Fracking Operations

Our acid additive products for fracking operations are solutions of highly concentrated acid inhibitors for use in acid cleaning operations other than pickling lines. They are specially formulated to excel in fracking operations. We offer both an environmentally safe, non-toxic, "greener" acid inhibitor fluid and a traditional acid inhibitor additive product.

Acid Inhibitors & Additives for Fracking Operations

Potentol® 2803

Potentol® 2803 is a highly efficient organic acid inhibitor that offers 95% protection figures on most grades of steel used in fracking operations. Aside from corrosion inhibition, this product offers excellent wetting properties and removes scale deposits on metal surfaces.

Potentol® 2803 contains no heavy metals, arsenic, formaldehyde, acetylenic alcohols or flammable ingredients as do most of our competitive products. If you want to use a non-toxic acid inhibitor in your down-hole operation, use Potentol® 2803.

Potentol® 2804

Potentol® 2804 offers steel protection figures greater than those of the Potentol® 2803 acid inhibitor fracking solution. Potentol® 2804 offers more than 99.5% steel protection on most grades of steel, which makes it more effective, although it carries a toxic label.

Potentol® 2804 provides excellent protection of tubing and steel used in contact with hydrochloric acid. It possesses surface active ingredients for excellent wetting, while removing scale deposits on the surface of metal tubing.
Additionally, these products work beautifully for boiler cleaning using HCl or formic acids and other pressure cleaning equipment needs. If you need more information on these products, or advice on which one will work best in your particular oil exploration endeavor, call us: 215.324.4000.
