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.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
