For High Performance in Crude Oil
LPTM 111 Flow Improver is part of the Lubrizol Specialty Products, Inc. (LSPI) range of innovative and technologically superior Flow Improver Solutions. As part of the portfolio, LPTM 111 Flow Improver provides the answer to systems facing challenging needs.
LPTM 111 Flow Improver has been designed for both multiphase pipelines and applications where the logistical costs of transportation and shipping products can be high. This is often the case for offshore applications.
LPTM 111 Flow Improver has a higher concentration of active polymer in the product, allowing high performance using fewer gallons.
The polymer technology developed by Lubrizol Specialty Products, Inc. allows greater amounts of active polymer to be deployed in a fixed amount of product while improving the dissolution dynamics. The polymer of choice shows excellent hydrocarbon affinity and is able to attain elevated levels of drag reduction under varied operating scenarios. The nature of the polymer provides additional buffering from shear affects.
Similar to the other LPTM Flow Improver products, LPTM 111 dissolves into flowing product without coating pipeline walls and increases throughput while reducing internal corrosion rates.
LPTM 111 Flow Improver is easy to handle, store and clean up. It flows easily and does not require nitrogen pressurized storage tanks.
