GN Solids Control offer mud agitator various from 5.5kw to 15 kw.
How to choose the right agitator model for your tank?
It depends on following:
1) tank/tank compartment inner dimention,usually, every 3 meters in tank length, there should be an agitator
2) identify voltage & hz of explosion proof motor
3) density & viscosity of fluids
According to tank inner depth.
Shaft Stabilizer for agitator
While tank depth over 8′ , stablizer for agitator shaft is necessary, to fix shaft in tank.
Shaft stabilizer welded on tank bottom.
Impeller diameter various from 20’’ to 52’’,depends on tank dimension.
As suggested by GN Solids Control, for motors below 11kw (5.5kw. 7.5kw), single shaft is ok.
For motors over 11kw (11kw,15kw) single impeller and double impeller both acceptable.
While impeller more then 1 layer, the up impeller mounted near to mud surface, the down impeller mounted to 0.75 times of impeller diameter. Namely, for 20’’ impeller, it should mounted 15’’ above tank bottom.
