Water Well and 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 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.

BENTONITE PLUG™
3/8” Bentonite Chips
Natural sodium bentonite chips
for use in:
• Sealing casings, plugging flow holes
• Monitoring well isolation aquifers
• Well decommissioning
• Grounding rods
• Geothermal wells

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

TDS    SDS

BENTONITE GROUT™
A specially formulated sodium bentonite grout used for:
• Drilled hole abandonment
• Water well grout
• Sealing monitoring well casings
• Geothermal well 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

TDS    SDS

PEL-PLUG TR30™ (TR60 & TR90)
Time-Release Coated Bentonite Pellets
• High swelling bentonite with a time-release, biodegradable, non-stick coating
• 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
• 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

TDS    SDS

SUPER MUD™
Liquid Polymer
• 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, cost efficient, and can be broken down
• Can also be mixed with foam during air drilling operations

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

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

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

TDS    SDS

SUPRA FOAM™
Drilling Foam – 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
• Adding body to the air flow which allows for deeper drilling with limited air supply
• Mixes well with polymer

TDS    SDS

WETTING AGENT
Detergent solution additive
• Keep bits and rods clean and improves fluid loss control
• Prevents swelling in clays and lubricates as well
