Title

PROBLEMS OCCURING IN DESALTER PLANT OF CRUDE OILAND THEIR SOLUTION

Abstract

This work is about the solving of problems occurring in desalter plant of crude oil. One of the major causes of desalter upsets is grid over-load. This is can be solved by detecting the presence of emulsions building upwards before they enter the grids. Another major causes of desalter upsets is high water content crude being delivered to the desalter from the tank farm. The primary function of the desalting system is the removal of inorganic chlorides and other water-soluble compounds from crude oil. Also averaged total hydrocarbon releases to refinery sewers range from 0.5% to 0.4% of the total crude charge. Unfortunately, refiners are losing valuable feedstock to the sewer and must spend nearly $10bbl to recover and reprocess lost hydrocarbons. The desalting system is the largest contributor to wastewater; improving operating methods on this unit can reduce shutdowns and maintenance expenses. Equally important, better operating practices can decrease organic loading on the wastewater treating unit. Several case histories illustrate various source reduction methods to minimize hydrocarbon emulsion losses to sewer. The possible outcomes of these problems are very necessary for Desalter plant.

Key Words
