AMC BEN™ is a high quality sodium bentonite for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling.
AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ are compressed tablets made from highly swelling sodium bentonite coated with a biodegradable non-sticking film that retards the hydration time and when placed forms a flexible, non-toxic impermeable seal. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the unique coating that slows down the hydration process.
AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is designed for use as sealant for hole abandonment, casing seals or any vertical seal to prevent water movement up or down a borehole.
AMC BENTONITE PLUG™ is available in medium (M) (¼” – 3⁄8’’) and coarse (C) (3⁄8” – ¾”) grades.
AMC BIO VIS XTRA™ is a premium grade, high viscosity, blend of natural polymers specifically formulated for mixing a low solids drilling fluid for use in a water well. AMC BIO VIS XTRA™ is a non-toxic free flowing powder that is biodegradable.
AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a low toxicity, broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a more environmentally acceptable alternative to glutaraldehyde and does not cause skin sensitisation and dermatitis that can occur through the handling of glutaraldehyde making it safer to handle.
AMC BIODEGRADABLE HAMMER OIL™ is a vegetable oil based hammer lubricant supplied in three grades, 150, 320 and 460 centipoise.
AMC BIT GUARD™ is a vegetable oil based lubricant that has been developed as a surface-acting rate of penetration (ROP) enhancer and is designed for use in water-based drilling fluid systems. Its properties were designed for the operating parameters at the face of an impregnated diamond bit giving improved penetration rates and extended bit life. A fluid system containing AMC BIT GUARD™ promotes hydrophobic coating on both the bit and cuttings surfaces. This prevents clay and shale cuttings from balling up the bit and blocking nozzles, improving bit cutting efficiency and increasing penetration rates.
AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER™ is a multifunctional product formulated specifically for air drilling applications including “Drill & Blast”. It helps prevent a wide range of down-hole problems including poor collaring, hole decay or sidewall instability, significantly reducing the need for excess conditioning, expensive redrills or casing.
AMC BORE SEAL™ is used to improve borehole stability and core recovery by improving fluid loss control, seepage loss and other fluid loss control situations in highly porous and fractured formations. It is available in three grades – (F)ine, (M)edium and (C)oarse. AMC BORE SEAL™ F fibers will matrix within the wall cake to form an impermeable thin skin on the filter bed resulting in minimal fluid invasion into formation. AMC BORE SEAL™ M & C can be used as loss circulation additives when more severe losses are encountered.
Down the borehole, you can’t always predict when or how things will go wrong. AMC’s patent pending Borehole Optimisation System (AMC BOS™) anticipates fluid loss, lost circulation and unstable zones, even in the most difficult conditions – making operations smoother and more predictable.
