Bentonite

Bentonite is a sodium montmorillonite clay that expands when mixed with water. When wet its volume increases by about 13 times compared to its volume when dry. This quality allows it to tightly fill small and irregular spaces between the casing and the hole wall.

 

Baroid provides innovative products that have wide-ranging capabilities within diverse markets, supported by Baroid IDP field representatives with superior expertise in well site service providing solutions for each unique challenge.

There is a Baroid APP that can be downloaded on your IPhone or Android to assist in calculating the amount of product required to complete your project as well as product guides and technical contacts.

Canpipe has access to all of Baroid’s products, but the most popular and effective products we supply for our customers is as follows:

HOLEPLUG® 3/8

HOLEPLUG® 3/8

The 3/8″ HOLEPLUG® is screen-sized bentonite composed of a naturally occurring clay which is used to seal and plug earthen boreholes. The 3/8″ HOLEPLUG® material will travel through water standing in the hole and reach the bottom of the hole with minimum hydration or swelling (100% of the particles pass through 3/8” screen; all particles retained on 1/4” SCREEN).

Baroid has made the switch to plastic packaging to keep your Holeplug® intact and your product available for the job you want it for.  Days of soggy, broken and useless bags will no longer be an issue. 

APPLICATION / FUNCTION
Grouting annulus in all types of wells, particularly environmental monitoring well applications. Sealing above gravel packs. Plugging decommissioned boreholes. Stemming shotholes. Sealing around conductor pipe.

ADVANTAGES
NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. Helps prevent entry of surface water into boreholes. High swelling potential. In situ swelling to provide a superior seal with excellent casing stabilization. Helps prevent vertical movement of fluids in the hole between porous zones.

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT
Due to shipping and handling, a small amount of fine bentonite particles may be present. For optimum results, HOLEPLUG® bentonite should be poured over a mesh or screen with ¼” (6.4 mm) openings to “sift out” the smaller particles. The screen should be large enough (approx.1 yd² or 1m²) to be folded into a “V” shape to allow sifting while the product is being poured into the hole. Also, HOLEPLUG® bentonite should be poured slowly into standing water, if possible. Allow approximately two minutes to pour a 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) bag.

BENSEAL®

BENSEAL®

BENSEAL® granular (8-mesh), natural Wyoming sodium bentonite is used in the sealing and grouting of well casings and earthen structures. BENSEAL® is not recommended for use as a drilling mud.

APPLICATION / FUNCTION
Seal or grout plastic or steel casings in monitor and water well construction. Seal or plug abandoned boreholes. Seal leaking ponds, ditches and dams. Soil stabilization. Aid in controlling loss of circulation.

ADVANTAGES
NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. High swelling capacity. Prevents commingling of aquifers and contamination from surface.

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT
As a casing drill and drive operation 1. Dig a cone-shaped depression around casing. Depression should be 6”- 8” (152 - 203 mm) larger than the outside diameter of the casing and 2’- 3’ (60 - 75 cm) deep. 2. Keep cone-shaped depression filled with dry BENSEAL® while driving the casing.

EXAMPLE
When drilling and driving a 4” (102 mm) pipe, expect to use 2.5 lbs. of BENSEAL® sealing and plugging agent per foot of hole or 3.7 kg/meter of hole.

BAROID® BENTONITE PELLETS ¼”

BAROID® BENTONITE PELLETS ¼”

BAROID® BENTONITE PELLETS sealing and plugging material are compressed, shaped pellets of high-swelling, untreated sodium bentonite.

APPLICATION / FUNCTION Seal or grout plastic or steel casing. Isolate screen intervals, subsurface instrumentation and sampling zones. Provide a protective interface between gravel pack and cement grout. Plug abandoned earthen boreholes and cavities.

ADVANTAGES NSF/ANSI standard 60 certified. High swelling capacity in the presence of fresh water. No heat of hydration. Re-hydratable. After hydration, forms a semi-solid, flexible seal with permeability less than 1 x 10 - 8 cm/sec.

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT
1. Calculate the amount of BAROID® BENTONITE PELLETS sealing and plugging material required.
2. Pour pellets slowly from the surface to minimize bridging.
3. Calculate and monitor pellet addition amounts to ensure proper hole fill by measuring the position of the top of the plug after every few pails. Break up bridges as they occur.
4. Calculated volume should be applied to borehole.

pel-plug

PEL-PLUG

Pel-Plug TR30 is a clean, virtually odorless and easy to handle 3/8” bentonite pellet which combines the high quality yield of western sodium bentonite with a biodegradable non-sticking coating. This coating allows the pellets to be poured through standing water without sticking together, eliminating voids and bridging. Pellets should be allowed to hydrate for a minimum 4 hours (depending on water quality). Full hydration time is 24 hours.

Available in 50 lbs. pails

Features
1. Clean, dust-free, and easy to handle.
2. Non-toxic and non-polluting.
3. Can be poured directly into place for the highest density per cubic foot (accumulation) of any existing grouting method, dry or wet.
4. No mixing required; thus, eliminates the needs for large and expensive grouting units, eliminates the problem of over mixing, and reduces labor costs.
5. Do not disintegrate upon swelling; seals are tough but flexible and do not crack when subjected to movement.
