Hausmannite Mn3O4 in powder or slurry form

Hausmannite Mn3O4 is used in the drilling fluids and cementing composition to improve the technical characteristics, including for the hardest conditions such as HPHT :
- Weighting agents,
- Low viscosity spacer
- Self-stabilizing densifier

Slurry advantages

Slurry consists in a suspension of chemical products or insoluble minerals mixed with water to create a stable, fluid and easy-to-handle result not requiring any stirring.
By using slurry you get a more precise mixing, more safeness for employees as well as greater cleanliness.
Health and safety problems linked to the use of dangerous powders are eliminated.
No contaminated waste which would otherwise have to be reprocessed (bags, etc…).
Mixing is much more precise with a pump, thus reducing overdoses and wastage.
It is easier to measure a liquid than a powder, and this can reduce significantly the amount required.
A fully automated storage and distribution facility can be installed on the customer's factory. This facility almost requires no manpower.
