IM-BEN 134 has the following benefits:
- Is a pure product with no chemical additives and is non-peptized. This allows product to remain
Stable in elevated bottom-hole temperatures (BHT) .
- Has high purity and very low iron oxide, and is ideal where high iron oxide may cause a problem
With corrosion and contamination to the well.
- Cost effective means of building mud properties and adding viscosity for suspending drilled solids
Packaged in 25 and 50 KG multiwall paper sacks and in 1000 KG HDPE big bags.
