include microcrystalline, macrocystalline and semi-microcrystalline paraffin wax.
Paraffin Waxes are macrocrystalline and provide a wide variety of physical characteristics such as oil content and melting point,… can be used in a wide range of industries.
PRODUCTION OF PETROLEUM WAXES
Base oils are produced in a series of steps which are designed to enhance certain desirable properties such as viscosity index, low temperature properties…
In base oil production process, the solvent extracted lube fraction is dewaxed by chilling to a low temperature which removes much of the wax.
This improves the low temperature fluidity of the product, and produces dewaxed lube fractions and slack wax.
