Guar is also known as Cluster Bean (cyamopsis Tetragonoloba) a drought hardly leguminous crop. Guar is being grown for seed, green fodder, vegetable and green manuring. It is an annual plant about 4 feet high, vertically stacked, large leaves and clusters of pods. The pods are used as a green vegetable or as a cattle feed besides the industrial extraction of Guar gum.
Guar Gum is used as:
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.
|Fast Hydrating Slurriable Guar|
|The natural fast hydrating and slurriable guar is a non ionic guar, polymeric viscosifier that is slurrible up to 50 percent of solids in systems such as diesel fuel. In aqueous systems, its main use is in the stimulation of oil and gas wells as a fracturing fluid. This yields excellent pump ability, good hydration, good thermal stability and excellent shell life. It can be typically cross linked with borates and once cross linked it exhibits excellent carrying capacity to support sand or other proppants to be placed in the created fracture. The viscosity of hydrating slurriable guar can be reduced or broken by using enzymes, oxidizers or acids such as HCL.|
