Foundation Drilling & Diaphragm Wall Construction Products
PDS produces a comprehensive line of high performance drilling fluids, specialized slurry additives and testing equipment for drilled shaft, bored pile, diaphragm wall and deep foundation construction applications.
Liquid Polymer – An environmentally safe, fast mixing drilling fluid used for building 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, is cost efficient and can be broken down. Can also be mixed with foam during air drilling operations.
Flocculent/Settling Agent – A selective mud flocculent in liquid form that aids in the settlement of solids. Quik Floc reduces the time required for settlement by rapidly agglomerating silt and other micron size particles that are suspended within the slurry and settles them to the bottom of the excavation allowing 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 that yields a minimum 200 barrels of API fluid per ton of material. It 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 and helps eliminate loss circulations.
(8 mesh) – Granulated bentonite that contains 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, to decommission abandoned bore holes and to stop loss circulation during rotary drilling.
