BARITE (API) (Barium Sulphate) is utilized as a weighting agent in drilling fluids which meets API Specification 13A:2004 / ISO 13500:1998 Section 7.
Features And Benefits
BARITE (API) is chemically inert to all drilling fluid additives.
BARITE (API) is ground to such a particle size that a minimum of 97% will pass through a 200 mesh screen and a maximum of 25% will be less than 6 microns at a specific gravity of 4.20.
BARITE (API) is a cost effective means of increasing and/or maintaining drilling fluid density.
BARITE (API) is used to weight up mud system up to 21.0 ppg (SG 2.52).
