KX-EB-Line Emulsion Breaker
PRODUCT INFORMATION AND TECHNICAL DATA
KX-EB-Line EB is specifically formulated to destabilize both, oil-in-water and water-in-oil type emulsions when used in low treatment dosages of 50-100 PPM with minimal contact time. For strong stable emulsions, treatment dosages of 500-2500 PPM are recommended.
- Minimal Contact time
- Can be adjusted to match specific emulsion requirements of the client’s sample oil
- Compatible with all K-line products including asphaltene and paraffin dispersants
- Water is separated from oil
Mechanisms for Action:
Surfactants from chemical treatment and natural surfactants present in crude oil, usually soluble in oil and water, tend to form an emulsion which is stabilized by metallic fines present in oil sediments. Our products convert an emulsion into oil & water phases due to reduction in interfacial tension and coalescence of the aqueous phase.
Demulsifiers are generally used in concert with sludge liquefiers and mobilizer chemicals. Treatment chemicals are pumped in under pressure to enhance wetting and penetration via multiple entry nozzles to facilitate processing. Products are quite effective and a suitable choice for use with crude emulsions, waste water treatments, clogged sewer lines, crude oil spills and tank cleaning.
The application of steam heat up to 150-200o F will activate and speed up demulsification thereby, reducing the BS &W (bottom sediment and water) level of crude.
