|Calcium bromide (CaBr2) is a single salt clear brine fluid of 14.2 lbs/gal density. Calcium bromide has the following features/benefits:
- It is non-damaging to the formation,
- It is thermally and chemically stable,
- It can be blended with other solutions containing bromides and chlorides, and
- It contains 52 percent by weight calcium bromide in solution.
Calcium bromide can be used with calcium chloride brines and dry calcium chloride to formulate non-damaging fluids of densities from 11.7 lbs/gal to 15.1 lbs/gal.
