Highly Dispersable Filtration Control Additive
QUIK-TROL GOLD LV highly dispersible, low viscosity filtration control additive provides filtration control in most water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity.
QUIK-TROL GOLD LV filtration control additive, when added to an AQUAGEL, QUIK-GEL or BORE-GEL slurry, yields a low filtrate drilling fluid system suitable for drilling in water sensitive formations.
Applications and Functions
- Filtration control in fresh or brackish water-based drilling fluids
- Borehole stability in water sensitive formations
- Encapsulation of shale to prevent swelling and disintegration
- Minimized rod chatter, rotational torque and circulating pressure
- Improved hole cleaning and core recovery
- Enhanced foam properties to improve cuttings transport in air/foam drilling
- NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60 certified
- Disperses readily at low shear rates
- Effective in fresh, salt and brackish water-based drilling fluids
- Tolerant of harsh environments and contaminants
- Compatible with other Baroid drilling fluid additives
