February 17, 2015 – Houston, TX; Dorf Ketal Specialty Catalysts will be promoting its industry benchmark Tyzor® line of catalysts at this year’s SPE International Polyolefin Conference to be held at the Hilton Houston North Hotel on February 22- 25, 2015.

Titanium alkoxide compounds combined with metal organics have found widespread application as catalyst components for the production of polyolefins. As the world’s largest producer of organo titanates with regional warehousing throughout the globe, Dorf Ketal offers direct buying advantages as compared to purchasing through a distributor with both packaging and pressure vessel options available. 

This year’s conference theme is Four Decades of Advancing Polyolefin Technology

March 11, 2015 – Houston, TX;
 Dorf Ketal will be unveiling its breakthrough high temperature, high TAN crude corrosion inhibitor at NACE’s Corrosion 2015 in Dallas March 16 - 19, 2015. 

TANSCIENT™ is smarter and safer corrosion protection engineered to maximize return for reliable refining of high TAN opportunity crudes. Its superior phosphorous efficiency means you gain more control of your corrosion protection and reduce your risk in addressing variations in naphthenic acid composition.  TANSCIENT™ offers more effective passivation and ongoing protection with up to 80% less phosphorus than competitor HTCI products. 

Key benefits include:

  • Superior thermal stability and oil solubility
  • Maximum surface reactivity, more effective protection
  • Low acidity, does not require cooled slipstream for injection
  • Familiar, easy-to-implement phosphorus-based passivation
  • Reduces risk of phosphorus fouling and catalyst impairment

Dorf Ketal will be exhibiting at Booth #24055 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.
