FER-OX weight material is a high-quality, ground iron oxide (hematite) with a specific gravity (sg) of 5.0 or above. Because of the product’s high specific gravity, muds formulated with FER-OX additive have lower solids content and frequently contribute to higher rates of penetration than barite muds. It can be substituted for or blended with barite in all mud systems. FER-OX additive is ground and processed to remove impurities, then classified to achieve the desired particle size distribution.
