Horizontal and Directional Drilling Products

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.

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
• Carries cuttings in mud with lower soil conten
• High Yield gel diminishes fluid loss conditions
• Reduces seeping into permeable formations
• Helps eliminate loss circulations
