Fast Hydration Guar Gum powder is also knows as quick hydration guar gum powder, rapid hydration guar gum powder, It is also knows as diesel slurry guar gum.[pullquote_left] Fast Hydrating Guar Gum FHG Guar [/pullquote_left]
The natural fast hydrating, dispersible and diesel slurriable guar gum is ideally suitable for all rheological requirements of oil well drilling, continuous fracturing and diesel slurry. It is widely used in oil well drilling due to its multi-function such as fluid and water loss control, viscosity control, lubrication. It is used for cooling of drill bits, mud drilling and cementing slurries, where immediate high viscosity and quick hydration is required.The main use of guar gum is in top hole oil well drilling. Industrial grade guar gum powder is suitable for use in oil well fracturing, oil well stimulation, mud drilling and serves as a stabilizer, thickener and suspending agent.
Regular guar gum gives viscosity after 2hors and fast hydration gaur gum powder gives viscosity in few minutes.
FHg Guar is used to increase the Oil and gas production. Using Guar Gum increase the oil recovery substantially.
FH Guar used as a surfactant, synthetic polymer and defoamer which ideal for all rheological requirements of water-based and brine-based drilling fluids.[divider]
Benefits of using Guar Gum:[checklist]
- High viscosities
- Hydrates quickly in cold water
- Delivers proppant more effectively
- Stable at high pressures, heat and pH levels
- Friction reducing properties
- Environmentally friendly
- 8 times more thickening power than starch
- Safe to handle
What is Guar Gum ?
Guar Gum is a legume crop, which is also known as a cluster plant. It thrives in drought / monsoon cycles present mainly in India and Pakistan. Guar gum is essentially the ground endosperm (seed) of the Guar Bean, the seed is de-husked, milled and screened to obtain the Guar Powder. The powder is then used in the textile industry, bakery industry, pharmaceutical industry, oil drilling and hydraulic fracturing industries.
The demand for Guar Gum has increassed due to the global boom in Shale Gas and Oil exploration, which uses a process called hydraulic fracturing. This powder is a source of natural hydrocolloid, which is soluble in cold water achieving thick solutions at low concentrations.[divider]
What is the difference between Guar Gum and FHG ?
The main difference between Guar Gum and FHG is the speed in which desired viscosity levels are achieved. What Guar Gum can achieve in a few hours, FHG achieves in a few minutes. In an industry where every hur of exploration is costing thousands, speed and delivery is extremely important hence why FHGuar is the preferred gelling agent in fracturing fluid.[divider]
