AEIHEM (API Grade Hematite Powder)

API-hematite-powderAEIHEM, 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 : –

·        AEIHEM (Hematite Powder) is mainly used in Oil & Gas drilling.

o   Hematite Powder increase the density of water based & Oil based Fluids

o   API Grade Hematite Powder is applicable in all types of drilling fluids, including freshwater, seawater and oil-base muds.

o    For Cementing Grade Hematite Powder, Please refer this : Cementing Grade Hematite Powder

Advantage : –

·        Fluids weighted with API Hematite Powder (AEIHEM) contain fewer solids by volume then those weighted with Barite, making higher mud fluids possible. 

·        API Hematite Powder is essentially useful in high density fluids. 

·        Use of Hematite Powder in muds results in higher rates of penetration.

·        Hematite is harder mineral than Barite so it is more resistant to particle size degradation. 

·        Hematite Powder have higher bulk density than Barite so smaller volume is required at wellsite and for transportation. 


Packaging : –

·        AEIHEM (API Hematite Powder) are packaged in 50 Kgs, 25 Kgs bags and 1.0 Mt & 1.5 Mt 240 gsm full loop Jumbo Bags with 100 Micron inner liner.
