OIL REFINERY CHEMICALS
ECC provides a range of high quality chemicals for use in oil refinery processes.
An oil or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant, where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene and liquified petroleum gas.
The most commonly used oil refinery chemicals are corrosion inhibitors for preventing corrosion in refinery pipework and assemblies, and demulsifiers for helping to separate and remove water from oil.
Demulsifiers, or emulsion breakers, are chemicals which separate water from oil.
ECC demulsifiers are important in the petroleum refining process, where water has to be removed before refining can take place.
ECC can recommend the best demulsifier for your system and offers a range of chemicals, which can be used for batch or continuous treatments.
ECC corrosion inhibitors are specially formulated chemicals for controlling corrosion in oil refinery systems.
Corrosion is caused by the presence of carbon dioxide (sweet corrosion), hydrogen sulphide (sour corrosion), oxygen and bacteria.
ECC corrosion inhibitors decrease the rate at which materials in the refinery system corrode, prolonging the lifespan of oil refinery equipment.
All ECC corrosion inhibitors are carefully tested before use, so you can be sure you are getting the right inhibitor for your system.
