Caustic Soda

pH Control Agent

Product Description

Caustic Soda (NaOH) is sodium hydroxide, which has a molar mass of 40.0 g/mol. It is a strong alkali and must be handled with extreme care. Its rapid dissolution in water results in liberation of large amounts of heat.

Application/Function

Primarily used to control alkalinity and pH in aqueous fluids (limits the solubility of calcium and magnesium) by precipitating the metal hydroxides, Ca (OH)2 and Mg(OH)2

Aids the solubilization of products such as lignosulfonates and lignites and activates Bentonite dispersion.

Advantages

Economical source of hydroxyl ions to control pH

Concentrated chemical and very effective at small treatment levels

Increases pH which reduces corrosion of steel exposed to drilling fluids

Can be used in most drilling fluids
