Hematite API Grade Supplier and Manufacturer

Hematite API Grade

Description
Weighting material is ground Hematite and meets API Specification 13A Section 8 for drilling fluid Hematite. It is used to increase the density of drilling fluids to control formation pressures. Weighting material has a specific gravity of 4.8 and can be used to increase the density in oil and water-based drilling fluids up to 25 lb/gal (3.0 SG). Weighting material has a higher specific gravity than barite, and so requires less total product to achieve the same fluid density, but tends to be more abrasive than weighting material.

Characteristic and Property

Physical Appearance

Specific Gravity at 24 ± 2 °C………………………………………………………………4.90 (Minimum)
Water Soluble Matter, percent by mass…………………………………………………0.1 (Maximum)
Purity as Fe2O3, percent by mass……………………………………………………….94.0 (Minimum)
Wet Screen Analysis:
(a) Fraction Passing through 200
Mesh BSS or Equivalent Sieve, percent by mass…………………………………95.0 (Minimum)
(b) Fraction Passing through 300
Mesh BSS or Equivalent
Sieve, percent by mass…………………………………………………………………90.0 (Maximum)

Application

Helps increase the density of drilling fluids up to 26 lb/gal (3115 kg/m³)
Helps control formation pressures
Helps stabilize the borehole

Advantages

Has a higher specific gravity than barite
Has a lower attrition rate than barite
Environmentally responsible and nonmagnetic
Helps contribute a lower solids content by volume than a comparably weighted barite drilling fluid.
