NUFLO Cone Success Story By Cameron
Much like the SAGD operations in the Canadian Oil Sands, operators in Bakersfield, CA, inject wet steam into heavy oil-bearing formations to reduce viscosity and push the oil to recovery wells. Wet steam is very tough to measure because it is multiphase, which means only a percentage of the media is steam — in this case, approximately 70% — and the rest is water. This creates havoc with traditional differential pressure (DP) measurement devices like the orifice plate or flow nozzle because water tends to gather in front of and behind the restrictions, which can create a faulty DP.
Increase The Flexibility Of Your Claus Unit By Merichem Company
With the introduction of sophisticated ratio control, O2 enrichment, improved burner design, etc., great strides have been made in the ability of Claus units to adjust to rapidly changing feed conditions, which are experienced in both petroleum refineries and natural gas processing facilities.
In the Macro Porous Polymer Extraction process, hydrocarbon-contaminated water is passed through a column packed with MPPE particles. The particles are porous polymer beads, which contain a specific extraction liquid. The immobilized extraction liquid removes the hydrocarbons from the water. Only the hydrocarbons, which have a high affinity for the extraction liquid, are removed
