REFINERY CHEMICALS RANGE

KAPL provides a range of refinery chemicals engineered to improve refinery performance.

NOPRODUCTDESCRIPTION
1ANTIOXIDANTS/ STABILIZERSThese additives terminate free radical chain reactions and prevent oxidation degradation without affecting other properties of the fuel.
2POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS FOR FUELThese additives are polymers designed to interfere with the higher hydrocarbon crystallization process, thus modifying their crystal structure. The change in the crystal shape diminishes their ability to aggregates/ inter grow and inter lock, resulting in lowering the pour point of the fuel.
3POUR POINT DEPRESSANTS FOR HEAVY FUELThese additives are polymers designed to interfere in the higher hydrocarbon crystallization process, thus modifying their crystal structure. The change in the crystal shape diminishes their ability to aggregates/ inter grow and inter lock, resulting in lowering the pour point of the heavy fuel.
4CORROSION INHIBITORSThese additives get adsorbed on the metallic surface at a temperature which exceeds 210ºC, protecting the metal surface by forming a film, giving the surface a great level of protection.
5CORROSION INHIBITOR AND LUBRICITY ENHANCER ADDITIVES(FOR FINISHED FUELS)These additives are effective in providing corrosion protection to pipelines, tanks and equipments to transport and store gasoline, diesel, ethanol, heating oils and Aviation fuels. These, also help in providing lubricity enhancement to all finished fuels including jet fuels.
6CETANE IMPROVERSThese additives are used to substantial increase the diesel Cetane number. These additives improve the ignition performance and also reduce diesel vehicle emission.
7LUBRICITY IMPROVERS FOR DIESThese additives impart lubricity to the diesel which gets lost due to removal of natural occurring lubricity components while removing sulfur content from the crude.
8OCTANE BOOSTERSThese additives improve the Octane rating/octane number of the Gasoline. The higher the octane number, the more compression the fuel can withstand before detonating. Fuels with a higher octane rating are used in high-compression engines that generally have higher performance.
9FUEL OIL EMULSIFIERSThese additives are used to prepare a emulsion fuel compound, a mixture of water emulsified in heavy oil. It accounts to the need of fuel oil to flow liberally at lower temperatures. This lower viscosity aspect of fuel oil emulsion provides added savings in energy in pumping the fuel oil and heating it to preserve the emulsion in a proper pumping state.
10MULTI-FUNCTIONAL ADDITIVES FOR GASOLINEThis is a complete performance package for gasoline, used to meet the challenges of modern Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) technology, whilst continuing to deliver excellent performance in traditional Port Fuel Injection (PFI) engine platform.
11DEWAXING AIDSThis product is used at very low treat rates, and interacts with long chain paraffin’s resulting in improved filtration speed and higher oil yield. Thus, it improves the filtration characteristics of the base oil system and provides superior low temperature performance.
12SLUDGE BREAKERSThese additives rapidly dissolve and fluidize sludge, wax, gum and tar formations while effectively separating water from oil/water emulsions.
13ANTIFOULING AGENTSThis product prevents coking and scale-forming in the feedstock heat exchangers of gasoline and diesel hydrotreating units, improves the heat-transfer effect of the heat exchangers, and hence prolong the working cycle of the processing units.
14FOAM CONTROL AGENTS/ ANTIFOAMS/ DEFOAMERSThis product is used in delayed coking units to inhibit the foaming in the coking tower during the coke-formation process, lowers the foam height, improve the utilization rate of the coking tower and add to the processing capacity of the delayed coking unit.
15DEMULSIFIER CONCENTRATESThese additives help in economical demulsification of water from water – oil emulsions.
16DEOILERSThese additives remove/free emulsified oil from separated water in Refineries.
17PPD for BiodieselThese aid in prevention and modification of wax crystallization in biodiesels to ensure trouble free winter operations. These lower the pour point and improve pumpability of the biofuel.
