NewArmor™ corrosion inhibitor is a cationic amine that forms a protective film on metals. The product also contains an oxygen scavenger, which removes the dissolved oxygen from the fluid, eliminating one of the major causes of downhole corrosion.
The NewArmor film protects metal surfaces from corrosive liquids and gases while its scavenger removes dissolved oxygen, effectively minimizing the costs of corrosioninduced damage to downhole components.
NewArmor corrosion inhibitor protects tubular goods in any water-based drilling, completion or packer fluid. Because of its cationic nature, the product may cause some flocculation of clay-based drilling fluids. Any undesired flocculation may be corrected with additions of a deflocculant, such as lignosulfonates.
Normal concentrations are 5-15 gal/100 bbl. Higher mud weights or temperatures typically require a treatment level toward the higher end of the range. Pilot testing is recommended for heavy-weight drilling fluid or those containing high concentrations of low-gravity solids.
