Hydrocyclone technology allows for the separation of oil and water within a smaller footprint and more efficiently than alternative systems. Hydocyclones are especially suited for use on platforms and rigs, as they are impervious to the effects of motion, and are comprised of no moving parts.
Ovivo® SpinTM LLH de-oiling hydrocyclones are very effective in removing dispersed oil. They are excellent coalescing devices and are effective primary treating equipment. When compared to corrugated plate interceptors (CPI) and skimmers, Ovivo Spin LLH systems offer comparable capacity but higher separation efficiency, in a more compact footprint. Ovivo's de-oiling hydrocyclones are often followed by induced gas flotation (IGF) units for secondary treatment on offshore installations.
