More information about mud pumps:

Mud pumps are used to move heavy mud or sludge. They are used on petroleum drilling rigs to circulate drilling fluid at very high pressure. Smaller versions are used in industrial, construction, and water systems. They are built to handle viscous and often abrasive materials, and many contain an element that crushes up the solids in the fluid into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Mud pumps may be several different types, depending on the application and fluid being pumped. The mud pumps used on drilling rigs usually use reciprocating plunger pumps or piston pumps, with a power source on one side and the fluid on the other. Smaller rigs, which often use centrifugal pumps, may be portable devices that are hooked up to a power source and used to move heavy materials out of a basin, a body of water, or a sewage system. Mud pumps often require a lot of maintenance.
