This project is mainly about to study the effects of different particles properties on the crystallisation kinetics of paraffin wax. In the oil and gas industry, the crude oil that have a high amount of wax is considered a hassle as it is easily deposited in the pipeline and increase the pump load which resulting in increasing of energy consumption. Sometimes, there is some salt particles extracted along with the crude oil during production as well as sand particles. Thus, it is important to observe and study how these particles with different properties can affect the growth and dimensions of the wax deposits. The properties of the particles such as different mass, different salt type and grain size will be the manipulated variables for this project. These data results is then inputted into the Avrami equation to observe the growth rate and crystal dimensions.
