Originally known as Anti-Paraffin Treatment, e9 Treatments are patented anti-paraffin applications that make on-going maintenance of our Digital Level Sensors (DLS) and High-Level Probes practically non-existent. e9 Metal Treatments provide a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating which significantly reduces paraffin buildup on metal instrumentation and ensures ongoing measurement accuracy. All metal components of Electrolab level sensors are treated with e9 Treatments Pro Series Metal Treatment.
e9 Treatments are patented nano-technology surface treatments designed to help overcome the challenges associated with paraffin build-up on stainless steel components of crude oil storage tank instrumentation and other metal assets. This unique material becomes covalently bound to the metal surface to form a permanent, stable chemical bond that reduces surface tension and effectively inhibits the ability of heavy hydrocarbon admixtures, such as paraffins and asphaltenes, to adhere to these surfaces. The result is better performing equipment that is easier to clean and environmentally safe. The surface treatment is stable in continuous exposure of up to 350 degrees F and is highly resistive to abrasion and wear under normal operating conditions.
