This new OFX40 centrifuge handles heavy crude with an API down to 11.5 and consistently produces up to 50,000 barrels of pipeline quality oil per day, declares its maker.
Its 3 x 3.3-m footprint offers replacement of gravity settling tanks on offshore platforms for heavy crude oil dewatering.
This complete process system is neatly assembled into an offshore skid complete with process and utility pipe-work and all necessary instrumentation.
OFX40’s Optiphaser controls the separation process to ensure minimal product losses to the water phase. The machine deals with variations in feed composition and reduces reliance on demulsifiers and added heat to a minimum. Optiphaser also balances the feed by adding water when necessary to create ideal separation conditions. This makes it possible to accept up to 50% water in the feed at flow rates from 0 to full flow.
