ALCOMER 110 RD
Alcomer 110 RD is readily dispersible acrylamide-based copolymer.
6.0 (1% solution)
>91% @ (3.0 kg/m3)
Alcomer 110 RD has been developed to give enhanced performance in conventional clear
water or low solids drilling fluids while maintaining functionality in K+, polymer and high salt
systems. With improved dispersibility over conventional PHPA powders, Alcomer 110 RD
provides all the benefits normally associated with PHPA type additives. Alcomer 110 RD will
provide viscosity, shale stabilization, flocculation and lubrication.
As a viscosifier, Alcomer 110 RD is very efficient and cost effective in low solids, low
salinity-drilling fluids. Normal dosage rates are between 0.75-3.0 kg/m3.
Alcomer 110 RD can be used alone or in conjunction with clay stabilizers such as K+ to inhibit
shale hydration. Sufficient polymer must be maintained in the system to provide a protective
coating on the well bore and drill cuttings. Normal addition rates are 0.6-3.0 kg/m3.
MIXING AND HANDLING
Alcomer 110 RD is added either at the flow line to promote solids settling in the sump or at a
point prior to mechanical separation equipment. A 0.5% stock solution is most commonly
prepared using (1) one viscosity cup of polymer per 50 gallons of fresh water. Alcomer 110
RD must be mixed slowly to prevent "humping" and the subsequent loss of polymer at the
shaker screen. Alcomer 110 RD becomes very slippery when it come
