VORTOIL Deoiling Hydrocyclone

Highly efficient, compact, and inexpensive method of removing oil from large volumes of produced water

VORTOIL deoiling hydrocyclones incorporate more than 35 years of continuous development and operational experience. They remove the bulk of the free oil content (typically everything with a particle size greater than 10 to 20 um) in a produced water stream to reduce the load on downstream treatment processes. 

VORTOIL Deoiling Hydrocyclone

The central feature of our deoiling hydrocyclones is the internal geometry of each liner design, developed to provide high separation efficiency. Liner installation options that also increase the liner packing density are available, further reducing the package footprint and weight.

With no moving parts inside the vessel and construction materials carefully selected to reduce erosion, the VORTOIL hydrocyclone's functional and elegant design results in operational simplicity and extremely low maintenance. A variety of options are available for flow turndown, including the use of blank liners and multicompartment vessels. A single hydrocyclone is capable of representing the performance of an entire production system in performance testing because of the scalability of its design.

Advantages

  • High-packing-density designs for hydrocyclone liners support smaller vessel sizes and weights, resulting in lower capex
  • Patented simple three-chamber vessel also lowers capex
  • Patented erosion-resistant liner has a longer life, decreases maintenance, and reduces opex.
