Drilling fluid weighting agent
BARITE is an high quality drilling grade API 13A spec barium sulphate used to increase density of drilling fluids. It is chemically inert, insoluble and does not react with other drilling fluids.
BARITE is primarily used in mud rotary drilling. BARITE increases mud density to help control formation pressures, stabilise the borehole or used in kill fluids.
• Safe and Easy to use
• Non-toxic and environmentally acceptable
• Is compatible with most other Mudex drilling fluids
Weight up with Barite Kg of Barite/m³ of Fluid =
4200 x (W2– W1)
(4.2 – W2)
W1 = Initial mud weight in specific gravity
W2 = Desired mud weight in specific gravity
Example: The Amount of Barite required to take a Mud Weight from 1.1 to 1.3 is
4200 x (1.3 – 1.1) ÷ (4.2 – 1.3) = 289 kg per 1000 litres
