FORTA SUPER-SWEEP® fiber is a specially-treated 100% virgin synthetic monofilament fiber that is used as a hole-cleaning agent. When mixed and distributed in various fluids, SUPER-SWEEP fiber enhances the carrying capacity of drilling fluids without increasing the fluid’s viscosity. SUPER-SWEEP fiber is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and temperature stable in the designed applications.


FORTA SUPER-SWEEP® fiber is added to a variety of drilling fluids to increase the flow and removal of solids within a well-bore application. SUPER-SWEEP fiber suspends easily and uniformly in fresh water, salt water, and water based drilling muds, allowing it to effectively transport solids out of the drilling environment. SUPER-SWEEP fiber does not affect the chemistry nor increase the viscosity of the drilling fluid.


FORTA SUPER-SWEEP® fiber is easily added and pre-mixed in the drilling fluid at various concentration levels, depending on the level of solids suspension desired. In water, a minimum dosage of one package (15 pounds) of SUPER-SWEEP fiber per 30 barrel sweep has shown to be an effective addition level to remove cuttings and solids. In drilling mud, a minimum dosage of one package (15 pounds) of SUPER-SWEEP fiber per 60 barrel sweep has proven effective. The fluid with the SUPER-SWEEP fiber is then introduced by pump suction to the drilling fluids system and circulated through the drilling system. The SUPER-SWEEP fiber and transported cuttings are removed by the shaker or discharged to the reserve pit.
