**How many times are you asked about bulk conversion?**

I have heard people asking like this “How many sacks of barite are equal to 1 cubic of barite?”, “How much is weight of one sack of cement?”, “I receive 20 tons of bentonite. What is the factor to covert my bentonite in ton to sacks”, etc.Therefore, I collect several useful conversions used for bulk on the drilling rigs.

**The bulk conversion factors are listed below:**

**Fresh water**

1 Gal (US) water = 0.83267 Gal (IMP)

1 Gal (US) water = 8.3453 lbs

1 Gal (US) water = 3.785 liters

1 liter of water = 2.2048 lbs

1000 liters of water = 2205 lbs

1 cubic meter of water = 2205 lbs

1 metric ton of water = 2205 lbs

1 metric ton of water = 264 Gal (US)

1 metric ton of water = 220 Gal (IMP)

1 metric ton of water = 6.29 BBL (US)

**Diesel (Average Weight)**

1 Gal (US) diesel = 7 lbs

1 Gal (IMP) diesel = 8.4 lbs

1 liter of diesel = 1.85 lbs

1 cubic meter of diesel = 1850 lbs

1 metric ton of diesel = 2205 lb

1 metric ton of diesel =315 Gal (US)

1 metric ton of diesel = 263 Gal (IMP)

1 metric ton of diesel = 1190 liters

**Barite**

1 sack of barite = 100 lb

1 cubic foot of barite = 135 lb

1 metric ton of barite = 2205 lb

1 metric ton of barite = 22 sacks

1 metric ton of barite =16.3 cubic foot

**Bentonite**

1 sack of bentonite = 100 lb

1 cubic foot of bentonite = 60 lb

1 metric ton of bentonite = 2205 lb

1 metric ton of bentonite = 22 sacks

1 metric ton of bentonite =36.8 cubic foot

**Cement**

1 sack of cement = 94 lb

1 sack of cement = 1 cubic foot

1 metric ton of cement = 2205 lb

1 metric ton of cement = 23.5 sacks

1 metric ton of cement =23.5 cubic foot

**Gycol**

1 Gal (US) glycol = 9.5 lb

1 Gal (IMP) glycol = 11.5 lb

1 liter glycol = 3.2 lb

**Aviation Fuel (Average Weight)**

1 Gal (US) aviation fuel = 6.8 lbs

1 Gal (IMP) aviation fuel = 8.2 lbs

1 liter aviation fuel = 1.8 lbs

THE BULK CONVERSION UNIT DETAILS IS VERY HANDY AND VERY USEFUL FOR THE MAN ON THE ON THE RIG , THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR EASING THE JOB FOR THE MAN ON THE RIG .

thank you

As an officer onboard supply vessel I found the note is very useful for our calculation. Thank you.

Can someone please tell me the weight of calcium carbonate? for example 1MT equals how many cubic feet? i have 1000 ft3 tanks and want to be able to figure out how much i can safely load into them. thanks
