Oil-Based Circulation Surfactant (ETI-926)

Oil-Based Circulation Surfactant (ETI -926) is an effective additive added to an oil based circulation that enhance dispersion of asphaltenes and resids. Because of its organic form, ETI-926 can be easily be diluted in the crude or slop oil tanks. ETI-926 will also reduce oil circulation time during normal shutdown procedure. This method provides near total recovery of the hydrocarbon value as the surfactant additive does not stabilize, and can even help to break slop tank emulsions.
