In the petrochemical industry, crude oil processing is accompanied by the loss of oil through waste like sludge from storage tank bottom sediments, slop oil, oil spillage, maintenance- trouble shooting, emergency shut down etc. The recovery of such wasted oil is economically very important for countries having very limited resources for crude oil extraction. One ton of oil sludge waste is generated for every 500 tons of processed crude oil.
When crude oil is stored in crude oil storage tanks, the heavy and higher molecular weight wax and asphaltene separates at the bottom of the stored crude oil under gravity force and remain in the interface along with inorganic material and water. So, the sludge is composed of more wax and asphaltene. Slop oil is a mixture of wax, oil, sand and water.
Sludge breaker chemical breaks the emulsion and separates oil, water and solids when added at recommended concentration and temperature conditions. CRISTOL Sludge Breaker is a specially formulated additive used in the treatment of sludge produced during crude oil processing and highly effective in the treatment of sludge produced during storage tank bottom sediments, slop oil, oil spillage, maintenance- troubleshooting, emergency shutdown etc.
