MAX2000 Mud Hoppers
The MAX2000® 6" Mud Hopper by PSI is a rugged low-pressure, high-volume unit that makes it easy to accurately mix solid additives into drilling fluids. Driven at 40-60 PSI by the mud system’s centrifugal pumps, drilling fluid is forced through the hopper jet at a rate of 1100-1400 GPM. An integrated sack table gives handlers a safe, stable platform for easier pours into the hopper’s receiving basin. A 6" butterfly valve allows adjustable feed rates of 400-600 lbs of solids per minute.
The MAX2000® Mud Hopper and base plate are constructed of high quality plate steel. All surfaces are painted with industrial-grade epoxy to resist wear and corrosion. A second coat of UV-resistant polyurethane is then added in the color of your choice. The unit is delivered fully assembled with sack table, receiving basin, jet nozzle, venturi and adjusting valve for a quick and easy installation.
