Heater Treater

Heater Treater

Heater Treater offers a reliable and cost-effective solution to heat crude and accelerate the separation of produced water and crude oil. Our Heater Treaters come with the options of mechanical separation using our high efficiency Colaescer Plate Packs or separation using electrostatic forces to meet stringent guarantees. These units are designed to process crudes ranging from Light Condensate to Heavy Opportunity Crudes.

Process Description

As the name suggests, these units have two sections as listed below:

  • Heating Section
  • Separation Section
Heating Section

In this section, crude oil enters the unit and is heated by fired tubes. Based on Head Duty we offer either U-tube or Multi-return Fired Tube design. The fuel which can be either gas, diesel, or heavy oil is burned inside the fired tubes using high efficiency burners. Our Heater Treater can be designed with Natural Draft or Forced Draft burners for efficient combustion. The heat breaks the oil-water emulsion and reduces the viscosity of crude oil. This enhances the efficacy of downstream separation section.

Separation Section

The crude from Heating Section flows to next section, separated by a baffle. As per process requirement, the separation section is offered with either a mechanical coalescer or Electrostatic grids. Crude oil and water get separated due to mechanical or electrostatic forces and leave the unit.

The unit is provided with Gas Boot to enable associated gas to get separated and released out of the unit.
