Standard oilfield viscometers (such as the Model 800) show the shear stress of a fluid on a physical dial. This tried-and-true method is simple and reliable, which is why it’s so popular. But it’s not very flexible. Speeds have to be changed manually and readings have to be written down. There’s a lot of labor involved.

The Model 900 Viscometer provides a much more automated and streamlined process. The included ORCADA™ software gives you the power to program complex tests with multiple speeds, temperatures, and measurements. You can program multiple sweeps, gel times, and temperature ramps on the computer and then copy the test to the onboard controller for later use. The viscometer will also calculate the rheology your fluid based on the Power Law and/or Bingham Plastic analysis models. And all the steps of the test are executed automatically, without user intervention. Once you start the test, you can move on to other things while the Model 900 does all the work.

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.
