GN can produce 4 inch mud hopper(500x500mm), 6 inch mud hopper(600x600mm,750x750mm), usually we assembly the mixing pump and mud hopper together as a jet mixing unit. It is widely used in our HDD system. A butterfly valve is incorporated in the neck of the hopper to adjust flow and to close off the hopper after use.
Mud hopper usually used in mud mixing pump, High shearing mixer. Or as separated device matched with pump for bentonite configuration and mixing in mud mixing system. The working condition of mud hopper usually is mud density 1.5~2.8g/cm3, while mud viscosity is 60~120s. This is usual working condition to provide better performance as well as longer use life to save total cost on drilling.
GN mud mixing hopper are widely used in HDD(horizontal directional drilling) and oil gas drilling for bentonite mixing.Mud Mixing unit is combination of drilling mud hopper and centrifugal pumps,it’s mixing force comes from the centrifugal pump.
