(AMTECH 100 Series)
Cleaning agents specially made for removal of grease are called degreasers. These may be solvent-based or solvent-containing and may also have surfactants as active ingredients. The solvents have a dissolving action on grease and similar dirt. The solvent-containing degreaser may have an alkaline washing agent added to a solvent to promote further degreasing. Degreasing agents may also be made solvent-free based on alkaline chemicals and/or surfactants.

(AMTECH 1100 Series)
Scale inhibitors are surface-active negatively charged polymers. As minerals exceed their solubility’s and begin to merge, the polymers become attached. The structure for crystallisation is disrupted and the formation of scale is prevented. The particles of scale combined with the inhibitor will than be dispersed and remain in suspension.

(AMTECH 1500 Series)
Corrosion inhibitors are film-forming surfactants that form water-impermeable barriers on metal surfaces. This prevents galvanic corrosion from occurring between the production pipework and the corrosive fluids that are produced through them. We offer corrosion inhibitors for sweet and sour environments and for high and low temperatures. These highly active products can be formulated into aqueous and organic bases. We also offer a number of green corrosion inhibitors.

(AMTECH 2000 Series)
Demulsifiers, or emulsion breakers, are a class of specialty chemicals used to separate emulsions (e.g. water in oil). They are commonly used in the processing of crude oil, which is typically produced along with significant quantities of saline water. This water (and salt) must be removed from the crude oil prior to refining. If the majority of the water and salt are not removed, significant corrosion problems can occur in the refining process.

Deoiler/ Water Clarifier
(AMTECH 2500 Series)
We have effective water clarification under a variety of production conditions that enhances liquid solid separation in wide variety of industrial applications. For offshore environments, removal must be to ≤ 40ppm. Various engineering solutions are employed to reduce oil-in-water content, but for most produced waters, chemical flocculants/clarifiers (also known as deoilers) are used to improve the oil recovery of such equipment to meet and exceed disposal targets.

(AMTECH 4000 Series)
Separate hydrocarbon sludge to recover oil, discharge water to DOE standards and debris as a conservation and value adding initiative. Sludge is produced from the treatment of wastewater in on-site (e.g. septic tank) and off-site (e.g. activated sludge) systems. This is inherently so because a primary aim of wastewater treatment is removing solids from the wastewater. In addition, soluble organic substances are converted to bacterial cells, and the latter is removed from the wastewater.

(AMTECH 5000 Series)
Biocides are used to kill bacteria in fluids that come into contact with hydrocarbon reservoirs and thus prevent their biological contamination. Sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) are particularly problematic. Contamination can lead to many costly production problems, including reservoir souring and its associated problems (enhanced corrosion, H2S scavenging and lower-value crude), as well as reduced reservoir permeability to water and oil.

Wax / Asphaltnes
(AMTECH 6000 Series)
Asphaltenes and waxes are a general category of solids and, thus, cover a wide range of materials. Understanding the fundamental characteristics that define the nature of asphaltenes and waxes is valuable in reducing or avoiding the production impacts of their deposition. This page examines the general chemical classifications and types of asphaltenes and waxes, in addition to their solidification behaviors.

(AMTECH 7500 Series)
Decontamination is the process of cleansing an object or substance to remove contaminants such as micro-organisms or hazardous materials, including chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious diseases such as toxic gases and flammable items from pipelines, tanks and vessels.
