Electrostatic Treaters

{0 Comments}

Some treaters use an electrode section. Figure 6-11 illustrates a typical design of a horizontal electrostatic treater. The flow path in an electrostatic treater is the same as a horizontal treater. The only difference is that an AC and/or DC electrostatic field is used to promote coalescence of the water droplets. Procedures for designing electrostatic …

Horizontal Treaters

{0 Comments}

For most multi-well situations horizontal treaters are normally required. Figure 6-10 shows a typical design of a horizontal treater. Flow enters the front section of the treater where gas is flashed. The liquid falls around the outside to the vicinity of the oil-water interface where the liquid is “water washed” and the free water is …

Vertical Treaters

{0 Comments}

The most commonly used single-well lease treater is the vertical treater as shown in Figure 6-8. Flow enters the top of the treater into a gas separation section. Care must be exercised to size this section so that it has adequate dimensions to separate the gas from the inlet flow. If the treater is located …
