Process data

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

Abrasion

Application

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.

Your benefit
