GUAR POWDERS & SLURRIES

Shrieve offers a range of natural polymers, such as guar and derivatized guars, that are utilized to viscosify fresh water and light brines to improve proppant transport properties. They are readily crosslinked to further increase the viscosity and enhance proppant carrying capabilities while improving fluid loss.

Guar II

A high quality, medium grade, self-hydrating guar gum that provides rapid viscosity development for fracturing fluid applications. It is highly dispersible, will not lump, and hydrates rapidly when added to fresh water, NaCl water, or KCl water. Shrieve Guar II can be added rapidly to base fluids to create slurry formulations. Shrieve Guar II does not contain internal buffers or enzyme breakers.

Guar II-F

A high quality, medium grade, self-hydrating guar gum that provides rapid viscosity development for fracturing fluid applications. It contains less than 1% of a flow aid, non-crystalline silica, to assist with the free flowing properties of the dry powder. Shrieve Guar II-F is highly dispersible, will not lump, and hydrates rapidly when added to fresh water, NaCl water, or KCl water. Shrieve Guar II-F does not contain internal buffers or enzyme breakers.

GUAR II SLURRY

A self-hydrating guar slurry that provides rapid viscosity development for fracturing fluid applications. The slurry concentration contains 4 lbs/gallon (0.48 kg/L) of 40-45 cp fast hydrating guar. The base fluid for the slurry is a low toxicity, non-detectable BTEX mineral oil that provides a stable slurry that is easy to handle for both continuous and batch mixing operations. Shrieve Guar II Slurry is highly dispersible, will not lump, and hydrates rapidly when added to fresh water, NaCl water, or KCl water. Shrieve Guar II Slurry does not contain internal buffers or enzyme breakers. 

GUAR III SLURRY

A self-hydrating guar slurry that provides rapid viscosity development for fracturing fluid applications. The slurry concentration contains 4 lbs/gallon (0.48 kg/L) of 35-40 cp fast hydrating guar. The base fluid for the slurry is a low toxicity, non-detectable BTEX mineral oil that provides a stable slurry that is easy to handle for both continuous and batch mixing operations. Shrieve Guar III Slurry is highly dispersible, will not lump, and hydrates rapidly when added to fresh water, NaCl water, or KCl water. Shrieve Guar III Slurry does not contain internal buffers or enzyme breakers.

GUAR NT II SLURRY

A self-hydrating guar slurry in a clay-free suspension package that provides rapid viscosity development for fracturing fluid applications. The slurry concentration contains 4 lbs/gallon (0.48 kg/L) of 40-45 cP fast hydrating guar in a low toxicity, clean, non-detectable BTEX, non-detectable PAH, synthetic paraffin base fluid. Guar NT II Slurry is more stable in transit and has a longer shelf-life than traditional clay-based suspension slurries. It is easy to handle for both continuous and batch mixing operations, since it is highly dispersible, will not lump, and hydrates rapidly when added to fresh water, NaCl water, or KCl water. Guar NT II Slurry does not contain internal buffers or enzyme breakers.
