Solid Paraffin Inhibitor


ParaSorb is a solid paraffin inhibitor with controlled-release additives that slowly desorb from the proppant pack to provide immediate and long-term protection against paraffin deposition.

ParaSorb material comprises dry, solid particles onto which a specialty chemical has been absorbed. The product is nominally within the mesh size of 20/40 proppant. It is placed in the formation via a fracture, frac-pack, gravel-pack, or pre-packed screen system.

ParaSorb is compatible for use with common stimulation fluids. Because the product is dry and inert, it can be easily cleaned up and will not contribute to chemical run off if spilled.

Applications: Oil and Gas well that exhibit paraffin deposition characteristics.

Benefits: Reduce downtime caused by paraffin buildup in the near well-bore. Improve protection because substrate is inert and remain an integral part of the proppant pack.

Specific Gravity at 60 ˚F: 1.73 g/cc

Bulk Density: 38 to 46 lbm/ft3

Appearance: Off-white to tan solid granules

Typical maximum temperature: ParaSorb 300 ˚F


ParaSorb is recommended to be used at 2% by weight of proppant. Longevity of treatment is based on the expected production rates and can be run at higher contraction but should be approved by the technical department.

ParaSorb is packaged in 50 lbs bags
