OS OXY SCAV SB - Sodium Bisulphite Liquid Oxygen Scavenger
Oxygen Scavengers are commonly added to drilling fluids and completion fluids to mitigate the adverse effects of dissolved oxygen in downhole environments. Dissolved oxygen can radically decompose polymeric additives in the drilling fluid and can corrode the metal casing and the drill pipe.
OS OXY SCAV SB is a sodium bisulphite liquid oxygen scavenger designed to remove dissolved oxygen from aerated water. It is suitable for use in both fresh and salt water based systems.
OS OXY SCAV SB is water soluble and can be added to an active system directly. OS OXY SCAV SB performs well in systems experiencing high temperature conditions.
