The mud balance provides a simple, practical method for the 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 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. 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.
