  • Patent number: 11370951
    Abstract: Methods of suspending at least one weighting agent in drilling fluids. The embodiments include adding a quantity of precursor nanoparticles including carbon nanotubes supported by metal oxide catalyst nanoparticles to the drilling fluid. The metal oxide catalyst nanoparticles and the drilling fluid are selected such that the metal oxide catalyst nanoparticles are dissolvable in the drilling fluid. The metal oxide catalyst nanoparticles dissolve in the drilling fluid, resulting in an amount of carbon nanotubes dispersed within the drilling fluid. The carbon nanotube dispersion increases the value of at least one of a Newtonian viscosity, a yield point, a plastic viscosity, and a density of the drilling fluid with the dispersed carbon nanotubes versus a similar or equivalent drilling fluid without the carbon nanotube dispersion. The method may further include adding at least one weighting agent which will become suspended in the drilling fluid.

    Abstract: The methods of suspending at least one weighting agent in a drilling fluid include synthesizing carbon nanotubes via chemical vapor deposition on iron oxide catalyst nanoparticles to form a quantity of nanoparticles. Individual nanoparticles of the iron oxide catalyst nanoparticles include a transition metal disposed on iron oxide. The embodiments further include adding a quantity of nanoparticles to the drilling fluid which results in an amount of carbon nanotubes dispersed within the drilling fluid. The dispersion of the quantity of nanoparticles increases the value of at least one of a Newtonian viscosity, a yield point, a plastic viscosity, and a density of the drilling fluid with the dispersed nanoparticles versus a similar or equivalent drilling fluid without the nanoparticle dispersion. The method may further include adding at least one weighting agent which will become suspended in the drilling fluid.

The gel concentrate includes a surfactant system which provides the concentrate having a gel point that allows the gel concentrate to convert from a highly viscous “stiff” gel at room temperature to a thin low viscosity liquid, that when combined with warm or hot water, the thin liquid readily mixes to provide an aqueous solution in which the liquid concentrate and water are uniformly dispersed. The viscosity of the gel at room temperature is about 50 to about 5000 Pa-s. The gel concentrate can be packaged in a squeezable dispenser. The gel concentrate is sufficiently shear thinning to allow it to flow from the dispenser upon mild manual pressure. The primary surfactant(s) of the surfactant system is(are) highly ethoxylated alcohol ethers and highly polyethoxylated alcohols.

  • Patent number: 8653015
    Abstract: A solvent blend cleaner useful for reflux cleaning of chemical manufacturing equipment, including that used in manufacturing pharmaceuticals, comprises a blend of environmentally friendly and safe solvents selected on the basis of specific criteria, such as vapor pressure, vapor density, boiling point, specific heat, and heat of vaporization, among other things; achieves excellent cleaning even upon further dilution with water; and avoids the disadvantages associated with the use of conventional commodity solvents in reflux cleaning methods. Desired solvency, cleaning and wetting properties of the inventive formulations in use can be achieved through blending of solvents having the selected criteria. Additives, such as surfactants, can be added to enhance cleaning and lower solvent requirements.
