Anti-Sludge Agents

An anti-sludge agent effectively disperses Ashphaltene within the oil phase and inhibits the formation of sludge either by acting as a chemical barrier between the asphaltene particles and acid or by reacting with and solubilizing the sludge.


The anti-sludge agent works as a colloid stabilizer to prevent the formation of these deposits during acid treatments. In addition to preventing sludge formation,

it can also perform as a non-emulsifier to prevent some 

acid oil emulsions and improve the performance of othernon-emul­sifiers.
