CARBOHSP high-density sintered bauxite proppant

CARBOHSP proppant has now been replaced by KRYPTOSPHERE ultra-conductive ceramic proppant technology.

KRYPTOSPHERE technology provides a significant improvement over conventional ceramic proppant, the advanced CARBO pelletizing process yields a higher conductivity, lower beta factor and lesser erosivity proppant. It is offered in two standard densities: low-density (LD) and high-density (HD).
KRYPTOSPHERE LD ultra-conductive, low-density ceramic proppant has been developed to provide the highest levels of production and recovery across a broad range of stress conditions. The technology significantly exceeds the conductivity, compressive strength and durability of existing low- and intermediate-density proppant as well as most bauxite-based proppant. Typically suitable for applications with closure stress up to 14,000 psi.
KRYPTOSPHERE HD ultra-conductive, high-density ceramic proppant has been specifically engineered for higher closure stress and risk environments, such as the ultra-deepwater regions of the Gulf of Mexico. Typically suitable for applications with close stress over 12,000 psi.
