Shaft lengths are customized to suit customer specifications. The keyed motor and driven impeller shafts are rigidly connected by a multi-piece coupling.75. The mud agitator stirs mud slurry to maintain suspension of solids. The impeller shaft is coupled to an electric drive motor with coupling. The impeller is fixed to the shaft with bolts to avoid rotating or sway (connection with key groove optional). Its vertical location on the shaft is determined as a height from the tank bottom corresponding to the impeller diameter times 0.5hp to 20hp (5.
