Washing tanks operate with half a part of water and the other part is covered by oil, the crude oil is fed through the lower part by means of distributors, the water that comes with the oil gets in contact with the water inside the container so that the coalescence of the water is carried out, and from the top, there is the oil outlet. For greater water-oil separation efficiency, chemicals that break the emulsion are used.
Golf-2 .- is a product that is able to increase the efficiency of separation of water and oil, instead, attack simple emulsions of crude oil in water or raw water.
Our product attacks in the same way, more complex emulsions product of the use of crude improvers, dispersants, clarifiers, corrosion inhibitors, among others no less important.
The retention times in the tank yards depend on the separation efficiency of the process to provide a stream of crude as marketing, this process can regularly take 7 to 10 days per pothole.
Golf-2 is a product that can decrease the retention times in the tank yards to three days in the longest time, the volume used to improve the separation, to avoid the formation of precipitates in the walls of the tanks can be recovered as volume of crude improved after treatment.
The volumes of crude coming from production processes by steam injection in most cases end up in a tank yard.
The loss of temperature of the crude oil creates ideal conditions for the formation of hydrates, the presipitation of paraffins and asphaltenes as well as the increase in the viscosity of the crude oil.
Tank heating systems lose efficiency due to the formation of asphaltene flakes that act as an insulating barrier that prevents the exchange of heat between the coils and the tank oil.
The viscosity reducing product developed by TDWS is the top product in the line of demulsifiers that improves the separation process and, in return, dilutes the scale on the walls of the tank; with the ability to reduce the viscosity of crude oil and guarantee the flow and separation of crude oil.
The process of building tank farms is part of our work routine. Our clients around the world have relied on our skills to develop and plan the tank and storage yards in their properties.
Engineering, design, modeling and simulation of processes are the stages to be considered by our designed experts to guarantee the highest manufacturing standards.
The process of cleaning a storage tank regularly demands that the tank be removed from service, opening a manhole, performing visual inspection, fresh air supply, self-contained equipment, cleaning crew, hazardous waste management, cleaning with water under pressure, inertizers among others.
The offer of associated risk on the part of the owner is enormous and the responsibilities are a consequence of work in confined spaces and dangerous atmospheres.
TDWS has developed a method that, through a chemical, can be projected on the walls of the tank and, applying a chemical reaction, an optimal cleaning is reached. Besides, TDWS makes a combination with a product that allows to transform hazardous waste in sediment of easy handling.
Personnel entry is not required, it is not necessary to open a window for personnel, the use of high technology equipment is not required, the risk to personnel decreases.
3d modeling of a process plant or tank yard is the first step in determining the effective disposition of crude handling units.
Our design engineers have specialized in capturing in a dynamic model the conjuncion of a huge group of engineering disciplines such as industrial, petroleum, petrochemical, mechanical, industrial and civil; that provides the client with a virtual image prior to the disposition of equipment and components, which optimize the process of handling a raw material to be transformed into one or several derivatives.
