A novel bench size model coalescer: dehydration efficiency of AC fields on water-in-crude-oil emulsions

Abstract

We describe herein the design of a small AC electrostatic model coalescer for investigating coalescence efficiency of water in oil emulsions. The function of the model coalescer is tested on emulsions with different water cuts. In the coalescer, coalescence takes place in a couette flow in the bulk emulsion. The electric field has a high utilization factor… (More)
