C/S GRANULAR & CETCO® CRUMBLES

C/S GRANULAR and CETCO CRUMBLES are granular bentonite products composed of polymer-free, dried bentonite in various mesh sizes. CETCO CRUMBLES are coarser in size than C/S GRANULAR. Both are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

CETCO® COARSE CHIPS

CETCO COARSE CHIPS are natural sodium bentonite screened to 3/8 inch to 3/4 inch in size. PUREGOLD MEDIUM CHIPS are natural sodium bentonite screened to 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch in size. Both are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

DE-CHLOR

DE-CHLOR is a white granular crystal that neutralizes chlorine in municipal water. Chlorine in water supplies can destroy polymer drilling fluids.

HYDRO-PAC

HYDRO-PAC is a dry hybrid-polymer drilling fluid. HYDRO-PAC is an innovative breakthrough in drilling fluids and containment fluids. HYDRO-PAC can be mixed directly into saltwater and suitable for drilling in all types of estuarial and littoral conditions as well as fresh water zones.

INSTA-CLEAR DRY

INSTA-CLEAR DRY is designed to lower pH, break emulsions, and remove high levels of suspended solids. INSTA-CLEAR DRY is a specially blended dry granular product designed for both polymer slurry and water filled boreholes.

INSTA-FLOC

INSTA-FLOC is a high performance selective liquid flocculant used in clear water drilling and low solids drilling. INSTA-FLOC is a high molecular weight, non-ionic polyacrylamide and is extremely effective in removing fine-grained solids suspended in the slurry.

MAGMA FIBER

MAGMA FIBER is a specially formulated, extrusion spun mineral fiber. This coarse, long flexible fiber will give increased circulation by bridging and plugging off voids, fractures, and all types of permeable formations. MAGMA FIBER is compatible with all oil and water based muds and emulsion.

MUD BALANCE

Mud weight measurement tool

MULTI-SEAL

MULTI-SEAL is a select blend of four types of materials normally used for lost circulation. A flake material (cellophane), a granular material (nut shells), fine fibrous material (ground paper), and coarse fibers (cedar fibers). MULTI-SEAL is blended in the proper ratio to produce the most effective seal. MULTI-SEAL contains no fermenting materials or materials that chemically change the rheological properties of the fluid, even polymer mud’s.

PREMIUM GEL®

PREMIUM GEL is a 200 mesh, 90 bbl yield sodium bentonite for freshwater drilling, slurry walls, and tunnel boring. PREMIUM GEL complies with API 13A Section 9, Specifications for Drilling Fluid Materials.

PUREGOLD® GEL

PUREGOLD GEL is a minimum 80 - 90 bbl yield, organic-free, untreated, high quality bentonite drilling fluid designed for the groundwater monitoring industry. It complies with API 13A Section 10, Specifications for Drilling Fluid Materials and is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

PUREGOLD® MEDIUM CHIPS

CETCO COARSE CHIPS are natural sodium bentonite screened to 3/8 inch to 3/4 inch in size. PUREGOLD MEDIUM CHIPS are natural sodium bentonite screened to 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch in size. Both are certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

REL-PAC®

REL-PAC is a non-fermenting granular polymer designed for building a low solids drilling fluid with increased borehole stability. REL-PAC is a highly dispersible polymer, which prevents the formation of hard lumps or fish eyes, for maximum product efficiency.

SAND CONTENT KIT

Sand content measurement tool

SAND SEALANT/MULTI-SEAL

SAND SEALANT a specially blended dry powdered mineral and MULTI-SEAL a dry select blend of four types of materials a flake material, a granular material, a fine fibrous material, and coarse fibers used for fluid loss control. SAND SEALANT/MULTI-SEAL added to a hole filled with SHORE PAC slurry, reduces slurry seepage into saturated open porous permeable cobbles, sands, and gravels.

SHORE PAC®

SHORE PAC is an easy mixing, water soluble, polymer supplied as a granular powder. SHORE PAC is designed for preparation of viscous earth-reinforcing fluids or slurries for a variety of drilling, trenching, and walling applications in the geo-construction industry.

SLURRY BUSTER DRY

SLURRY BUSTER DRY is an industrial grade oxidizing agent used to breakdown SHORE PAC polymer slurry. This white granular solid dissolves completely when applied to SHORE PAC polymer slurry. The active ingredient is a powerful class III oxidizer that ensures rapid and complete slurry degradation. SLURRY BUSTER DRY is a highly effective clean-up solution.

SODA ASH

SODA ASH is the common name for sodium carbonate, which separates calcium into sodium and carbonate ions in solution.

SODIUM BICARBONATE

SODIUM BICARBONATE , NaHCO3 is used to lower the pH of drilling slurry from a pH of 12-13 (alkaline) to a neutral pH range of 8-9. A white powder, SODIUM BICARBONATE is also added to a base drilling fluid as a pH neutralizing additive. A buffer, SODIUM BICARBONATE is added to acidic water to raise the pH to 8-9.

STONE STOP

STONE STOP granular sealant is composed of polymer-free, dried minerals in various mesh sizes. STONE STOP is coarser in size than SAND SEALANT/MULTI-SEAL and controls slurry loss in extreme conditions.

SUPER THIN

SUPER THIN is a highly concentrated additive engineered to reduce drilling fluid viscosity, assist in settling solids, and can be used to disperse the filter cake created by a bentonite drilling fluid with continued circulation through the borehole. SUPER THIN is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals - Health Effects.

VENTURI MIXING HOPPER

Dry powder mixing tool
