Sludge Breaker / Dewaxing Agent
A water based concoction of light hydrocarbon solvent to soften and break down heavy oils, tar and asphalt sludge deposits which are found predominatly in the pipelines and storage tanks for quick removal. Low dosing is sufficient to soften the deposits with quick penetrations so that the sludge can be flushed with waste oil or water.
- Neutral pH and compatible with all known metallurgies.
- Effective at low concentrations.
- 100% biodegradable.
- Environment friendly and safer to handle.
- Soak & circulation.
- Pressurized injection.
- Chemical pig train.
Sludge Breaker is typically applied neat at 3%-6% dosing with respect to the amount of sludge to be treated. For tank de-sludging application, after dosing in Sludge Breaker, water is injected and accompanied with necessary agitation to achieve the desired viscosity for removal. For pipelines de-sludging application, continuous pressurized injection into the flow lines is recommended. Optimum dosage, temperature and extent of mixing should be determined for cost effective operation.
- Storage tanks & vessels
- Process / transportation pipelines
