CETCO recently announced that its REL-PAC XTRA-LOW product is now certified to NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60.
REL-PAC XTRA-LOW is a low viscosity, non-fermenting dry polymer designed for use as a more efficient filtration control additive in a variety of drilling fluid applications. Intended for use in bentonite and polymer fluids.
REL-PAC XTRA-LOW will help increase borehole stability by lowering filtrate and fluid loss more effectively than other PAC’s. REL-PAC XTRA-LOW aids cleaning by not significantly raising viscosities and impeding flow. Helps control reactive formations by reducing available water and controls unconsolidated formations by reducing fluid loss. It is advantageous to use this product as the lower viscosity provides more flexibility in matching the fluid to the formation while maintaining lower annular pressure and it is equally effective in a sand and clay when drilling through multiple formations.
REL-PAC XTRA-LOW can be used in several drilling applications including waterwell, HDD, geotechnical, geothermal, mining and foundation. It can also be used in conjunction with drilling fluids recycling equipment as it will not blind vibratory screening equipment. The product can be introduced slowly through a venturi hopper or polymer eductor.
