PUREGOLD CLEANDRILL: For drilling operations where clay-based drilling fluids are restricted and a biodegradable drilling fluid is recommended. Industry standard for use in horizontal and vertical remediation wells.

CLAY CUTTER: Is to be used on any size HDD bore. Using CLAY CUTTER will greatly reduce or eliminate clay cuttings from sticking to each other and to the drilling tools. Swelling of the bore will be reduced or eliminated. Rotation and pullback pressures will be significantly reduced.

CLAY CUTTER DRY: Should be added to fresh or saltwater drilling fluids to increase cuttings returns and reduce torque and drag when drilling in reactive clay soils. Eliminates bit-balling and clay rings and can be used in conjunction with other CETCO products such as DRILL-TERGE.

DRILL-TERGE: Liquid solution of nonionic surfactant formulated to increase detergency and wetting properties of drilling fluids. Designed to work in fresh or saltwater to reduce torque and drag.

INSTA-VIS PLUS: Liquid polymer designed to improve drilling efficiency in both horizontal and vertical drilled holes through its rapid field mixing, viscosity development, and clay and shale inhibition. Can be used with VERSAFOAM PLUS to stiffen and can be used in brackish water. NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified.

INSTA-VIS DRY: Highly concentrated granular polymer ideal for sticky and swelling clays and shale. Increases rate of penetration and stabilizes the borehole while improving cohesion in sandy soil. Can be used in saltwater such as tidal conditions.

MACRO-FILL: Granular, super-absorbent solidification and loss circulation material. Rapidly absorbs and retains large volumes of water from aqueous solutions, but only expands 1% in volume.

PROSHOT: For use in a variety of soils types. Use as a stand-alone additive or in combination with SUPER GEL-X or HYDRAUL-EZ. Excellent product for HDD drilling in mixed conditions and can be used in saltwater.

REL-PAC: Natural cellulosic, granular polymer designed for building a low solids drilling fluid with increased stability. Forms a tight, thin filter cake that reduces fluid loss to the formation.

REL-PAC XTRA-LOW: Will help increase borehole stability by lowering filtrate and fluid loss more effectively than other PAC’s. Aids cleaning by not significantly raising viscosities and impeding flow. Helps control reactive formations by reducing available water and controls unconsolidated formations by reducing whole fluid loss.
