- ... The existing threshold fouling models always predict an increase in initial fouling rates with an increase in bulk temperature which may not hold good for some crude oils. In this study, an improved threshold fouling model is proposed which uses an effective film temperature in the Arrhenius expression. Experiments were conducted in a high pressure, high temperature recirculation flow pilot-scale ...
