The Aker Solutions CEC™ is an innovative concept to achieving high levels of coalescence efficiency. The CEC™ coalescence and the settling processes take place in two separate units, thus making process more effective, compact and easier to maintain.
The CEC™ technology is highly suited for use in applications where size, weight and utility consumption are constraints.
The CEC™ has a simple and robust design and consists of circular concentric flow-through chambers for the application of electrostatic forces. These flow-paths are optimised to give the best possible application of electrostatic forces for efficient coalescence.
The complete CEC™ separation system consists of a CEC™ unit followed by a downstream oil/water separator. The downstream oil/water separator requires few internals to achieve increased capacity and enhanced performance.
The advantage of separating coalescence and separation into two different sections is that the CEC™ unit can be retrofitted easily upstream of an existing gravity separator to enhance the performance without much modification to the separation train.
The CEC™ technology is highly suited for use in applications where size, weight and utility consumption are constraints. It is a small lightweight flow-through system that greatly enhances the separation performance of the downstream separation equipment. Implementation of this process will ensure the enhanced oil quality.
Aker Solutions' Process Systems division provides services in the nature of installation of separators, treatment of petroleum, gas, sand, water, separation of petroleum, and technical consultation in engineering.
