Reagents to combat ASPO are designed to prevent deposition of high molecular weight paraffins on the walls of oilfield equipment and transportation systems. The reagents have a pronounced dispersing and detergent effect on high molecular weight paraffins and asphaltenic compounds.
They are activated surfactants in combination with modified polymers in an alcohol-water solution. There are two types of reagents - ARPO solvents and ARPO inhibitors.
Supplied in plastic and metal barrels, IBC-containers by auto or railway transport, railway tanks, as well as in bulk in consumer's containers.
