Technology has enabled the real-time availability of valuable data, allowing you to drill faster, explore deeper, more challenging holes, and in more remote places. Getting a drilling fluid engineer on site can cause logistical, QHSE and cost challenges to the client and driller.

As a market leading drilling optimisation provider, IMDEX understood these challenges and in response developed the IMDEX MUD AID™ (Automated In-field Diagnosis). The newly launched IMDEX MUD AID™ is a remotely monitored, in-field mud testing unit, designed to optimise and automate fluid management.

The all in one mud management solution

The IMDEX MUD AID™ guides drillers to complete drilling fluid programs, without the need for a dedicated drilling fluid engineer on site. The unit live samples the drilling fluid system against project-specific mud programs or API specifications, and provides instant recommendations for maintenance or treatment.
The IMDEX MUD AID™ monitors drilling fluid 24/7 to ensure optimal efficiency and to reduce any potential delays to the operation.

Easy set-up and customisation

The IMDEX MUD AID™ is portable, lightweight and easy to install and operate. Set up is provided by a qualified drilling fluid engineer and includes pairing the IMDEX MUD AID™ to site specific conditions, setting parameters and automating alerts to intercept any potential issues. The engineer will remotely provide continuous monitoring and recommendations, so drillers can rectify any variances in the system – providing drillers with complete peace of mind. Data can also be outputted via a USB.
