the production of crude oil, the greatest part of the crude oil occurs
as a water-in-oil emulsion. The composition of the continuous phase
depends on the water/oil ratio; the natural emulsifiers contained in
crude oils have complex chemical structure, so that to overcome their
effect, petroleum-emulsion demulsifiers must be selectively developed.
As a new oil field are developed, and as the production conditions
change at older fields, there is a constant need for demulsifiers that
lead to a rapid separation into water and oil, as well as
minimal-residual water and salt mixtures.
Corrosion inhibitors, which are used for protection of oil pipelines, are often complex mixtures. Corrosion problems may occur in numerous systems in the petroleum industry. ACPA offers a wide range from corrosion inhibitors in the three phases (gas, oil and water) in operating environment and the ability to inhibit the system to maintain low level of corrosion.
Some risk of scale deposition occurs in
many operations in the petroleum industry. Scale deposition happens
particularly in production, simulation and transport. Scaling can occur
when a solution becomes supersaturated, which occurs mostly if the
temperature changes in the course of injection operations. Also, if two
chemicals that will form a precipitate are brought together, a scale is
formed. ACPA scale inhibitors prevent the formation of different scales
(carbonate & sulfate) and their precipitation on the internal
surfaces of the pipelines.
Wax precipitation in the mobile bulk fluid causes an increase in the viscosity of the fluid, if enough wax precipitates, pumpability and restart after shut down can be affected. During transport of fluid through a pipeline a gradual build up of wax on the pipe wall will cause a decrease in the internal diameter of the pipe even if no solidification of the bulk fluid occurs. These chemicals inhibit the association of wax crystals with each other and their attachment to surfaces. They are often comprised of a surfactant type chemical in conjunction with an aromatic solvent to aid solubility of some paraffin waxes. ACPA has a wide range from Paraffin dispersant suitable to solve any problems of paraffin in the oil system.
oil system can become unstable because of changes in hydrocarbon
composition, pressure, or temperature during normal production from the
reservoir or during commingling with dissimilar crude oils. These
changes can generate asphaltene particles that can result in significant
production and refining problems. The generation of these particles is a
two-step process: phase separation and asphaltene particle growth.
Phase separation occurs when nanosize asphaltene particles from the
crude oil precipitate and grow into large aggregates. ACPA asphaltene
dispersants prevent this grow of aggregates, ACPA offers many types of
asphaltene dispersants and technical supports for any of this problems.
Pour-point Depressant (PPD) is a petroleum-product additive that lowers the temperature at which oil ceases to flow, Or an additive that retards wax crystallization and lowers the pour point, the pour point depressants are crystal modifiers, tend to co-precipitate with paraffin crystals and prevent them from forming structured fluid. This will help to reduce: pour point, viscosity, Yield value and Adhesiveness of paraffin to a pipe surface. ACPA present different types of liquid and solid Pour-point Depressant (PPD) to satisfying your purposes.
Biocide is a broad spectrum
anti-microbial agent designed to prevent the growth of microorganisms in
fuel storage tanks. Biocide inhibits the growth of sulfate reducing
bacteria, algae and fungi as well as a host of other microorganisms,
including aerobic and anaerobic bacteria algae, molds and yeasts. ACPA

silicone deposits found on any metallic surface, in particular pipelines and
systems, exchangers, storage tanks. Solvents for cleaning the vessels and lines from petroleum
materials.Powerful detergent containing long chain polymer used for

through the pipeline.
Chemical dispersants can be used to reduce the interfacial tension of floating oil slicks so that the oils disperse more rapidly into the water column and thus pose less of a threat to shorelines, birds, and marine mammals. The action of oil spill-treating agent goes beyond simply dispersing the spilled oil. In particular, oil spill treating agents can be divided in to four classes: solidifiers, demulsifying agents, surface-washing agents, and dispersants. The majority of oil spill-treating agents, however, are described as dispersants. ACPA gives very effective oil soluble and water soluble products, which are biodegradable. These products are certified for both efficiency and toxicity level.
High concentration of H2S is considered to be dangerous to life and health. It is possible to use a scavenger to remove high concentrations of H2S and this may be the best choice for a short-term need especially if capital cost can be minimized through continuous injection. ACPA staff can assist you to identify and select the most cost-effective chemical for your facility. Also, ACPA staff can assist you for applying the scavenger treatments, and monitor the results to ensure optimum performance.

Biofilms are produced by microorganisms and consist of a sticky rigid structure of polysaccharides and other organic contaminants.This slime layer is anchored firmly to a surface and provides a protective environment in which microorganisms grow. Biofilms generally form on any surface that is exposed to non-sterile water or other liquids and is consequently found in many environmental, industrial and medical systems. ACPA Biocide inhibits the growth of sulfate reducing bacteria, algae and fungi as well as a host of other microorganisms, including aerobic and anaerobic bacteria algae, molds and yeasts.
Dispersants are used to disperse small particles or droplets. Dispersant is ideal for improving separation of particles in water and preventing settling and clumping. Dispersants are used in applications; hence, they are highly demanded by the clients across the nation. ACPA dispersants are the best choice for you water system.
At ACPA water based oxygen scavengers are widely used in seawater injection and production separation systems as a tool to prevent oxygen induced corrosion. The level of dissolved oxygen in these systems is required to be kept at a concentration no greater than 20 parts per billion. It is imperative that dissolved oxygen is excluded from all surface equipment to include vessels, surface supply lines, and related equipment / tank associated with seawater and produced water injection systems Seawater injection systems generally handle water with higher dissolved concentrations and typically use deaeration towers in combination with oxygen scavenger for polishing. ACPA has continued to develop new product to address the upcoming production needs faced by those applications in the enhanced oil recovery applications.
ACPA has extensive range of technically advanced corrosion-scale inhibitors have been specifically developed to be used across a wide range of commercial, industrial and process applications. ACPA anti-corrosion-scale products help manage and control the unwanted problems associated with harsh, corrosive environments and hard water, specifically hardness salts and the formation of scale in a wide range of commercial and industrial process environments that often develop within industrial and process systems

the oldest used method in the effective treatment of water and
wastewater. This operation includes removal of sediment, floating
material and turbidity from raw wastewater. ACPA clarifiers are used for
the purpose of clarification of wastewater.
Polyelectrolytes are water soluble polymer carrying ionic charge along the polymer chain. Depending upon the charge, these polymers are anionic or cationic. Polyelectrolytes are available in a wide range of molecular weights and charge densities. Polyelectrolytes are both flocculants as well as deflocculate depending upon the molecular weight. A flocculants is essentially a solid liquid separating agent while a deflocculant is a dispersing agent. ACPA's polyelectrolytes have got a wide range of applications right from water purification, oil recovery, color removal, paper making, mineral processing, etc
