FM5 Fluid Management
The simplicity of design and multiple configuration options of the FM5 accommodate a variety of setups and make transport easy. With the FM5, "easy" is the operative term. It even has a built-in bag ripper.
Venturi wet hopper allows excellent mixing of fluids; the hopper's steeper sides help speed up mixing cycles.
Narrow tank can be positioned side-by-side with a drill unit on a trailer, making the equipment easy to transport to the jobsite.
Tank's sloping bottom ensures that all drilling fluid flows through the pump and is thoroughly mixed.
Flexible pump mounting offers a variety of setup configurations; pump delivers 160-gpm (606-l/min) flow.
