HIGHLY ACTIVE BENTONITES FOR CONTROLLED RHEOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE

The high proportion of the mineral species montmorillonite provides a unique structure with very high activity. TRUGEL™ enables key drilling functionalities:

  • Provides thixotropic behavior to both hold and transport cuttings in suspension, depending on shear conditions
  • Flat, plate-like particle deposition creates an impermeable cake on the walls of the drill hole
  • Stabilizes and maintains the drill hole
  • Maintains rheological performance and limits filtrate loss at high temperatures (400+)


Product Information

TRUGEL™ API 13A grade premium bentonite not only forms a protective filter cake to control fluid loss, it also reduces NPT caused by differential stuck pipe.
