevent the disturbance of the stirring shaft when agitator is working, GN designs the stabilizer at tank bottom to fix the shaft.

When providing the single mud agitator unit to client, GN always will ask client to provide the inner dimension of the tank and the mud density, so that to propose the mud agitator with right shaft and power. GN is also to provide the mud agitator with motor starter.

GN vacuum pump is especially used for high solid content sludge transferring like drilling cutting from mud system to waste management system. It is fully pneumatic driven type pump that can be used in hazardous area with flammable gas. The vacuum pump is easy for maintenance as there is no any movable part inside the pump cavity. GN has vacuum pump with flow rate of 40, 20 and 10 cubic meter per hour for client to select. For easy and continuous operation, GN vacuum pump can work under automatically mode.
