Tecniplant Oily Water package is designed to separate a huge amounts of oil and suspended solids from the wastewater effluents of oil refineries, petrochemical plants, chemical plants, natural gas processing plants and other industrial sources.
Basically this type of plant are composed by different type of equipment each one dedicated to a specific separation. Tecniplant has developed an Oily Water system aimed to optimize the plant configuration in order to achieve a competitive solution, suitable to make more economical the transportation and installation process and to provide benefits for the operating and maintenance activities.Based on the process requirements, Tecniplant identifies the main characteristics of the plant in terms of tank size, water and oil pumps number and size, general piping arrangement and electrical connections. A key feature for this kind of optimization is the capability to offer an easy way to transport, install and commission the system and to operate it during the service life, with consequent savings both on the Capex and Opex. To guarantee the best solution a specific effort was done to optimize the general arrangement of the package, in order to develop, although at a preliminary level, a more compact and efficient solution, which combines simplicity during the delivery phase and high reliability and efficiency during the operating life.
The main criteria for the development of this plant is to provide an integrated package, completed and commissioned as much as possible at supplier workshop, thus minimizing the on site work. This principle enhances the reliability of the system, reduces the interface problems both during engineering and fabrication stages and reduces the commissioning and hook up schedule.
