It is recommended that Soda Ash (sodium carbonate) be added to the make-up water prior to the addition of BORE-GEL® for reduction of excess calcium and pH adjustment.
The above are generalized concentrations of QUIK-GEL® viscosifier to be added to water-based drilling fluids. The ultimate usage concentration will be based on local geology, application and mixing efficiency.
