Process data

Measuring task:
Density measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
0.8 g/cm3 … 2.5 g/cm3
Mud (drilling mud)
Process temperature:
0 … +90 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +5 bar
Special challenges:


Prior to, and during pumping into the well, the density of the mud needs continuous monitoring. Density is an important criteria for determining the correct composition of the drilling mud. The correct mud formulation ensures smooth forward propulsion, wear-free drilling and excellent sealing of the borehole is ensured through density monitoring.
