Emulsions breakers

Destabilisation of emulsifiers in demulsification plants

Emulsion breakers, emulsion splitters or demulsifiers are strongly cationic organic compounds, which aim to destabilize emulsifiers in oil-water mixtures, as found in e.g. demulsification plants. In a subsequent process the wastewater is often treated with polymer flocculants.

Effect of emulsion splitters

The emulsion breakers from our POLY SEPAR® CFL series are highly efficient organic charge carriers whose cationic nature facilitates a specific destabilization of emulsions and coagulation of solids in water. After a brief period, the oil forms a thin layer on the surface of the water and can be collected for secondary uses. The water phase can be discharged into the sewer system as purified according to the wastewater ordinance.

Emulsion breakers from SEPAR CHEMIE

The emulsion breakers from SEPAR CHEMIE are available as:
•    Plant based
•    PolyDADMAC
•    PolyAmin

Examples for the application of emulsion breakers

Our demulsifiers are employed in the purification (treatment) of industrial wastewaters for:
•    Breaking down industrial cooling lubricants
•    Coagulation of latex and paint wastewaters
•    Coagulation of wastewaters from glue production
•    Coagulation of dispersed systems
•    Treatment of wash waters
•    Treatment of degreasing baths

Handling of emulsion breakers

The required dosage depends upon the medium to be treated, the technical equipment on site (wastewater treatment plant, emulsion splitting plant) and must be determined in laboratory tests.
