Paraffin Production Cost Report

Paraffin is a waxy crystalline substance derived from coal or petroleum that is frequently used as lubricant, crayons, wax paper, scented candles, petroleum jelly (cosmetics), and electrical insulation. It is also used as a fuel for rockets, jet engines, and tractor engines. Moreover, many personal care items, such as skin moisturizers, lip balms, and hair styling products, are made from paraffin.  Packaging supplies like cardboard boxes and paper bags are also made with paraffin. Additionally, paraffin wax is also used on porous building material surfaces and coating for packaging paper to enhance its strength and longevity.

The market for paraffin is majorly driven by its applications as a fuel for rockets, jet engines, and tractor engines, which remarkably increases its demand in the aerospace, defence & military, and automotive industries. It is also utilized in the manufacture of various cosmetic products like lip balm, hair styling products, etc., and in electrical insulation, which further promotes its demand in the cosmetics and electronics industry. Moreover, due to its excellent moisture resistance and durability to kraft paper, it serves as an ideal coating for packaging that offers protection against wear and water and is also used on porous building material surfaces, which boosts its market growth and amplifies its demand in the packaging and building & construction industries. Additionally, several factors influence industrial paraffin procurement, such as the availability and cost of production of paraffin’s feedstock, i.e., petroleum crude oil, paraffin market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, environmental regulations, safety standards, etc.

Raw Material for Paraffin Production

According to the Paraffin manufacturing plant project report, the major raw material for Paraffin production includes Petroleum Crude oil.

Manufacturing Process of Paraffin

The extensive Paraffin production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from Petroleum Crude Oil: This method of producing paraffin involves lowering the temperature of the crude oil to precipitate the paraffin wax, followed by shear dispersion and gravity thermophoresis method led by filtration and distillation to give solid wax and liquid oil. Further, the solid wax is sweated and refined to obtain normal paraffin wax.

Paraffin is a form of hydrocarbon. It is a waxy substance made from petroleum that typically consists of lengthy chains of carbon and hydrogen atoms. It is frequently used as a fuel source and in lubricant and numerous wax goods. It is typically colourless or white solid at room temperature. It is soft in appearance with a waxy texture. The chemical formula of paraffin is CnH2n+2 and its boiling point is 370 °C (698 °F). The paraffin solubility in water is ~1 mg/L. The flash point of paraffin is 200–240 °C (392–464 °F; 473–513 K).
