FQE Chemicals dispersants and solvents are designed to target and decontaminate deposits according to their chemical makeup for rapid and effective cleaning.
FQE Solvent-H+ is a new patent-pending concentrated liquid asphaltene dispersant / solvent decontaminant containing benzene free aromatic petroleum solvents with a blend of new and improved selected dispersants, penetrants, wetting and anti-static agents. FQE Solvent-H+ improves on the decades long foundation of the Solvent-H technology to increase the effectiveness in dissolving solid hydrocarbon deposits.
This experiment was set up to determine the efficiency of asphaltene dissolution using FQE Solvent-H versus two industry alternatives and water. As evidenced in the experiment, the soluble asphaltene was completely dissolved with vapor phase application of FQE Solvent-H. The alternatives tested essentially yielded the same results as using water (steam).
At the end of an hour, when only insoluble coke remained in the FQE beaker, a spatula was used to easily remove particulates from the beaker wall. FQE Solvent-H condensate was then transferred with the spatula to the other three beakers. The powerful active ingredients of FQE Solvent-H, in condensate, was able to solubilize the deposits in the remaining beakers.
In essence, the experiment mimics decontamination of vertical vessels using a vapor phase cleaning technique. The asphalt along the side of the beakers represent heavy fouling of vessels and process equipment, easily addressed by FQE Solvent-H.
