WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE ECO1ST SEPARATION ENHANCER
Our experience has shown that the Separation Enhancer technology will effectively improve efficiencies, quality, and the levels of separation most oil & gas related businesses are looking to achieve. We also realize and understand that while this is true, customers new to the Separation Enhancer may not be familiar with the systems performance capabilities. Below are common examples as to what can be expected from the use of this one of a kind technology.
- 1.Placement & Installation
- 2. Ionization Begins
- 3. Advanced Separation
- 4. Complete Optimization
All Eco1st Separation Enhancers are made application specific to effectively treat a variation of emulsions while maintaining optimum performance and dependability. We always take into account the working pressures, temperatures, flow rates, fittings, line sizes, fluid description and applicable code requirements. With little down time or site modification the Separation Enhancer (similar to a pipe spool section) will easily adapt to most any site; making for a straight forward installation. In addition, the system is designed to be powered by the energy of the flowing fluids. Therefore, no other power source or routine maintenance is required.
Once installed and production resumes the Separation Enhancer will immediately begin ionizing the fluid and any solids in continuity with the Enhancer. The system will separate simple emulsions throughout the pipeline and tanks, but complex emulsions will separate best after traveling through the Enhancer. Sites vary, but operators generally notice some or all of the following benefits rather quickly, a reduction in pump pressure, better separation, increased recovery, improved oil quality and a diminished waste stream. These results are all achieved in far less time,with fewer processes and equipment compared to conventional treatment commonly utilized today.
All sites that have been in use for an extended period of time will likely have scale and paraffin build up throughout the pipeline and tanks. As we mentioned earlier the Separation Enhance will ionize all fluids and solids in continuity with the Enhancer. This will also cause an expected one-time cleaning phase to occur as the scale and paraffin’s begin breaking down and sloughing off in both the tanks and pipelines. Operators will observe additional carryover of oil and solids in the recovery tanks in most cases. Depending on each sites cleanliness this process could take weeks or months before the tanks and pipelines become thoroughly clean. Once this phase is complete, issues related to scale and paraffin build up will no longer exist.
Long Lasting Solution
The Separation Enhancer technology does not discriminate. It achieves consistent separation regardless of fluid ratios. You can expect to improve your sites efficiencies, while increasing the quality of your produced oil and water. These benefits are all achieved without the need for unnecessary – equipment, processes, chemical applications, routine maintenance or operator adjustment.
