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 117™ provides superior shale and clay inhibition in polymer based drilling fluids. AMC 117™ reduces the potential for bit balling, torque and drag as well as other clay and shale related issues. All this is delivered by a product that is more environmentally acceptable than the inhibitor typically used, Potassium Chloride.
AMC 1300™ is a liquid non-ionic polymer specifically designed to perform in fresh water, saline environments and calcium chloride brines. AMC 1300™ will provide viscosity while also providing some lubrication to the drilling fluid resulting in improved hole stability and core recovery in broken, friable formations.
AMC 133X™ is a rapidly yielding, high molecular weight polymer in liquid form that provides viscosity without the problems associated with mixing powdered polymers. AMC 133X™ will help improve core recovery, particularly in clays and shales and highly fractured formations. It provides cuttings encapsulation as well as helping to stabilise the formation.
AMC 206™ is a rapidly yielding, high molecular weight polymer in liquid form that provides viscosity without the problems associated with mixing powdered polymers. AMC 206™ will help improve core recovery, particularly in clays and shales and highly fractured formations. It provides cuttings encapsulation as well as helping to stabilise the formation.
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 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 BIODEGRADABLE ROD GREASE™ is a biodegradable non-toxic grease formulated from vegetable oils, specialised tackifiers and thickening agents to produce a very stable compound suited for diamond drilling applications in areas where environmental protection is of paramount importance. AMC BIODEGRADABLE ROD GREASE™ contains no mineral oils, heavy metals, barium, environmentally unfriendly solvents, PSB’s, copper or zinc compounds. Through enhanced surface sticking characteristics AMC BIODEGRADABLE ROD GREASE™ offers superior performance to reduce vibration and frictional drag between the rod and casing or rock strata.
AMC BIT GUARD™ is a vegetable oil based lubricant that has been developed as a surface-acting rate of penetration (ROP) enhancer and is designed for use in water-based drilling fluid systems. Its properties were designed for the operating parameters at the face of an impregnated diamond bit giving improved penetration rates and extended bit life. A fluid system containing AMC BIT GUARD™ promotes hydrophobic coating on both the bit and cuttings surfaces. This prevents clay and shale cuttings from balling up the bit and blocking nozzles, improving bit cutting efficiency and increasing penetration rates.
Down the borehole, you can’t always predict when or how things will go wrong. AMC’s patent pending Borehole Optimisation System (AMC BOS™) anticipates fluid loss, lost circulation and unstable zones, even in the most difficult conditions – making operations smoother and more predictable.
AMC CLAY DOCTOR L™ 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 L™’s charge density and molecular weight are uniquely adjusted to maximise encapsulation with only a minimal increase in viscosity.
