Low Shear Benefits

Reducing environmental impact

Reduced emissions to the environment and less consumption of chemicals

Conventional use of chemicals and heating:

Gravity separators can easily remove free water and oil, but emulsions are more challenging to handle. Treating emulsions usually involves adding heat and chemicals to the separation facilities, representing significant investments and operational expenses.

The low shear approach:

Use of low shear valves/pumps reduces emulsions, meaning that the need for chemicals and heating is reduced. This has a direct impact on OPEX and CO2 emissions. With minimal upgrading of the existing facilities, the use of low shear valves/pumps makes oil production cleaner and more efficient, thus bringing value for the operator. In addition, being able to design 20 – 40% smaller and lighter process plants, has a direct impact on the CO2 footprint of new projects.

Typhonix valves/pumps benefits:

  • More compact and cost-efficient separation systems
  • Improved oil and water quality
  • Cleaner production
    • Less oil in the produced water
    • Less emissions to the sea
    • Less CO2 emissions
  • Reduced requirements for chemicals and energy (heat)

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.
