چکیده:

Wax precipitation is one of the most important phenomena in wax deposition and, hence, needs to be modeled. There are various models present in the literature. Won’s model, which considers the wax phase as a non-ideal solution, and Pedersen’s model, which considers the wax phase as an ideal solution, were compared. Comparison indicated that Pedersen’s model gives better results, but the assumption of wax phase as an ideal solution is not realistic. Hence, Won’s model was modified to consider different precipitation characteristics of the various constituents in the hydrocarbon fraction. The results obtained from the modified Won’s model were compared with existing models, and it was found that predictions from the modified model are encouraging.
