XERIC heavy oil demulsifiers
Use lower cost crudes for higher profits
Processing low-cost, heavy crudes with high viscosity, high solids content, and unstable asphaltenes often cause significant problems: uncontrolled emulsions, oil carryunder, and water and salt carryover. These problems result in reduced throughput, wastewater treatment plant upsets, increased fouling and corrosion, and higher energy costs.
Our XERIC™ heavy oil demulsifiers help you reduce feedstock costs and improve feedstock flexibility while maintaining throughput, minimizing operating costs, and improving environmental compliance. Using our well-established crude oil management concepts, the XERIC program provides your refinery with a comprehensive system-wide analysis, effective chemical treatment technologies, and a broad-based design for mitigating heavy oil processing problems.
With proven chemical products and desalter optimization knowledge and expertise, heavy crudes become opportunities to make money rather than potentials for lost profits.
Increase feedstock flexibility
With the XERIC heavy oil program, your refinery can process a wider variety of heavy crudes while decreasing the problems they cause.
Our latest XERIC chemical technologies set a new standard for managing refinery desalter operations while processing heavy crudes.
Predict and control unstable crude blends
With XERIC technologies, we can tell you what problems to anticipate. Whether it is difficulty desalting, asphaltene stabilization of desalter emulsions, or potential wastewater operating challenges, you’ll understand the problems and our personnel will help you solve them.
With analytical tools like BHGE Field ASIT services™, we analyze your feedstocks on site, providing fast measurements of crude blend asphaltene stability. This allows timelier feedstock segregation and blend optimization decisions, and better management of XERIC crude oil blending aid chemical applications.
Increase your refinery profitability and feedstock flexibility, while minimizing operating risks and costs, with XERIC heavy oil demulsifiers. Advantages include:
- Upgraded feedstock quality
- Improved crude unit reliability
- Lower operating costs
- Improved slop oil processing
- Reduced wastewater treatment plant upsets
