IMDEX MUD AID™ (Automated In-field Diagnosis) is a remotely monitored, in-field mud testing unit, designed to optimise and automate fluid management.


When a drilling fluids specialist cannot be on site full-time, an automated system can be beneficial to measure and monitor drilling fluid properties. The newly launched IMDEX MUD AID™ is a remotely monitored, Automated In-field Diagnosis unit, designed to manage and automate drilling fluid processes.

The remotely monitored drilling fluid testing unit

The IMDEX MUD AID™ facilitates optimisation and execution of the drilling fluid program by presenting real-time information on fluid properties. This compliments the job of the drilling fluids specialist and may assist in optimising drilling fluid performance.

The unit live-samples drilling fluid and tests project specific properties, to API standard where applicable. The unit presents this data in real-time allowing the operator to make adjustments according to the program.

The IMDEX MUD AID™ is integrated with the company’s award winning, secure, cloud based web portal IMDEXHUB-IQ™, for complete visibility anywhere, anytime across the operation.

Easy set-up and customisation

The IMDEX MUD AID™ is portable, lightweight and easy to install and operate. Set up is provided by a certified AMC drilling fluid specialist and includes pairing the IMDEX MUD AID™ to site specific conditions, setting parameters and automating alerts, helping to intercept any potential issues.

The drilling fluid specialist will remotely provide periodic monitoring and recommendations, so drillers can attempt to rectify variances in the system – providing drillers greater control over their drilling fluid system.

Drilling fluid test properties are viewed through the IMDEXHUB-IQ™ as well as on the unit display, which provides instant, secure access to real-time data and historical information. Data can also be downloaded via USB.
