Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agents are acid soluble. They effectively bridge and seal formations with low to moderate porosity and permeability, and they enhance filter cake characteristics. Calcium carbonate bridging agents are used as the primary bridging agents in TETRA fluid loss control pills to rapidly establish an effective filter cake across permeable intervals during drilling operations.
 

PRODUCT INFORMATION

PayZoneCarb Prime
A fine grind, high purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, TETRACarb Prime has a particle size distribution ranging from 2 to 150 microns and a D50 value of 12 microns. TETRACarb Prime is sized to flow through prepacked screens without bridging and to be easily removed by acidizing.

PayZoneCarb Ultra
An ultra fine grind, high purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3)bridging agent, TETRACarb Ultra exhibits a narrow particle size distribution ranging from 1.5 to 20 microns and a D50 value of four microns. TETRACarb Ultra is sized to flow through prepacked screens without bridging and to be easily removed by acidizing. It is primarily used in prepack fluids as a bridging and sealing agent to maintain filter cake integrity across production intervals, while sand control tools, such as prepacked screens, are being used.

 

 


TETRACarb Fine
A select grind, high purity calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, TETRACarb Fine has a particle size distribution ranging from 10 to 500 microns and a D50 value of 55 microns.

TETRACarb Medium
An intermediate range, select grind calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, TETRACarb Medium has a particle size distribution ranging from 85 to 1200 microns and a D50 value of 370 microns.

TETRACarb Coarse
A select grind, sized calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, TETRACarb Coarse has a particle size distribution ranging from 1000 to 3500 microns and a D50 value of 1800 microns.

TETRACarb Flake
A sized calcium carbonate (CaCO3) bridging agent, TETRACarb Flake has the physical dimensions of a flat, sheet like material, rather than a conventional spherically shaped calcium carbonate.
