Paraffin Wax

MGT PetrOil Company is a major producer, supplier and exporter of many petrochemical products in the Middle East which is located in Iran. MGT PetrOil Company has many years’ experiences in exporting and it is active in case of Bitumen supplying.

Iran holds the world's fourth-largest proved crude oil reserves and the world's second-largest natural gas reserves. Moreover, the world's top 10 oil producers and top 5 natural gas producers is belonging to Iran. The most important rout for exporting of oil from Iran and all Persian Gulf countries is the Strait of Hormuz, off the southeastern coast of Iran. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) volumes also flow through the Strait of Hormuz.

in 1963, (NPC) National Petrochemical Company was established to spearhead the development and policy-making for petrochemical industry in Iran. the oldest petrochemical industry in the Middle East is belong to Iran. proudly in ethylene production, Iran can be introduced as a second major producer after Turkey. During 1964-1977 Razi, Abadan, Pazargad, Ahwaz carbon black, Kharg, Farabi and Shiraz expansion projects were completed.

Iran as a prominent name in oil and gas industries, has been producing Paraffin Wax in its enormous and well-equipped petrochemical complexes and has exemplary ability in case of supplying this product for exporting. 

What is Paraffin Wax?

Waxes are defined as a solid (at room temperature) but it would be free flowing liquids at slightly higher temperatures. crude petroleum is the main commercial source of wax and mineral wax can also be obtained from lignite, plants, animals, and insects.

The estimation of Overall synthetic wax consumption in North America in 2010 was 420 million pounds (AFPM 2013a). The fastest growing wax markets are belonging to the hydrogenated vegetable and natural palm waxes. Usually Synthetic waxes are represented by Fischer-Tropsch (FT) and polyethylene (PE) waxes currently represent 11 percent of global wax supply (Zaworski, 2011).

nowadays, the United States imports a significant share of the waxes supplied (65.3 percent). International trade has grown increasingly important in wax markets, with the United States being a major global market demander. Important import source countries include China and Canada (AFPM, 2013a).

During periods of high petroleum prices, such as those seen in the 2008 and 2011 (Figure 1), and with the methods used in refining oil producing less by-product waxes, other sources of waxes are becoming economically more competitive.

Paraffin Wax Analysis

(DSC) defined as Differential scanning calorimetry which is used to detect the physical or chemical changes in a material that are accompanied by absorption (endothermic) or liberation of heat (exothermic). DSC would be able to quantify the thermal events, if the original mass of sample is known. DSC analyses would be able to conducted with 0.1 mg of sample, 5-15 mg is a typical size.

one of the most important analytical techniques available today is (FTIR) which can be defined as Fourier - transform infrared spectroscopy. The most important advantage is that any sample in any state can be studied: gas, liquids, solutions, powders, films and surfaces can be examined by a best sampling technique choice.
