Marcellus and Utica Shale Play Air Drilling Rig Operators

United Oil carries a full line of ISO Grade Pneumatic RockDrill® Heavy Duty, Biodegradable DTH Fluids.

Description: Pneumatic RockDrill® is an ultimately biodegradable (Pw1) , heavy duty rock drilling fluid engineered to meet the demanding requirements of air drilling. RockDrill is formulated with a high viscosity, renewable base oil with additives which impart anti-wear properties and promote corrosion resistance. The natural polarity of the fluid allows the fluid to adhere to metal tooling surfaces while exposed to highly compressed air.

Available Packaging: 55 Gallon Steel or Plastic Drums or 275 Gallon Totes

Air Drilling Foam AirFoam NB: Non–Butyl, Anionic, Biodegradeable Air Drilling Foam

AirFoam NB is a proprietary blend of biodegradeable surfactants which does not contain 2-Butoxy Ethanol.  Many airfoam manufactures are replacing 2-butoxy ethanol with methanol, which has occupational risks and exposure limits.  Airfoam NB provides maximum foaming power in soft and hard water, fresh water and saturated brine solutions.  AirFoam NB produces a stable, consistent foam in the presence of oil or high concentrations of polyvalent cations such as calcium and magnesium.  AirFoam NB is designed to be used in conjunction with United Oil’s Air CI corrosion inhibitor, RockDrill rock and hammer oils and DeFoam silica based defoamer.

Available Packaging: 55 Gallon Steel or Plastic Drums or 275 Gallon Totes

RockDrill® and AirFoam are components of our complete family of pneumatic drilling fluids.
Our systems are engineered to get the most out of your equipment assets.
