SODA ASH

SODIUM CARBONATE

SODA ASH is the common name for sodium carbonate, which separates calcium into sodium and carbonate ions in solution. SODA ASH is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals – Health Effects.

RECOMMENDED USE:

SODA ASH is used to raise the pH of make-up water for bentonite and polymer drilling fluids by precipitating soluble calcium. Using SODA ASH will increase the performance of bentonite and polymer
drilling fluids.

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Easy to mix and use
  • Economical method to increase pH
  • Maximizes yield of drilling fluid

MIXING & APPLICATION:

SODA ASH should be added slowly through a hopper or chemical barrel. When using a barrel, mix SODA ASH into a full barrel of freshwater and provide adequate agitation. Add SODA ASH until pH of 8.5-9.5 is obtained. Suggested ratio is 0.33 to 0.5 lb per 100 gallons (0.25 kg to 0.5 kg per 380 liters) water.
