Material Brief: Skeletal Density of Barite - Ultrapyc 5000

Barite was analyzed using helium gas on the Ultrapyc 5000. The skeletal density was measured.

Barite is an essential component of drilling mud, which is used to cool, clean, and lubricate the drill bit and maintain the wall of the hole being drilled. To determine the appropriate amount of barite needed to add to the mud to optimize its properties, its skeletal density must be known. The Anton Paar Ultrapyc 5000 was used to measure the skeletal density of barite.
