Tests showed that when problems existed with caving formations, mud cakes were thick, and excessive quantities of water were lost. When these muds were replaced by rnuds that produced thin filter cakes and allowed small losses of water, the difficulties either disappeared or were reduced greatly. The laboratory filtration equipment, however, was not suitable for use in the field. Phil H. Jones40 later described a simple, rugged Figure 2-6.
