TREVOSE, Pa. — GE announced two new products to help refineries process incompatible crude oil blends. GE’s new EmBreak* 2167 and EmBreak 2168 crude stabilizers are ashless and do not contain any metals that could contribute to catalyst contamination or equipment fouling, according to a press release.

These new oil-based crude stabilizers are a part of GE’s patent-pending technology that can be used specifically in refinery desalters and other oil and water separation equipment, noted the release.

They are part of GE's family of EmBreak emulsion breakers, which offer a full suite of products that span the entire range of crudes, delivering superior desalter performance and potentially reducing total costs of operation, stated the release.
