Realistic Evaluation of Wax Deposition Control

Realistic Evaluation of Wax Deposition Control in Flow Lines: It is important to understand the composition of the wax deposit as well as its rate of deposition. A serial of experimental tests have been carried out at SHEETA to obtain professional opinions for realistic evaluation of wax deposition control in flow lines.
