Emulsion Breakers

emulsion breakerWhat is an emulsion breaker?

A demulsifier, or emulsion breaker, works by separating the two phases of oil and waterin produced fluids.  Raw ingredients vary depending upon specific emulsion composition.  Components of the emulsion may include resins, amines, asphaltenes, clay and paraffins.  Internal testing by Foamtech determines precise product selection.

Under normal circumstances, the emulsion to be treated exists as water-in-oil.  Water existing within produced oil will result in a reject (no sale) or sale at a substantial discount.
