Optimizing Wet Crude Treatment

Emulsion Treatment Steps In general, the treatment of water emulsions in crude oil consists of 3 stages: emulsion breaking: includes breaking the film that surrounds the water droplet, by the aid of heat and demulsifier. water droplet coalescence: water droplets combine with each other after breaking the emulsion and being free forming big droplets, coalescence […]

Emulsion Treating Part.2

Emulsion-Treating Methods An emulsion-treating unit or system will use one or more of the methods to aid in destabilizing, coalescence, and/or gravity separation. Each of these treating methods is discussed separately below. Heating. Using heat to treat crude-oil emulsions has four basic benefits: Heat reduces the viscosity of the oil, which allows the water droplets to collide […]
