Thickening time of a slurry is calculated to determine the time required to mix and pump the slurry. Mixing time for the volume is estimated from calculated slurry volume and mixing rate. Mixing rate varies from rig to rig, and is dependent on slurry design. Safety time is allowed to account for any shut down or slow mixing rates that may inadvertently occur.
- Atmospheric Consistometer Model 165AT: Specifically designed to prepare cement slurries for the testing of various parameters in strict compliance with API Specification 10A/ISO 10426-1:2000
- HPHT Consistometer: Measures cement slurry viscosity or consistency under elevated pressure and temperature conditions
