Xanthan Gum

Vis-HG

Oil and Gas Field, Mining and Industrial Applications

Xanthan Gum is a high molecular weight anionic polysaccharide polymer produced by the fermentation of starch by Xanthomonas Campestris. It has high stability, resistance to acid and alkali, high salt environment, high temperature and low temperature freezing, anti-biodegradation, and strong anti-pollution ability. Xanthan Gum is widely used in food, personal care products, pharmaceuticals acting as thickener, suspension agent, emulsifier and stabilizer and etc.

 

CAS No.: 11138-66-2

Formula: (C3H49O29)n  

Function: Emulsifier, Foaming Agent, Stabilizer, Thickener                 

Package: 25 kg bag, 50 lb bag or customization.

We understand the complexity of oilfield operation, thus we offer different grades of Xanthan Gum fitting into most industrial standards including but not limited to the following list.

Applications

Functions

Oil and Gas Field

Acts as a rheology modifier in water-based drilling fluids, workover fluids or completion fluids, to produce low shear rate viscosity and enhance suspension capacity.

Its aqueous solution shows higher viscosity and excellent rheology at a low concentration.

It maintains a high viscosity in a relatively stationary drilling area, preventing the collapse of the well-wall.

Mining Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

Functions to boost drilling fluid viscosity without substantially increasing fluid density.

Reduces the total amount of bentonite required to achieve similar rheological fluid properties.

Mining

Prevent ore deposition during production and increase foam stability.

Hydroxyethyl cellulose, Vis-HE, Industrial Grade

Ethylcellulose (HEC) is a white or light yellow, odorless, non-toxic fibrous or powdery solid, prepared by etherification of basic cellulose and ethylene oxide (or chloroethanol) Ionic soluble cellulose ethers.

Cellulose Gum, Vis-CT, Industrial Grade

Cellulose Gum (Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose) is a high purity, fine cellulose ether. It is widely used in food products and performs as multifunctional additive such as thickener, stabilizer, blinder, water retention agent and film formation agent.
