POLYSYNAID 8000 is used to stabilize Liquid Slurry and Gas-Phase processes allowing higher polyolefin production rates and production efficiencies. In the polyolefin reactor, fluid bed polymer particles are very close together and can generate static. The static charge causes particles to stick together and to reactor walls. Larger and heavier polymer particles are difficult to suspend and cool. As they become hotter they add to process fouling.
Blockages require long production shutdowns to clear the problems. Elimination of static helps avoid fouling in the form of agglomeration of particles, fines build up on the wall or fines accumulation on the angled top disengagement section of the reactor. The additive is currently used by a number of multinationals in polyethylene production on a global basis to prevent reactor fouling and increase yield and throughput.
Polysynaid 8000 has no components of animal origin.
