Viscosity Aid for Water Based Drilling Fluids

Pure Xanthan Gum is high purity xanthan gum polymer used to increase viscosity in all types of water based drilling, completion and work-over fluids. which is environmentally non-damaging and provides the maximum rheology at low dosage concentrations.

Functions:

Pure Xanthan Gum has the following functions:

  • Provides excellent and effective suspension properties limiting settlement of weighting agents and drilled cuttings.
  • Has excellent low shear rheology, allowing for maximum lifting and removal of drilled solids.
  • Effective in both weighted and low solids mud over a wid PH range and in all types of saturated brines.
  • Effective shear thinning agent promoting low bit viscosity for maximum attrition rates and high annular viscosity for effective hole cleaning.
  • Non-damaging to formations and can be easily removed with acids and oxidizing agent.
  • Manintans  performance at down-hole temperatures in excess of 270 deg F.

Recommended Treatment: 

Concentrations in the range of 0.25 – 2.0 lb/bbl are recommended to control drilling mud properties. The quantity used would be dependent on the drilling fluid system, drilling depth and equipment.

Packaging:

Packaged in 50lb and 25 kg multiwall paper sacks.

Legislation and Handling Recommendations:

No Restricted by any regulatory agency.  Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the product prior to use.
