Fast Hydration Guar Gum Powder

Fast Hydration Guar Gum Powder1

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.

In oil well drilling guar gum used as a surfactant, fracturing fluid and synthetic polymer for all requirements of water based and brine based oil well drills. It attains high viscosity in 3 to 5 minutes of time.

Industrial grade Guar gum powder are use in oil well fracturing, oil well stimulation, mud drilling and industrial applications and preparations as a stabilizer, thickener and suspending agent.

It is a natural, fast hydrating dispersible guar gum and is diesel slurriable.

In the oil field industry, guar gum is used as a surfactant, synthetic polymer and deformer ideally suited for all rheological requirements of water-based and brine-based drilling fluids.

Fast Hydration Guar Gum PowderHigh viscosity Guar Gum products are used as drilling aids in oil well drilling, geological drilling and water drilling.

These products are used as viscosifiers to maintain drilling mud viscosities that enable drilling fluids to remove drill waste from deep holes.

Guar gum products also reduce friction in the holes, and so minimising power requirements. Some Guar Gum products act to minimise water loss should occur in broken geological formations.

Sesbania Gum Powder and its Uses

sesbaniaNowadays a wide range of gum powders are used for a variety of purposes. These gum powders also comprise of the sesbania gum powder. Sesbania gum is mainly extracted from the seeds of sesbania. The sesbania seeds are also known as sesbania aculeate. They grow on the small sesbania tree which is basically a native of China, Asia and Africa. Sesbania is an annual plant that can grow normally up to two meters high. It has tough, fibrous and short stems, long leaves and yellow flowers with purple spots. The sesbania shrub produces pods that have light brown beans.

Sesbania gum powder is easily soluble in hot as well as cold water. It is a polymer that is also categorized as galactomannan polysaccharide. The sesbania gum powder is generally a white or cream colored, loose milky powder. Although it dissolves in water, it is not soluble in alcohol, ketones, ethers and other organic solvents. When sesbania gum powder is mixed in cold water at room temperature, it forms a highly viscous water soluble solution that has a pH value of 6 to 11. The viscosity of this sesbania gum powder is usually 5 to 10 times more compared to the natural gum plant, sodium alginate, starch.

Furthermore, the constituents and specifications of sesbania gum powder are as follows. It has a minimum viscosity of 2000 to 2500 cps. And when the viscometer is used at a temperature of 25 degrees and speed of 20 rpm, it has a maximum viscosity of 3000 to 3500 cps. Further sesbania gum powder has a moisture content  of maximum 12 percent, passing 90 percent, proteins 5 percent, fat 1 percent, A.L.R. 3 percent, Ash 1 percent, pH between 5.5 to 7.0,  carbohydrates minimum 80 percent, arsenic maximum 3 ppm, lead maximum 2 ppm, and heavy metals maximum 20 ppm.

Besides this, it has been found after performing microbiological tests, that the sesbania gum powder contains a total plate count per grams of maximum 5000, yeast and mold per gram of maximum 200, salmonella per 25 grams is not present, and also, E. colli and Colliforn is not available.

Uses of Sesbania Gum Powder

Sesbania gum powder has several domestic, commercial and industrial applications. It is widely utilized as a sizing agent and dye thickener in the textile industry. Besides this sesbania gum powder is also used for making incense. Actually the most important usage of these sesbania seeds is in oil industry.  This is due to the fact that it is highly useful as a blocking agent, water resistance and reduction agent; as well as a tackifier for producing fluid cracking that helps to increase the rate of oil production.

Another major application of sesbania gum powder is as a flocculant in water and for treatment of waste water. Moreover, it is also available at a lower price than guar gum powder and can acquire a viscosity between 1500 cps to 3500 cps. Therefore sesbania gum powder is considered as the best substitute for guar gum powder.
