Drilling liquids is also known as drilling mud. It’s very important in drilling activities. It may lubricate drilling bits and remove drilling cuttings in the wellhead, and chilling the drill bits.
Bentonite and Barite are the normal chemicals utilized in fabricating drilling liquids for drilling rigs. However, many people don’t know the main difference from the 2 types of chemicals.
Here is a simple description from the 2 chemicals.
Drilling liquids Bentonite
Drilling liquids bentonite has good suspension property, thixotropy, low fluid loss, and also have good performance to obtain mud. It’s convenient for all, and simple to regulate the proportion of drilling liquids (drilling mud). With those characteristic, drilling liquids bentonite is the perfect base mud material for deep well drilling and offshore drilling activities.
Drilling liquids Barite
Drilling liquids barite can be utilized to weight the mud. In certain oil and gas drilling activities, normally, drilling mud and clay possess a proportion of 2.5, the proportion water is 1, therefore the proportion of mud is gloomier, sometimes mud weight can’t be balance using the subterranean oil, gas pressure. It may lead to blowout accident. In the situation of subterranean ruthless situation, it’s important to improve the proportion of mud. Its function measures to include barite into drilling liquids. Barite utilized for drilling liquids ought to be as fine as 325mesh or even more.
Drilling liquids bentonite and barite is putting on material for drilling activities. There’s an enormous use of them. To be able to save cost and stop pollution to atmosphere, solids control devices are utilized for drilling liquids recovery.
4-stage Solids control equipment is utilized to recover the drilling liquids barite: Shale shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge.
