Emulsification is an important function during the production of many oilfield products. Whether it's drilling fluids or enabling the dispersion of water-insoluble materials into aqueous systems.
The emulsifiers offered by Lankem can be used to formulate stable emulsions for use in a broad range of application. The following is a selection of the products that find application as emulsifiers in oilfield applications:
Kemsurf CA, Kemsurf PWS, Kemsurf OT60, Kemsurf OT70G, Lansurf AE33, Lansurf AE35, Lansurf AE37, Lansurf CDE-G, Lansurf CO12, Lansurf CO40, Lansurf SMO, Lansurf STO, Lansurf SMO80 and Lansurf SMO81 are effective emulsifiers for a broad range of oils into both water in oil and oil in water emulsions.
Lanspec OC100 and Lanspec OC200 can be used as secondary emulsifiers in the production of oil based drilling fluids.
BioLoop 56L, BioLoop 68L and BioLoop 84L provide excellent emulsification characteristics being particularly effective emulsion stabilisers which in combination with an excellent ecotoxicity profile making them particularly useful in environmentally sensitive applications.
