WAT: Wax Appearance Temperature

Flow Assurance and Inhibitor Testing

The wax appearance temperature (WAT) is a crucial parameter regarding flow assurance.
The WAT tester by F5 Technologie is available as an extension to our Multi-Place Cold Finger or as a complete stand-alone device.

Our WAT tester combines accuracy, ergonomics and flexibility to a maximum benefit to researchers and producers in the field of paraffin deposition inhibition.

The WAT is not only crucial in terms of flow assurance. Knowing this parameter also helps in planning tests with our Multi-Place Cold Finger. And that is the reason why the WAT tester is available as an extension to our Multi-Place Cold Finger as well. Our WAT tester is able to measure the WAT of 3 samples in parallel, with only 20 ml of fluid per sample. This makes fast parallel testing with a blank and 2 treated samples fast and simple.

Our WAT tester's summarized advantages are:
