March 21, 2015 – San Antonio, TX; Dorf Ketal will be participating in AFPM's Annual Meeting March 22 - 24 in San Antonio.

The Annual Meeting is the world's premier refining meeting, assembling key executives, decision-makers, and technical experts from refining businesses, technology providers, contracting and consulting firms, and equipment manufacturers around the world. The general session features high profile speakers who will address current issues of importance to the industry. Leading industry experts will share valuable insights on major issues, including energy and environmental initiatives and the latest technical developments impacting the refining and petrochemical industry communities.

Several key Dorf Ketal representatives will be attending the various workshops and association meetings. A featured value message will be Dorf Ketal's introduction of its high temperature, high TAN crude corrosion inhibitor and service program, TANSCIENT™, which has been designed to help refiners take full advantage of opportunity crudes.

TANSCIENT™ is smarter and safer corrosion protection with superior phosphorous efficiency which translates into more controlled corrosion protection and reduced 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

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.
