Haematite

Description:

Hematite is a high purity ground Iron Oxide (Ferric Oxide ). Used to increase the density of drilling fluids in Oilfield Drilling Applications . It can also be substituted or blended with barite in all types of mud systems. It is grinded to a Size Suitable for Drilling and Remove Impurities.

GLO FERROXIDE 5000 is a Premium Grade Hematite manufactured as per API 13 A specifications for usage in the Oil Drilling applications as a Weighting Material . Due to its high specific gravity muds Formulated using GLO FERROXIDE 5000 have low solid Content and improve the ROP as compared to Baryte based Muds 

Application:

GLO FERROXIDE 5000 ( Ground Hematite Powder) is  in all types of drilling fluids, including fresh water, sea water and oil based muds. It helps increase density, control formation pressure and stabilize the bore hole and can be Mixed with Baryte too acheive the desired Density of the Drilling Muds 

Common Name – Hematite, Iron Oxide

Advantages:

  • It has a lower attrition rate than barite, being harder has less chances of particle size degradation
  • It improves rheological properties in muds.
  • It provides higher rate of penetration.
  • It is more resistant to particle size degradation and is more environmental friendly than   barite
  • Due ot its higher Specific Gravity the Muds have lowder Solid Content as compared to Baryte Muds
