Xanthan RMI Supply Polyanionic Cellulose Gilsonite Bentonite Soda Ash Mica Industrial Supplier

















Xanthan- Powder and Liquid


Description  RMI-LQ. Xanthan has been proven to be extremely effective in providing viscosity to thicken drilling mud.  When circulation stops the solids still remain suspended in the drilling fluid.  The demand for good control of the drilled solids has led to its expanded use in horizontal drilling.

We ship many truckloads per month in this dry powder program serving most commonly Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Kansas, and Colorado with delviery on our trucks.

Also some info on our suspension for the Liquid Xanthan

 Our xanthan slurry is blended to order and exact specifications. We start out with a xanthan powder that has a 3 rpm reading greater than 20, many use an API spec xanthan that has a 3 rpm reading of a 13. Beyond that, our carrier greatly differs from competitors. Most use a mineral oil and rheology clay mix. That mixture produces minimal viscosity and after a short time allows the xanthan to settle out. Our carrier fluid consists of several components; polyacrylamide, mineral oil, base oils, polymer and a few others. This formula paired with the high viscosity xanthan allows for instant dispersion and incredible viscosity. The product will stay in suspension for over a year without settling.
