Liquid Clay / Shale Inhibitor

CDF Clay-Cap

A specialized product that is an alternative to bagged Potassium Chloride (KCL). Clay-Cap contains minute amounts of chlorides; it is composed of a sophisticated mildly cationic complex that functions much like KCL to control shale and clay activity.

Application:

Clay-Cap provides effective shale inhibition properties to water-based fluids without the chlorides associated with KCL based systems. A 2 % KCL solution contains 9700 ppm of chloride while the equivalent CDF Clay-Cap contains only 165 ppm of chlorides. The significantly reduced chloride concentration greatly reduces the environmental risks associated with the use of KCL fluids. The shale stabilizing properties of Clay-Cap are significantly enhanced when used in conjunction with encapsulating polymers.

Advantages:

  • Extremely economical
  • Excellent shale and clay stabilizer
  • Improves productivity
  • Effective at all pH levels
  • Compatible with all polymer systems
  • Compatible with contaminants, hard water, and mild salinity
  • Improves core recovery
  •  

Powdered Core Recovery Polymer

CDF Clay Core

Produces a complete fluid system for drilling designed to protect exposed formation, imparting sample integrity and maximize the recovery. Coreguard is an easy to-use readily dispersible product that unlike many other fluid systems does not require additional components to enhance properties. Coreguard forms a micro-network structure similar to a three-dimensional web that layers out over the exposed formations effectively encapsulating clay and shale surfaces to support and protect. Coreguard combines specific fluid properties to ensure an immaculate sample is recovered.

Advantages:

  • Economical
  • Single component multifunctional system
  • Compatible with slim hole drilling
  • Enhances hole stability
  • Provides sample protection
  • Maintains sample integrity
  • Controls dispersion
  • Improves solids separation on surface
  • Readily disperses in low shear environments
  • Environmentally Responsible
