Slickwater fracture friction reducer(common and anti-freezing type)

Friction reducer is the main chemical used in shale gas slick fracture. During shale gas hydraulic fracture, friction reducer is added while pumping the fresh water into reservoir. 

Our friction reducer is a modified hydrolyzed polyacrylamide emulsion, it’s a combination of linear elastic molecules & nano-microspheres, which has excellent thermostability and salinity stability, designed for use in water-based fracturing fluids & brines.


  ● Perfect friction reducing rate(50-70%)

  ● Viscosified obviously (multi-branched structure)

  ● Reduce fluid loss

  ● Low absorption to formation(anionic)

  ● Low cost

2)Anti-freezing EPAM

RD180 is an anionic friction reducer designed for use in water-based fracturing fulids and low temperature.RD180 is a polyacrylamide polymer which functions by thickening the fluid which is to be pumped down the well. Also it can be used as pre-flushing fluid.The flow of low viscosity fluids pumped at high rates can be described as “turbulent flow”.

The individual molecules in this type of flow move randomly within the column of the fuild,bouncing against the pipe walls and one another,and bouncing back against the flow of the fluid. Friction pressure increases because energy is absorbed when fluid molecules are involved in a collision,and this results in more horse power and pumping pressure required to achieve higher rates. By increasing the viscosity(the resisitance of two molecules to slide past one another)of the fluid,the velocity of the individual molecules with respect to one anoter is decreased,which allows the molecules to move in the same direction. The flow pattern achieved by using RD180 is referred to as "laminar flow",and is much more efficient than turbulent flow.This results in a reduction in friction,and a decrease in the pimping pressure required to pump the fluid at higher rates.

RD180 has good anti-freezing performance,keeps free flowing and suitable for temperature of -30℃.
