  • AMC MUD AID™

    Introducing the AMC MUD AID™ (Automated In-field Diagnosis) The only in-field, remotely monitored drilling fluid testing unit.

  • AMC ULW SRU™ featuring AMC MUD AID™

    As part of IMDEX’s Drilling Optimisation solution, the AMC MUD AID™ and AMC Ultra-light Solids Removal Unit™ (ULW SRU™) converge to optimise rate of penetration, core recovery and meters per bit, utilising the latest solids control, fluid analysis and remote tracking technology – all in an ultra light-weight design.

  • AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™

    AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ are compressed tablets made from highly swelling sodium bentonite coated with a biodegradable non-sticking film that retards the hydration time and when placed forms a flexible, non-toxic impermeable seal. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the unique coating that slows down the hydration process.

  • AMC BENTONITE PLUG™

    AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is designed for use as sealant for hole abandonment, casing seals or any vertical seal to prevent water movement up or down a borehole.
    AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is available in medium (M) (¼” – 3⁄8’’) and coarse (C) (3⁄8” – ¾”) grades.

  • AMC CLAY DOCTOR™

    AMC CLAY DOCTOR™ is a versatile modified encapsulating polymer used in water based drilling fluid systems to provide stability when encountering reactive clay and shale formations. AMC CLAY DOCTOR™’s charge density and molecular weight are uniquely adjusted to maximise encapsulation with only a minimal increase in viscosity.

  • AMC COREWELL™

    AMC COREWELL™ is a sophisticated, multifunctional single sack system created especially for diamond coring and slim-hole drilling activities. AMC COREWELL™ provides superior core protection and side wall stabilisation. AMC COREWELL™ helps secure a native state, preserved sample allowing for more reliable core analysis data which ultimately leads to more accurate resource evaluations. AMC COREWELL™ employs physical mechanisms that entrap unconsolidated soils and cuttings to prevent dispersion.

  • AMC CR 650™

    AMC CR 650™ is a high molecular weight, powdered polymer which has been developed to improve cuttings encapsulation as well as helping to stabilise the formation. AMC CR 650™ forms a protective polymer film on the drill pipe and bit as well as on the walls of the bore hole which helps to provide lubrication when drilling in troublesome formations. It is ideally suited for use in horizontal directional drilling, water well, mining and tunnelling applications.

  • AMC GEL XTRA™

    AMC GEL XTRA™ is a modified premium grade Wyoming sodium bentonite formulated to ensure ease of mixing with superior mud making qualities in fresh water. AMC GEL XTRA™ is designed for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling operations.

  • AMC GEL™

    AMC GEL™ is a modified, high quality grade bentonite formulated to ensure a high quality bentonite mud can be mixed with ease. AMC GEL™ provides viscosity and gelling to most water based fluids while also contributing to fluid loss control.

  • AMC MAXI VIS™

    AMC MAXI VIS™ is a mixed-metal oxide (MMO) product that provides an enhanced rheological profile and stability for exceptional hole cleaning and suspension in a package that is easy to design, mix and maintain. AMC MAXI VIS™ creates a highly shear-thinning fluid with a low plastic viscosity (PV), high Yield Point (YP) and flat gels. AMC MAXI VIS™ provides excellent solids suspension and easily screens at any flow rate.

  • AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY™

    AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY™ is a specially formulated, tenacious, barium-based grease recommended for use on diamond drill rods to reduce vibration and friction between the rod and casing or rock strata. AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY™ is particularly effective in dry hole drilling, is thermally stable and will perform in a variety of harsh conditions. AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY™ has superior adhesion characteristics designed to provide exceptional film strength when subjected to extreme down hole pressures.

  • AMC XAN BORE™

    AMC XAN BORE™ is a premium quality biopolymer powder designed to provide maximum solids suspension and hole cleaning in vertical and highly deviated wells as well as horizontal directional drilling applications. AMC XAN BORE™ is a distinctive product, able to produce a thixotropic shear thinning fluid. AMC XAN BORE™ also acts as a very effective mud filtrate viscosifier.
