Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 69-82

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2021.136325

Abstract
  Using nanoparticles for adsorbing asphaltene is an efficient method for upgrading actual oil samples compared to other expensive mechanical treatments or even solvents, such as n-pentane and n-heptane, and surfactants. This study uses nickel–zeolite oxide nanoparticles for asphaltene adsorption ...  Read More

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2017.47414

Abstract
  In this study, asphaltene deposition from crude oil has experimentally and theoretically been studied using a test loop and an accurate temperature monitoring during a laminar flow. The effects of oil velocity and surface temperature on the thickness of asphaltene deposition were investigated. The results ...  Read More

A Novel Technique for Determination of the Onset of Alkane Induced Asphaltene Precipitation Using Accurate Density Measurements

Mahdi Kalantari Meybodi; Jamshid Moghadasi

Volume 5, Issue 4 , October 2016, , Pages 25-35

https://doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2016.41573

Abstract
  Onset of asphaltene precipitation is the key parameter in dealing with asphaltene problems because it is the starting point of the asphaltene separation from the solution. In this study, a new technique is provided based on the experimental observations for the determination of the onset of asphaltene ...  Read More
