Produced Water Primary Treatment

Produced water from the crude oil separation train typically contains 500 - 2000 mg/l of free oil. The first step in produced water processing is to reduce the solids content, followed by the reduction of the oil content to below 500 mg/l by gravity separation using desanding, liquid-liquid separation, skimming or corrugated plate interceptors. Our equipment targets specific oil droplet size, producing smaller and smaller droplets as the liquid progresses through the treatment process.

LLH

Liquid-liquid hydrocyclones are primary separation units that use centrifugal force to separate fluids that cannot be easily blended.
