RMI BEADS

LUBRICATING BEADS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

RMI -BEADS are tiny graphite spheres, ranging in size from approximately 300 microns to approximately 50 microns. RMI  BEADS are highly effective lubricity agents and are recommended in applications, which typically call for the use of glass or plastic beads. When added to a drilling mud, the rounded shape of RMI BEADS with silicone promotes a “ball bearing” effect, which greatly reduces torque and drag on the drill string. Additionally, RMI -BEADS slowly wear down to a slippery, oily film. This enhances lubrication and leaves no sharp, broken pieces, which actually increase torque and drag.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

RMI BEADS is effective in reducing fluid loss. As the tiny spheres wear down, they selectively plug pores in the surrounding formation. Using RMI BEADS for fluid loss control will not interfere with later production from the well.

 

APPLICATION

Normal usage for fluid loss is 2-6 ppb and to reduce torque and drag is 1-3 ppb for straight hole and 2-6 ppb during horizontal drilling. 9-15 bags can be mixed in the mud hopper and added as a slug for severe conditions.

 

RECOMMENDED TREATMENT

Laboratory testing is recommended to determine the correct dosage based on well conditions.
