The precipitation of paraffins, which are natural components of crude oil, may lead to challenges during production, transportation, or storage. Important factors influencing paraffin wax precipitation are: temperature, climatic conditions, cooling rates of storage tanks and pipelines, and rheological parameters in the pipelines.
Our Basoflux® portfolio comprises a range of specialty products taken from different chemical classes. It helps prevent paraffin-induced plugging of pipelines and improves the rheological properties of highly viscous, parafﬁnic crudes. Basoflux® products help to make your pipeline operations more effective, through avoiding pumping interruptions and reducing total costs.
Basoflux®: our range of polymers which function as pour point depressants, viscosity reducers, and paraffin inhibitors
