Activated Low-Temperature Viscosity Breaking of Heavy Oil with Additives of Iron Particles and Asphaltene and Paraffin Deposits


The effect of iron-containing solid wastes from metal working, asphaltene and paraffin deposits, and that of an electromagnetic field on activated low-temperature viscosity breaking of bituminous oil has been studied. It has been found that the use of additives and an electromagnetic field makes it possible to reduce the temperature of oil cracking to 397°C, increase the yield of light petroleum products (gasoline, diesel, and gas oil fractions), and increase the quality of produced fractions.
