The Retort provides a method for measuring the percentage (%) of oil and water, and for estimating both suspended and dissolved solids contained in a sample of water-based or oil-based muds and cuttings. Knowledge of oil, water, and solid content is fundamental to proper control of mud properties when considering oil/water ratios, rheology, density, filtration, and salinity. Knowledge of solids in drilling fluids is essential to evaluation of viscosity control and solids control equipment.
Electronic temperature control (available on 50 mL and 20 mL sizes) provides more accurate, reliable, and reproducible testing. The digital display shows the current working temperature, so you always know your test conditions. Available in 115 and 230 volts.
