AQUA-CLEAR® PFD concentrated liquid polymer dispersant provides superior mud and sediment removal from the producing formation and gravel pack. This product is also a highly effective mud thinner. AQUA-CLEAR® PFD dispersant contains no phosphates.
Available in 5 gallon container.
- As a mud thinner: Start by adding one pint of AQUA-CLEAR® PFD additive to 500 gals of mud or 250 ml/m³.
- Using borehole diameter and total length of screened interval calculate volume of borehole and then double that volume to determine the minimum volume to treat with AQUA-CLEAR® PFD.
- The purpose for doubling the volume is to compensate for the volume of water inside the screen, filter pack and formation interface.
Once the water volume is determined, calculate the required treatment volume of AQUA-CLEAR® PFD additive by the following formula:
AQUA-CLEAR® PFD (GALS OR LITERS) = 0.002 X WATER VOLUME (GALS OR LITERS)
This equates to one gallon of AQUQ-CLEAR® PFD for every 500 gals of water (0.2% volume) or 2.0L of AQUA-CLEAR® PFD for every m³ of water.
The above are generalized concentrations of AQUA-CLEAR® PFD Phosphate-Free Dispersant to be added to water-based drilling fluids. The ultimate usage concentration will be based on local geology, application and mixing efficiency.
