ClayPro™ 50 Clay Stabilizer
Clay Resilience on Demand, Unlocking Temporal Solutions for Formation Stability
Temporary Meets Transformative
for Sustained Formation Integrity
Unlike typical temporary inhibitors with 1 to 3 active anchoring groups, ClayPro™ 50 stands out with its advanced formulation. ClayPro™ 50 goes beyond traditional inhibitors by incorporating inorganic salts, particularly mono-to-tetravalent cations, carefully selected for their optimal ionic diameter and hydration sphere. This strategic composition enhances the effectiveness of ClayPro™ 50 when maintained within the active concentration window. By strategically influencing rock wettability through oil adsorption, it leverages the surface charge of clay minerals. This innovative stabilizer ensures controlled and reliable performance.
Moreover, when paired with a carrier fluid containing a Permanent stabilizer, ClayPro™ 50 prevents potential damage to the formation caused by the carrier fluid itself.

ClayPro™ 50 as an
Alternative to KCl
The Linear Swelling Meter - LSM test was performed to evaluate the ClayPro™ 50 as an alternative to KCl. The test was performed with clay cutting samples to study the reactivity of the clays. This procedure measures the swelling tendency of clay in a water-based brine fluid that contains clay inhibitors KCl and ClayPro™ 50.
