Degassers

Degassers

Degassers are often the most misunderstood and under-employed vessels in the process stream.

They can be undersized and are frequently hindered by turbulence, poor oil skimming and solids drop-out. However, with careful design and operating methods they can be usefully employed to recover oil and provide the last step in effective produced water treatment.

Our process understanding is gained from hands-on experience together with Computational Fluids Dynamics and Physical Modelling. Using these techniques we control turbulence to ensure optimum flow conditions. We design degasser internals to make best use of the vessel's size, using gas from the liquid entering the vessel for flotation, to significantly enhance oil recovery.
