Cementing Grade Hematite Powder

Cementing Grade Hematite Powder

Iron Oxide Powder (Hematite)AIRHEM-C, Hematite Powder is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron. Hematite, is the mineral form of iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3), one of several iron oxides.

 Application : –
  • Cementing Grade Hematite Powder is mainly used in Oil & Gas drilling.
  • Weighting agent such as Hematite is normally required at densities greater than 17 lbm/gal where dispersants or silica is no longer effective. The main requirements for weighting agents are:
      • The specific gravity is greater than the cement
      • The particle size distribution is consistent
      • They have a low water requirement
      • They are chemically inert in the cement slurry
      • They do not interfere with logging tools
  •  Hematite Powder is applicable in all types of drilling fluids, including freshwater, seawater and oil-base muds.
  • For drilling grade API Hematite Powder, Please refer this : API Hematite Powder

Packaging : –

·        Cementing Grade Hematite Powder are packaged in 100 lbs, 50 lbs bags and 1.0 Mt & 1.5 Mt 240 gsm full loop Jumbo Bags with 100 Micron inner liner.
