Uncontrolled Asphaltene concentration can lead to reduced flow, cleaning and disposing of waste overuse of costly chemical additives and reduction in product quality.
- Inhibitor dosage verification
- Inhibitor dosage control
- Feedback – process control (crude blending, prior to transporting in pipeline, large economic incentive for refineries)
- Reduces pipeline transportation charges (blended weights heavy + light to reduce density)
- Topper Refinery, Feeding Reboiler
- Transport vessel crude unloading
