FLO-PLEX fluid-loss-control agent is a polysaccharide derivative used to control filtration in the DRILPLEX system at recommended concentrations. FLO-PLEX additive will not destroy the low-end rheology of the DRILPLEX system as observed with conventional anionic fluid-loss-control agents such as CMC and PAC. FLO-PLEX additive is effective in seawater fluids, but all hardness should be treated out before the FLO-PLEX product is added. FLO-PLEX additive may be used in any other type of fluid where starches and cellulosic additives are permitted. The temperature stability of FLO-PLEX agent is about 250°F (120°C), but may be extended to 300°F (149°C) by the addition of a thermal stability agent such as PTS-200* additive. FLO-PLEX additive is resistant to bacterial degradation.
