Typhonix Low Shear Flow Control System

By reducing turbulence and shear forces in valves, you will get a more effective and cleaner production. Typhoon® System is a low shear valve technology developed by Typhonix and the result of a 12 million dollar development program sponsored by Shell, Statoil, Eni, Total, ConocoPhilips, GDF SUEZ, Mokveld and the Research Council of Norway. The Typhoon® System is a costefficient way to debottleneck your separation and produced water treatment system, without adding additional equipment.

Typhoon System:

Typhoon® System is a new, patented, cyclone based concept developed to reduce shear forces and the emulsification of oil and water. Typhoon® System has, through several years of experimental investigations, documented a significant positive effect on downstream oil and water separability and quality. By turning the flow into a cyclonic motion you will get a more gentle pressure decrease. Typhoon System can replace both a conventional choke and control valve.

PERFORMANCE COMPARISON:

By decreasing pressure more gently, Typhoon® System improves oil-water separation. The results from various tests show that performance improvement is observed across a range of flow conditions (various water cut %) and operational conditions (various valve opening %).

User benefits:

The business benefits of using Typhoon® System are:
  • Improved oil-water separation
  • Reduced water in exported oil (less WiO)
  • Reduced oil in produced water (less OiW)
  • Reduced need for separation enhancing production chemicals 

The Typhoon® System is designed and manufactured by the leading international supplier, Mokveld Valves BV. Typhoon System is designed to easily replace conventional chokes or control valves, both axial and angled valves.

Replacing today’s conventional valves with the new Typhoon® System offers a cost efficient solution to enhance separation efficiency and reduce environmental impact with regards to produced water discharge. 
 

Where to use it?

Typhoon® System is a flow control system like any conventional choke or control valve. Typhoon® System is therefore considered for use in all applications where standard valves are used today. In optimizing oil-water separation, Typhoon® System can advantageously replace conventional choke or control valves located upstream main separation equipment or produced water treatment equipment, i.e. upstream large three-phase separators, hydrocyclones, degassers, flotation units, etc.

In this section you will find some more information on different aspects of low shear oil production. The main philosophy of low shear production is to instead of challenging the effects focus on the causes to separation problems.
