Clariant launches SCAVINATOR™—a water-soluble scavenger

13 July 2017

Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, introduces an alternative to triazine H2S scavenger chemistry with substantial benefits for oil producers. New SCAVINATOR increases overall production with less downtime due to its best-in-class solids control and reduced potential for mineral scaling.

SCAVINATOR is a water soluble scavenger for removing sulfide species from both gases and liquids and used to control hydrogen sulfide. It can be applied in batch form (contact tower) or continuously injected into pipeline streams.

SCAVINATOR's performance is field proven. Several extended trials and applications conducted with large producers in the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas demonstrate its effectiveness in both direct injection and contact tower applications, with no impact on fluid separation.

Clariant is also the official sponsor of the Pre-Event Training Course. The presentation by Dr. Grahame Taylor, Clariant's Global Innovation Manger for Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers, titled "The Use and Essential Properties of H2S Scavengers", will include further details on the benefits of the SCAVINATOR product.
