- Liquid catalyst for Hysal products
- Used in high density brines to enhance polymer hydration
Hysal Activator is a water miscible polar additive designed to increase the hydration rate of Hysal SF, Hysal HT, or Hysal C.
Hysal Activator is used with Hysal products in high density brines composed of calcium chloride, calcium bromide and/or zinc bromide mixtures having densities ranging from 12 to 18.5 lb/gal.
Hysal Activator is normally used at a concentration of 0.5 gal/bbl of brine. Higher concentrations up to 1 gal/bbl may be beneficial in certain brines.
Pour through a hopper or directly into the mixing tank prior to Hysal additions. Fluid temperatures above 90°F may be necessary to produce a rapid hydration.
