Vermeer's new SA400 mud pump continuously delivers drilling-fluid flow at any pump speed during drill operations. With the addition of the 350-hp SA400, Vermeer now offers pipeline contractors a one-stop shop for major components of drilling operations for pipeline installation -- maxi horizontal directional drills, reclaimers, and now mud pumps. The pump features a clutch with a continuous duty throw-out bearing to allow extended idle while in neutral, and a suction inlet valve to suspend charged flow during drill rod makeup and breakout.
