Utilising a wide range of available filter mediums, the Mud Dynamic Filtration System can be heated and pressurized to provide the closest possible simulation of down-hole conditions. Several safety features have been designed into the system to protect the user and help ensure reliable test results.

The filter medium is a thick-walled cylinder with rock-like characteristics to simulate the build-up of filter cake on the formation. The filter medium is available in varying porosities and permeabilities to simulate down hole formations.

Filtration occurs radially from the inside of the filter core to the outside. At the same time, the filter cake is formed on the inside of the filter core to simulate filter cake formation on the wall of a borehole. Polished stainless steel shear bob Following completion of a test, the filter cake can be inspected visually. A polished stainless steel shear bob runs through the central axis of the filter core. The shear bob is rotated to produce a concentric cylinder-type shear across the filtration surface.

The LCD display allows monitoring of real-time test results, which are printed for further analysis and filing of test results. The Mud Dynamic Filtration System also features an interface port, which allows downloading of ASCII-formatted data to a personal computer. The system is fully automatic with a built-in computer controller.

Through menu-driven software, the user can establish up to 20 sequence steps to program the following testing parameters:

  • Temperature
  • Pressure
  • Differential pressure
  • Shear rate
