Transport Applications

Transport applications of the Proflux technology utilize Transflux products for enhanced mobility of heavy oil and bitumen in pipelines. Transflux enhances the mobility of heavy oil in gathering, feeder and transmission pipelines resulting in additional throughput versus diluents at lower cost. Transflux Ultra performs the same function as Transflux but has been developed specifically to transport bitumen.

Transflux
Transflux is used to enhance the mobility of heavy oil in gathering, feeder and transmission pipelines, resulting in additional throughput at lower cost compared with using diluents.
Transflux Ultra
SECURE is collaborating closely with a major client to redefine the boundaries of the Transflux technology in order to permit the transport of bitumen. A comprehensive suite of experiments using flow loops and flow lines is being performed in preparation for a field trial in 2015. This ongoing project has the objective to cost-effectively transport bitumen in a pipeline without the use of diluents.
