Bore-Gel Boring Fluid System
BORE-GEL fluid system is a single sack, boring fluid system specially formulated for use in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) applications. BORE-GEL system is a proprietary blended product using high-quality Wyoming sodium bentonite. When BORE-GEL system is mixed with fresh water, it develops an easy-to-pump slurry with desirable fluid properties for HDD.
Drilling fluids should have transport abilities, suspension capabilities and gelatin properties. Viscosifiers are the products that give a drilling fluid these basic rheological properties. These properties may be enhanced with other additives to comprise an engineered fluid solution for each unique drilling situation.
