Gelling agent Hydra GEL is a dry modified guar polysaccharide of higher purity. It is used as gelling agent for process fluid of hydraulic fracturing which is pumped into reservoirs. It quickly hydrates in cold water and perfectly crosslinks with borate crosslinkers. After crosslinking a viscous stable gel forms up, containing no lumps or clots. Gelling agent Hydra GEL, of branch 7F and 8F, is a guar polymer of higher friability which makes it possible to it for preparation in hydration units with direct injection into the stream.
Recommended concentration of gelling agent Hydra GEL in fracturing fluid amounts to 2-5 kg/m3.
