May be used for all types of freshwater mud rotary drilling.
• Highly concentrated for maximum yield.
• Mixes quickly and easily.
• Reduces solids and increases lifting power.
• Removes cuttings.
• Cools and lubricates bit.
• Stabilizes boreholes.
• Helps prevent loss circulation.
Mixing and Applications:
Mixing ratios are based on 200 bbl. yield material using freshwater.
Level of water purity will affect bentonite performance. Prior to mixing, acidic and hard water should be treated with soda ash to a pH of 8.5-9.5. For best results, add Super Gel-X® slowly through a jet/hopper mixer.
Super Gel-X® mixing ratios in pounds per 100 gallons of water:
Normal conditions...........…15-25 lbs
Sand and gravel................25-35 lbs
Fluid loss control...............35-40 lbs
Bulk Density : 54 lbs./ft.
Packaging: 50 lb multiwall, water-resistant bags, 48 bags per pallet. All pallets are plastic-wrapped.
