Underground Construction - September 2020 - 33

DMD Soda Ash: Boosts pH level of make-up water to improve bentonite mixing
and performance.

Wyo-Ben, Inc., (406) 652-6351, www.wyoben.com

Power DET: Drilling detergent formulated for HDD. Low foaming, it helps
manage bit balling and prevents sticking tendencies of clay.

Borzan: This true biopolymer is highly concentrated to minimize the cost
per gallon. Its gel strengths suspend solids and prevent sticking, reducing loss
circulation problems.

Power Swell: Plugging and sealing granular polymer that absorbs water
to swell to 200 times its original particle size. Effective LCM for HDD.

Claymaster: Concentrated, nonhazardous, proprietary clay inhibitor that can be
used with either polymer or bentonite drilling fluid systems.

Power Thin: Clay-thinning agent, mud thinner. A liquid that helps combat
swelling clays and will also reduce the viscosity of a thick slurry. Helps manage
clay problems.

Drill-X HP: Low-foaming, drilling detergent and wetting agent used in freshwater
systems. It also offers lubrication characteristics.

M-I SWACO, (601) 649-1500, slb.com/drilling
DUO-VIS/SUPER-VIS: High-molecular-weight biopolymer used for increasing
carrying capacity in water-based systems, and to increase low-shear viscosity
for cuttings transport and suspension.
PLATINUM D-D: Aqueous blend of surface-active agents designed to reduce
the surface tension of all water-based mud systems and reduce the sticking
tendency of water-sensitive shale cuttings, which minimizes bit balling.
PLATINUM PAC: Premium, specially coated PAC designed for easy mixing
without fish-eye formation. It provides filtration control and clay swelling
inhibition in freshwater systems. NSF certified.
PLATINUM PAC UL: This polyanionic cellulose (PAC) is a high-quality, readily
dispersible, water-soluble polymer designed to control fluid loss. And, as an
"ultra-low" (UL) additive, it causes minimal increase in viscosity in water-based
muds. NSF certified.

Dril-Trol QD: Dry version of Uni-Drill, offering fluid loss control, moderate viscosity
and superior clay inhibition.
Kwik-Vis "D": Premium PHPA polymer in a dry granular form. Designed to achieve
high viscosities in shaft, caisson, horizontal drilling and slurry trenching operations,
and in small drill applications.
Thinz-It: High-performance thinning agent for heavy clay applications. Can be
used in conjunction with Drill-X to produce a unique "dispersed" mud system for
better hole cleaning and faster penetration rates.
Uni-Drill: Proprietary liquid polymer designed for use in rotary and HDD operations.
It mixes quickly and controls fluid loss, preventing the formation clays from swelling.
Wyo-Lube RR: Premium drilling fluid lubricant designed for HDD, rotary drilling
and mining industries. Its superior lubricating properties decrease torque and drag,
increase the penetration rate and reduce wear on tooling.
Wyo-Vis LVP: Powder polymer that shields clays from swelling during the boring
operation, while adding limited viscosity to the mud system.

PLATINUM ROD EASE: Superior, environmentally friendly lubricant that
reduces torque, corrosion and wear on equipment, while increasing ROP
and overall rig potential.
POLYPAC R: This polyanionic cellulose is a high-quality, water-soluble polymer
designed to control fluid loss and increase viscosity in water-based muds.
POLY-PLUS & POLY-PLUS 2000: Both PHPA polymers boost viscosity and
lubricity, and provide clay inhibition. POLY-PLUS 2000 is 52% active and will
not separate under any conditions. Both polymers are NSF certified.
POLY-PLUS EHV: Very-high-molecular-weight polymer designed to provide
high viscosity at low concentrations, cuttings encapsulation and clay stabilization.
Also acts as a viscosifier, friction reducer and flocculant. NSF certified.
POLY-PLUS LV: Low-molecular-weight, medium-charge PHPA additive designed
to provide cuttings encapsulation and clay dispersion inhibition, and for use in
fluids based on fresh and saline water environments. Provides minimal viscosity
contribution and can enhance filtration properties. When added to MAX GEL or
MAX BORE HDD, it produces an inhibitive drilling fluids system without affecting
fluid properties. NSF certified.
POLY-PLUS RD: Polymer product that is readily dispersed and designed to
provide cuttings encapsulation and clay stabilization. Formulated for easy mixing
with improved dispersion to eliminate "fish eyes." This is beneficial when rapidly
mixing either large quantities or high concentrations of polymer, where good
mixing equipment is unavailable. Also acts as a viscosifier, friction reducer and
flocculant, and provides some fluid-loss control. NSF certified.
POLYSWELL: Unique, crosslinked polymer designed to swell many times
its original weight when added to a drilling fluid. Its primary application is
for lost circulation.
RINGFREE: Low-molecular-weight, liquid polymer designed to thin bentonitebased fluids. Also aids in breaking up sticky or swelling clays to help reduce
torque and drag. NSF certified.
