Fluids for refining, fuels and lube additives

Highlighted by Solvesso™ aromatic fluids , also called ExxonMobil™ aromatic fluids in the U.S., our broad fluids portfolio enables formulators to choose the grade that will provide the best possible performance for their refining, fuel or lube additives.

In gasoline and diesel fuels, ExxonMobil Chemical fluids carry the active ingredients of additive formulations to meet fuel specifications and enhance performance delivered at the pump. These fluids also serve as carriers for chemical packages used in refining processes such as foamers, demulsifiers and corrosion and fouling inhibitors.

In lubricant additive applications, aromatic fluids can be used as both carriers and chemical intermediates that form part of the end product. In every application, formulators can count on the availability of large volumes with the quality and consistency to ensure a stable formulation process.

Fluids features and benefits
The aromatic content of Solvesso fluids is typically above 99% or higher, and they are available in three boiling ranges with varying volatility. They also:

  • Feature high flash points to meet transporting and storage regulations, as well as reduce shipping costs for finished products
  • Have high solvency power to allow high concentration of active ingredients
  • Are available in naphthalene-depleted grades to minimize labeling requirements 

In addition, oxygenated fluids ExxonMobil™ IPA and ExxonMobil™ SBA are used as chemical intermediates that form part of the end product.
