  • Patent number: 9790446
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of a chemical composition to modify the physical properties (viscosity and interfacial tension) of heavy and extra-heavy crude oils, to increase their mobility. The chemical composition comprises or consists of a combination of systems based on ionic and non-ionic liquids, which may be pure or modified, mixed in an aqueous or organic medium as a dispersing agent, depending on the nature of the crude to be treated, together with a surfactant. The composition is mixed with the crude oil at a temperature between 5 and 100° C., at pressures from 1 atm (14.7 psi) up to about 680.2 atm (10,000 psi). The composition can be mixed with heavy crude oils, at the point of extraction from the well in the field, during the transport of crude oil in pipelines, or in the well discharge pipelines.

  • Patent number: 9023773
    Abstract: Lubrication additives of the current invention require formation of emulsions in base lubricants, created with an aqueous salt solution plus a single-phase compound such that partitioning within the resulting emulsion provides thermodynamically targeted compounds for boundary layer organization thus establishing anti-friction and/or anti-wear. The single-phase compound is termed “boundary layer organizer”, abbreviated BLO. These emulsion-contained compounds energetically favor association with tribologic surfaces in accord with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, and will organize boundary layers on those surfaces in ways specific to the chemistry of the salt and BLO additives. In this way friction modifications may be provided by BLOs targeted to boundary layers via emulsions within lubricating fluids, wherein those lubricating fluids may be water-based or oil-based.

  • Patent number: 5578557
    Abstract: A food grade compressor oil for use in a high pressure compressor includes a base oil, an N-acyl derivative of the amino acid sarcosine, an imidazoline, and an amine-phosphate. Each of the three additives comprises no more than 0.5% by weight of the oil composition, and results in high lubricity and very low corrosion even when water is present in the oil. The compressor oil may also include polybutene which serves as a thickener, and an antioxidant. The compressor oil of this invention is particularly well suited for use in a hypercompressor used in the manufacture of polyethylene.

  • Patent number: 5531912
    Abstract: A stearate free solid lubricant for cold working of metals contains approximately equal amounts of an alkene-acrylate ionomer and an alkoxylated alcohol in which the alcohol moiety has from 18-60 carbon atoms and the alkoxylate block has about the same number of carbon atoms. This lubricant can be conveniently applied from aqueous solution/suspension and works effectively even when the underlying steel surface has no conversion coating, which is usually required with stearate lubricants for best results.
