Advanced processing methods (e.g. catalytic cracking) reduce the number of side products, such as aromatic hydrocarbons or paraffins/waxes. The lube and paraffin producers are thus forced to find new, more efficient dewaxing / deoiling technologies since increasingly efficient industrial plants require lubricants of higher quality.

The Pörner Group and EDL offer the most efficient solution - the free selection of the process (with or without solvent) or a combination of both technologies, secured by own pilot plants.

Benefits for the customer

Selecting the optimal technology for the customer ensures that the best product qualities are achieved. Besides lower investment and operating costs, lower emissions and less residual products are attractive for refinery owners. Another financial advantage: plant upgrades and capacity expansions can be done with no need to interrupt production.

Efficient combination of processes

The combination of the two processes (two independent lines) provides the following advantages compared to the conventional solvent technology:

  • considerable cost savings (investment and operating costs)

  • much higher product yields

  • heat integration of the plant to save energy.
