Using the Turbiscan, the efficiency of dispersant on asphaltenes stability can be monitored objectively in less than 30 minutes. General information on the stability of crude oil and heavy fuel stability can also be obtained.
The innovative method developed by Octel uses the Turbiscan technology and has been granted ASTM D7061-04. It measures the stability reserve of heavy fuel oils upon ageing simulation (precipitation of asphaltenes in alkane). It only takes one click and 15 minutes to measure the stability of heavy fuel oils.
