Seeking Chemical Additives to Prevent Plugging in Pipelines

Posted by Anonymous OrganizationResponsive · Specific Technical Innovation · Project Size Range : Strategic project backed by large scale funding € · Deadline at 16/12/2018 · Switzerland

Desired outcome

Flow assurance is relevant for all processes where materials or fluids are pumped through pipelines e.g. blood in veins, sewer lines, and production processes. Undesired deposition of solid deposits in pipelines can lead to plugging. Besides mechanical solutions, different concepts based on chemical solutions are known. Such chemicals can prevent plugging of flow lines by solid deposits by inhibiting agglomeration, dissolution of solid deposits or inhibiting the formation of deposits.

We invite proposals from technology partners with relevant chemistry in place for novel chemical additives that can be used in at least one of the above mentioned concepts to avoid deposition of solid material in pipelines.

Details of the Technology Call

The proposed additive can be small ions, molecules or macromolecules. It must be soluble and fulfil at least two of the following technical functions:

  • Regulate crystal growth of biogenic, natural and synthetic materials
  • Delay nucleation processes for a certain period of time
  • Reduce propensity of solid particles to aggregate
  • Influence morphology and size magnitude of solid deposits
  • Affect thermal hysteresis
  • Reduce propensity of solid particles to deposit
