BioLube Rock Drill Lubricants

Outstanding Performance -- Environmentally Friendly -- Reduces Dependence on Petroleum

well drilling rigBioLube RD and BioLube RDP are a series of readily biodegradable heavy duty rock drill lubricants designed to meet the needs of down-hole hammers and pneumatic percussion rock drills. These products are formulated from high viscosity index (VI) vegetable base oils which have a natural affinity for metal. Anti-wear and anti-corrosion additives are then added to the formulations along with a unique tackifier additive, providing drillers with superior protection, minimal wear, and maximum run-time.

In 2010, a drilling supply company conducted testing of hammer wear utilizing BioLube RDP100 during the drilling of natural gas wells in the Marcellus Shale area of the eastern United States. A total of 9 holes were completed using two different systems over several locations. At the completion of the drilling activity, the hammers were taken into the maintenance facility and the pistons were measured by micrometer for wear. Both hammers using BioLube RDP100 recorded zero (0) measurable wear. As a result of this testing, the use of BioBlend products has continued to expand rapidly in these applications.

When drilling with down-hole hammers or pneumatic percussion rock drills, it is inevitable that some lubricant will release into the environment. BioBlend rock drill lubricants are readily biodegradable and have ultra-low toxicity, posing virtually no risk to the surrounding environment. Traditional petroleum oil lubricants are environmentally persistent and can be harmful to living organisms.

BioBlend PO - Biodegradable Penetrating Oil

BioBlend logoBioBlend PO is an excellent penetrating oil and general purpose lubricant that is formulated from readily biodegradable renewable resource base stocks and additives. BioBlend PO has superior wetting ability and a high affinity for metal surfaces, which offers excellent penetrating and loosening of frozen, rusted, or stuck components. The “green” solvents used are excellent for dissolving dirt, grease, and removing debris, while leaving a light lubricating film that helps control corrosion. As with any solvent-type product, care should be taken when using around certain plastics, foam rubbers, urethanes, and painted surfaces as they can be incompatible.

Features

  • Biodegradable, a renewable resource and friendly to the environment
  • Helps protect metal surfaces from corrosion
  • Excellent water displacement properties
  • Cuts through dirt , grease and grime
  • Good lubricating properties
  • Affinity for metal promotes fast penetrating action
  • Low toxicity

The wear reduction performance greatly reduces the incidence of premature bit shanking and lowers operating costs.

Features

  • Readily biodegradable
  • Superior anti-wear and extreme pressure protection
  • Advanced rust and corrosion protection
  • High viscosity index/temperature stability
  • Demulsibility and foam suppression
  • Metal adhesion decreases wear and shanking
