In appropriate mark with a fresh batch of well

 In conclusion we were ableto determine a percentile value of sand contents present in the mud slurrywhich may not be so harm full in this case due to proper carrying out ofprocedures.CONCLUSION     Sand content = 0.5% The following readings of variouspercentile volume of sand were recorded from the graduated measuring tubescale:RESULTS5.  When concluded, rinse the slurry from the sieve screen,measuring tube and funnel thoroughly. Dry each apparatus.

The 200 mesh screenshould be given extra attention when cleaning4.  Place the funnel on its head hovering slightly over the sievescreen. Gradually overturn the setup and carefully interject the apex point ofthe funnel into the opening of the measuring tube. Rinse the sand contents intothe measuring tube spraying fresh water from the wash bottle onto the screenshimmy the side of the screen with the aid of a metal spatula to further easethis step3.  Cleanse the sieve screen with fresh water from the washbottle to loosen up sand remnants present on the sieve screen2.   Proceed to laying overthe mix onto the screen of the sieve.

Make waste of fluids which pour throughthe opposite end of the sieve screen. Make sure to top up the water in themeasuring tube once more, shudder the tube the proceed to pour all contentsupon the sieve screen. Keep at it until the slurry has been completely wipedout.1.

  Load the measuring tube to the appropriate mark with a freshbatch of well stirred mud slurry. Make use of the wash bottle to top up thecontents of the measuring tube with water or oil as the case may be. ( Inour  experiment we made use of freshwater)PROCEDURE      According to API standards anysubstance which is of 74 microns in diameter large enough for 200 mesh isconsidered sand sized particle.

This experiment can be performed on all typesof drilling fluids including heavy drilling fluids and light weighted drillingfluids.The amount of sand particles presentin a drilling fluid can be given in form of percentage with the aid of a sandcontent kit. APPARATUS       It is of good knowledge to be wellaware of sand content percentile present in our mud slurry due to over depositionwhich may be of harm to the wellbore that is differential sticking, cuttingbeds, prevention of laminar mud flow around the well and so on. Which canaffect production of a drilling operation and cause damage to tools andequipment. If the sand content present is too high it could be very dangerousto the drill pipes causing cracks and wear on the drill pipes. INTRODUCTION      CONCLUSION……………………………………………….
