MF-RIG MATE is one step in a two part house keeping system for use with silicate muds.MF-RIG MATE is a concentrated spray coating that beads off mud quickly and efficiently thereby protecting rig components and reducing the effort of cleaning.
To ensure maximum protection from the adherence of silicate muds, the following system should be employed:
- Pre-wash the rig components that would generally come in contact with mud. This includes the mud tanks, shakers, centrifuges, B.O.P.’s, sub-structure, the A-legs and even the Draw-works. Using the wash gun or spray tank, follow the mixing instructions and apply MF-RIG MATE on those components or problem areas.
- If silicate mud is splashed on rig, clean immediately with scrub brush and MF-SILSOAP. Re-apply MFRIG MATE to protect rig surface. As with any mud, cleaning will be made easier by not allowing the mud to dry.
