LUB-LS is a liquid modified vegetable oils and emulsifiers used as a general borehole for use in water based drilling fluids. LUB-LS reduces friction between the drill pipe and casing, and between the drill pipe borehole wall. LUB-LS is biodegradable.
LUB-LS is also specially formulated to release differentially stuck pipe.
LUB-LS remains effective and stable up to 160oC.
LUB-LS is recommended for reducing torque and drag.
Improve lubricating qualities of water based fluids.
Free stuck pipe when added in proper concentrations.
Vegetable Oils: 82-85%
TYPICAL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES:
Appearance: Amber liquid
Specific weight at 15oC (g/l): 0.95 – 0.97
Viscosity at 40oC (mm2/s): 280 - 300
Flash point oC: >290
Pour point oC: <-18
PH (1% solution): > 7

LUB-LS should be added directly to the mud system, via either the mixing hoper or the suction pit.
Depending on depth, inclination and length of the open hole, addition is 1-3% by volum of LUB-LS, through the hopper, should provide optimum friction reduction.
Maintenance level ± 1 kg/m3/day.
The most effective perfomance is obtained in a PH ranger between 8 – 9.5
See Material Safety Data Sheet.
INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC SHIPING REFERENCES:
LUB-LS does not have a restricted classification for transportation by the international or domestic regulatory agencies.
SAFE HANDLING RECOMMENDATIONS:
Utilize normal precaution for employee protection when handling chemical products.
Use of industrial gloves, goggless, safety non-ship shoes is recommended for employee comfort and protection.
