KimaCell® CMC LV sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is a non-toxic, odorless, tasteless white or slightly yellow Powder, with the functions of thickening, emulsification, water retention, colloid protection and suspension, is often used as a fluid loss reducer, emulsifier and flocculant in drilling fluids. According to the viscosity and anti-filtration performance of the actual drilling fluid, CMC -The mass of Na in the drilling fluid is in the range of 0.5% to 2%.

Application of CMC LV

KimaCell® CMC LV sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is In drilling and oil drilling engineering, good mud must be configured to ensure the normal operation of the drilling. A good mud must have appropriate specific gravity, viscosity, thixotropy, water loss and other values. These values have their own requirements depending on the region, well depth, mud type and other conditions. Using CMC in the mud can adjust these physical parameters, such as reducing loss. Water volume, adjust viscosity, increase thixotropy, etc. When in use, dissolve CMC in water to make a solution and add it to the mud. CMC can also be added to the mud together with other chemical agents. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose CMC for oil drilling has the following characteristics: less dosage, high pulping rate; good salt resistance, strong antibacterial properties, convenient use; good filtration loss reduction and viscosity increasing effects; rheological control, strong suspension ability; The product is green and environmentally friendly, non-toxic, harmless and odorless; the product has good fluidity and convenient construction.
