Flocculants

Enhanced solids separation in clear brines

Enhance solids separation from clean brine fluids and improve filtration efficiency with our specially formulated flocculants.

FILTER FLOC polymeric filtration flocculant

FILTER FLOC polymeric filtration flocculant is designed to flocculate residual displacement solids, enabling solids to be removed from brine-based completion fluids.

SAFE-FLOC II surfactant and solvent blended filtration aid

SAFE-FLOC II filtration aid is used to clean surface tanks, lines, and equipment before filtered brines are received. For reclamation of heavy brine systems, the filtration aid is added to the brine at a concentration that will effectively flocculate and float the dispersed solids.

SAFE-FLOC III clear brine flocculant

SAFE-FLOC III clear brine flocculant is a blend of nonylphenol-free surfactants, flocculants, and high-flash-point solvents designed to flocculate and suspend insoluble iron solids in completion brines. It has an improved environmental quality over a previous flocculant used in the brine reclamation process to remove iron.
