Drilling Mud Pump Parts for Sale
A Few Facts of Mud Pump Parts
There are three basic different types of drilling mud pumps each with their own unique set of components and parts.
Triplex: This mud pump is used for drilling applications needing high pump pressure. This model works by decreasing the working fluid volume being discharged to generate pressure for producing the flow. There are three pistons in the triplex pump, with the middle piston generating more pressure on the crankshaft. High piston load can lead to excessive pressure and crankshaft failure if the components are not properly sourced.
Quintuplex: Quintuplex mud pump is perfect for pumping fluid at the time of drilling operations. It works as a continuous duty return piston. This is used in terms of its external bearings to provide crankshaft support to ensure the proper functioning of the sheaves.
Duplex: These mud pumps ensure that the mud circulation reaches the well’s bottom from the mud cleaning system. Duplex pumps have binocular floating seals as well as safety valves.

Features of Mud Pump Parts
These pumps can be differentiated into single and double-acting pumps as per the completion time of the suction and drainage action in a cycle of the reciprocal motion of the piston. Mud pumps are available in a variety of sizes, in addition to the types, viz., triplex, duplex or quintuplex. The latest developments are hex pumps with 6 vertical pistons and quintuplex with 5 horizontal plungers.
Parts of a Mud Pump
The fluid end provides valves, liners and pistons for the pumping process. These are high wear items requiring frequent replacement of parts. Severe vibrations caused by the pumping process necessitates a suction and discharge pulsation dampening component. The power end of the mud pump transitions the power of the driveshaft to the piston’s reciprocating motion. Parts of the mud pump include the plunger, piston, modules, housing, cover plus packing, piston rod, suction and discharge valves with their seats, stuffing box, pulsation dampener and glands.
