Title of invention
 POUR POINT DEPRESSING IONIZATION DEVICE FOR CRUDE OIL AND BUNKER FUEL
Invention discription
 Heavy kinds of crude oil and bunker fuel have a very high pour point, i.e. they remain in solid state of aggregation at a temperature up to 40 °C. Such crude oil is not transportable, therefore the oil industry spends billions of dollars on only partially efficient, eco - unfriendly pour point depressing chemicals in order to keep the oil in liquid state of aggregation, so they can transport it from the oil well to the refinery or to any other designated destination. On the other hand, our pour point depressing ionization technology decreases the pour point of crude oil and bunker fuel from 40 °C to 0 °C, without usage of any chemicals and without usage of any additional energy, on an eco - friendly and cost - efficient way, through usage of a special metal alloy directly on the oil well. Ionization - treated crude oil remains in liquid state of aggregation for minimally one year, solving thereby one of the biggest problems of the oil industry.
