It is desirable to know the sand content of drilling muds because excessive sand may result in the deposition of a thick filter cake on the wall of the hole, or may settle in the hole about the tools when circulation is stopped, thus interfering with successful operations of drilling tools or setting of casing. High sand content also may cause excessive abrasion of pump parts and pipe connections. Sand sized particles are defined as anything larger than 74 microns. This test can be performed on low solids muds as well as on weighted muds.
