ForceBeads GX, PA and PX – Drilling Beads For Oilfield Applications

Force Chem Technologies has developed a line of drilling beads that surpasses competing brands in terms of quality and performance. Our polymer drilling beads offer a form of superior mechanical lubrication versus other polymer beads. Our glass beads are true spherical beads, not glass shards like our competitors. Our beads compliment our ForceGel xanthan gel, a natural viscosifier.

ForceBeads PX High Temp, Polymer, Drag, Friction, Torque Reducing beads.

  • ForceBeads PX  Reduces torque and drag associated with drilling, logging, workover, completion and coiled  tubing applications.
  • Will reduce the unwanted drag and torque while performing, coiled tubing, drilling, completion, workover and logging.
  • Offers excellent drilling and mechanical lubrication
  • Ideally suited for coiled tubing operations and is a great compliment to your drilling mud.
  • Outstanding biopolymeric lubricant plastic beads used for helical bends and prevention of buckling

Benefits and Features:

  • Reduces torque and drag
  • substantial reduction in casing wear
  • Is non-abrasive
  • Is thermally stable lubrication and torque reduction
  • performs in both water based and oil based muds
  • Highly eco-friendly properties
  • Lubricant for OBM, WBM or SBM
  • Aids in the prevention of differential sticking when drilling muds
  • Aids in directional changes or sliding

ForceBeads PX Benefits When Paired with ForceGlide Pipe Lubricant:

  • Utilizing ForceBeads and ForceGlide for casing run and Casing service will show a chemical and mechanical Help
  • ForceBeads Increase slide and slant rate by offering a mechanical and roll in apparatus.
  • ForceGlide will increase the lubricity and friction reduction for slide of up to 90 degrees.
  • Works in relatively high-temperature conditions.
  • ForceGlide will triple the effectiveness by more than triple of standalone beads treatment
  • Comes suspended in complex biodegradable fluid with multiple disciplines.
    1. Slick Slide lubrication.
    2. biodegradable properties.
    3. light filming & adhesive properties to allow application to be longstanding and support high volume sliding over the full duration of the service process.
  • Both of these products are complementary mixable to maintain bond rate and steady lubrication.
  • Prior cases show the full capability of hard slant capabilities of hard slant and slide casing work and service.
  • PX ForceBeads are shown not to rupture of break in solid to solid high-pressure tension environments and application. Casing service application is high-pressure tension.
  • PX is highly recommended for metal on casing side service.

ForceBeads GX – High Temp Stable, Borosilicate (Glass), Nanoparticle, Drag, Friction, & Torque Reducing Beads

Reduces torque and drag associated with drilling, logging, workover, completion and coiled tubing applications. Will reduce the unwanted drag and torque while performing, coiled tubing, drilling, completion, workover, and logging. GX Forcebeads offer excellent drilling and mechanical lubrication

  • Reduces torque and drag
  • assists in coiled tubing operations
  • substantial reduction in casing wear
  • Is non-abrasive
  • Is thermally stable lubrication and torque reduction
  • performs in both water based and oil based muds
  • Highly eco-friendly properties

GX Reduces torque and drag associated with drilling, logging, workover, completion and coiled tubing applications.
Offers excellent drilling and mechanical lubrication.

Product Benefits:

  • Reduces torque and drag in all situations and in all mud types
  • Offers superior torque reduction inside cased hole.
  • Excellent additive to reduce drag/torque when using coiled tubing inside tubing.
  • Due to specific gravity; glass beads will not float but remain suspended in a viscosified fluid.
  • Outstanding biopolymeric lubricant with glass beads used for helical bending and prevention of buckling

Typical Treatment:

Forcebeads GX (Glass) can be added to the entire system or run in sweeps. Excellent results have been found by first running sweeps at 2% volume while a 1% volume total mud volume produces outstanding friction reduction.

ForceBeads GX and PX come suspended in ForceGel HT Xanthan Gum drilling additive.

Force Fluids PA  Polyacrylamide – Prilled Poly Beads

Cross-linked PHPA (partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide) emulsion polymer and prilled polybeads for multiple drilling and completion gelling operations.
