Effect of Bulk Temperature and Heating Regime on Crude Oil Fouling

M, Ramasamy and U.B. , Deshannavar (2012) Effect of Bulk Temperature and Heating Regime on Crude Oil Fouling. In: ICPEAM2012, 12-14 June 2012, KLCC.



Semi-empirical threshold fouling models predict higher fouling rates at high surface/film temperatures. Several experimental fouling data were analyzed with respect to increase in surface and bulk temperatures that showed a decrease in fouling rates. The possible causes including the effect of temperature differentials, heating regime and the solubility of fouling precursors were identified and reported.
