Petroleum ExplorationOil-liquid Separator
1. Longer half-life and is not prone to gelling, unlike other market polymers 2. Nano-polymer that aggregates MFTs, colloidal clays, and increases oil-liquid separation for recovery 3. Removal of Naphthenic acid and other metal residues 4. Inexpensive compared to other market polymers, as it is composed of commodity chemicals 5. Environmentally friendly, non-toxic materials 6. Enhanced bitumen recovery with improved tailings treatment, as silica is a well-known clay dispersant 7. Potential reduction in organic flocculants 8. Remove dissolved solids and organics 9. Increased dewatering rate
hrough both charge attraction and inter-particle bridging and aggregation, the nano-polymer AlumCASTM is composed of the same material that causes the problem: silica, offering increased sedimentation and separation than current products.
