In oil and gas plants produced water is often stored in large tanks after treatment however, still a significant quantity of oil is separated in the tanks due to large residence time. So, large tanks in oil and gas plant often comes with oil skimmers to collect the oil from the tanks. Therefore, this application is developed to size and design the appropriate skimmer. User can also evaluate the existing skimmer design to be adequate for the need. The application allows to perform both task of sizing and evaluation of existing design.
The application consist of three most common types of skimmer designs user can select and perform calculations with;
- Horizontal cylindrical skimmer
- Horizontal rectangular API skimmers
- Vertical skimmer
The application is simple to use where user needs to provide required information in input fields and results are obtained with simple pressing calculate button.
Users are cautioned about incorrect inputs and limitations during valve sizing and guide them to achieve the correct results.
