Mud gun is an essential part for drilling mud tanks, it usually works
together with mud agitator/ mud mixer. The 3 main functions including :

(1)  
Mixing, prevent the solids from precipitate, the
necessary working pressure is provided by the mixing pump or mud pump,
sometimes it works together with mud agitator, for example, for mud mixing
tank, mud storage tank; sometimes it works separately when there is no enough
place to install a mud agitator.

(2)  
Transferring, the mud gun line is designed inside
the mud tanks and connect with each tank to transfer the drilling fluids, for
example, it can work as a balance pipe between 2 tanks to keep the mud level
balanced.

(3)  
Cleaning: If connected with clear water pump, it
can be used as mud tank cleaning line after drilling is finished, so you do not
need to buy a separate jet water unit, with the GN unique mud tank bottom
design( with a 5 degree slant), the deposits solids on the tank bottom will be
washed to the side with sand washing port, and the operator can use special
tools to take the sand away.
