Glochem 3000 Lab Testing Procedures


The sample of Glochem 3000 concentrate should be transferred to a suitable container and thoroughly mixed with a low shear blender at ambient temperature to ensure homogeneity. 2 parts Diesel (or other light hydrocarbon, i.e. Condensate) should then be added and thoroughly mixed in the same manner at ambient temperature to produce a final blend of 1:2 ratio v/v.


All volume calculations on ppm application for the test program must be calculated on the content of the blended material. Therefore, by way of example, a test carried out at 300 ppm will actually require 300 ppm of diluted product, which will be 100 ppm of the Glochem 3000 concentrate) and 200 ppm of Diesel (or other light hydrocarbon, i.e. Condensate).


Standard bottles and bottle shakers should be used for the test. All testing should be carried out at the starting the temperature of 70oC.


Dependent on available laboratory facilities, the test should be carried out with all flasks containing test material at the target start temperature range prior to being fitted to the shakers.


Each sample should be marked with a numerical identification 1, 2, 3, etc.


Each flask should be made up at 70o temperature and the shaken 199 times or 1 minute with mixer to ensure that the crude and Glochem 3000 are thoroughly mixed to represent the flow from the well head where injection would normally take place under field conditions.


Each flask should be chilled by 5oC to 65oC and reintroduced to the shaker and shaken for 100 times.


The sample should be examined for visual evidence of wax crystals appearing and the result recorded before returning the flask to the shaker where shaking will be applied 100 times.
Photographs of each sample at each stage of the procedure should be provided.
