Drilling Bentonite is the Bentonite formed to be used in drilling mud or fluid. It is one of the major uses of the bentonites. Swell Chem is producing high grade Bentonite for drilling mud applications. The company and its drilling grade bentonite products are the sign of quality and integrity.
Drilling is one of the major industries besides foundry, feed, and pharmaceutical which use Bentonite clay. The products are mined and produced using cutting-edge equipments and technology. Quality testing of all the products is done to ensure best performance during the applications.
The Bentonite is processed to be used as drilling mud due to its binding and purifying properties. Bentonite is used in the drilling fluids everywhere in the world. It gives a lubricating and cooling effect to the tools and prevents corrosion.
It also adds value by preventing penetration of gas and fluid. Its ability of thixotropic reaction under conditions of mechanical stress is remarkable. The viscosity increases in the latent conditions. Due to these properties the Bentonite is used as drilling mud or fluid, and hence also known as drilling bentonite.
