Sodium Bentonite, which meets API 13A Section 9 specification. It is a Premium-grade sodium montmorillonite clay, used as primary filter-cake building, increase viscosity and reduce filtration-control and suspension agent in water-base mud systems.
Non-treated Bentonite, high quality product which meets API 13A section 10 specification. Chemically untreated, premium-grade sodium montmorillonite clay, used as primary filter-cake building, filtration-control and suspension agent in water-base mud systems.
OCMA Grade Bentonite which meetsAPI Spec 13A, Section 11 specifications for Bentonite. is used in vertical drilling fluids to increase viscosity and filtration control. This mineral is also ideal in drilling fluids because it expands when exposed to water. This expansion helps down hole formations to be sealed from invading drilling fluids.
XANTHAN GUM is high viscosity dispersible Xanthan Gum biopolymer that gives high viscosity build at low shear rates. It can be utilized as a Viscosifier in oilfield drilling, workover and completion fluids. In oil field applications, Xanthan Gum has demonstrated unique rheological characteristics that provide optimum hole cleaning and suspension. XANTHAN GUM can be mixed in fresh or brackish water.
GUAR GUM is used primarily as a viscous slugging fluid, pumped at connections to ensure that all cuttings are removed from the annulus while drilling surface holes with water.It can be used in brackish water, salt saturated water or KCL brine.
Attapulgite clay, meets API specifications 13A section 12, used to provide viscosity and hole cleaning capabilities in drilling fluids with high concentrations of salts.attapulgite clay is highly effective Viscosifier in salt water drilling muds, where bentonite becomes ineffective Viscosifier.
HYDROXYETHYL CELLULOSE (HEC) -purpose viscosifying agent for use in freshwater, sea-water and complex brine systems, its viscosifying characteristics are unaffected by common contaminants & dissolved salts.
