Organophilic Clay Use For Oil Drilling Mud 

Camp Shinning organophilic clay is a wet process improved viscosifier gelling additive.Organophilic bentonite as a thickening agent in suspension and oilfield chemicals,it could maintains suspension over a wide temperature range in the base oil of diesel oil, mineral oil based invert fluids and synthetic oil.

  • Effectively suspends weighting materials and other solids
  • Maintains suspension over a wide temperature range
  • Eliminates need for chemical activators
  • Is easy to disperse and rapid yielding
  • Suspends weighting materials and other solids
  • Maintains suspension over a wide temperature range

  grades of organophilic clay in oil drilling fluids. 

 CP-250A  /  CP-982  /  CP-992 /CP-169 / CP-EZ / CP-150

Note: ++ Recommended
+ Suitable
– Not Suitable

*Considering different geological conditions and depth of a oil drilling well, Oil drilling company may choose different oil for drilling fluid, such as diesel, mineral oil, synthetic oil and crude oil.

Normally, our organoclay CP-169, CP-EZ and CP-982 are recommended for diesel, and CP-250A and CP992 can be applied  in not only diesel, but also in synthetic oil, mineral oil and crude oil.

CP169 is a economical grade for diesel. Its performance can be enhanced when polar activator in moderation is added. So, especially it is recommended for water-in-oil drilling fluid because small dosage of water can act as polar activator.

*CP-EZ and CP-982 are self-activated grades and can be disperse without polar activator. They are recommended when diesel based drilling fluid contain no water or other external polar activator.

A small amount of water (0.1 0.2% by weight  of total formula) added to mud further speeds the gelation process and optimizes organoclay use *CP-250A and cp-992 have better temperature stability and gelation efficiency in not only diesel, but also synthetic oil, mineral oil and crude oil. They effect rapid dispersibility and contribute initial viscosity,and require no external polar activator.   

Organoclays CP- 250A has better YP value and temperature stability than CP-992.
