Slurry Preparation

Slurry Preparation Constant Speed Mixers blend cement slurry at an automatic maintained, constant shear rate in accordance with API standards. Atmospheric Consistometers are a simple and accurate means to prepare cement slurries for the testing of rheological properties, fluid loss and various other properties in strict compliance with API standards. Wettability Testers are two instruments in one; a constant speed mixer and an instrument for the evaluation of oil/water phase transition of oil-based drilling fluids as they interact with spacer and/or pre-flush systems.

    The first steps of any test procedure have the ability to significantly impact the final results. This is true for oil well cement where detailed testing by the API has proven that the methods of mixing cement slurries will significantly effect their thickening time. Because of this, the API has defined accepted practices for mixing cement slurries.

    Model 3065 (1 qt / 1 liter volume; 18,000 max. rpm)
    The bonding of oil-well cement to casing and well bore surfaces is critical to a successful well-completion. When using non-aqueous drilling fluids, such as oil-based and synthetic fluids, the ability of the spacer or pre-flush to water wet these surfaces becomes critical. The Chandler Engineering Model 3065 Wettability Tester is essential for evaluating the wettability of spacers and pre-flushes that are intended to water wet the surfaces to which cement is expected to bond.
