March 17, 2017 – James Noland of Dorf Ketal will present "Work Life Balance - Revisiting the Relationship between Desalting Efficiency and Overhead Corrosion Control". James will explain how a new category of desalter chemistry reduces crude unit OH corrosion risk by improving desalter performance and increasing crude flexibility.  

Dorf Ketal’s new reactive adjunct desalter chemistry is based on safe and easy-to-handle aldehyde chemistry. Aldehydes are known to react with amines, ammonia, metals, and H2S in the crude, forming products of reaction that are easier to remove from the crude. This new category of desalter chemistry improves desalter performance with:

  • Faster emulsion resolution, Better salt removal, Improved control of oil in brine  
  • No acid feed, No loss of control of overhead salt points
  • No pH shock or bug upsets at waste treatment
