Model 4300 Static Fluid Loss

A Critical Tool for Oil Well Cements and Drilling Fluids
Fluid loss from muds and cement slurries to a permeable formation can significantly impact performance or damage the formation. If a cement slurry loses too much fluid, its strength can be compromised and costly remedial intervention may be required. The Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell measures the fluid loss properties of muds and cement slurries in accordance with API procedures.

A Vastly Improved, Safer Instrument
Chandler Engineering developed the Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell to eliminate safety issues with traditional fluid loss instrument designs. The cell is designed using threaded end caps and eliminates the danger associated with set screw style cells.

  • The system incorporates over temperature circuitry never before utilized in previous designs.
  • Pop off valves are incorporated within the hardware design to prevent dangerous over pressure scenarios.
  • The microprocessor based temperature controller eliminates the need for obsolete rheostat temperature adjustments.
  • The digital display allows an operator to accurately display and set the operating temperature within ±1°C (±2F°).

All of the Model 4300 enhancements have allowed Chandler Engineering to create a vastly improved, safer and superior Fluid Loss System.

Operational Simplicity and Advanced Capabilities
The Model 4300 is designed to be as easy to use as possible, with clear and intuitive controls. Once the cement slurry or mud is placed into the test cell, a programmable temperature controller increases the temperature to the desired set point. The cell is then inverted to begin the fluid loss test. A graduated cylinder or the back pressure receiver is used to collect the filtrate for measurement of the fluid loss.
