Water Well & Environmental 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 PLUG™
3/8” Bentonite Chips – Natural sodium bentonite chips for use in sealing casings, plugging flow holes and monitoring well isolation aquifers, well decommissioning, grounding rods and geothermal wells.
TDS    SDS

GRANULAR SEAL™
(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.

BENTONITE GROUT™
A specially formulated sodium bentonite grout which can be used for drilled hole abandonment, water well grout, sealing monitoring well casing or as a geothermal grout.

PEL-PLUG™ Bentonite Pellets
High swelling, sodium bentonite compressed into pellet form. Available in 1/4” , 3/8” and 1/2” sizes. Forms a high density seal between the sand pack and grout section of monitoring wells. Can be tremmied into place or placed through a hollow stem auger.

PEL-PLUG TR30™ (TR60 & TR90)
Time-Release Coated Bentonite Pellets – High swelling bentonite with a time-release, biodegradable, non-stick coating. The coating allows the pellets to be poured through standing water without sticking together for up to 30 minutes allowing for deeper settings. Available in 1/4” , 3/8” and 1/2” sizes. Can be tremmied into place or placed through a hollow stem auger. TR60 allows up to 60 minutes and the TR90 up to 90 minutes.

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.

SUPER MUD™
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.
TDS    SDS

SUPER MUD DRY™
A synthetic polymer in dry granular form that allows for rapid increases in viscosity and has the same capabilities as Super Mud liquid. The higher viscosities improve particle removal from the bore hole and assists in sealing porous soils.
TDS    SDS

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

WATER TREAT™
Soda Ash – A safe, inexpensive, easy to mix product for conditioning and maintaining the pH and reducing the hardness of drilling fluids.
TDS    SDS

SUPRA FOAM™
Drilling Foam – A highly concentrated air drilling foam for air drilling or percussion operations. Improves penetration rate and lifts cuttings away from the bit face and up the bore hole while adding body to the air flow which allows for deeper drilling with limited air supply. Mixes well with polymer.
TDS    SDS

WETTING AGENT
A detergent solution which is used as an additive to keep bits and rods clean and improve fluid loss control. Prevents swelling in clays and lubricates as well.
