About Fast Hydration Guar Gum Powder

Fast hydration guar gum is used to increase the Oil and gas production. Using Guar Gum increase the oil recovery substantially.

Fast hydrating guar gum used as a surfactant, synthetic polymer and defoamer which ideal for all rheological requirements of water-based and brine-based drilling fluids.

Guar Gum is used in oil well drilling muds , which give a better colloid thereby reducing water losses. It regulates the viscosity of mud solution, stabilises and regulates the flow properties of the drilling muds.

Guar gum helps to reduce friction in the holes, and so minimising power requirements. Guar Gum products act to minimise water loss should occur in broken geological formations.

Fast hydration guar gum powder is also knows as diesel slurry guar gum, quick hydration guar gum powder, rapid hydration guar gum powder, fast hydrating guar gum powder, quick hydrating guar gum powder, rapid hydrating guar gum powder.

It is used in oil drilling industries, gas drilling industries and other well drilling industries.

Normally guar gum gives viscosity after 2hors but fast hydration guar gum powder gives viscosity in 3 Minutes.

Fast hydration guar gum powder is categorized in industrial products for paper, detergents & soup textile printing, ceramics, drilling fluids etc…

One of the key differences between ordinary guar gum powder & fast hydration guar gum is that desired viscosity in ordinary gum is achieved normally upto two hours & similarly in fast hydration guar gum is smoothly achieved within just few min. Hence, Fast hydration guar gum powder is considered to be most preferred & best ingredient for oil & gas industry to increase production.

As per successful applications fast hydration guar gum’s major function has been achieve viscosity just in flash of mins; there are findings that it is used for cooling of drill bits, cement slurries mud drilling & where quick cooling, holding water & viscosity are required

Fast hydration guar gum also functions as stabilizing agent, thickening agent & suspend agent in oil well. Avlast Hydrocolloids is a leading manufacturer & exporter of fast hydration guar gum powder in India.
