Crude Oil Washing System Model 2571

Orbijet model 2571 is a Crude Oil Washing system that is designed to clean large hydrocarbon storage tanks with solvents, water, and chemistry solutions such as our proprietary microemulsion chemistries. Orbijet model 2571 has the capability to create a recirculation loop within the tank to be cleaned via the selected tank cleaning machines thus dislodging and mixing the tank bottoms to be carried away via the return pump system to our proprietary solids separation system where the fluid stream is reduced of solids to less than 300 micron.

The solids fraction is discharged to holding bins for further treatment or disposal and the aqueous phase is returned to the tank skids for continued recirculation in the tanks to be cleaned until all solids are removed from the tank. Our oil/water separation skid can be engaged for side stream polishing of the aqueous stream thus reducing the oil in water fraction for remediation of the fluid streams and recovery of the oil or microemulsion chemistries can be used for a more complete recovery of the oil and remediation of the solids. The required heat source is supplied via our boiler skid and power is supplied via our power generation skid. Tanks are inerted with our Nitrogen Gas skid. Each skid frame is uniquely designed for on land and offshore use. The majority of the system is PLC controlled from the primary pump skid and connection to other skids are via an RJ45 data highway.
