Antifreeze Inhibitor Sticks are special water-soluble sticks containing a combination of stabilizers and glycol-based antifreeze that can help reduce the freeze point of the produced water in the production string, flow lines and surface equipment
The Antifreeze Inhibitor Stick can be very effective in reducing ice blockage in gas pipelines where there are orifice plates, chokes and velocity changes by reducing the freeze point of water within the system. Antifreeze Inhibitor Sticks also contain minimal corrosion and scale inhibitors to protect steel in industrial coolant and heat transfer systems. Select Industries Corrosion Inhibitor and/or Select Scale Inhibitor Sticks still need to be used in conjunction with this product as it is not considered to be an alternative treatment method for corrosion and/or scale in oil and gas producing systems.
In order to be effective, the Antifreeze Inhibitor Stick should be used regularly two or three times per week. In most gas producing wells 1-2 sticks per treatment should be sufficient. Treatment can be increased for larger water volume situations. If Antifreeze Inhibitor Sticks are used in conjunction with Select Industries Soap, we suggest using the Antifreeze Inhibitor Sticks on days or times when not using soap sticks to get the maximum benefit from the Antifreeze Inhibitor Stick. The AAntifreeze Inhibitor Stick has also been used with success by insertion into the flowline through a specifically designed device to allow the stick to dissolve as the fluid comes in contact with it.
