Products to Assist Mining
Guar is used as a
fracturing fluid, and also as an additive to improve the
rheologic qualities and efficiencies of drilling fluid.
Industrial grade guar is primarily used in oil well fracturing,
oil well stimulation, mud drilling, industrial applications and
preparations as a stabilizer, thickener, and suspending agent.
- Guar hydrates rapidly,
enhances viscosity, and regulates the flow of drilling mud.
- Guar products are also
used in groundwater extraction well development.
- Guar products enable
drilling fluids to remove drill waste from deep holes.
Additionally, guar reduces
friction in these holes, which minimizes power requirements and
thus saves energy. Not only do guar products reduce water
losses, but they also increase the production rate of oil and
