Organophilic Clay
Gelling Agent and Viscosifier
Product Description
Organophilic Clay is an organically modified bentonite used as a gelling agent and viscosifier for primarily diesel-based drilling fluids.
Application/Function
Organophilic Clay is used in the 2-10lb/bbl (5.7-28.5 kg/m3) range depending on the desired viscosity properties, mixing system, and temperature. Higher concentrations are used when preparing spotting fluids, packer fluids or other special systems. Maximum viscosity is normally attained after a complete circulation of the fluid thru the bit, so care must be taken not to over-treat upon initial mixing.
Advantages
  • Used as a gelling and viscosifier
  • Oil Based Material
  • Increase carrying capacity and suspension properties
  • Improve cutting removal
