Hole Cleaning/ Barite Sag


Barite sag occurs when weighting material (barite, calcium carbonate, etc.) separates from the liquid phase in mud drilling and settles. This causes variations in mud weight when circulating, resulting in lost circulation.

Barite sag and Calcium Carbonate also impacts hole cleaning as it hinders the ability of drilling fluids to transport and suspend drilled cuttings.


PROCOR Chemicals offer a wide range of products to counteract barite sag or calcium carbonate, enabling efficient hole cleaning.

All products work in water, oil or synthetic based drilling fluids, except HP PRO FALT:
