Optimising Corrosion Inhibitor Dosage Through Micelles
Discover automated micelle analysis

Anpera Technologies provide products to protect oil and gas infrastructure from internal corrosion, by enabling the better dosing of surfactant corrosion inhibitors and biocides. We provide our clients with opportunities to reduce chemical costs or minimise leaks, in addition to environmental benefits.

Micelles and Asset Integrity

As assets age and produce higher water cuts, the risk from corrosion to infrastructure increases massively.

Film-forming corrosion inhibitors form the first line of internal protection for numerous assets from production to transmission and gathering.

CoMic™ has been developed as a tool to rapidly assess if corrosion inhibitor is being dosed in sufficient quantity to provide complete surface coverage of the interior of a line, through the analysis of micelle populations.

Our most recent platform release combines chemical reagent kits, cutting-edge optical hardware with a simple to use interface that provide micelle analysis at the point of sampling.

CoMic™ Analyser

At the heart of the CoMic™ platform is our micelle analyser hardware. The RN-356-1 unit is a low-footprint, lightweight portable analyser ideal for use in space-limited offshore laboratories or from the tailgate of a flatbed truck.

The system is powered by a simple-to-operate user interface connected directly to our specialist analysis algorithms, on-site corrosion inhibitor analysis is now a reality.

Reagent Kits

Kits are packaged as five sample boxes, providing all consumables and reagents required for micelle testing.

Two kit types are available. Concentration Series Kits are provided for determining Critical Micelle Concentration, or CMC, the chemical dosage at which micelles begin to form in solution, and are designed for use before deploying CoMic™ to the field.

Field & Spike Kits are packaged together for determining the micelle populations of production water samples, and where micelles are absent a method of estimating the level of concentration of underdose.

Analysis Software

Determining the micelle population in complex field fluids is a challenging problem. Our bespoke analysis algorithms have been developed from thousands of lab and field generated samples to simplify the task of reporting micelle populations quickly and accurately.

Analysis software is packaged with the CoMic™ Analyser with results generated from a simple button click in under two minutes.
