Frequently Asked Questions: Mud Pumps
A mud pump is a reciprocating pump employed to circulate drilling fluids (mud) at high pressure through a well during drilling operations.
A drilling rig mud pump plays a crucial role in making the entire drilling operation smooth and safe. It is used to circulate drilling fluid or drilling mud into the bore hole to cool, lubricate and clean the drill head as it bores into the ground. The drilling mud is also used in suspension and carrying out of drill cuttings from the drill head as it is brought in and out of the hole. This ensures that the drill does not clog and overheat.
The most widely used mud pumps across the industry are Triplex Reciprocating Pumps. Their application has gained immense popularity with time because they are 30% lighter than duplex reciprocating pumps with relatively less operational cost. Moreover, through these pumps the discharge of mud is smooth and they are capable of moving large volume of mud at higher pressure.
The different parts of a mud pump are Housing itself, Liner with packing, Cover plus packing, Piston and piston rod, Suction valve and discharge valve with their seats, Stuffing box (only in double-acting pumps), Gland (only in double-acting pumps), and Pulsation dampener. A mud pump also includes mud pump liner, mud pump piston, modules, hydraulic seat pullers along with other parts.
The wearing parts of a mud pump should be checked frequently for repairing needs or replacement. The wearing parts include pump casing, bearings, impeller, piston, liner, etc. Advanced anti-wear measures should be taken up to enhance the service life of the wearing parts. This can effectively bring down the project costs and improve production efficiency.
With a simple structure, a mud pump can be easily disassembled and its maintenance can be taken care of. It has a smooth operation, small vibration and low noise. Mud pumps have the capacity to deliver high concentration and high viscosity suspended slurry. The absorption ability of mud pumps is really high, and thus can suck liquid directly without bottom valve.
According to the ‘acting type’, mud pumps can be classified as Single Acting Pumps and Double Acting Pumps. According to the quantity of liners, mud pumps can be categorized into Triplex Reciprocating Pumps (with three pistons) and Duplex Reciprocating Pumps (with two pistons).
Generally, a normal mud pump consists of mainly two sub-assemblies- the Fluid End and the Power End.
A mud pump’s performance can be measured on the basis of two parameters- Displacement and Pressure.
