Calcium Chloride is a basic inorganic salt CaCl2 that is highly soluble in water and is used to make drilling and workover fluids or brines with a density range from 8.33 to 11.6 lbm/gal [1.39 g/cm3] at saturation. It is available in three grades, Fines, Powder and Mini-Prill and is used to provide free chloride and calcium in a variety of applications. It is also used as a soluble weighting agent and in oil based fluids to provide water phase salinity (water activity).
Calcium chloride is hygroscopic and opened material will absorb water quickly. Mixes readily in water and can be mixed directly through a conventional jet hopper or pre-dissolved in a chemical barrel or cement unit mixing.
Features and Benefits:
- Flocculant for clear water drilling
- Salinity source for oil base muds
- Completion/workover applications
- Accelerator for cement (typically 4%)
- Antifreeze applications
