Hydrodynamic Analysis of the Dehydration Process in an Electrostatic Vessel - Presentation

In the crude oil sector, process engineers must deal with the problem of water content and density increase of produced oils to achieve optimum dehydration and meet quality standards. In this presentation, engineers at Grupo SSC apply an electrocoalescence model in ANSYS CFX to describe the hydrodynamic behavior of the oil dehydration process. The session also covers behavior of a separation vessel that uses electrostatic dehydration technology to process Mexican oil.
