Siemens has developed an easy-to-operate, packaged, electro-oxidation system that can treat even the toughest wastewaters.
Electro-oxidation, also called electrochemical advanced oxidation, uses electricity to generate hydroxyl radicals to perform oxidation in wastewater treatment. A new commercially available electro-oxidation process—Zimpro® Electro-oxidation (ZEO)—is especially effective for treating the highly problematic spent caustic streams produced by sweetening operations in petroleum refineries and ethylene plants, particularly at volumes below the economically feasible threshold for existing established treatment technologies.
Late on a Friday afternoon, there was an emergency phone call to the Siemens Process Instrumentation office in Hauppauge, NY.
Based on experience and knowledge gained from application of the highly-effective Zimpro® wet air oxidation (WAO) technology, Siemens has developed an electro-oxidation process to address the needs of refinery and petrochemical spent caustic treatment.
Smart technologies and connectivity just about everywhere have enabled Siemens Water Solutions to offer comprehensive Life Cycle Management to oil and gas customers worldwide, helping ensure that water treatment facilities are always optimized and available, for decades of safe, dependable use.
Researchers set out to find a substitute for black walnut shells for oil/water separation due in part to the seasonal availability of black walnuts shells. Additionally, a media with improved performance was needed.
In 2008, Det norske discovered hydrocarbons in the Ivar Aasen field some 180 kilometers off the Norwegian coast. When the plan for development and operation was approved by the Norwegian parliament in May 2013, the company immediately started preparing to build an offshore platform to exploit the field – an important milestone in the company’s history. Through Ivar Aasen and with a comprehensive and advanced technology package from Siemens, Det norske will become a leading oil producer on the Norwegian shelf.
In the Castilla oil field in the Acacias township in Colombia, Siemens is partnering with Ecopetrol to set up a system that will purify about 40 million gallons of water daily, equal to the average water consumption of a city of 100,000 people.
The patented Veirsep horizontal flotation system incorporates several unique technologies to separate oil and various other contaminates from produced water and contaminated wastewater streams. Featuring a compact footprint, the unit is fully automated and can be designed to operate in an atmospheric or pressurized condition.
The Spinsep vertical flotation system incorporates several unique methods for removing oil from produced and wastewater streams before they are discharged or injected. Improved technology and a vertical vessel design reduce the footprint required for this innovative flotation system. The Spinsep flotation system can be designed as an ASME code or a non-code vessel.
The Folded Flow® DAF system’s simple and innovative design “folds” the flow by removing effluent from the same end of the tank as the influent is introduced, resulting in a higher hydraulic loading rate. In the Folded Flow® design, as the density current travels laterally, clean water, being heavier, peels away from the bottom of the density current and flows downward.
The Brise™ DGF pump by Siemens Water Solutions has proven to be one of the most effective solutions to treating produced waters. The Brise pump can produce bubbles starting at a size of 1 micron. Currently, there are no other technologies that offer the flexibility and effectiveness of altering bubble size to optimize the efficiency of a flotation unit due to changing water chemistry.
We have been manufacturing API oil water separators since the 1930’s, when we worked with the American Petroleum Institute (API) to develop the industry’s standard design. Our API separator design has been risk-assessed, assuring safe operation.
Siemens Water Solutions offers a complete line of products to remove oily contaminants from water, including the Monosep high-flow walnut shell filter which offers improved technology in walnut shell filtration. The proprietary filter design requires no moving equipment to perform backwashes, and greatly reduces the volume of backwash water produced when compared to other walnut shell filter designs. This simplifies the design of the filters, reduces the weight and footprint, and lowers the cost of multiple filter systems.
Water is a critical element in upstream and downstream activities within the oil and gas industry. Based on thousands of onshore and offshore applications, Siemens meets the industry’s requirements with a proven portfolio of products for physical and chemical separation, biological treatment, and complex hydrothermal technologies. Watch the full video for an overview of water solutions provided by Siemens.
Midsize LNG is a market for the oil and gas industry which gives new players the opportunity to take the stage. Midsize LNG is not just tonnage LNG reduced to a smaller scale, it is a field all of its own and as needs unique solutions and services for business and engineering in order to become successful and deliver on the potential rewards.
Siemens serves the oil & gas industry through a breadth of electrification, automation, compression, digital and environmental solutions—all bound by a common thread of reliability.
The Siemens Subsea Power Grid is a complete medium-voltage power supply and distribution system installed on the seabed that incorporates proven high-quality industrial components including subsea transformer, subsea switchgear, and subsea variable speed drives, as well as a comprehensive power control and communication system. It aims to be the first at water depths down to 3,000 meters at long step-outs from the host, and will be one of the key enablers for large-scale subsea processing.
The new online configurator for SIRIUS ACT assists you from the selection stage up to ordering. The picture-based component selection with drag-and-drop function, graphical preview, customized combinations and various download functions make the configurator pleasantly simple.
Pilot testing is an effective way to determine the performance of produced water treatment products and solutions prior to building full-scale systems.
