AQUAGEL

Product Description:

AQUAGEL® visocifier is a treated premium grade Bentonite. AQUAGEL visocifier is finely ground to aid in dispersion and meets API specifications 13A, section 9 requirements. This product can provide viscosity and gelling characteristics to most water-based drilling fluids and also helps reduce fluid loss and filtrate seepage into the formation.

Applications /Functions

  •   Viscosify anionic water-based drilling fluids
  • Can reduce water seepage or filtration into permeable formations
  • Can form a thin filter cake with low permeability
  • Can promote hole stability in poorly consolidated formations

Advantages

  • Helps provide suspension for fluids weighted with barite or hematite
  • Helps improve hole-cleaning capacity of drilling fluids
  • Meets or exceeds API manufacturing standards (Section 9, Bentonite)
  • Is environmentally responsible
  • Can be added directly to fresh water or fresh water drilling fluids

Typical Properties

 

  •  Appearance Variable-colored powder
  • Bulk density, compacted 73 lb/ft³
  • Bulk density, uncompacted 50 lb/ft³
  • Bulk density, compacted 1169 kg/m³
  • Bulk density, uncompacted 800 kg/m³

Recommended Treatment:

1. Add AQUAGEL viscosifier in concentrations of 0-25 lb/bbl (0-70 kg/m³) to any active system.
2. Mix slowly through a jet mixer or sift slowly into the vortex of a high-speed stirrer.
Note: For optimum yield, AQUAGEL viscosifier should be prehydrated in fresh water when the fluid's chlorides exceed 8000 ppm.


Packaging

AQUAGEL viscosifier is available in 50-lb (22.7-kg) and 100-lb (45.4-kg) sacks.
