Primary Emulsifier Supplier and Manufacturer

PRIMARY EMULSIFIER

Primary emulsifier is designed for use in diesel oil based drilling fluid systems. Emulsifier helps stabilize emulsions, aid suspension properties, and reduce HPHT filtration. Emulsifier requires the addition of lime to produce a calcium soap emulsifier in-situ.

CHARACTERISTICS AND PROPERTY

Appearance:        Dark liquid
Flash point:     156°F
Flash point:     69°C
Specific gravity:       0.94

APPLICATIONS

Helps form stable water-in-oil emulsions
Helps lower filtration rates
Helps impart high temperature stability to oil-based fluids


ADVANTAGES

Can be added directly to the system
Resists electrolyte contamination

LIMITATIONS

1. For normal applications, add 4-12 lb/bbl (11.41-34.24 kg/m³).
2. For high temperatures (>350°F) (>177°C), add 10-25 lb/bbl (28.53-71.33 kg/m³).
3. For relaxed-filtrate systems, add 0.25-4.0 lb/bbl (0.71-11.41 kg/m³).
Note: For every pound of primary emulsifier that is added to the system, add 0.5 lb/bbl (1.4 kg/m³) of lime

TOXICITY AND HANDLING

Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

PACKING AND STORAGES

Primary emulsifier is packed in 55-gal (208-l) drums and in bulk.
