Fast Hydration Guar Gum Powder

        Made from the endosperm of the guar seed, which is ground into a fine powder, a tiny concentration of guar gum interacts quickly with hydraulic fracturing water to thicken it. In simple terms, guar gum renders the water viscous and thus capable of evenly suspending and carrying proppant deep into the fractures that are created with the enormous pressure of the pumped water. Its biopolymeric viscosity properties also help reduce friction and augment water pressure.

 

        Fast Hydration Guar Gum Powder (FHGG) mainly used in Hydraulic Fracturing. Guar Gum is also used as an ingredient in drilling fluids and enhanced-oil-recovery methods, though not as consistently or in such vast quantities as for hydraulic fracturing. Guar is considered perfect material for hydraulic fracturing due to its following advantages:

  • Available for large amountsHydraulic Fracturing
  • Availability currently not limited
  • Superior thickening agent
  • Excellent friction reducer
  • Crosslinkable
  • Breakable
  • Bio-Degradable
