  • 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™

    AMC BENTONITE PELLETS™ are a highly compressed pellet made from premium sodium bentonite. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the highly compressive nature of the pellet.

  • 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 BORE HOLE STABILISER™

    AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER™ is a multifunctional product formulated specifically for air drilling applications including “Drill & Blast”. It helps prevent a wide range of down-hole problems including poor collaring, hole decay or sidewall instability. AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER™ also provides a degree of lubrication to the hole and will improve the lifting capacity of the air stream for cuttings transportation. AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER™ has a unique formulation which enables it to penetrate deep into the surrounding strata where it will bond friable, fragmented materials, significantly reducing the need for excess conditioning, expensive redrills or casing.

  • 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™

    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 PAC L™

    AMC PAC L™ is a premium grade low-molecular weight polyanionic cellulose polymer, which is an extremely effective filtrate reducer in fresh or salty water.

  • AMC PAC LV™

    AMC PAC LV™ is a low-molecular weight polyanionic cellulose polymer, which is an extremely effective filtrate reducer in fresh or salty water and meets or exceeds API specifications for low viscosity PAC.

  • AMC RESI DRILL™

    AMC RESI DRILL™ is a product designed to give any drilling fluid non invasive properties. It reduces dynamic filtration loss, stabilises wellbores and protects reservoirs from damage. The product is formulated to reduce fluid loss and stabilise shale by preventing filtrate invasion into permeable structures. Filter cake and differential sticking are therefore minimised and weak formations are stabilised. The product also has a high degree of environmental acceptability.
