Drag reducing agent
Drag Reducing Agents reduce the frictional pressure within the flow of a pipeline or
conduit. Acting as buffers along the pipe wall, drag reducing agents are long-chain
hydrocarbon polymers that decrease the amount of energy lost in turbulent formation.
Using drag reducing agents enables operators to increase pipeline flow using the same
amount of energy, or decrease the pressure drop for the same fluid flow rate.
Vira Baspar drag reducing agents form part of our extensive oilfield chemicals range.
Easy to handle with an extensive operating temperature range from -50°C to 40°C our
products are suited to both crude and refined oil applications.
