Water from oil and gas production facilities often requires a number of stages to effectively remove free oil and solids. Therefore, Process Group offers a range of Corrugated Plate Interceptor (CPI) Units, which are particularly suited to slug and/or intermittent flow and can be designed for either live or degassed process fluids.
Process Group CPI Units are designed to remove free oil and suspended solids from water as a primary stage of water treatment and utilise plate packs as the main separation device. The plate packs are designed with specific spacing and alignment to allow solids to settle and fall to the bottom while simultaneously allowing oil drops to rise and coalesce, thereby reducing the oil and solids loading from the downstream water treatment train and smoothing out flow slugging.
The advantages of Process Group's range of CPI Units include:
- Low operating and maintenance cost
- Proven robust and reliable design
- Pressurised or non-pressurised design
- Automated controls for unmanned operation
