Dragnet

Trenchless HDD Hole Cleaning

Product Overview

Synthetic fibrous suspension sweeps are routinely being used in horizontal drilling to prevent the build-up of cutting beds. These suspensions in low concentrations are able to maintain a clean hole without negative effects on measurement-while-drilling tools or mud motors.
 


                                                                        
FORTA® DRAGNET™ fiber is a specially-treated 100% virgin synthetic monofilament fiber that is used as a hole-cleaning agent. When mixed and distributed in various fluids, DRAGNET™ fiber enhances the carrying capacity of drilling fluids without increasing the fluid’s viscosity. DRAGNET™ fiber is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and temperature stable in the designed applications.
FORTA® DRAGNET™ fiber is added to a variety of drilling fluids to increase the flow and removal of solids within a well-bore application. DRAGNET™ fiber suspends easily and uniformly in fresh water, salt water, water-based drilling muds, oil-based muds, as well as synthetic fluids, allowing it to effectively transport solids out of the well bore. DRAGNET™ fiber does not affect the chemistry nor increase the viscosity of the drilling fluid.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

FORTA® DRAGNET™ fiber is a specially-treated 100% virgin synthetic monofilament fiber that is used as a hole-cleaning agent. When mixed and distributed in various fluids, DRAGNET™ fiber enhances the carrying capacity of drilling fluids without increasing the fluid’s viscosity. DRAGNET™ fiber is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and temperature stable in the designed applications.

APPLICATIONS

FORTA® DRAGNET™ fiber is added to a variety of drilling fluids to increase the flow and removal of solids within a well-bore application. DRAGNET™ fiber suspends easily and uniformly in fresh water, salt water, water-based drilling muds, oil-based muds, as well as synthetic fluids, allowing it to effectively transport solids out of the well bore. DRAGNET™ fiber does not affect the chemistry nor increase the viscosity of the drilling fluid.

INSTALLATION

FORTA® DRAGNET™ fiber is easily added and pre-mixed in the drilling fluid at various concentration levels, depending on the level of solids suspension desired. Dosages ranging from ¼ pound per 100 gallons in high viscosity fluids to one pound per 100 gallons in clear water have proven to be an effective addition level to remove cuttings and solids. The fluid with the DRAGNET™ fiber is then introduced at the pump suction to the drilling fluids system and circulated through the drilling system. The DRAGNET™ fiber and transported cuttings are removed by the shaker system. In fluid systems employing earth pits, solids will settle in the pits, and the DRAGNET™ will remain in the system. Where DRAGNET™ is incorporated throughout the entire system, DRAGNET™ has proven to be highly effective in low concentrations.
