What is the purpose of bentonite in drilling? The answer will vary depending on your location and the type of drilling you do, but it is used for a variety of purposes, including borehole stabilization, soil cutting removal, and increasing the viscosity of drilling mud
Organoclay Bentonite is a organophilic clay.organoclay is a kind of organo clay rheological additive. It is used in systems of non-polar to medium polarity aliphatic and other solvents (ketones, ester, ether esters, alcohols, aromatic).
- High efficiency
- The gel is of light colour and high clarity
- Easy to use, no need to pregel
- Eliminate polar activator
- Consistent development of rheology
- Can be used to post correct
organoclay bentonite is used in the following applications:
- Sealants &adhesives
Composition Organic derivative of a montmorillonite clay
Appearance Fine powder,white
Moisture content (105℃,2hr) ≤3.5%
Loss on ignition (1000℃) 30%-34%
Bulk density 0.35~0.45g/cm3
Fineness (<74μm, %) ≥98%
Dispersion fineness (μm) ≤40
Organoclay can be added directly in powder without polar activator and making pre-gel. But better performance may achieve if polar activator is added and pre-gel procedure is affected.
The addition is recommended to be before grinding procedure to get the best effectiveness. Addition level is commonly 0.2%~1.0%.
What Is Organo Bentonite?
Organo bentonite is a kind of additive with good suspension performance. It can produce a certain viscosity and effectively control the viscosity. In oil-based mud, organo bentonite clay can be used not only in mineral oil, but also in diesel oil and synthetic oil. The organobentonites produced by Camp Shinning can maintain good stability under high temperature and high pressure. Generally, the temperature can be 350 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, and still maintain good stability.
Of course, the organo bentonite clay produced by Camp Shinning can also be widely used in paint production, coating production, ink production, grease production and other fields, playing a better role in anti sagging, thixotropy and anti settlement, etc
What is the application function of organo bentonite?
Organo bentonite can be widely used in oil-based mud.
Effectively improve hole cleanliness during drilling and workover operations.
Keep the suspension function for a long time in packing fluids and casing packs
What are the Advantages of Organo Bentonites?
- First of all, keep the stability under the premise of high temperature. Generally, from 160 ℃ to 220 ℃, Camp Shinning’s organo bentonite can achieve better stability.
- Aids in filtration control
What are the Typical Characteristics of Organo Bentonite ?
The most typical feature of the organo bentonite produced by Camp Shinning is that it looks like white powder. Well, its specific gravity is about 1.7.
What is the Packing Method of Organo Bentonite?
The organic bentonite is packed in paper bags, the inner lining is PE film, can play a moisture-proof role, generally stored in a dry environment, such a bag is enough,usually organo bentonite is packed in 22.68 kg, each bag is equal to 50 pounds, there are also 25 kg, also accept customer requirements of customized..
Recommended use of organobentonites.
Slowly add 2-15 pounds of organo bentonite through the hopper.We recommend adding a small amount of water to reduce the yield time. At the same time, adding a certain amount of water can also play an effective role in dispersion.
Firstly, recommended Level of Camp Shinning organo bentonite are typically 0.2% to 2.0% of the weight of the system.
When organo bentonite is used in formulation, polar activator is needed. Polar activator is acetone/water(95/5). The dosage of activator is 20%-30% of the weight of Camp Shinning organoclay. And also high shear can promote the dispersing of organo bentonite.
Adding procedure as follows:
If condition permits, heat the base oil to 60~70℃
Add organo bentonite while stirring, addition level is 7%-10% of the total formulation. Stir 5~10minutes
Add polar activator, addition level is 2%-3% of the total formulation. Then add other additives, stir 25~30minutes.
Use pump to help it pass colloid grinding and homogenizer. Deair, filtrate, pack.
Note: With High-speed dispersant of grinding machine, and properly prolong the dispersing time, better gelatin performance can be reached.
The formulation which uses organo bentonite as thickener will own high dropping point, thus can be used under high temperature and presents good impermeability and water resistance.
