WAXTREAT™ SubZero

ENHANCES CRUDE OIL PRODUCTION IN -40°C TEMPERATURES

High performance, winterized solution for wax build-up in pipeline systems
WITH INNOVATIVE CUSTOMIZATION CAPABILITIES

Clariant introduces WAXTREAT™ Subzero, a high performance winterized PPD with innovative customization capabilities to mitigate wax in crude while reducing OPEX. This new technology enhances performance at significantly reduced dose rates while preventing paraffin build-up in crude oil pipline systems.

WAXTREAT™ SubZero was formulated to prevent /reduce paraffin buildup in pipelines during production and storage, contributing to easier flow of oils, thereby improving production performance, resulting in a revenue benefit to customers. It enhances performance of crude oil at significantly reduced dosage rates; mitigating paraffin build-up in crude oil pipeline systems while reducing OPEX requirements to pipeline cleaning.

Low Temperature Use
REDUCE PARAFFIN BUILD-UP AND DECREASE POUR POINTS DURING PRODUCTION AND STORAGE

In regions where temperatures become extremely low, wax deposits form on the interior walls of the pipes and tubulars, creating a buildup that can eventually lead to complete pipeline plugging if left unchecked. This plugging substantially reduces oil flow and can prohibit flow altogether. High pour point crude creates significant production, transportation and storage problems for our customers. Clariant’s innovative solutions successfully address these challenges.

The unique characteristics of WAXTREAT™ SubZero offer key benefits to our customers:

Clariant Image Icon Performance 2019

High Performance PPD with optimized flow characteristics

Due to its efficiency and above average activity level, customers experience less production downtime, less chemical exposure, reduced lift costs and less energy use, all of which contribute to the reduction of customer operation expenses.

Clariant Image Icon Low Concentration 2019

Lower dose rates generate cost effective benefits to customers

We’re using much less chemical volume which means fewer trucks required to deliver the product and fewer chemical exposure challenges improve the overall safety standards and potential hazards

Clariant Image Icon Less Heating 2019

Highly active winterized product that performs in temperatures as low as -40°C.

Because of its ability to withstand such cold conditions, the crude oil doesn’t require heated storage tanks; cutting this additional cost helps our customers save money and gives us a competitive advantage in the market.
