ABSTRACT:

Pure grade samples from operational wash oil (used in cracked gas compression unit), light cycle oil, heavy residue and heavy diesel oil were obtained. Miscible blend samples of ratio 1: 1 were also obtained from wash oil/light cycle oil and wash oil/heavy residue. These samples were subjected to characterization and the following quality parameters were measured, namely: aromatic content, specific gravity, gum content and distillation range. The results obtained from Tables 2 and 3 for wash oil/heavy residue blend, sample E, showed 44.10, o.:951, 6.72 and 184.2°c - 223.2°c as aromatic content, specific gravity, gum content and distillation range respectively. These quality parameters were se.emingly consistent with the standard for wash oil (Table 3). Enhanced antif:Siuling and dispersing action were observed to be adequate in the wash oil I heavy residue blend, sample E probably due to its high aromatic content. Heavy residue, sample C was therefore seen as most suitable blending solvent for the operational wash oil, sample A.
