MixingRequirements: Use conventional hopper or premix and “blend” into circulating mudsystem while drilling. In high salinities, pre wet with fresh water ifpossible.

 

Notes:It is desirable to optimize solids control equipment whiledrilling. CLAY PRO is consumed on drilled solids and on the well bore.Therefore, for daily treatments we recommend using a FACTOR of 1.5 times thedesired concentration of CLAY PRO in the mud times the calculated volume (bbl)of the new hole drilled. For best r e s u l t s, the product should be addedcontinuously over 2 to 3 circulations while drilling. For Mud-up mix at ratesnot exceeding 60-70 sacks per 8 hour tour while drilling.
