CI – SSA 1
Silt Suspending Agent Is an anionic, nonionic surfactant that can be used in most acid-treating solutions and fracturing fluids to suspend insoluble fines. Surfactants reduce the surface tension and/or interfacial tension between fluids, between fluid and formation, and between fluid and tubular.
Their use is common in all types of treating fluids. Surfactants aid in formation clean up through their ability to prevent emulsions, reduce surface and interfacial tension, and alter wettability.
Blend of sufactants in an aqueous alcohol solvent system that reduces surface and interfacial tension of both acid and water systems. Disperses mud particles in hydrochloric acid (HCl) treatments. Normal concentration is 1 to 30 gal/1,000 gal (0.1 to 3 volume percent).
