Although many types of viscometer are available, most of them are quite unsuitable for collecting scientific or engineering data. Due to various features of their construction make it impossible to determine both shear stress and shear rate at the same known point in the equipment. The flow curve therefore can not be constructed from data obtained with such devices. Most of these unsatisfactory instruments give complex reading functions of several type of fluid properties. The aim of this study will examine the viscous properties and to make curve of mud slurry by horizontal pipe as viscometer. These viscometer determine relationships between shear stress and shear rate. The diameter of pipe was 12,7 mm. The length of pipe was 1000 mm. Calculated the shear stress and the shear rate by measuring the pressure loss gradient and the gradient of velocity, respectively. Weight fraction of mud slurry were 20 %, 30 % and 45 %. The results indicated the apparent viscosity of mud slurry is not proportional to the shear stress and shear rate but the relationship could be approximated by power law’s mode with the index n = 0.93 – 1.0
