Barite (BaSO4) is used as a weighting agent in both water and oil base drilling fluids. Due to its relatively low cost and high density, Barite is the most commonly used weight material in drilling fluids.  It is an inert material and fully conforms to either API standard 13A / or OCMA specification DFCP- 3. Barite weighted fluids can achieve a maximum density of +/- 2400 kg/m3.


Appearance: fine beige/gray powder 
Specific Gravity: 4.20

Bulk Density: 2160 kg/m3 
Residue:  3% residue (max.) on US Sieve #200 (74 microns) 
                   5% residue (min.) on US Sieve #325 (44 microns)




The quantity of Barite required will depend upon encountered formation pressures and Operator’s specifications. The formula for calculating the required amount of Barite to achieve a desired density is: Barite kg/m3 required = {4200 (W2 – W1)} / (4200 – W2)


For every 100 sacks of barite mixed, the volume increases by 1 cubic meter. Add through the hopper as rapidly as needed. When large amounts are added to a system, add water to prevent mud dehydration.
