Typhoon® Valve System:
Typhoon® Valve System is developed to reduce shear forces and thereby droplet break-up and emulsification of oil and water. Typhoon® Valve System has, through several years of experimental investigations, documented a significant positive effect on downstream separation, improving oil and water quality. Typhoon® Valve System can replace both a conventional choke and control valves.
By decreasing pressure more gently, Typhoon® Valve System improves oil-water separation. The results from various tests and field installations show that performance improvement is observed across a wide range of process conditions and fluid compositions.
The business benefits of using Typhoon® Valve System are:
- Improved oil and water quality
- Cost efficient separation system debottlenecking
- More compact separation systems
- Increase separator capacity
- Longer production of high WC wells
- Reduced need for separation enhancing production chemicals
The Typhoon® Valve System is designed and manufactured by the leading international supplier, Mokveld Valves BV. Typhoon® Valve 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® Valve 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® Valve System is a flow control system like any conventional choke or control valve. Typhoon® Valve 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.
