OS GLIDE LUBE (Fine & Coarse) - Lubricant Beads

 

 

Lubricity

For centuries ball bearings have been applied to reduce the friction between moving surfaces. Ball bearings support axial loads and reduce frictional forces allowing applied torque to the drillstring to better reach the bit and BHA. Lubricity is a critical property of all drilling fluids especially in high angle and horizontal wells.

 

Product Information 

OS GLIDE LUBE is a styrene co-polymer bead specially manufactured for application in drilling fluids. A tried and tested, environmentally safe, highly effective lubricant for drilling fluids. These high crush strength beads blend into any system providing a non-abrasive, insoluble lubricant that reduces torque and drag. OS GLIDE LUBE is particularly effective in reducing metal-to-metal friction but is also effective in open hole. OS GLIDE LUBE is available in Fine and Coarse sizing.
