SLUDGE FORMATION IN STORAGE OF DIESEL OIL WITH ADDITIVE

During prolonged storage of DS-11 oil with 5% TsIATIM-339 additive, sludge accumulates on the tank bottoms; this sludge is an emulsion of water and oil, stabilized by the surface-active components of TsIATIM-339, including the stable free radicals present in the additive. The emulsion sludges consist of 90-99% oil, 1.4-5.5% solid component, and 0.8-8.6% water. The solid component consists of 75-83% ash elements, including 31-54% barium. The number of paramagnetic particles per gram of solid component of the sludge may vary from 3-10 to the 17th power to 6-10 to the 18th power. Oil losses during long-term storage due to sludge formation may amount to 0.03-0.08% in above ground tanks and 0.18-0.19% in trench tanks, which exceeds the established standard by a factor of 5-10. Analytical data are tabulated.
