RESOURCES FOR THE PETROLEUM & REFINING INDUSTRY

  • Cooling Tower Filtration For Oil And Gas Company

    Ambient dust from construction and from the environment was contaminating the campus cooling tower system resulting in contamination buildup in the cooling tower equipment. This required significant labor hours to clean and frequent blowdown, resulting in higher water usage than was desired.

  • 24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® Heavy-Duty Inline Processor

    This 24″ PIPELINE DELUMPER® was design to handle 84,000 lbs/hr of polypropylene for a major petro-chemical company. The unit features 24 inch inlet and outlet flanges, stainless steel construction and a 50 HP motor to handle oversized agglomerates of polypropylene. The unit de-agglomerates troublesome scale and lumps that can cause operational difficulties for a petro-chemical plant. Reliability is critical as the unit is to be installed extremely high up in a relatively inaccessable area.

  • Validating Your Ballast Water Management System

    Bio-UV, a manufacturer of ballast water management systems (BWMS) that utilize UV disinfection, was looking for a reliable and accurate indicative analysis to validate the installation of their BWMS system during commissioning. Read the full case study to learn more.

  • Guidelines For Biocide Performance Assessment Using 2nd Generation ATP

    The following are guidelines for execution of biocide performance studies (or ‘kill studies’) on industrial process samples such as oilfield process waters, pulp and paper process waters, metalworking samples, fuels and fuel-associated waters. These guidelines have been generated to leverage the unique features of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) monitoring test kits from LuminUltra Technologies Ltd. which include provisions to minimize interferences from various sources including suspended particles, organic molecules, heavy metals, dissolved solids, residual biocides and extra-cellular ATP.

  • Crusher Takes Its Lumps, Minimizes Elbow Grease

    CCP, Inc. in West Paterson, N.J. makes over 1,000 product formulations under private labels for the cosmetics industry, using materials such as persulfates, alkali silicates, phosphates, sodium chloride, and magnesium chloride.

  • New Technology Makes Wastewater From Oilsands Safer For Fish

    In the northeastern corner of Alberta, nestled among the expanses of forests and wetlands, lies a major freshwater dilemma that Canada is currently facing. The reuse of water for oil extraction causes tailings ponds to accumulate higher and higher concentrations of harmful contaminants. As such, the water in these tailings ponds is dangerous, and often lethal, to birds, fish, frogs, and plants.

  • Submersible Pumps Sales Soar On Back Of Digitization And New Initiatives On Wastewater Treatment

    The global submersible pumps market size will expand 1.5X in the coming decade. Submersible pumps are emerging as the preferred pumping technology across various end-uses, including wastewater management and oil & gas manufacturing. Submersible pumps are considered ideal for applications involving highly viscous fluid that require proper elimination of vapor cavities.

  • Refinery Treats Groundwater Contamination While Saving Precious Facility Space

    A large, Midwestern oil refinery installed two identical, 110’ diameter S&L Model R OXIGEST® treatment systems to solve a groundwater treatment problem on-site. Each plant incorporates aeration, clarification, and effluent holding, treating peak flows of 7.2 MGD combined; 4.3 MGD in each plant.

  • Water Scarcity In Texas: Rushing Ahead Of Science Could Scuttle Solutions

    Water scarcity is a challenge facing many Texas communities, and it’s encouraging to see how many state leaders are proactively exploring solutions to our growing water needs. This has brought the oil and gas industry and the massive volumes of water it uses and produces each year into the conversation.

  • Doublethink In The Desert: The Myth Of Recycling In The Permian Basin

    Everyone is familiar with the water cut statistics: three to seven barrels of produced water emerge from the ground per barrel of oil. This oft-cited statistic is useful to appreciate the scale of the volumes of water produced in the Permian Basin. However, it does not tell the whole story.

INDUSTRIAL WATER & WASTEWATER TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

  • Offshore Platform Fire Safety Sprinkler System Depends On Liquid Flow Assurance Switch

    Offshore platforms around the globe are essential to the production of oil/gas and the global energy supply chain, but they represent a daily hazardous operating environment to the employees that work there 24-x-7. The potential dangers range from a mix of toxic and combustible gases, including, but not limited to, deadly hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to explosive methane (CH4), and other mixed hydrocarbon gases that are easily flammable.

  • Thermal Flare Gas Flow Meter Solves Measurement Challenges On FPSO Vessels

    The accurate measurement and disposal of flare gases aboard floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels is essential to manage these potentially hazardous combustible, flammable and toxic gases. Accurate measurement of these waste gases allows them to be processed efficiently and effectively to protect people and equipment aboard the vessel. Measuring of flare gas is also most often a strict regulatory requirement, as it can form the basis for payment of environmental taxes, climate quotas, etc.

  • The Supreme Roller Mill - Durable, Versatile & Dependable

    The Supreme Roll Mills provide dependable size reduction of a wide variety of solids. They utilize two cylindrical rollers to fracture the material with an efficient, once-through milling action. These units can produce output sizes from 4-70 mesh and produce output in an extremely narrow size range and do so without degradation of the material. These results are impossible to accomplish with any other size reduction technology. The Rolls are available in smooth or corrugated roll configurations in order to meet exacting output size and consistency requirements.

  • DEFINER® KM

    DEFINER® KM Knife Mills are high performance processors that quickly and efficiently reduce cannabis and hemp to desired output size. They employ high shear knives that accurately cut solids to desired output size with a shear action without overgrind or excessive fines. DEFINER knife mills deliver more consistent output while maintaining the product integrity.

  • DEFINER® DF

    The DEFINER® DF2000 is an advanced lab style rotary knife mill designed to meet the stringent demands of the pharmaceutical, hemp, herb, cannabis, and food industries. The DEFINER's precise cutting action, unparalleled simplicity and ease of maintenance make the DEFINER truly unique and effective.
