Bentonite mud-powder

Betonitic gel powder is dried and milled clay, treated with chemical reagents or without them. Use and purpose It is a base for preparation of drilling fluids. This powder is used as gelling additive. It ensures optimal integrity of gel with minimum viscosity for removal of drilling cuttings that ensures efficient cleaning of the channel. It improves stability of well shaft in purely sealed/cemented sands and gravel formations. It reduces fluid loss, creating thin clay cake with low permeability. It is used as lubricant in micro-tunnel operations. It ensures cost-efficient approach, disperse easily and quickly achieve dynamic viscosity. This ensures high performance of drilling works. It is environmentally safe.
