Bentonite Super Gel-X® is an easy mixing freshwater drilling fluid produced from the highest grade Wyoming sodium bentonite. It provides viscosity, gelling and filtration control properties to most fresh water-based drilling fluids where a high-quality bentonite is required. It is also used in hydraulic-barrier applications (pond-sealing, slurry trenching, caissons, etc.). Super Gel-X® requires a pH of 8.5-9.5 for optimal performance. Pre-treat make-up water with soda ash as required.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Meets or exceeds API specifications for bentonite (13A, section 9)
- Provides viscosity to improve hole-cleaning capacity of drilling fluids
- Provides suspension for weighting material
- Provides filtration control and forms a thin filter cake with no permeability
- Cools and lubricates bit
- Mixes quickly and easily
Bentonite is used to lubricate and cool the cutting tools, to remove cuttings, and to help prevent blowouts. Relatively small quantities of bentonite suspended in water form a viscous, shear-thinning material.
