Why do you inject pour point depressant into fuel oil and what is its chemical name?
The pour point is the lowest temperature at which the fuel will flow. Pour point depressant will allow fuel to be used at a lower temperature without problems. Fuel oil must be pumped before it is used and if the viscosity is too high the oil will not flow easily. Pour point depressant might also allow fuel oil to be stored at a lower temperature thus saving some energy that would normally be used to keep it above its pour point. The chemical names of fuel additives are often proprietary and kept a secret, however see the related links for a discussion of pour point depressants.

How do you separate paraffin wax from crude oil?
Waxes are separated from crude oils in a process called solvent dewaxing. A limited number of crude oils are suitable for processing in the lube oil refineries that run this process. These crude oils must have a high wax content in the original crude, resulting in a high pour point, making these types of crude oils difficult to extract and process in other refinery units.

Can oil become ice?
Short answer - No. Oil is hydrocarbon, Ice is water. If you mean - "Can an oil turn to a solid?" then the answer is yes - under certain circumstances. For modern engine oils the temperature at which it will solidify is quite low (-20°C) and can be made even lower by the addition of pour point depressants. As a comparison Jet Fuel (AVTUR / JET A-1) has a freezing point below -70°C.

How do you make scents in candles?
Fragrance oils are used to make candles have their scent and smell. You purchase you some fragrance oils that are used to make candles. There are so many scents you can choose from. You will need to purchase wax, wicks, fragrance oils and a few other supplies to make your candles in. While melting your wax you then would want to pour your fragrance oil in the wax and mix well. That is what makes a candle have their scent.
