Product Highlight

Embreak* Emulsion Breakers

SUEZ’s phase separation product line is designed to assist in separating solid-liquid, liquid-liquid, and gas-liquid mixtures. The largest segment of the product line is emulsion breakers, which are specifically formulated for desalters in the Embreak product family.

Embreak includes primary demulsifiers, as well as adjuncts such as crude stabilizers, wetting agents, pH modifiers, and reverse breakers. Product selection is empirical and conducted by modeling the desalter environment (temperature, wash water rate, and shear energy).
