FM5X Fluid Management
With new design features, improved drilling fluid flow, increased durability and faster mixing cycle and yield times, the FM5X will help keep costs down and productivity up.
The FM5X is powered by a 5-hp Honda® engine and equipped with an optional 300-gallon (757-L), 400-gallon (1,514.1-L) or 500-gallon (1,892.7-L) tank to match the needs of smaller diameter, short-distance utility installations jobs. The unit supports JT10 and some JT20 applications.
A high-performance Flomax® pump delivers 160-gpm (606-L/min) of flow, and operates up to 10 percent more efficiently than previous models – all without additional horsepower. Flexible pump mounting offers a variety of setup configurations to meet the needs of small-diameter HDD jobs. A narrow-tank design allows the unit to easily be positioned side-by-side with a drill unit on a trailer for easy jobsite transportation and reduced jobsite costs.
A new wet hopper design increases the venturi inlet from 1.25- to 2-inches - a 60 percent larger opening for material flow and superior fluid mixing. And, steep sides incorporated into the design help speed mixing cycles. Designed with a powder-coated finish, the unit is more durable, economical and resistant to chips, rusting or fading. An updated, internal venturi design optimizes fluid velocity, increasing overall system productivity.
