JOF CLAY ACT / JOF-SHALE STABILIZER
JOF 'CLAY ACT'/ JOF-SHALE STABILIZER is a high molecular weight poly acrylamide produced by an advanced inverse emulsion polymerization process. The product is in the form of a highly concentrated liquid emulsion which is self-reverting and dissolves rapidly in mud systems without the problem of micro-encapsulation or ‘fish eyes’.With its extremely high molecular weight and unique absorption properties acts as an highly effective encapsulating agent. This results in the inhibition of the dispersion of the drill cuttings in sensitive shale formations.JOF ‘CLAY ACT’ is added through the mud hopper at a rate of 15-20 minutes per drum or 10 of 55 US gallon pails. Initial treatment of 0.5 to 0.75 ppb is recommended and a level of 0.5 ppb should be maintained in the mud filtrate.
