The Emulsion Test Rig, is equipped with two identical progressive cavity pumps. They have their own reservoir with fluid, and their own flow loop. Combining these loops, makes it possible to choose what water cut the test unit shall receive.
Valves and other restrictions can be mounted in parallel to examine their effect on separation.
There is also a possibility to run this rig as a produced water application.
The fluid passes the test unit, and goes through a batch separator. Here the separation performance is measured and analyzed.
Pressure drop, oil and water flow rates and temperature are monitored trough a PC data logging interface.
- Flow rate: 0 – 2,2 m3/h
- Pressure: 0 – 20 bar
- Fluid: Salt water and crude oil
- Fluid temperature 20-70°C
- WC: 0 – 100 %
