Description

DEVA FLOW-SERIES is a blend of oil soluble polymers formulated to improve the cold flow properties of waxy oils.

Application

DEVAFLO-SERIES should be injected continuously at a turbulent point upstream from where waxy solids first start to crystallise, ideally at 10°C above the cloud point. Dose rates vary with the wax concentration and composition but generally 100 to 500ppm are effective in depressing the pour point.

Packaging

DEVAFLO-SERIES is packed in 210 liter mild steel drums. Net weight is 170 kg.

Physical Properties

Appearance Yellow liquid above 25°C
Density at 30°C 0.850 kg/l
Viscosity at 30°C 24cp
Pour Point (static cooling) 25°C
Flash Point (PMCC) 70
Solvent Heavy hydrocarbon

Storage & Handling

DEVAFLO-SERIES has its hazards associated with hydrocarbon solvents (aromatic). Precautions against fire must be taken during handling and storage. Dry chemical extinguishers may be used for small fires but large fires are best dealt with by the use of foam. The vapor above the liquid in the drums may well reach the lower explosive limit.

The vapor can cause irritation to the eyes and nose leading to factory fatigue. Higher concentrations have a typical narcotic effect on the central nervous systems. The Threshold Limit value is 100ppm. Do not induce vomiting if swallowed but seek medical help.

The Liquid may give rise to cracking and defatting of the skin.

It is recommended that good ventilation is provided in workplace and contact with the skin and eye be avoided by the wearing of protective gloves and goggles. Any splashes should be removed by washing with copious amounts of water.

Customers are urged to ensure that the products are entirely suitable for their own purposes. Deva Drill Tech can frequently help in these technical decisions, if required.

Laboratory test must be carried out prior to the commencement of field application.
