  • Mud Pump- Working Principle

 

Mud pump is machine which convey drilling mud or water and other flushing fluid during drilling. It used widely mechanical pump in today society and plays an important part in the drilling equipment. It has two main performance parameters namely displacement and pressure. What’s more, its structure is simple and operation is easy. Because of its small size, the transportation and use is very convenient.

Mud pump-working principle
Commonly used mud pump is a piston or plunger.  The pump rotation of the crankshaft driven by power machine. Crankshaft drives the piston or plunger to do reciprocating motion in the pump cylinder through crosshead. Under the action of alternating suction and discharge valve, it achieves the purpose of nipping and circulating fluid.

Mud pump achieves the purpose of cooling the drill bit, and sending and removing the cutting down debris by letting surface flushing medium (Water, mud or polymer fluid) through High-pressure hose taps and drill column, central hole and reach the bottom of the drill bit under certain pressure. According to number of cylinders pump, the mud pump can be divided into Single-cylinder, two-cylinder, triplex and other forms. Mud pump usually used in geological research work and coal mines and other ground engineering. Overall, mud application market is very broad, such as mining, paper, printing and dyeing, environmental protection, graphite, gold, ceramics, oil refining, petrochemical, chemical, farm, salt, iodine field, dyeing, brewing, chemical fertilizer, coking plant, building, gold, mud, sand, mud, dirt pond, sending dirty liquid suction thick paste thick liquid, loading materials and suspended substances in wastewater operations.
