The gelling of waxy crudes and the deposition of wax on the inner walls of pipelines present a costly problem in the production and transportation of oil. The object of the present study is to investigate the factors that affect the deposition of the paraffin wax on the pipe surface under different conditions using a flow loop system. A series of experiments on wax deposition from a mixture of waxy oil have been performed in a 65cm by 1cm ID flow loop in both laminar and turbulent flow regime. These experiments were done to study the effect of some important factors on the amount of deposited wax on the pipe wall. These factors consist of flow rate, residence time, wax concentration and temperature difference between mixture and pipe wall. It was found that the wax deposition increases with increasing temperature difference and residence time, but the effect of flow rate depends on flow regime. The other goal is mathematical modeling of wax deposition for a multi–component hydrocarbon mixture. The procedure for generating the model is described in detail. Finally, the results obtained from the model were compared with experimental data. It was found that there is an acceptable match between experimental and theoretical data and to some extent, this confirms the validity of the model and also the ability of the developed model to predict the wax deposition on pipelines under different operational condition.
