Freeze Protection BIG-FOOT® Polymer Slurry

Construction drilling using slurry and cold weather don’t mix that well.  In the drilling industry when using slurry a number of things can go wrong when the temperature drops below 32°F.  The polymer slurry will freeze.  Taking a few simple precautions easily prevents damage and equipment failure due to expanding from freezing.

BIG-FOOT® Polymer Slurry Maintenance and Reuse During Drilling

BIG-FOOT polymer slurry works at specific optimal concentrations, similar to bentonite slurry.  Without the proper polymer potency in the slurry, the slurry will not perform correctly by forming a membrane to help control slurry loss and check the slurry from entering the sidewalls of the surrounding formation.  The recommended dosage of BIG-FOOT polymer and FORTIFY within the slurry is also needed to apply the required positive differential pressure against the sidewalls of the excavation.
