The Retort is designed to measure the percentage of oil, water, and solids in a sample of drilling fluid or cuttings. This percentage is crucial for controlling mud properties, such as rheology, density, filtration, and salinity. And knowing the solids content of your drilling mud is essential for evaluating viscosity control and solids control equipment.

The new Multi Unit Retort combines five 50 mL Retorts into a single unit. Each Retort has its own electronic temperature controller and an ergonomic stand for holding the receiver tube (also known as JP Tube). This compact design not only fits under a fume hood, but it also saves valuable and scarce bench space.

The MudChecker, from Salunda Ltd., is quickly becoming one of the most talked-about instruments in the drilling fluids industry. This handheld, solid-state device provides oil, water, total solids, and salinity measurements in a simple, two-step process. It also measures high-gravity and low-gravity solids with no chemicals and no heating elements. The results are accurate, repeatable, electronic, and traceable.

The latest release of the MudChecker, version 1.5, now offers standalone operation. All calculations are now performed on onboard, with no software and no internet connection required. This exciting new feature makes it easier for remote technicians and rig personnel to take measurements in areas where the internet is not accessible.

Everyone in the drilling fluids industry is familiar with the oilfield retort. It measures the volume of oil, water, and solids in a sample of drilling mud. They come in three sizes – 10 mL, 20 mL, and 50 mL – and are often included in field portable kits.

Typically, the retorts included in kits are the smallest size, 10 mL. But OFITE has changed that. We have developed a 20 mL retort chamber that fits into the same heating jacket as the 10 mL retort chamber. This gives you a choice of sample volumes in your field kits. And since it fits in the same heating jacket, you can easily switch sizes by changing the chambers and cups.

OFITE will be exhibiting at the 2018 Global Petroleum Show June 12th – 14th in Calgary, Canada. Stop by booth 1408 and learn about our latest products and services. We will be showing:

  • Model 4005 Automated UCA/SGSM with automated temperature and pressure control, touch-screen display, and integrated Static Gel Strength Measurement Device.
  • Model 900 Viscometer, featuring standalone or computer-controlled mode, keypad with digital display, and heat cup and carrying case included.
  • The MudChecker ES, a solid-state probe that measures the oil, water, and solids content as well as salinity of oil based drilling fluids in just a few minutes.

We will also be discussing our new TLF-112 Triaxial Mechanical Properties Testing System, which measures the compressive strength, Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ratio, and tensile strength (using the indirect Brazilian method) of well cement and the new Multi-Unit Retort, which incorporates five 50 mL retorts into a single instrument for space-saving efficiency.

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.
