FLO‐PLEX

Drilling Fluids

Filtration-control additive for DRILPLEX drilling fluid system   FLO‐PLEX is a polysaccharide derivative used to control filtration in the DRILPLEX MMO drilling fluid system. Unlike conventional anionic fluid‐loss‐control agents, FLO‐PLEX additive will not destroy the low‐end rheology of DRILPLEX. FLO‐PLEX is effective in seawater fluids, but all hardness should be treated out before the product […]
