Crude Oil

Cleaning Black Powder™ contamination at critical locations reduces costly damage from the well to the refinery. Black Powder presence reduces oil/water/solids separation capability at the battery, damages pumps along the pipeline to the tank farms and displaces storage capacity. This also reduces efficiency of the desalter process and increases energy costs during the distillation process. Black Powder builds up in the distillation trays reducing refining efficiency. Black Powder presence reduces product quality of semi-refined and refined products, while damaging the pumps, valves and meters through all the processes.
