Benefits of CPC Packs™ in New Applications:
Improved Separation Efficiency
Higher Safety Margin
Lower Operating Cost
CPC PacksTM can be designed for counter-current or cross flow treatment systems. In either design, droplet migration is enhanced since it only has to rise an inch or two, not several feet. Oil droplets, because of their lower density, rise to the bottom side of the coalescer plate while large diameter solids fall to the top of the plate below. Since the impurities travel perpendicular to the bulk flow, separation of the immiscible liquids continues as the bulk fluid travels though the coalescer pack. Depending on the application, one or more CPC Packs™ may be necessary to achieve the degree of separation required.
Not only have CPC Packs™ been successful in oily water separators, they have been used extensively in three-phase production separators in many locations such as the Gulf of Mexico and the Middle East. In bulk oil/water separation, VME's coalescer packs increased water removal 1500% over the original configuration in one application1. In other cases, VME's proprietary internals improved separator efficiencies and decreased demulsifier chemical consumption. Used in new applications, coalescer packs can decrease the size of gravity separators thereby decreasing capital expense and saving valuable plot space.
Since VME Fabricators custom designs all of our products, we can manufacture a CPC Pack™ to fit into existing production separators, CPI separators, API separators, or skimmer vessels. Using VME's proprietary design software, our experienced engineers can also provide process support in designing new water treatment facilities or separation systems.
CPC Pack™ can be fabricated from materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP) polypropylene, or other material depending upon your specific application. Let VME Fabricators assist you with your next liquid-liquid separation problem.
VME's custom designed process internals are engineered and fabricated to minimize downtime in retrofit projects. Is foam generation expected to be a problem? Let VME help solve you next foaming problem using proven foam-breaking internals.
