Normally, hydrocarbon pipeline flow is a complex multi-phase system comprised of bubbles, droplets, and particles including asphaltenes, waxes, gas hydrates, emulsions, and inorganic particles. To control separations, flow, and process efficiency analytical measurements are often applied by petroleum engineers and chemists. Yet extreme temperature and pressure conditions make offline sampling and analysis difficult and time consuming. Offline measurements can also alter or destroy multiphase components and cannot be applied to make real-time process optimization and control decisions.
On August 18 and August 19, Anjan Pandey Ph.D. of METTLER TOLEDO will present a free online seminar: Control Emulsions, Suspensions and Crystallization with Inline Particle Measurements in Dark Crude Oil. During this webinar, Anjan will discuss how to implement droplet and particle measurement technology to control emulsions, suspensions, and crystallization in dark crude oil.
This presentation will review the use of real time, in-process particle and droplet measurement tools to avoid processing problems in the following R&D and full scale production applications:
- Control asphaltene and wax precipitation in dark crude oil
- Improve oil-water and water-oil separation through in-process droplet measurements
- Visualize and inhibit gas hydrate formation to ensure consistent flow rates
- Control drilling fluid suspensions and emulsions for improved efficiency
Registration is now open for the free webinar – Control Emulsions, Suspensions and Crystallization with Inline Particle Measurements in Dark Crude Oil.
