SODIUM BICARBONATE
DESCRIPTION Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHC03) is commonly known as Bi-Carb, Baking Soda or Bicarbonate of Soda. PROPERTIES Physical Appearance: Specific Gravity: Bulk Density: Moisture Content: Melting Point: APPLICATION Sodium Bicarbonate is most commonly used for treating cement contamination by precipitating the calcium as calcium carbonate and reducing the pH. The available H+ ion can reduce the pH in any drilling fluid with a pH above 8.5. As a pre-treatment for drilling hard cement, 22.6 kg of Sodium Bicarbonate will treat approximately 1 cubic foot of cement. If green cement is anticipated, 2-3 times as much Sodium Bicarbonate will be required. MIXING AND HANDLING Sodium Bicarbonate can be added directly through the hopper. Avoid inhaling and minimize skin contact. Sodium Bicarbonate absorbs moisture and dries the skin. Keep stored in a cool dry place to prevent caking and deterioration. Store away from acids. It is advisable to use a dust mask and eye protection while mixing all powdered products.
