When writing our January 2019 cover story focusing on slurry handling and mud disposal a common theme came up that the general public does not know enough about the fluid used in HDD and microtunnelling applications. One of the main components of the fluid is bentonite, a clay that is used in many common consumer products. We reached out to Wyo-Ben Inc. to share with us some of the more common consumer uses of bentonite. Wyo-Ben Inc. is a privately held, family-owned business.
