Scale Dissolver


EthicalChem's scale dissolver is custom formulated to address a variety of scale compositions. It forms stable chelates with calcium, copper, and aluminum but has outstanding chelating power with the calcium ion; in this respect it surpasses all other cheating agents such as EDTA, NTA and related compounds. It has proven to be effective in dissolving barium sulfate scale, setting it apart from many scale dissolvers currently in the market. 


Customer testimonials for our innovative, new Scale Dissolver are featured in this video documenting successful implementation by our business partner Sahara Petroleum Services at Shell, GEMSA, Zeitoc, and Petrobel.

Filter Cake Removal

Filter Cake Removal


Working in collaboration with Texas A&M, EthicalChem developed MudOut, an innovative, leadership performance, drilling mud filter cake remover that provides uniform breakdown of filter cake.



MudOut solubilizes, dissolves, and breaks down organic and inorganic components of filter cake in a single-step, creating water-wet surfaces and generating acidic conditions. MudOut eliminates the need for pre-treatment water-wetting or post-treatment acid injection steps while outperforming conventional approaches such as formic acid.


The MudOUT Advantage
  • Single-step: no pre-treatment or follow up treatments required


  • Uniform breakdown: no worm holes


  • Complete removal: addresses organics and inorganics


Performed better than formic acid:
                   MudOUT                                          Formic Acid

Test conditions:  5% brine at 190°F over 4, 8, 20, and 42 hours.
