Product Sheet ECOTROL F Filtration-Control Additive
Tight HPHT fluid loss control at a low product concentration.
ECOTROL F filtration-control additive can be used in all oil- or synthetic-based mud systems.
This product readily disperses into a fluid system through standard mixing equipment, thus minimizing the potential for polymer ‘fish-eyes.’
Complementing the emulsifiers of oil- and synthetic-based mud systems, ECOTROL F additives provide tight HPHT fluid-loss control at low concentrations. It has excellent dispersion and solubility in paraffins even at low temperatures and does not plug downhole screens. ECOTROL F filtration-control additive is effective in 100%-oil applications at temperatures up to 191 degC [375 degF].
|Typical Physical Properties|
|Physical appearance||Free-flowing white powder|
|Solubility in water||Nonsoluble|
|Solubility in oil-based fluids||Swells in most base oils|
Add ECOTROL F additive at concentrations between 2.9–11.4 kg/m3 [1 to 4 lbm/bbl] depending on fluid-loss-control requirements.
Based on unique technology, ECOTROL F filtration-control additive has been modified to provide superior high shear stability without polymer degradation.
ECOTROL F filtration-control additive contributes to the rheology of the fluid by keeping the low-shear viscosity elevated and maintaining some suspension capability of the mud in HPHT conditions.
Finally, ECOTROL F filtration-control additive enhances the required synergy between organophilic clays and traditional filtration-control additives in order to obtain optimal HPHT fluid-loss performance.
Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described in the safety data sheet.
