If your production water has tight emulsions (oil and water phases mixed) then separating them is a difficult task, especially if you’ve got oil-wetted solids in the mix. And if you’re running your slop oil a second time through your centrifuge, you’ve got the wrong demulsifer/polymer mix.
Optimum separation of oil, water and solids from your production water can mean the difference between sinking and thriving for your business. Our SWD experts have the experience and know-how to get the best separation for your product. We’ll start by taking samples and performing lab tests to figure out what’s going on. Then we use good, old-fashioned trial and error to find the right, cost-effective mix of demulsifiers to best and quickly separate the oil, water, and solids.
