Low Shear Benefits

Enabling higher well production rates

Immediately improved separation and PW handling capacity with no additional equipment

Conventional debottlenecking:

During the lifetime of oil production assets, the produced fluids and volumes will change, possibly resulting in capacity and performance issues of the separators. Conventional practices to resolve these issues typically include extensive and expensive modifications.

The low shear approach:

Use of low shear valves/pumps is a cost-efficient way to debottleneck your separation and produced water treatment systems without additional equipment; simply replace the existing components with the more separation friendly low shear alternatives.

Typhonix valves/pumps benefits:

  • Immediate results
    • Increased separator capacity and efficiency
    • Enabling capacity for tiebacks
    • Improved oil and water quality
    • Reduced OiW in discharge
  • Cost-efficient
    • No need for separator modifications
    • No need for additional equipment

Learn more about low shear oil production

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.


The Typhonix Test Center provides the industry opportunity of live testing of process equipment under realistic conditions. Ever since establishment of Typhonix in 2006 flow loop testing has been of vital importance for development of our technologies.
