With the current cycle of low crude oil prices, many in the oil and gas industry are looking at new technology that will improve profits, and lower costs while at the same time protecting the environment with less emissions and spills. Any process that separates or blends a liquid entrained gas or air is a major issue that has to be dealt with. If it’s not managed, the entrained gas or air in a liquid adds volume and the value of the liquid is determined on that volume.
So, how do you remove unwanted volume from your process?
There’s a number of ways to do this – you could install a vent valve to identify a large percentage of the unwanted gas you have flowing through your pipe or, one of the more popular options is to simply estimate and adjust accordingly. The problem with both of these solutions is that they don’t measure all of the unwanted gas present. One solution that’s recently emerged is the gas void fraction eliminator.
Gas void fraction eliminators remove all of the unwanted volume – ensuring you that you are only measuring and therefor paying for the liquid and not the air.
How do you choose the right one for your set-up?
When choosing a gas eliminator, it’s always easy to go with a check list!
