The mud balance provides a simple, practical method for the accurate determination of fluid density. The item's durable construction makes it ideal for field use. It's high-impact plastic case protects the balance during transport while providing a secure base for the balance during use. Scale reads in pounds per gallon (6-24 lb/gal); specific gravity (0.72-2.88 gms/cm3); pounds per cubic foot (45-180 lb.cu ft), and pounds per square inch per 1,000 feet of depth (310-1250 lb/sq in/100ft of depth). The H-4790 mud balance meets all the requirements of the API standard procedures for testing water base drilling fluids, oil base drilling fluids and oil well cements.
The Mud Balance supports the following standards: ASTM D4380
