After the splash guard and wipe down the bob

After
the rheology experiment was undertake we were able to measure the various
internal resistance values of a mud slurry to flow, with increasing viscosity and
resistance values.

3.   Also detach the splash
guard and wipe down the bob shaft. Wash and rinse all equipment compartments
thoroughly

2.   Detach the bob

1.   After concluding the test,
take out the sleeve

MAINTENANCE

 

           Now for the 10 minute gel strength, mix the
fluid again and wait for about 10 minutes before taking down the maximum dial
deflection readings

Step12:

          When the sleeve is done rotating,
wait another ten seconds to turn the power on whilst observing the dial
simultaneously, record the optimal dial deflection reading before the gel cuts
at the 10 second breach

Step11:

          Whirl the knob to read a gel setting
then turn off the power supply

Step10:

          Turn the knob to 300rpm setting, then
stir the sample again for a few more seconds

Step9:

           Twist the knob to 600rpm, then await
the dial to approach a balanced reading, then record the reading at 600rpm

Step8:

          Adjust the knob to stir so the sample
is mixed properly but only for some seconds

Step7:

          Switch on power supply

Step6:

           Position the sample in a cup and dip
the rotor until it reaches the fill line on the sleeve by elevating the
platform

Step5:

           Plug the viscometer to a powered
socket outlet

Step4:

           The sleeve should be placed against
the rotor above the bob, the main function of the thread is to ensure accurate
attachment and balanced uniformity every single time

Step3:

           Tighten the recommended bob with the
narrow end facing the splash guard

Step2:

          The splash guard should be positioned
upon the bob whilst the shortened tube faces the bearings

Step1:

PROCEDURE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      Velocity is managed with an adjustable
knob and various shear values are laid out on a magnifying dial from which
values can be observed by taking a closer look.

      This apparatus establishes flow
attributes of slurry samples in conditions of shear and stress due to time over
different time values of course such as temperature and pressure.

      This device is basically used to measure
the viscosity of a given fluid with the pattern of a rotating motion of a
system.

ROTARY
VISCOMETER:

APPARATUS

 

     Asymmetry between the two is measured with
the slurry approaching a gel like thickness due to stir

SECONDLY:
After a 10 minute time frame has been observed with the mud at rest in the
slurry cup

FIRST:
After stirring of the slurry in the mud cup

     The readings to be taken are of two types;

     The gel strength of the slurry is measured
at minimum shear stress values needed to give lapses.

      The following above may vary due to
preference of the conducted test, it can be changed effortlessly with the aid
of an adjustable knob, without obstructing the fluid in motion due to velocity
induced by the motor.
