Product Description

ConveCT™ pH buffer is an amine-based product aimed at preserving naturally derived polymers from heat-induced degradation in situations where borehole temperatures exceed their normal operating range. It was developed for use in Newpark’s proprietary ResurreCT™ coiled tubing system. The product has the added benefit of alkalinity control.

Benefits Benefits

  • Saves cost on naturally derived polymer additions by extending life of existing polymers in fluids
  • Contains an inherent alkalinity feature that is more stable and less hazardous than other pH sources (such as caustic soda)
  • Not affected by hardness from divalent cation sources
  • Prevents against polymeric degradation sources such as oxidation and hydrolysis
  • Has the ability to extend temperature limitation by up to 30°F (17°C)

Application Application

  • Controls alkalinity in high-hardness brines containing divalent cations such as calcium or magnesium
  • Safe replacement for hazardous alkalinity sources such as caustic soda
  • Extends polymer life by preventing degradation via hydrolysis and oxidation.

Treatment Recommendation Treatment Recommendation

To prevent polymeric degradation, ConveCT pH buffer should be added to the fluid system in concentrations of 1.75-3.5 lb/bbl. Routine additions should be made to maintain a system pH of 9.0-10.0.
