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.

The Ultrasonic Cement Analyzer (UCA) uses the change in velocity of an acoustic signal to determine the compressive strength of a well cement over time. The Static Gel Strength Measurement Device (SGSM) uses a vaned bob submerged in the slurry to determine the static gel strength over time. Together, these two instruments provide a more complete picture of the physical properties of a well cement as the slurry sets.

The all new Model 4005 Automated Twin Cell UCA with optional SGSM automatically controls the temperature and pressure in each cell independently, bringing a new level of precision and control to your cement lab. With the new touch-screen display, you can now run an entire test in standalone mode, without the need for computer software, although the software is still included with the instrument.

We are excited to announce the addition of a new product to our catalog. The Mud Watcher continually monitors and displays the density, viscosity, and temperature of any drilling fluid (mud, brine, completion fluid, etc.) used on a rig. It sends all data directly to the rig data acquisition system, mud logging unit, or dedicated data acquisition system. The Mud Watcher reduces the risk to rig personnel while providing more accurate, reliable information for better decision making.

Since the Mud Watcher can be operated unattended, it is no longer necessary for personnel to enter the shaker shack multiple times a day to take samples. This reduces their exposure to potentially hazardous conditions, such as high temperatures, hydrocarbon gas, or even H2S.

Filtration testing is critical to understanding the effectiveness of a drilling mud system. Excess fluid loss can cause costly damage and drilling delays. Yet most filtration tests do not provide a complete picture of what it happening downhole. Static filtration represents only a part of drilling activity.

For most of a drilling operation, drilling fluid is circulating inside the wellbore. To understand how the movement of the fluid through the annulus affects filtration, you need a dynamic filter press.
