Oil sticks 21” is a high foaming surfactant capable of foaming in fresh or hard water, saturated brine fluids and can also produce large volumes of foam in the presence of hydrocarbons. The sticks are encased in a quickly dissolved water soluble tube.
Foamers are often referred to as soap; however, the more appropriate name is surfactant, which is a shortened term meaning surface active agent. Surfactants work at the interfaces between air and water to lower the surface tension. By lowering the surface tension, the surfactant holds air bubbles in a ring of water, therefore lightening the waters weight, and enabling the pressures to effectively move the column of water. It takes a special type of surfactant to work in both brine, and the presence of hydrocarbons.
Oil sticks are highly concentrated and should be used accordingly. One stick per 2000 feet of 2 3/8” tubing will sufficiently foam in the toughest applications.
