Demulsifier for slop oils, waste oils and other oil / water emulsions

Principal application:

Demulsifier 3010 destabilizes various water-in-oil emulsions such as slop oils and waste oils. It is useful for splitting emulsions in slop oil processing and related plants. It is especially useful for splitting emulsions from tank and ship cleaning. The product also works well for splitting emulsions having a high content of solids. It is suitable both for discontinuous (e. g. tank) and continuous (e. g. centrifuge) processes.

General description:

Demulsifier 3010 is a synergistic blend of ionic and non-ionic surfactants in water.



Clear to slightly turbid yellow to brown liquid


Odor                                         : mild

Density (20 °C)                         : 0.96 – 1.06 g/cm3

pH (1 w% in deionized water)     : 3,1 – 4,1

pH (concentrated)                      : 1,7 – 2,3

Viscosity (25 °C)                        : 100 - 200 mm²/s

Viscosity (5 °C)                          : 200 - 300 mm²/s

Pour point                                  : about -4 to -11 °C

Flash point                                 : > 100 °C

Solubility (20 °C, qualitative):

  • Water            : soluble
  • Xylene           : insoluble
  • Light gasoline : insoluble


Mode of action:

Demulsifier 3010 splits water-in-oil emulsions by neutralizing the action of emulsifiers naturally occurring in crude oils and slop oils and by its wetting properties.



The dosages strongly depend on slop oil type, the concentrations of impurities (asphaltenes, resins, sediments etc.) and the process conditions (temperature, contact time and intensity of mixing). Therefore, the typical dosages can vary between 300 and 2000 ppm. The optimum dosage has to be determined by preliminary laboratory tests.



Demulsifier 3010 has to be dosed at a point that allows maximum distribution of the product in the treated emulsion.


It must be dosed neat or diluted in water in continuous and fed into the slop oil line or tank by means of a metering pump. It can also be dosed manually. All storage and feeding equipment must be built in materials resistant to organic acids such as AISI 316Ti (1.4571) or AISI 321 (1.4541) stainless steels or plastic materials.

Demulsifier 3010 is intended for industrial and trade use only.


Keep containers tightly closed. Avoid storage below pour point and above 40 °C. Product

changes caused by low temperature storage can be reversed by careful heating and stirring.
