Sodium Bicarbonate is used in water-base muds as a source of bicarbonate ions to precipitate calcium and reduce pH. It is primarily used for treating cement contamination. Common names for Sodium Bicar-bonate(NaHCO3) are bicarbonate of soda, bicarb and baking soda. It is a very weak base which is solu-ble in water and dissociates into sodium (Na) and bicarbonate (HCO3) ions in solution.
- Widely available and an economic source of carbonate ions to precipitate calcium while decreasing pH.
- Concentrated chemical; at small treatment levels.
- Reduces pH, which helps maintain a reasonable pH in cement contamination.
- Non-hazardous chemical and generally recognized as safe.
Sodium Bicarbonate is an economical and effective treatment for cement contamination. It precipitates calcium, reduces pH and deflocculates cement-contaminated fluids.
