Sorbitan Oleate Application

Sorbitan monostearate is used as a stabilizer and emulsifier for drilling mud.

sorbitan monolaurate is widely used in paint coatings, just like organoclay bentonite.

 In face cream, cosmetics can use a large number of such products,sorbitan monooleate can make lotion more stable and obvious dispersion performance.

Polysorbth is worth your use.

Sorbitan Oleate is widely used in ice cream and other foods or baked goods. This is a surfactant.

Here, we will provide a detailed description of the application and the excellent performance of this product in different fields. We believe that these chemical properties will greatly enhance the chemical effect during production.

Sorbitan oleate has very similar application products to organoclay bentonite in many fields. Their common application areas include cosmetics, oilfield drilling coatings, lubricants, and so on. They only exhibit different performance and advantages in their common application areas.

In the application of cosmetics.Sorbitan oleate It can be used in face cream, lotion and other related cosmetics. It can form a stable lotion and has mild surfactant properties. It can help dissolve grease and make the product have a better smooth texture.Why is this also? One of the reasons why this product has been widely used by many cosmetics companies over the years of use.

Our focus Sorbitan oleate is still on the application in oil field drilling. When organic bentonite and this product are both applied to some reverse drilling mud and oil fracturing applications, their roles are different. Organophilic clay bentonite can be used as a better-suspending agent. Sorbitan oleate, is a very good emulsifier and stabilizer, widely used in drilling mud, which is mainly based on oil based systems.

In the use of lubricating grease, Sorbitan oleate can mainly emulsify mineral oil, providing good stability and lubricity for its entire formula. It is generally used in a large number of Cutting fluid and metal processing lubricants, so we say it is a good additive in water-based lubricants, but the difference is that organic bentonite is suitable for oil based system lubricants.

In the field of coatings and paints, it is widely used as a good pigment, dispersant, and wetting agent in paints. It can stably reflect the stability of raw materials and help them fully disperse, which is why it is an indispensable additive in the paint and coating industry.

Of course, the main application of Sorbitan oleate is still in the food industry. As an emulsifier in food, such as chocolate and margarine in ice cream, this product is needed in baked food. It can reduce the interfacial tension between oil and water to help stabilize lotion and prevent the separation of ingredients.

As a pharmaceutical preparation, such as gel and Salve, this product is needed. It is a g oil soluble active ingredient and emulsify oil.

In brief, it has become a conventional component in water in oil or oil in water systems in many fields, and its main role is still to stabilize the lotion to dissolve oil and disperse particles,  It can make dispersion  more sufficient.

It has to be mentioned here that in the field of rubber and plastics, sorbitol oleate is used as a release agent and a processing aid for plastics. Its main function is to improve fluidity and prevent adhesion.

Here we want to talk about when using Sorbitan oleate in oilfield drilling.

Firstly, let’s talk about his performance of Sorbitan oleate.

In oilfield drilling, it can increase the lubricity of the drilling fluid, thereby reducing torque and resistance. This is similar to the effect of organoclay bentonite in oil based mud.

 Another obvious characteristic of it is its good lipophilicity. It can prevent the agglomeration of particles, drilling chips, etc.

At the same time, as a stable lotion stabilizer and chlorine reagent, it can be used in oil-based mud to stabilize the dispersion of salt water in oil-based drilling fluid, and this effect is very obvious.

Here we will first mention the dosage you used for Sorbitan oleate.

We all know that concentration is very important for the entire formula, so what factors determine concentration? Firstly, it is determined by factors such as the content of temperature objects, the presence of water pens and other additives, which determine the concentration of the entire formula. We must be very clear about this.

If we use a higher quality product, it will make the whole formula have a higher stability of lotion, but we should also pay attention to the trade-off, because the very high quality will lead to a negative situation, that is, the viscosity will be very large, which will make the annual increase disproportionately, which is not particularly good for the formula itself.

 So it is very important to have a good and stable measurement, and in some low solid drilling fluids, 3-4 pounds per barrel is usually used. High temperature and high pressure wells may need to reach 6 pounds, and these data per barrel are for your reference only. We suggest conducting our own experiments to obtain the quality that truly suits your formula, which is more scientific and worthy of praise.

Sorbitan oleate s chemical properties are of great interest to everyone, and we will also know some of its related performance properties. Here, we will specifically list the following points for your reference.

This is a non-toxic and biodegradable disease, and a chemical additive that can be applied in offshore drilling is also an additive for oil-based mud.

Sorbitan oleate can always maintain good stability within a relatively wide pH range. Of course, our general recommended pH range is between 6 and 10, and its stability performance is the best, which is a reference data for you.

Sorbitan oleate can make the molecular structure have good parentage and hydrophilicity, and is a very good surfactant.

It can make liquid or waxy flakes appear and dissolve more easily in mud. Usually, when used at the optimal concentration, it can be an effective emulsifier and lubricant for reverse drilling mud. Its quality, lotion characteristics and temperature conditions determine its performance level.

Here, we also want to provide a specific explanation of the usage method. This usage method is for you to use as a reference during testing, and of course, you can also use your own practice to come up wioht rho a workflow that is suitable for ymework.

We recommend using products with 2 to 6 concentrations in each barrel of drilling fluid. If it’s some high-temperature wells, we suggest you use a higher concentration.

Usually, we recommend using it in combination with organophilic clay bentonite and other emulsifiers to achieve the stability of a formula, especially under high pressure and high-temperature conditions.

We suggest that the dosage you add should be kept in a stable range, because overuse of this product will double your viscosity, which will lead to a decrease in the stability of a lotion, so you should decide different dosage according to different application fields.

You can use a hopper through some equipment to add more stable and effective shear to the mud system, which will help other formula products better blend and disperse in the fluid.

sorbitan oleate can be used together with organophilic clay bentonites in oil-based drilling fluids?

The first answer is yes, they can be used together in oil-based drilling fluids, and the combination of these two additives has good synergistic effects.

Of course, all of our answers are based on our experiments and are for your reference only. You can draw the appropriate operating procedures and dosage for your formula based on your own experimental conclusions.

Organic bentonite clay is also a kind of organic clay|organoclay. It is used to enhance the viscosity of oil drilling fluid, but also to enhance the suspension performance. This dehydration performance can be used as an emulsifier and lotion stabilizer to prevent dispersed brine drops from being rejected by the external phase, that is, to prevent them from caking.

When they are used together in the same formula, there is a foundation to provide high-quality structure, and Sorbitan oleate can prevent them from migrating out of the structure, which provides the stability of the entire lotion. 

Sorbitan oleate, It has lubricity and water loss control ability, while organic clay increases viscosity and suspension ability, thus this combination solves the problem of drilling fluid anti loss performance.

Sorbitan oleate,He added the lotion properties provided by organobentonite clay.To maintain relative stability in the entire dairy industry under high temperature and pressure operations.When used together, our recommended dosage is based on 2-4 cans of Meitu organic bentonite and two knives and rods, depending on the specific drilling conditions.

We suggest you customize the stability of lotion by adjusting the dosage and proportion of the two additives and their concentration.Even the stability of rheological properties can be achieved by adjusting the ratio of the two additives.

The above is a brief introduction to him. If you still have some questions and do not receive answers, you can directly contact our technical department. We will provide you with more technical support and assistance in the field of drilling mud applications.

At the same time, we are willing to provide free samples of rheology modifier for you to test and discuss better usage methods with you. Please feel free to contact us.
