Fouling is the process of matter building up inside the reactor walls which often causes blockages leading to increased downtime, or damage to the production line. To help prevent these issues, reactor anti-fouling agents can be used.
Atmer™ 163 is an anti-fouling agent for the Spheripol process which modifies catalyst activity to reduce overheating which causes the polymer to stick to the reactor walls, and helps to lubricate the product so it flows easier through the production line. Additionally, Atmer™ 163 reduces static charge build up, decomposes alkyl cluminum compounds in waste streams and neutralizes acidic catalyst residues.
