POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE has the chemical formular KOH. Molecular weight 56.1.
POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE is a highly alkaline compound used to contrl the PH in KCL
water base muds. It will further assit in the solubility of deflocculant, e. g.
lignosulflonate and chrome lignite. Additon of POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE increases the hydration rate of
clays. High PH is an aid to controlling corrosion and to combat H2S
POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE should be added to the mud as an aqueous solution. Dissolve
the POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE in a chemical
barrel and ad slowly overa complete
circulation. The a mount of POTASSIUMHYDROXIDE required is depentdent on several factors, such as the PH of
the mud, type and concentration of additives in the mud system and amount of
