A recommended usage is 1 drum per 100 bbls of completion fluid. It is always recommended to speak to your RIG-CHEM representative for your specific application of product.


RC PAK-3 is recommended for use in all light and heavy density brines and completion fluids that will come in contact with hydrocarbon producing formations. RC PAK-3 is a “one-drum” solution in where our product contains a corrosion inhibitor and oxygen scavenger together keeping the operator from having to purchase these products separately at a greater cost.
