bentonite mud breaker


Explanation:
See the links below and search for 'breaker' in the pdf files. Here another example:
Exploration holes are often completed as piezometers.
Revertible drilling fluids have been improved, and there
are synthetic polymers that break down more reliably. If
necessary, specific “breaker” compounds can be used to
break down the mud and clean the borehole.

I can asure you it is the right term.

Example sentence(s):
  • Revertible drilling fluids have been improved, and there are synthetic polymers that break down more reliably. If necessary, specific “breaker” compounds can be used to break down the mud and clean the borehole.
  • The breaker should be added to the Super Mud slurry at a rate of 1 part to 800 parts of slurry.

Notes to answerer
Asker: sorry, it is not the right term, I found some reference to a comber taking out the benonite left from the drilling fluid in the drilling hole. Meaning the comber is removing pore volume..
