Potassium Chloride is a high purity, dry crystalline inorganic/metal halide salt composed of potassium and chlorine, KCl. It has a molar mass of 74.551 g/mol and occurs naturally as the mineral slyvite. Potassium chloride is often referred to as muriate of potash (MOP), particularly when used as a fertilizer.
Applications Primarily used as a shale inhibitor as the potassium ion exchanges with calcium and sodium ions n the interlayer space in elites and steatites, converting them to more stable mica-type structures that do not hydrate and swell. Used to prepare brines for drill-in, completion, and workover fluids.
Advantages Widely used in the industry. Largely benign salt; solutions are neutral pH. Does not significantly impair performance of polymers such as viscosifiers and filtration controllers.
