Exterran's Skimmer provides long residence time with mechanical coalescing devices to enhance separation of small amounts of oil from the produced water.

Key Benefits

  • Fully assembled
  • Manways for quick internal access
  • Easy installation

How it Works

The liquid stream enters the vessel through an inlet device then passes through a coalescing plate pack where the oil particles are grown to enhance removal from the water phase. Oil is removed via a pump and the water is removed through a level controlled device.
