Crude Oil Waxes, Emulsions, and Asphaltenes

$119.00 $59.50 (You save $59.50)

by J.R. Becker

Oilfield waxes and emulsions are petroleum byproducts that increase the costs of production, transportation, and refining by causing equipment failures, plugged pipelines, and decreased throughput. This book is the first of its kind in explaining the physical chemical problems associated with waxes and emulsions and the new technologies for treatment of these problems.

Contents:

  • Introduction
  • Petroleum companies and emulsions
  • Forces involved in emulsions
  • Macroscopic physical behavior of emulsions
  • Oil emulsion breakers
  • Water emulsion breakers
  • Petroleum companies and waxes
  • Chemical surfaces
  • Wax crystal order and temperature
  • Wax physical properties
  • Wax and quantum effects
  • Asphaltenes and crude oil
  • Bulk behavior of asphaltenes
  • Asphaltene testing methods
  • Physical properties of treating chemicals
  • Appendices
