• Vertical Heater Treaters

    Phase separators effectively separate and remove free water from the well stream, but emulsified water requires the application of heat and demulsifying chemicals for removal. Our field-proven, Vertical Heater Treaters effectively process inlet well fluids and break those oil/water emulsions while separating oil, gas, and water.



    How it Works:
    Well fluids enter the top section of the separator where an inlet diverter deflicts the fluid to the treater shell. Free gas and solution gas is released from the liquid and exits the top of the separator. Oil, water and emulsion flow through the downcomer pipe beneath the firebox. The heat breaks the emulsion and water is released and settles to the bottom of the treater where it is discharged to the water storage tank. The treated oil rises and exits the treater at the top of the oil settling section to the oil storage tank.
