Walnut Shells

Walnut Shell (F/M/C)

Walnut Shells OVERVIEW

The hard, fibrous, chemically inert, nontoxic, and biodegradable material known as walnut shell is utilized as a Loss Circulation Material in drilling applications. It is produced by grinding specialized walnut to specific sizes and can be utilized in fluid systems of various densities. In some cases, Walnut Shell (F/M/C) is utilized as a nut lubricant to enhance lubricity and decrease torque and drag..

Enhance your oil extraction processes with our specialty chemicals for oil extraction. From enhanced recovery techniques to efficient production, our solutions are designed to elevate your overall extraction performance.

Application of Walnut Shells

The use of WALNUT Shell as a material for controlling lost circulation in drilling fluids is a common practice in the oil and gas industry. It is highly effective in mitigating the loss of drilling fluids during the drilling process, which can result in significant cost savings. This material can be used alone in re-circulated fluids, or in combination with other materials such as fibrous and flake materials in pill form, to provide an even greater level of effectiveness in preventing lost circulation.

In addition to its loss circulation control properties, WALNUT Shell is also utilized as a lubricant in drilling operations to increase lubricity and reduce torque and drag. This is achieved by applying the shell material to the threads of drill pipe and other tools used in drilling operations. The lubricating properties of WALNUT Shell help to reduce friction and heat buildup during drilling, thereby increasing the efficiency and safety of drilling operations.

Overall, WALNUT Shell is a versatile material that has a wide range of applications in the drilling industry. Its unique combination of properties, including its hardness, fibrous nature, chemical inertness, non-toxicity, and biodegradability, make it an attractive choice for use in drilling operations.
