Hydroflux Oilfield Demulsifier Range


Drier Oil, Cleaner Water and Sharper Interface at Reduced Treating Costs

Features of Hydroflux
Hydroux is a range of highly eecve emulsier's and demulsiers designed for oileld producon and renery applicaons. Every oileld is as unique as its locaons dier, for this reason we have developed a wide range of demulsiers which oer outstanding performance & reduced treang costs with a smoother operaon.

Benefits of Hydroflux
The Hydroux range has been proven to be highly eecve Worldwide producing drier oil, cleaner water and a sharper interface. Hydroux is parcularly cost eecve in breaking ght emulsions that occur either naturally or by the addion of chemical addives deemed to improve oil producon Hydroux can be used in many oileld systems and situaons concerned with oil/water emulsions. Hydroux oers outstanding performance in heavy oil applicaons with excellent low temperature performance. The Hydroux Oileld Demulsier Range are oil soluble products that destabilise water in oil emulsions. Normally used to dehydrate crude oil. The Hydroux Oileld Demulsier range includes Environmental Demusliers, Droppers, Treaters, Renery Desalters & Hybrids. Hydroux Oileld Demulsiers are compable with the following materials : Carbon Steel, Mild Steel, Stainless Steel 304 & 316. No signicant changes with HD PE & PP, PTFE, VITON & EPDM. Chemiphase is commied to providing the highest quality products and services to its customers. Many of the products are produced in Lancashire, UK where the sites adheres to strict ISO:9001 standards.

This is determined from on site analysis of crude, demulsier tesng on site and then fully re-checked back in the la boratory to ensure that the product we recommend is the best possible t. Once a product has been recommended we oer on-site technical assistance for the product dosage rates and applicaon points. This on-site technical service will connue to ensure that the product remains the best soluon as the oileld changes over the years. Part of the Hydroux range are designed with environmental impacts in mind. Our formulaons have been shown to be inherently biodegradable. None of them are considered to be bio accumulang. When determining the correct Hydroux Treatment by the Chemiphase Technical Team, the following parameters will be assessed : Design of system and typical ow rates.
