- Citric Acid helps to reduce pH and to remove calcium when treating cement contamination. .
- The chemical reaction is as below: 2[H3C6H5O7-H2O] + 3 Ca (OH) 2 → Ca3 (C6H5O7)2 ↓ + 8 H2O.
- In freshwater and seawater fluids: 0.5 - 1.0 lb/bbl
- In saturated NaCl fluids: 1.0 - 2.0 lb/bbl
- In CaCl2 brine fluids: 1.0 - 3.0 lb/bbl
Citric Acid is available in 25 kg multi-ply paper sacks, palletized as 40 sacks per pallet.
