POTASSIUM CHLORIDE (KCl) is a high-purity, dry crystalline inorganic salt used to form clear brine used in workover and completion operations.
PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL PROPERTIES
POTASSIUM CHLORIDE is used as a source of potassium ions. These ions, being non-hydrated and of the right size, compete strongly for the interlayer sites of swelling clay minerals such as montmorillonite and illite, in the mixed salt mud.
- The concentration of potassium depends on the level of magnesium and on the estimated bottom hole temperature.
- The normal concentration would be 10.5 - 40.0ppb or higher.
POTASSIUM CHLORIDE is available in 25 kg and 50 kg plastic waterproof sacks, palletized as 40 sacks of 25 kg and 20 sacks of 50 kg per pallet. It is also available in 1 mt Big Bags.
