Crude oil is in most cases a mixture of hydro carbons and water. Successfully treating the water in the crude oil is what the Merus technology does.
Untreated crude oil is often not only very aggressive, but it also contains great quantities of paraffin wax. These and other unwanted ingredients behave somewhat similar in oil lines to lime scale in waterlines. It deposits substances to the surfaces and needs to be removed either chemically or thermically. Merus has the ability to increase the solubility of paraffin wax in oil, so the maintenance intervals can be extended, saving the client a lot of operational costs.
Crude oil also contains aggressive substances that corrode pipes and metals. The Merus water treatment can moderate or even stop this corrosion. However, in-depth research must be done before stating the chances of success. Please contact us directly to see what we can do for you!
