Witch Equipment hosted a Drilling Mud School June 26 in Fort Worth, Texas. The training was in conjunction with Railhead Manufacturing and Baroid Industrial Drilling Products in two classrooms for English and Spanish.

The training included the Baroid drilling fluid products used to facilitate successful bores by flowing cuttings, creating hole stability and extending wear life on tooling. The main topics centered around applying the right mud mixture for different soil conditions.

Attendees represented Aleman Construction, Aqua-Bore, Bailey HDD, Flowers Construction, Haros Brothers Co., Issac Directional Drill, Railhead Underground, Rodgers Construction, San Gabrielle Communications, Texas State Utilities, Thunderbolt Utility, Transcontinental Co. and Walker Contracting. Witch Equipment also used the opportunity to educate its own service technicians and parts managers.
