MEGASLIDE® COARSE GLASS BEADS

Function

1. Mechanical lubricant as a means to INCREASE RATE OF PENETRATION of a drill string within a deviated well bore.

2. As an aid to SLIDE DRILLING, BATCH DRILLING & RUNNING CASING OR A LINER.

3. As a mechanical lubricant when DRILLING EXTENDED REACH WELLS.

4. Superior TORQUE & DRAG REDUCTION.

General Description

MEGASLIDE® 14-20 mesh

Product Benefits

MegaSlide® coarse glass beads have the highest values for compressive strength and hardness available to the oilfield. The compressive strength of MegaSlide® 14-20 mesh or a nominal 1.0 mm) is 134 lbf (600 N) and 71.5 Rc hardness. API pipe tables, Class E and N-80 have a tensile strength of about 100,000 psi. This is equivalent to 95-98 RB. However some furnace heats may be more than 23 RC. S135 has a tensile strength of 147,000 psi and 35-39 RC. Stabilizers and tool joints are similar to 4140 steel with hardness about 1/2 that of MegaSlide® beads or 30-34 RC.

Excellent results have been found, due to the larger exposed surface area of the coarse bead. It enables itself to protrude further out of the wall cake which gives a greater ball-bearing affect to the outer casing wall in open hole.

Product Description

  • Color: Colorless, clear and free of carbon residues
  • Specific Gravity: 2.45 – 2.50 g/cm3
  • Hardness: C70.5
  • Crush Resistance: ±60,000 pounds
