Barytes API Grade Supplier and Manufacturer

Barytes API Grade

Weight material is a high‐quality, drilling‐grade barite (barium sulfate) used to increase the density of   drilling fluids. This high‐specific‐gravity mineral is the most widely used weight material, has application  in all drilling fluid systems and meets all API specifications for barite api grade. 

Characteristic and Property

Physical Appearance : The material shall be in the form of powder, free from lumps and visible impurities.
Density at 24 ± 2 °C °gC / cm 3………………………………………………………………………4.15 (Minimum)
Water Soluble Alkaline Earth Metals, as Calcium, mg / kg……………………………………..250 (Maximum)
Residue greater than 75 μm, percent mass fraction…………………………………………….3.0 (Maximum)
Particles less than 6 μm in Equivalent Spherical
Diameter, percent mass fraction……………………………………………………………..………30 (Maximum) 

Applications 

Material can be used to increase the density of any mud system. Mud weights up to 20 lb/gal (2.40 SG) can be achieved 
in most drilling fluids while still maintaining good rheological properties.  Material is  also excellent in formulating special kill fluids and barite plugs that often reach 22 lb/gal (2.64 SG) for well control procedures. 
 An increase in volume of approximately 1.4 bbl/ton (0.25 m3/tonne) can be expected from material  additions. Density increases can require water or base liquid dilution sufficient to wet the surfaces of  the added barite adequately.

Advantagess 

Essentially chemically inert and insoluble, functions only in a physical manner does not react with other drilling fluid additives or interfere with their function minimally abrasive. 

Toxicity and Handling 

Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).  

Packaging and Storage 

Material is packaged in 100‐lb (45.4‐kg), multi‐wall, paper sacks; 40‐kg sacks; big bags and is available in bulk. Store in a dry, well‐ventilated area. Keep container closed. Store away from incompatibles. 
Follow safe warehousing practices regarding palletizing, banding, shrink‐wrapping and/or stacking.
