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.

The Retort measures the percentage (%) of oil, water, and solids in a sample of drilling fluid or cuttings. The results from a Retort test are essential to properly controlling mud properties such as rheology, density, filtration, and salinity. It is also important for evaluating viscosity control and solids control equipment.

Retort Kits have historically been large and bulky, taking up valuable laboratory space. The OFITE Multi Unit Retort combines five 50 mL Retort units into a single enclosure with a single electrical inlet. It saves space on the counter and only uses one electrical outlet. It also features a convenient stand for 50 mL Receiver Tubes (JP Tubes) and independent temperature control for each unit. The included software records and graphs the temperature of each unit over time.

Advanced oil well cement testing goes beyond compressive strength. The elastic properties (Young’s Modulus, Poisson’s Ratio, and Tensile Strength) also play a major role in well integrity. But measuring these properties has always been a challenge. The equipment is often large, complex, and expensive. What is the solution?

The OFITE TLF-112 Triaxial Mechanical Properties Testing System is the first instrument specifically designed to physically measure the four major mechanical properties of oil well cement:
