Low shear valve principles

The definition and the purpose of the low shear valve is to reduce the shear forces acting on the fluids, while maintaining control properties. One effective way to reduce the shear forces in a control valve is to increase the volume involved in the energy dissipation.

Low shear pump principles

The Low Shear pump is a multistage centrifugal pump with high hydraulic efficiency. The layout and configuration of the individual stages are custom designed to control shear forces and minimize oil droplet breaking.

Low shear multiphase sampling principles

To enable representative samples from the multiphase streams, certain precautions to the sampling equipment and procedures must be taken. A low shear sampler has to ensure that analyzed fluids are not exposed to pressure drop, which in turn, introduce shear forces to the fluid flow.

Coalescing valve principles

In the Coalescing Flow Conditioner (CFC), the turbulent energy that controls flow rate or pressure, promotes droplet growth rather than droplet breaking in multiphase flow.

Low Shear Polymer Injection

Mechanical degradation of polymers is a well-known technical challenge in the petroleum industry. Polyacrylamide molecules are very long flexible chain molecules that are broken when submitted to high shear rates.
