H2S Knock-Out converts the H2S and Mercaptans into sulfate salts. The chemical then separates from the hydrocarbons due to the higher specific gravity.
For extremely heavy crudes, adjustments to the chemical can be made to increase the specific gravity and speed up the separation process. H2S Knock-Out will not affect the hydrocarbons in any way.
The amount of H2S Knock-Out required to remove H2S from any system is at least 30% less than that of a Triazine based scavenger. The reaction is stable and the result is a non-toxic sulfate salt that can be easily handled.
