RC D&D3 is a select blend of surfactants in an aqueous solution designed to displace and clean water base, diesel and mineral oil base drilling fluids prior to completion operations. RC D&D3 removes mud, sand, oil and polymer from all surfaces including work string, casing, riser, tanks, pumps, lines, shale shakers and other surface equipment.

Typical Physical Properties

Appearance Green, Clear Liquid
Odor Butyl
Specific Gravity @ 60°F 1.025
Density (lbs./gallon) 8.6
Flash Point >200°F
pH 7.5 – 8.8


Please consult a Rig-Chem Representative for an engineered displacement procedure.


RC D&D 3 thoroughly cleans work string, casing, riser, and surface equipment prior to completion operations. Its use reduces or eliminates the need for filtering brine completion fluids.
