Particle Size Analysis of Drilling Fluid

Particle Characterization

The particle size distribution of drilling fluid is an important physical parameter along with other properties such as density and rheology. Although particle size is recognized as being a critical parameter, older techniques such as sieving and sedimentation have long been used in this industry. Laser diffraction is now becoming more popular due to the increased amount of information generated by this analysis technique which is quick and easy to use. This application note explains why particle size distribution is critical and how HORIBA laser diffraction analyzers can be used to measure the particle size distribution of drilling fluids.
