mixing unit and the hanging device.

The mixing pump for mud hopper is 45kw with
3000-2000 l/min. Normally, it is 1 ea mixing pump is with 1 ea mixing hopper.
Why there are 2 mud hoppers but only 1 ea mixing pump?

As the polymers are in big bags, they need
to hang the polymers bag on top of the mixing hopper when they want to mix
polymers. But they do not want to remove the polymer bag then when want to add
other chemicals to the mud mixing
. In this case, they request an extra mud hopper. When they want to
add other chemicals, they can close the polymers mixing hopper, and use the
backup hopper.
