WHAT IS A SUBMERSIBLE MUD PUMP?

A mud pump is a piston driven pump that can produce high-pressure operations to safely transfer high viscosity fluids over an extended depth. Submersible mud pumps are vital in construction, mining and quarrying applications as they allow users to remove water, slurry and sludge. The submersible mud pump has many applications in industrial service, but it has proven to be invaluable in many drilling operations.

FUNCTIONS OF HYUNDAI SUBMERSIBLE MUD PUMPS

Following are some functions of Hyundai’s efficient mud pumps. These include:

  • Automatic air release during priming.
  • Easy inspection of impeller.
  • Excellent, quick, automatic without foot valve up to 8 mtrs.
  • Dynamically balanced rotating parts ensure lesser vibrations.
  • Pumps can be fitted with mechanical seal as per customer’s requirements.
  • Back pull out design, so easy maintenance can be done without disturbing pipe lines.
  • Better efficiency because of good hydraulic design.
  • Less expensive & easily available spares.
  • Very simple construction with only two moving parts.
  • Large diameter solids handled. (up to 60 mm)

HOW IS THE MUD PUMP DESIGNED?

Mud pumps are available in a variety of configurations and sizes. However, mud pumps tend to be one of two main types:  the duplex and the triplex.

The duplex mud pump features two pistons in constant action to move the fluid. The triplex mud pump has all but replaced the duplex version in most applications, although you will still find the latter in use in some smaller countries. The triplex mud pump features a triple piston design that is more efficient than the duplex design.

The latest designs of the mud pump are the quintuplex. As the name suggests, these designs feature five or six pistons in a reciprocating design. Although not in widespread use as compared to the triplex design, these mud pumps spread the pumping action across the rotational cycle, creating less mud noise. This allows for better measurements and logging to take place while in operation.

HOW DO THE SUBMERSIBLE MUD PUMPS WORK?

Rotational power is supplied to the mud pump through an external power source. The power end of the pump converts this rotational energy through a crankshaft to a reciprocating motion that moves the pistons. The pistons move back and forth in their liners, exerting a force on the cylinder chamber. During the retraction of the piston, valves open to allow the fluid to be drawn into the cylinder. Once the piston has fully retracted, it is pushed back into the cylinder.

At this time the intake valves are closed and the exhaust valves open, allowing the piston to force the fluid out of the cylinder under pressure. Once the piston reaches its maximum depth into the cylinder, the exhaust valves close and the process repeats.

PARTS OF THE MUD PUMP

Due to the pressure and material being pumped, most mud pump applications can create a lot of vibration. To combat this, many mud pump applications incorporate pulsation dampeners. These are typically used on both suction and discharge sides of the pump.

In some cases, a positive displacement pump may pull the fluids at a pressure lower than its vapor pressure. When this happens, damaging cavitations can take place. In these cases, a charge pump might be required at the inlet side to maintain a positive pressure on the suction stream.

Pump Parameters

When selecting a mud pump, there are two main parameters to be used, pressure and displacement. Pressure is the net pumping pressure that the pump can safely provide. The requirement for pressure increases as the drilling depth and fluid (or slurry) viscosity increases.

Displacement is the volume of fluid that the pump can transfer within a given time period. In most applications, this is rated as discharged liters per minute.

Applications

Mud pumps are ideal wherever a lot of fluid needs to be pumped under high pressure. They are considered an essential part of most oil well drilling rigs. Mud pumps can deliver high concentration and high viscosity slurry in a stable flow, making them adaptable to many uses.

The price for Hyundai submersible mud pumps is reasonable and allows you to make a purchase without having to put a strain on your pocket. The price ranges between Rs. 35,000- Rs. 45,000, depending on what model you prefer.
