O-Barite Powder

Description

 

O-Barite Powder is ground barium sulfate, working as the weighting agent for drilling fluids. The high purity and high specific gravity O-Barite provides excellent corrosion resistance, as well as low abrasion, thus not damaging the drilling equipment and not reacting with the drilling fluids. The O-Barite is used to increase densities of oil-based and water-based drilling fluids to 2400 Kg/m3.

 

Physical and Chemical Specification

 

Density(g/cm3):    4.20

Finess (wt %):  

      Residue greater than 75 micrometers 3.0

      Particles less than 6 micrometers in equivalent spherical diameter 30

 Water soluble Alkaline Earth Metals as calcium (mg/Kg): 250

 

Handling

 

O-Barite can be mixed through the mud hopper as rapidly as needed.  When large amounts are added to a mud system it may be necessary to add water to prevent mud dehydration.
