 What is the function of Barite for drilling fluids?

 Barite is commonly used to add weight to drilling fluid. Barite is of significance to petrophysicists because excess barite can require a correction factor in some well log measurements.

 A dense mineral, comprising barium sulfate [BaSO4]. Commonly used as a weighting agent for all types of drilling fluids, barites are mined in many areas worldwide and shipped as ore to grinding plants in strategic locations, where API specifies grinding to a particle size of 3 to74 microns. Pure barium sulfate has a specific gravity of 4.50 g/cm3, but drilling-grade barite is expected to have a specific gravity of at least 4.20 g/cm3 to meet API specifications. Contaminants in barite, such as cement, siderite, pyrrhotite, gypsum and anhydrite, can cause problems in certain mud systems and should be evaluated in any quality assurance program for drilling-mud additives.

The Barite Recover Tank was built to catch effluent off the barite recovery (first) centrifuge. The polishing (second) centrifuge would draw fluid from the bottom of the tank. This tank can be adjusted 6” vertically to allow for easy overflow fluid transfer back to the rig tank. The purpose of the Barite Recovery Tank is to prevent spills on the ground from centrifuge malfunction.
