Wax De-oiling Technology for Production of Paraffin and Microcrystalline Waxes


Chemical Sciences, Engineering Sciences

Focus Area:

Paraffin Production

Social Benefits:

Wax De-oiling Technology has a number of distinctive features. Some salient features of Wax De-oiling Technology are : Lower solvent-to-feed ratio with prudent filtrate recycle Optimum solvent dilution scheme combining delayed dilution , Controlled crystallization for producing larger wax crystals with narrow crystal size distribution , In this process, furnace was eliminated from solvent recovery system by applying pinch analysis which helped NRL to reduce carbon foot print considerably , Lower cost in comparison to foreign technologies and energy efficient process.
