AMC BARITE™ is a high quality barium sulphate (BaSO4) micronized to meet API 13A specifications and is used to increase mud density in all types of drilling fluid systems, oil or water based.
AMC BARITE™ is chemically inert to all drilling fluids additives and is used to increase the density of any drilling fluid system. AMC BARITE™ is added to a mud system to help control formation pressures, stabilise the borehole or used in kill fluids.
AMC BARITE™ is added through a mud hopper or suitable shearing device. The amount of AMC BARITE™ required to increase the fluid density can be calculated using the following formulas:
AMC BARITE, kg / m³ = 4200 (w2 – w1) / 4.2 – w2
w1 = Initial mud weight in specific gravity
w2 = Desired mud weight in specific gravity
Appearance: Tan powder
Specific Gravity: 4.2
