Bulk Hardness Tester

The Bulk Hardness Tester (#150-87) is designed to evaluate the hardness of shale after exposure to fluids. The hardness of the shale can be related to the inhibitive properties of the fluid being evaluated. Shale that interacted with the fluids will become softer due to the adsorption of water, swelling, and dispersion of fine particles. This rock-fluid interaction can be […]

Dynamic Linear Swell Meter with Compactor and Computer

The Dynamic Linear Swell Meter is designed to simultaneously test up to four drilling fluids (expandable to eight) on a representative shale sample for extended periods of time at temperatures up to 180°F. The Linear Swell Meter is the only swell meter on the market capable of dynamically testing your fluids, so you obtain the […]
