GE announced two new products to help refineries process incompatible crude oil blends. Unlike many traditional asphaltene dispersants, GE’s new EmBreak 2167 and EmBreak 2168 crude stabilizers are ashless and do not contain any metals that could contribute to catalyst contamination or equipment fouling. GE’s crude stabilizers help refineries anticipate and respond to processing issues associated with opportunity crudes and their incompatibility.
The new oil-based crude stabilizers can be used specifically in refinery desalters and other oil and water separation equipment. They are part of GE's family of EmBreak emulsion breakers, which offer a full suite of products that span the entire range of crudes.
