Superchem Technology, Inc.
Paraffins (waxes) are aliphatic hydrocarbon molecules that precipitate from crude oil at the point where the temperature falls below the WAT (wax appearance temperature) and may deposit on the production equipment. The precipitates can deposit in the production system, resulting in production decrease and, in the worst case scenario, production shutdown. Control of wax deposition is typically accomplished by the use of chemical treatment, heat management and mechanical intervention. All of these methods can be used either as preventative measures or for remedial treatments. Superchem has developed a series of paraffin inhibitors to reduce the formation of paraffin crystals in crude oil and to aid in lowering the pour point by modifying the wax crystalline structures present in paraffinic crude oils. Our products from a wide selection of different chemistry can be used as:
