Paraffin wax is one of the most common pipeline deposits leading to decreased production and even blockage of oil pipelines. Two widely used remediation approaches include the use of mechanical scrapers and/or solvents. Both of these are not always feasible solutions, particularly for heavily fouled pipelines.  

SureTherm™ thermal cleaning service is a time-delayed exothermic chemical technology that generates heat where it is needed in the pipeline. This proprietary technology allows the self-heating treatment fluid to be delivered accurately for targeted removal of organic deposits.

SureTherm treatment can be applied alone or synergistically with an effective solvent, thereby enhancing the efficiency of both processes. The treatment can be applied while a pipeline is in operation with minimal disruptions to normal production.
