To prevent deposition of complex and heavy organic compounds in reservoirs, well heads and pipelines, it is necessary to be able to predict the onset and amount of deposition due to various factors, e.g. flow (shear) rate, temperature and pressure.
Our Wax Flow Loops are designed to simulate these effects in your lab with field parameters under well-controlled conditions.
This instrument offers a variety of test routines dealing with paraffin deposition and flow assurance:
The test pipelines are exchangeable for highest flexibility in simulating field pipelines regarding temperature profile, pressure and shear rate. They have a defined inner roughness, which is highly important to assure reproducible test results.
