MEX-LUBE

DESCRIPTION

MEX-LUBE is a water dispersible type of lubricant designed to reduce frictional forces and torque in all types of water-based mud systems. MEX-LUBE provides unique wetting solutions thus reducing the probability of bit/ BHA balling. It does not contain hydrocarbons, and it is compatible with all types of water-based mud systems. 

MAIN PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

Appearance                              slightly viscous light-yellow fluid

рН                                         8,0 - 9,0

Density at 20OC                        about 1 g/cm3

Ignition temperature                  > 65OC

APPLICATION:

MEX-LUBE is easily dispersed in water, and it is easy to mix in all types of drilling fluid systems. With high concentration of solids in the mud, or with high rheological parameters (yield point and gel strength), the mud system may produce some insignificant foaming. In this case it is recommended to use MEX-DEFOAM additive to reduce foam generation.

The recommended concentrations of MEX-LUBE additive for reaching an appropriate effect is from 10 to 30 kg/m3. The concentration of the additive in muds with density above 1450 kg/m3 may be higher. 

      ADVANTAGES:

      LIMITATIONS:

  • High-efficient multi-purpose product.
  • The particles of the additive may stick together in larger clumps in mud systems containing large amounts of calcium or magnesium salts (above 600 mg/l), or in muds with high pH.
  • It reduces friction and torque parameters.
  • It does not affect the rheology of the mud system.
  • It contains the unique wetting components preventing bit/ BHA balling.
  • It may be used for drilling conditions with any BH temperatures.
  • It does not form a film on the solution surface with concentrations of 4% and below.
  • It may generate an insignificant foaming in newly mixed sea-water-based mud systems.

 

PACKAGING AND HANDLING

MEX-LUBE is supplied in 208 l plastic or steel drums. Store in cool, dry area. Use conventional PPE when handling the product (safety goggles, gloves and dust mask. Handle as recommended in the MSDS.
