Solvent De Asphalting

Significantly Increase Transport Fuel Yields In Your Refiner

  • The API/FW Solvent Deasphalting process (SDA) separates residue by molecular weight, instead of by boiling point to produces a low-contaminant de-asphalted oil that is rich in paraffinic-type molecules and a high viscosity residue byproduct (pitch).
  • The SDA process efficiently separates vacuum residue into high-quality conventional vacuum gas oil conversion unit feedstock from the lowest quality components in vacuum residue.
  • The API/FW SDA process utilizes the most efficient extraction and solvent recovery systems available resulting in maximizing DAO quality and minimizing costs.
