SCALEGUARD proppant-delivered scale-inhibiting technology is a porous ceramic proppant engineered with an innovative controlled release technology and infused with scale-inhibiting chemicals.
Controlled release technology significantly lengthens treatment life and reduces initial inhibitor washout
Engineered ceramic proppant that provides effective chemical delivery, high fracture conductivity and strength
Long-term protection from a single application
Reduce production maintenance costs
No loss of conductivity or integrity
Our unique SCALEGUARD technology outperforms other production assurance treatments which can be inefficient, expensive and require to be repeated due to their short effective periods.
SCALEGUARD technology is placed throughout the entire fracture as part of the standard fracturing process. A single treatment can be designed to safeguard the entire production system-from the fracture through the wellbore to the surface processing equipment-or the life of the well.
SCALEGUARD technology serves as both a scale inhibitor and proppant that has no impact on fracture conductivity. It does not compromise proppant pack conductivity, nor create excessive fines that restrict or block hydrocarbon flow spaces: a risk associated with lower strength particulate-based carriers.
