Steam-Heat Exchanger from Schlumberger
Sunday, March 07, 2010
Steam-Heat Exchanger is a product from Schlumberger which is useful and suitable for offshore refinery operation.
It is used to raise the temperature of well effluents to prevent hydrate formation, reduce viscosity, and break down emulsions for efficient separation of oil and water. Because the steam heat exchangers virtually eliminates fire risk, they are used on offshore platforms and other work conditions where safety regulation do not permit the use of indirect fir heaters.
The fire heat exchanger requires an adequate steam supply for operation. Some rigs have sufficient heat supply, but usually a steam generator is required.
