Soda Ash is the common name for Sodium Carbonate Na2CO3. It is used primarily to remove calcium from make up water and to treat calcium contamination, primarily from drilling anhydrite. Over treatment of soda ash may result in excess carbonate, detrimental to bentonite drilling fluids. A soda-ash treatment is appropriate for gypsum contamination because caustic soda, NaOH, is not needed to raise pH. This is also generally the case with hard water influxes into water muds. Mix slowly through a conventional jet hopper; soda ash may be added directly to the tanks under certain circumstances.
Features and Benefits:
- Effectively removes calcium ions
- Increases the alkalinity and reduces calcium hardness, therefore increasing the yield of bentonite and many polymers
