In water-based muds, as incorporation of drilled solids progressively influences the mud rheology, it may be of significant benefit to reduce the viscosity of your drilling fluid using a thinning agent (deflocculant).
These highly effective products avoid the need for mud dilution which also requires replenishment of mud chemicals and increases mud volume and disposal costs. In addition, once present, thinners will maintain a dispersed drilling fluid rheology, thus protecting against mud gelling or flocculation due to contamination and /or high temperature. This in turn will help achieve a thin filter-cake at the wellbore and will avoid excess fluid loss and associated issues.
We provide a range of thinners which bring additional advantages:
Alcomer® 74L is our unique thinner and deflocculant that provides the cleanest and most effective mud viscosity control. Some additional benefits with this product:
Polythin® is a superior deflocculant for clay / water based muds. Here are some of its benefits:
