Mincon Envirosafe Foamer ES an environmentally acceptable foaming agent to be used in mineral exploration, oil and gas exploration and water well drilling operations. It has also been used as a drilling aid for monitoring wells. Mincon Envirosafe Foamer ES has an excellent half-life comparable to the leading foams on the market. It develops immediate tight foam (compact bubbles) with good lifting characteristics. Mincon Envirosafe Foamer ES can be enhanced by the addition of Mincon Hole Control to create significantly stiffer foam if required. The suggested dosage under normal drilling onditions is 0.5% – 1.0% by volume and 2.0% – 3.0% by volume when there is excessive water influx. Dosages will depend on chemical make-up of the drilling water, volume of water used, and the depth of the hole.
