Roundup 2017 – Discover DD Xpress and our Case Study

Posted by Rod McCoremick on Jan 9, 2017 10:31:05 AM

Roundup 2017 is just around the corner and we are hoping to see you all there at our booth # 1103-1105. We’d love to chat and let you know about a new product that we are excited about.
DD Xpress is a new all-in-one product that requires no pre-mixing – you simply measure your quantity and add it to water. The product eliminates the need to follow a specific recipe. It protects against rod wear, rust and polymer build-up while extending tool life. What’s more, it is environmentally friendly and can be transported by air.


We field tested it with customers and they thought the product made their operations much easier. Precious time spent mixing or even training an assistant on how to properly mix drilling fluid additives is saved. Where they would previously need to have room for 2 pails or 3 pails of product plus an extra empty one for pre-mixing, they now only need one. This is an important benefit for remote locations, or where space is often limited. If a drilling team encounters swelling clay in the ground, they would need a fourth pail. Since DD Xpress has clay inhibitor incorporated in the mix, it handles swelling clay expertly, highlighting its all-in-one feature.



If you’re planning on attending Roundup in Vancouver from January 23-27, a visit to the Fordia booth is a must. Ask our reps for a copy of the case study to learn more about our customer’s experience and check out our nifty aluminum cup, perfect for measuring DD Xpress.

Of course, if you drop by, we will also be able to show you our other drilling equipment and solutions. Write the date and our booth number into your agendas – we look forward to seeing you there.
