AMC BIOCIDE G is a low toxicity, broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. AMC BIOCIDE G is a more environmentally acceptable alternative to glutaraldehyde and does not cause skin sensitisation and dermatitis that can occur through the handling of glutaraldehyde making it safer to handle.
AMC GLUTE is a broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. It is available in three grades; 50, 24 and 9 which have varying handling and transportation classifications.
AMC WATER CONDITIONER is a blend of water treating agents used for the treatment of water containing large amounts of magnesium, calcium and other metal ions that have a detrimental effect on the yield of drilling fluid additives such as bentonite or polymers.
CAUSTIC SODA or Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) is used as a source of hydroxyl ions in water based fluids to control pH.
CITRIC ACID is used to reduce pH, precipitate soluble calcium and sequester iron and other metal poly-cations.
LIME or Ca(OH)2, is used in both water based drilling fluids and synthetic based drilling fluids to provide an economical source hydroxyl ions (OH–) and calcium ions (Ca2+). LIME is used in a variety of applications including increasing pH, flocculating bentonite muds, activating emulsifiers in synthetic based muds, controlling corrosion and removing soluble carbonate (CO32-)
MAGNESIUM OXIDE is used to provide alkalinity control for all water based systems and is compatible with freshwater, brines, and brine polymer systems. MAGNESIUM OXIDE dissolves in water to provide a pH of approximately 10.3. At this pH, no more magnesium oxide will dissolve with any remaining undissolved product dissolving if the pH falls. This creates a pH buffer that is safer to use than caustic soda.
SODA ASH is a free flowing powder also known as sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) used in a fluid system to precipitate calcium (hardness) and increase alkalinity (pH).
SODIUM BICARBONATE, commonly referred to as Bicarb, is used in water based fluids as a source of bicarbonate ions. Bicarbonate ions precipitate calcium and reduce pH. SODIUM BICARBONATE is principally used to treat cement contamination.
SODIUM SULPHITE helps effectively scavenge soluble oxygen from water-based drilling fluid systems. SODIUM SULPHITE also helps extend the life of organic polymers by eliminating conditions that promote their thermal degradation.
