Foundation Drilling and Diaphragm Wall Construction

PDS produces a comprehensive line of high performance drilling fluids, specialized slurry additives, testing equipment and bentonite sealants for water well, geotechnical, geothermal, cathodic protection and environmental drilling applications.

Bentonite pellets are our specialty. PDS has developed an innovative biodegradable, non-stick, time-release coating which allows bentonite to be poured through standing water without sticking together or bridging.

Many of our products are NSF and ANSI standard 60 certified. We’ve created them with 32 years of

research, real world field experience, and endless hours of lab time.

Our bentonite mining facility in west Texas produces premium quality sodium bentonite clay. We carefully monitor every step in our product manufacturing process. From the mine to the milling, to the packing, to the loading, our goal is dependable quality and performance in the field for you. Our goal is to solve your daily drilling challenges with effective, practical products that help your team to work more efficiently.

SUPER MUD DRY™
A synthetic polymer in dry granular form
• Allows for rapid increases in viscosity
• Has the same capabilities as Super Mud liquid
• Higher viscosities improve particle removal from the bore hole
• Assists in sealing porous soils

SUPER MUD™
Liquid Polymer – An environmentally safe, fast mixing drilling fluid
• Builds viscosity in mud rotary drilling
• Excellent clay and shale inhibitor, works well in both fresh and salt water
• Allows faster drilling, reduces well development time
• Prevents bit balling, lowers fluid loss, cost efficient, can be broken down
• Can also be mixed with foam during air drilling operations

WATER TREAT™
Soda Ash – Safe, Inexpensive
• Easy to mix
• For conditioning and maintaining the pH
• Reducing the hardness of drilling fluids

TDS    SDS

QUIK FLOC™
Flocculent/Settling Agent
• Selective mud flocculent in liquid form
• Aids in the settlement of solids
• Reduces the time required for settlement by rapidly agglomerating silt and other micron size particles that are suspended within the slurry • Settles micron sized particles to the bottom of the excavation
• Allows for easy removal by cleanout bucket or airlift system
• Flocculation time will vary depending upon concentration of suspended fines

HIGH YIELD GEL
A polymer extended sodium bentonite
• Yields a minimum 200 barrels of API fluid per ton of material.
• Mixes rapidly for quick hydration and carries cuttings in mud with lower soil content
• High Yield gel diminishes fluid loss conditions
• Reduces seeping into permeable formations
• Helps eliminate loss circulations

POLYORE™
Guar Gum – A biodegradable, natural polymer
• Formulated for easy and quick dispersion
• Guar gum drilling fluid removes cuttings fast and effectively
• Ideal for drilling recovery wells, test wells and exploration borings

TDS    SDS

GRANULAR SEAL™
((8 mesh) – Granulated bentonite with no additives
• When contacted by water forms a semi-solid, gel-like mass that fills formation voids and prevents surface water from entering subsurface aquifers.
• Used to seal well casings
• decommission abandoned bore holes
• stop loss circulation during rotary drilling
