Heavy Oil Units
Let's face it. Heavy oils create a heavy mess. The right chemistry makes all the difference. And we know chemistry. Having worked in units processing the heaviest, dirtiest crude in the world, our custom solutions combine innovative chemistries and applications, saving you time and money. Learn more about our expertise below.
We Get Our Hands Dirty
Beginning with thorough planning, we tailor each heavy oil cleaning project with the same goals in mind: less time to eliminate contaminants, and a greatly reduced need for mechanical cleaning upon opening. Our specialized chemistries were developed to tackle the toughest challenges globally.
As such, the heavy oil units we treat can be cleared in a remarkable 12 hours – with very little additional mechanical cleaning required. In fact, in many cases our solutions require no mechanical cleaning at all.
Crude Slates Changed, So Did ZymeFlow
When ZymeFlow noticed the increasing processing of heavy opportunity crudes, we saw it as an opportunity to develop a chemistry designed specifically to address unit fouling issues specific to heavy crude refining. The result? Rezyd-HP. A chemistry specifically engineered to clean the dirtiest units across the world.
Traditional cleaning typically leaves feet of hardened coke. Enter Rezyd-HP. No mechanical cleaning needed. Rezyd-HP fluidizes heavy deposits, such as coke, leaving mere inches of fluff coke, that can be easily swept out. All of this results in time savings and significant cost savings for your facility.
