Gilsonite Lump found in vertical veins. They are between 2-6 feet in width. They`re parallel to every difference and square measure adjusted during northwest to southeast direction. They extend several miles long 1500 feet depth. The vein can show up on the surface as a skinny stone and bit by bit widen because it goes deeper. First difference is that fashionable miners use gas breaking hammer and mechanical hoists.
Gilsonite could be a natural, adhesive hydrocarbon. This natural asphalt is comparable to arduous petroleum asphalt and is usually referred to as a natural asphalt, asphaltite, uintaite, or asphaltum. gilsonite is soluble in aromatic and aliphatic solvents, also as petroleum asphalt. Because of its distinctive compatibility, gilsonite is usually wanting to harden softer petroleum product. gilsonite in mass could be a shiny, black substance similar in look to the mineral volcanic glass. It’s brittle and simply crushed to dark brown powder.
Natural Bitumen also effective at bottom hole temperatures (BHTs) 60°- 230°F (16°-110°C). Typical additive concentrations range from 5- to 50-lb/sk of cement mud. Gilsonite is a mineral bitumen hydrocarbon in rock form.
Iran Gilsonite Sources:
Gilsonite mine owner and powder factory,are located in Kermanshah. At Kermanshah PUBLTD operates a network of underground Gilsonite mines. Also Gilsonite Lump refining plant, and pulverizing gilsonite factory to powder from 200-600 mesh with multiple capabilities on packaging.Our plants have advanced materials handling of Gilsonite Lump and packing facilities, storage silos. pub-ltd is able to provide 8,000 tons of product monthly.
What is Natural Bitumen?
It`s black hard resin and brittle. Also occurs as asphalt complexes in Iran boarder. Gilsonite ore composed mainly of NSO compounds with subordinate saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons. Gilsonite powder is a common drilling mud additive, but it also is used in asphalt paving, roofing and construction paper, paint, ink, explosive, carbon electrodes, and various fuels. At surface, Gilsonite ore dikes range from several millimeters to more than 5m thick. The dike cut across various lower Eocene to Oligocene extension fractures caused by local overpressure in oil shale.
Our Gilsonite Lump:
PUB-LTD Is Gilsonite rock mine owner. Also we provide powder in various mesh size and lump with application including FLC additives in oil well drilling mud. It also use in filtrate control as hole stabilizer for high temperature high pressure oil well HTHP, HTLP. As bitumen modifier uses to mix with asphalt to improve performance and stability of bitumen. The gilsonite is leading in roof coating, building product coating and road sealcoat crack sealer suppliers.
Natural bitumen Grades:
Asphalthum has different specification.In addition it used in more than 160 products. Primarily in dark-colored printing inks and paints, oil well drilling muds and cements, asphalt modifiers, foundry sands additives and a wide variety of chemical products. Gilsonite is compatible with coating material, petroleum resin and oil, pitch and bitumen mixture, vegetable oil and decrease cost of material and homologue with most of materials used in the paint, varnish, primer, mastic, enamel and enamel industry, and at the same time are also highly resistant to acid and alkali materials.
pub-ltd Gilsonite is truly a unique material from how it was formed millions of years ago with a one of a kind geologic event to how we continue to mine the ore by hand today in underground mines. The unique properties of Gilsonite make it a critical material for many oilfield drilling fluid products. Gilsonite is the preferred product for high temperature fluid loss control, shale stabilization, and minimization of stuck pipe. In printing inks, Gilsonite is critical for carbon dispersion as well as excellent binding properties required for high quality printing inks.
We also spending millions to increase our supply to meet current level of demand of oilfield.
