Mud Balance Model 140

Shale Tech Solutions SRL distribuidor exclusivo de FANN para la Argentina

Constructed of premium metals for durability, accuracy and ease of use

The Fann Model 140 Mud Balance provides a simple, practical method for accurate determination of fluid density.

It is one of the most sensitive and accurate field instruments available for determining the density or weight-per-unit-volume (specific gravity) of drilling fluids.

An outstanding advantage of this Mud Balance is that the temperature of the sample does not materially affect the accuracy of readings. A high impact plastic case protects the balance during transport and provides a secure base in its working position.

The Fann Model 140 Mud Balance is constructed with an easy-to-read beam graduated into four scales:

  • pounds per gallon
  • specific gravity
  • pounds per cubic foot
  • pounds per square inch per 1,000 feet of depth

The volume of space occupied by entrapped gas or air bubbles in a sample fluid may distort the accuracy of the fluid density measurement. This distortion can be significantly reduced by pressurizing the fluid. The density of a fluid containing entrained air or gas can be determined more accurately by using a pressurized fluid density balance.
