Emulsion Pressure Drop Loop

Emulsion Pressure Drop Loop

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: EMULSEVAL

Emulsions are mixtures of normally immiscible fluids. In petroleum production process, they can naturally occur as a result of the flow conditions or be proactively created by means of additives. A multitude of factors influence emulsion phenomena and determining the optimal parameters is an arduous yet constructive task. The EMULSEVAL is a special apparatus utilized to study pipeline flow properties of water-oil emulsions over a wide scope of aqueous phase volume fractions, flow rates and temperatures. An artificially generated emulsion is subjected to a range of heat fluxes and shear rates typical of petroleum production processes. Essentially, the experimental conditions (temperature, flow rates, fluid composition) are pre-set; the pressure drop along the pipeline section is monitored and the control variables are incrementally varied to minimize pressure drop and optimize the production process.
