Resource-efficient refinery processing solutions

Evonik’s comprehensive range of refinery processing solutions for production and storage deliver improved operations in solvent dewaxing units (SDUs) with:

  • Higher dewaxing unit throughput
  • Higher oil yield and lower residual oil in the wax
  • Reduced solvent/oil ratios and wash solvent volumes
  • Reduced filter fouling
  • Reduced operation costs

VISCOPLEX® dewaxing aids are designed for solvent dewaxing processes (ketone and propane) that involve differing lube oil viscosity grades, especially bright stocks. VISCOPLEX® dewaxing aid additive solutions for refineries can be implemented quickly, easily, and do not require major capital expenditure.
