Water Based Mud

The KCL Polymer Mud has the potassium ion (K+) in the system so as to stabilize shale formation. I personally love the KCL system because of its effectiveness to prevent clay swelling problems. It is widely used in several parts of the world; however, some countries don’t allow to use it because it has toxicity [...]

Low pH Polymer Water Base Mud (Low pH/PHPA mud) is one of famous water based mud systems because there are partially-hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (PHPA) particles which function as protective colloid in the drilling mud. As you know that the water phase will act will shale formation causing wellbore problems as wellbore collapse, clay swelling, cutting build [...]
