Sodium Sulphite (Na₂SO₃) is a soluble sodium salt of sulfurous acid used as an oxygen scavenger in water-based mud systems. Sodium sulphite readily decomposes. It is usually added at a concentration of 1 – 2 sacks to a barrel of water. After mixing, the blend is covered with a 10 – 15 cm blanket of diesel to minimize absorption of oxygen from the air and slowly pumped into the central stream of the mud with an injection pump. Sodium sulphite is added to the mud until the desired concentration is reached. This level will be maintained with daily treatments, 20-60 kg depending on the severity of the dissolved oxygen content in the drilling mud.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Used an oxygen scavenger
- It may also be used as an anti-oxidant to prevent polymer degradation.
