CETCO. (Drilling Fluids).
Super Gel-X is an easy mixing, high viscosity 200 bbl. yield fresh water drilling fluid. Produced from Wyoming sodium bentonite, Super Gel-X may be used for all types of freshwater mud rotary drilling. Special formulation and high yielding properties reduces solids and increases lifting power. Super Gel-X helps removes cuttings; cools and lubricates a bit; stabilizes boreholes; and helps prevent loss circulation. Prior to mixing, acidic and hard water should be treated with soda ash to a pH of 8.5-9.5. Level of water purity will affect bentonite performance. For best results, add Super Gel-X slowly through a jet/hopper mixer. Circle No. 195
