MIXER AND CUPS

 

Marsh Funnel

The Marsh funnel is a simple device for measuring viscosity by observing the time it takes a known volume of liquid to flow from a cone through a short tube.

FUNNEL

Direct Indicator Viscometer

The instrument used to measure viscosity and gel strength of drilling mud. Multi-speed device.

D IND VISC

Roller Oven

Roller Ovens are primarily designed for laboratory use. These roller ovens provide an excellent method of aging drilling fluid samples.

R OVEN

Retort Kits

A retort, sometimes called a still, is used to determine the quantity of liquids and solids in a drilling fluid.

R KIT

Resistivity Meter

The Resistivity Meter is a portable measuring device designed to give a quick, reliable measurement of the resistivity of a small sample expressed in ohm-meters.

R METER

pH Meter

pH measurement of samples

PH METER

Mud Balance

Measurement of density (weight) of drilling fluid, cementor any type of liquid or slurry.

M BAL

Analytical Balance

It is designed to measure small mass in the sub-milligram range

ANA BL

Standard Filter Press

Low pressure filter press design features a cell body to hold the mud sample, a pressure inlet, and a base cap with screen and filter paper. Suitable for filtration measurement in both field and laboratory use

S FIL PRESS

HTHP Standard Filter Press

High pressure High Temperature filter press design features a cell body to hold the mud sample, a pressure inlet, and a base cap with screen and filter paper. Suitable for filtration measurement in both field and laboratory use

HTHP

Lubricity Tester

A lubricity test was designed to simulate the speed of rotation of the drill pipe and the pressure with which the pipe bears against the wall of the hole.

L TESTER

Compactor

It prepares the sample in wafer form so the expansion may be measured

COMPACTOR

Linear Swell Meter

It is used in examining the interaction between water based fluids and mineral samples containing reactive clays under simulated conditions while fluid is in motion

Dean Stark Apparatus

The Dean-Stark apparatus or Dean-Stark receiver or distilling trap or Dean-Stark Head is a piece of laboratory glassware used in synthetic chemistry to collect water (or occasionally other liquid) from a reactor. It is used in combination with a reflux condenser and a batch reactor for continuous removal of the water that is produced during a chemical reaction performed at reflux temperature
