BROKEN ARROW, OK – Fluid loss from muds and cement slurries to a permeable formation can significantly impact performance or damage the formation. If the cement slurry loses too much fluid, its strength can be compromised and require costly remedial intervention. The Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell from Chandler Engineering, a leader in drilling and completion instrumentation, measures the fluid loss properties of muds and cement slurries in accordance with API procedures.

Chandler developed the Model 4300 Fluid Loss Cell to eliminate safety issues that have been associated with traditional fluid loss instrument designs. The cell is designed using threaded end caps that eliminate the dangers associated with set screw style cells and pop off valves within the hardware design to prevent over pressure scenarios.

The system also incorporates never before used over-temperature circuitry as well as a micro-processor-based temperature controller that eliminates obsolete rheostat temperature adjustments. Redundant over-temperature safety circuitry eliminates the possibility of dangerous overheating, and a digital display allows the operator to accurately display and set the operating temperature with +/- 1oC (+/-2oF).

Chandler Engineering is a leader in oil well cementing, viscosity, reservoir analysis and high-pressure high-temperature instruments. It focuses on serving the upstream oil and gas markets in exploration and production. Its products are used for oil well cementing, viscosity measurement, reservoir analysis and other applications such as pipeline transmission.
