At OFITE we are excited to announce a new product for rheology testing. The OLR Series 1000 OnLine Rheometer is designed to continuously measure, plot, and report the flow properties of process fluids in the pipe. It provides instant and accurate rheological data in real time so that during manufacturing and processing, liquids are produced and maintained within specification.

The OLR is designed for use in a pipe. It continuously measures and relays the data to the process operator, either through the software (SOLR) or through a factory PLC (Process Logic Controller). The plant operator or engineer input specific flow property data for the product being tested to establish the optimum production specification parameters. The OLR monitors the process and displays the product conformance throughout the manufacturing and production process.

Most benchtop permeability testers are manually operated instruments with lots of valves and switches. The operator has to stand next to the instrument during a test to set pressures and record results.

The Automated Gas Permeameter makes testing the permeability of reservoir core samples simple and easy. It features two auto-switching mass flowmeters for measuring the flowrate of gas through the core. The included software automatically switches between the two flowmeters to suit the needs of the test, providing greater accuracy over the full measurement range.

Drilling fluids are critical to maintaining well safety and quality during construction and completion. That makes drilling fluid properties key control parameters of the drilling and completion process. Moreover, increased efficiency of new drilling technology, and demand for data driven by digital advances in remote monitoring and analytics require frequent and reliable measurement of the physical and chemical properties of drilling fluids. Typically, these properties have been measured by manual field sampling and testing. But manual testing lags advances in drilling efficiency, causes delays, and is susceptible to bias, inconsistencies, and inadvertent human errors.

Mud properties must be monitored and adapted as drilling progresses to total depth. These properties are not only critical to the safety and efficiency of the operation, they also provide valuable information throughout the drilling process. With this information, problems can be anticipated, and changes can be made. With better and more frequent measurements of mud properties comes improved safety and reduced nonproductive time (NPT), cost, and time to total depth.

OFITE is excited to introduce a new product to our catalog. The all-new Mud Aid™ represents another step in the path to drilling automation. Packaged in a rugged, durable carrying case, the Mud Aid™ periodically samples drilling fluid from the flow path and automatically tests the ion content and viscosity. The data is then reported to rig personnel in real time, allowing the mud engineer to make the necessary adjustments to the fluid system.

The Mud Aid™ can be configured with up to six (6) ion selective electrodes. This gives it the ability to test pH, Chlorides, Potassium, Calcium, and other ions. The fluid flows through a specially-designed manifold, past the electrodes, and back out.

The Constant Speed Blender is designed to prepare a cement slurry by mixing it at constant speeds according to API guidelines. The blender begins by mixing at 4000 rpm for 30 seconds. It then increases the speed to 12000 rpm for 60 seconds. As the slurry thickens, the onboard controller continuously adjusts the current to the motor in order to maintain the proper mixing speed.

The new Model 25 Constant Speed Blender from OFITE brings you the same functionality as the older Model 20 Blender in a more compact, economical package. The timer and speed controls are now integrated into the blending unit, eliminating the need for a separate control box. The result is a smaller, lighter unit that takes up less space in your lab and is easily portable.
