We are offering high quality Xanthan gum in large quantity.The
product is light beige or milky white powder,also known as xanthan
gum, Hansheng gum and yellow monocellular polysaccharide.It is an
extracellular microorganism produced by fermentation of sugars by
Xanthomonas flavus.It is a structural polymer of pentose repeat
unit composed of D-glucose, D-mannose, D-glucuronic acid, acetic
acid and pyruvic acid. Its unique molecular structure determines
its thickening, shear resistance and stability at high salinity. It
can be widely used in drilling fluid, completion fluid, fracturing
fluid, oil displacement agent and other fields.

Dissolve in cold water or hot water. Slowly pour xanthan gum powder
into water while stirring. Stir until it dissolves completely.
There is no lump in the solution. Xanthan gum is a natural
biodegradable polysaccharide. If the solution is stored for more
than 4 hours, it is recommended to add biocides.
1.Typical application of xanthan gum
Added Quantity%: 0.3-1.2
Function:Lubricates drill bits and carries drill cuttings,
providing excellent solid transportation and suspension capacity.
Completion fluid :
Added Quantity%: 0.7-1.3
Function:stabilizer, adhesion lubrication, reduce friction
resistance of pump, facilitate material transportation
Profile control and water shutoff:
Added Quantity%: 0.2-0.5
Function: not only reduces the water absorption rate of high
permeability zones longitudinally, but also adjusts the main
channel of water drive horizontally and adjusts the difference of
fluid production between wells.
Added Quantity%: 0.1-0.5
Function: Has good injection ability, can greatly improve the sweep
degree of water drive, reduce the water cut of oil wells, and thus
2.In industry, it is used as stabilizer, thickener and processing
assistant for many purposes, including canned and bottled food,
bakery food, dairy products, frozen food, salad condiment,
beverage, brewing, candy, pastry color accessories, etc.
1.High viscous properties at low concentration;
2.Resistance to acid, alkali and salt, oxidation resistance and
3.Good dispersion, emulsifying stability, suspended particles and
4.Temperature resistance, shear resistance.
