can be the determining factor if recycled oil is an economically useable fuel.

Midwest Custom Chemical, Inc. is a specialty manufacturer of demulsifiers


utilized for used oil applications. MCC has a proven product line of
demulsifiers covering almost every type of emulsion in this field. These
products are specially formulated from surface active compounds, wetting
agents, and other additives. The applications for these products include the
following:

Soluble oils
Crankcase oils
Refinery slops
Industrial oils
Coal tar dehydration
Bunker Fuels
Tank bottom cleaning

Each demulsifier is developed to perform on a broad range of emulsion


types. This versatility offers an advantage in that several types of oil can be
treated, usually with only one type of demulsifier.

In case of extremely tight emulsions on which optimum performance cannot


be achieved with existing products, MCC is always prepared to develop a
"tailor made" chemical to solve these problems.

The used oil demulsification division has developed a proprietary de-ashing


process which increases the value of the end product at a small chemical
cost. The reduced ash percentage results in the used oil being a cleaner,
more desirable fuel. This technology is proprietary, however on-site
demonstrations can be arranged to exhibit the results on each companys
crankcase oil streams.

3. Add 2000 ppm demulsifier to the oil and shake for 20 seconds.*

4. Place oil in waterbath or oven for 24 hours.

5. Check oil every hour and see if there is a water break developing.

6. After 24 hours check for BS&W.

*Additional samples can be tested at different chemical concentrations to determine the most optimum
treatment for your application.
