The Utilization of Asphalt-Resin-Paraffin Deposits as a Component of Raw Material for Visbreaking

The paper contains the results of experimental study of visbreaking process with the use of organic part of asphalt-resin-paraffin deposits (ARPD) as a raw material component. We studied the influence of ARPD amount as the additive to tar on the output fuel fractions and their qualitative parameters. The proposals on modernization of the industrial visbreaking scheme with blended raw material were made. The analysis of economic performance of the modernized process was carried out.
