Flow Improver also called Drag Reducing Agent is a long chain polymer chemical that is used in crude oil and refined products pipelines. It is injected in small amounts (parts per million) and is used to reduce the frictional pressure drop along the pipeline’s length.
The benefits of using a flow improver are the following:
Increase in pipeline throughput
Reduction of the waiting time for tanker loading/offloading
Maintaining the throughput during MOL (Main Oil Line) pump maintenance for de-rated lines
Flow Improvers Chemicals allowed pipeline systems to greatly increase in traditional capacity and extend the life of existing systems.
The right product must be selected according to the different crude characteristic.
