Rotary Drilling and Coiled Tubing Lubricants

These products are Sulfurized fatty compounds and hydrocarbons, and are popular lubricant additives manufactured by Dover Chemical Corporation. They reduce torque/friction by 40-50% in both conventional rotary and coiled-tubing (CT) drillings at 1% usage level in water-based mud or CT formula.

Doverlube DFA-1010 is a sulfurized fat designed to offer both lubricity and extreme pressure properties in drilling fluids.Doverlube DFA-1010 is compatible with copper alloy components.

Doverlube DFA1208 is a sulfurized methyl ester designed to offer both lubricity and extreme pressure properties in drilling fluids. It contains active sulfur and is NOT suitable for products destined for use in yellow metal applications, as it will stain.
DFA1208 is a very effective lubricant that can be utilized in drilling fluid formulations to decrease wear and increase rate of penetration. The product can be added directly to the mud hopper or to the mud pit.






Doverlube DFA-1121
           
ROP Enhancer for Oil Based Muds (Invert) and Synthetic Oil Based Mud

Inherently self-lubricating, oil based muds typically utilize little additional lubricity additives.  Using a modified Baroid/Ofite lubricity test, Dover Chemical clearly demonstrated that Doverlube DFA-1121 reduces torque on directional drills and improves the Rate of Penetration on vertical drilling.  And, DFA-1121 won’t affect your mud rheology.
