Bentonite Testing

Drilling Grade Bentonite Testing In Accordance With API 13A – $750

Includes the following tests:

  • Suspension properties (viscometer dial reading at 600 r/min, yield point/plastic viscosity ratio, and filtrate volume)
  • Particle sizing (residue of diameter greater than 75 microns)

The current API specifications for drilling grade bentonite are:

  • Viscosity: Reading of 30 at 600 r/min
  • Yield Point/Plastic Viscosity Ratio:  3, maximum
  • Filtrate Volume:  15 mL, maximum
  • Residue of diameter greater than 75 microns:  4 % by weight, maximum

As with all the testing done at Global Energy Laboratories, the bentonite testing is done to exacting API specifications, with a high speed, and at an affordable cost.
