CT DRILDET is a   special aqueous blend of surfactants equally effective regardless of makeup   water, whether it is fresh or saturated salt water. It also has a lubricating   effect. It is designed to reduce the surface tension of the water-based mud   system


CT DRILDET may be   used in any area where it is desirable to reduce the foaming tendencies of   water base muds. It is compatible with fresh water mud, sea water mud and   brine system mud. It is also effective in KCL and sea water muds


Promotes solids   settling and reduces pump pressure.

Improved sampling   through cleaner samples and more distinct cuttings.

Increased penetration   rates.

Reduced hole friction   and torque.

Reduced bit balling,   mud rings and cake build-up on drill strings.

Reduced wear on   surface mud system expendables and

Increased bit life.


Physical Appearance: Colorless to Blue Green   Liquid

Specific Gravity: 1.01 to 1.03

pH: 8 - 10

Freezing Point: 0°C

Solubility in Water: 100% Soluble


Normal Dosage ranges   from 0.1 to 0.2 lb/bbl (0.3 to 0.6 kg/m3) under most conditions. In severe   shale areas, 4 to 6 lb/bbl (11.4 to 17 kg/m3) dosage is recommended to   minimize bit and BHA balling. CT-DRILDET is effective in all   water-base systems including freshwater, brackish water, seawater and   saturated saltwater fluids


CT-DRILDET is   packaged in 5‐gal (18.9‐L) cans and 55‐gal (208‐L) drums. Store in   dry, well‐ventilated area. Keep   container closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flames

CT-DRILDET is equivalent to CONDET and DD
