Methylene Blue Test (MBT)

Methylene Blue Test (MBT)

The methylene blue Test (MBT) is based on the determination of the adsorptive abilities of clays, which are ready for an exchange reaction with cations that are in the drilling mud.

A complete analysis of the drilling fluid includes MBT, retort analysis, salt determination.
