UNI-BORE HDD Bentonite

UNI-BORE – a prepared mixture of drilling fluid based on sodium bentonite for MINI and MIDI classes for work in clay as well as sandy clay. For drilling in more complicated soil (clay, sand, gravel, etc.) or MAXI and MEGA classes, it is recommended to use polymer additives (depends on soil condition);

UNI-BORE HDD system provides suspension, wellbore stability, and filtration control. The system also helps reduce torque and drag for water-based applications and is designed to minimize environmental impact.

Typical Physical Properties

Physical appearance ……………………… Light tan/gray-green powder

Specific gravity………………………………………………………….2.3-2.6

Bulk density……………………………….48-521b/ft3 (769-833 kg/m)

Applications
UNI-BORE HDD system provides suspension, improves wellbore stability, controls filtration, and helps reduce torque and drag in boring­ fluid applications. It is a cost-effective product for achieving viscosity for hole cleaning, gel strength for cuttings suspension and transport, wellbore stability, fluid-loss control and filter-cake quality in freshwater and seawater applications. Typical concentrations of the Uni-Bore HDD system range from 15-451b/100 gal (18-54 kg/m3).

Applications

  • One-sack system provides ease of mixing and reduces the number of products required to prepare boring fluid
  • Hydrates more than other types of clays and is best for generating viscosity for hole cleaning, developing gels for suspension and controlling filtration
  • Unique size, shape and high surface area provide superior filtration characteristics
  • Provides lubricity and wellbore stability for ease of drilling and stability of water-sensitive clays and shales
  • Non-toxic and environmentally safe

Toxicity and Handling
Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described in the Material Safety Data Sheets

Storage
Store at a well-ventilated area away from sources of heat or ignition
