  • Applications

    Witbreak DRC-229 is a resin oxyalkylate. This emulsion-breaker works by effectively neutralizing the strength of the natural emulsifying agent, allowing the finely dispersed water droplets to coalesce. As the tiny water droplets merge into progressively larger and heavier drops, the water settles and the oil rapidly rises to the top. The result is a sharp, well-defined oil/water interface and bright, clean and marketable oil.

Detailed description

Witbreak DRC-229 has been specially developed to provide fast resolution of stable emulsions in which water is the internal phase and oil is the external phase. Witbreak DRC-229 displays exceptional water dropping, desalting and oil brightening characteristics. It's unique chemistry enables this intermediate to be formulated to achieve very specific applications for the economical treatment of a wide variety of crudes including waste oils. Finished formulations may be used in typical continuous treatment systems as well as downhole and in batch applications, optimizing the oil treatment process.
