Wax Control

Wax coverage and conditions for management

Highly accurate measurements for managing wax

The SaphireLab Platform uses Microfluidic chips that are used to visualize and quantify wax appearance, disappearance and coverage. 

Samples are run through a variety of tests to determine an accurate Wax Appearance and Disappearance Temperature. Other tests can be conducted to understand the efficacy of different wax mitigation strategies. SapphireLab can help you hone your understanding of the correct chemistry and concentrations to best execute a well defined wax management program. 

SapphireLab can accommodate extreme conditions as the platform can operate up to 1000bar/15000psi and 200C°/400F°.

Interface Fluidics is a technology company providing energy industry
clients insights into the interactions and properties of reservoir fluids to
help them improve their financial performance and ensure the responsible
development of their oil and gas assets.

  • Interface’s WAT method is built on our in-house microfluidic technology.
  • When looked under cross-polar light, wax crystals appear brighter than the background.
  • Coupled with cross-polar microscopy, this microfluidic method allows WAT measurements at high pressure.
