Stanrose® Fuel Demulsion
Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification is the breaking of a crude oil emulsion into oil and water phases.
Fuel Emulsion Breaker
Features and Benefits
From a process point of view, the oil producer is interested in three aspects of fuel demulsification :
Rate or the speed at which this separation takes place
Amount of water left in the crude oil after separation
Quality of separated water for disposal
Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification is an aid to the physical removal of water from all grades of fuel.
Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification improves centrifugal separation of fines, it helps prevent sludge formation and stabilises fuel viscosity. The fuel filters and lines will be cleaner with less inclination towards blockage.
The main purpose of Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification is however to rapidly split water in oil emulsions.
Method of Application
Breaks water-in-oil emulsions by lowering the surface tension between the two phases. It is insoluble in water and remains effective even after the water has been removed. Powerful dispersants combat existing sludge formations while homogenizing the fuel to prevent new sludge from being formed.
Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification lowers the surface tension between the oil and water phases in an emulsion. It is completely insoluble in water and remains in the fuel oil phase. It also disperses sludges and any heavy particles into thefuel oil.
Stanrose® Fuel Demulsification is dosed to the bunker tank prior or during bunkering. Dosing is based on water content using test results. If none are available an initial dose of 1:4000 should be used.

Storage and Handling
Store in a dry place, keep container closed when not in use. Avoid contact with skin. Wash with large quantities of water.
In case of contact with eyes, treat with large volumes of water and see a physician.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. In case of contact rinse with plenty of water. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Ensure that the working area is well ventilated.
Store at moderate temperatures in dry, well-ventilated area.
