Chemical feed skids provide reliable and consistent distribution of chemicals into processes. If properly designed Chemical feed skids possess the capability of increasing system efficiency by maximizing the operating cost and decreasing chemical expenses. Available in a myriad of options, U.S. Water’s chemical feed skids can be customized to fit the specific needs of each facility’s needs and requirements.
Factors that need to consider by chemical skid facilities and manufacturers
There are a variety of factors that both chemical skid facilities and Chemical Injection Skid Manufacturer In UAE need to consider when selecting chemicals feed skids for the gas and oil industry. Because of the demanding surroundings, delivering chemical in a secure and efficient manner can be a challenge. Chemical feed skids have to be constructed with the right devices and components to assure dependable operation and the integrity of the system.
Pipelines as well as other process related treatment programs are typically regarded as classified as a Classified Area and, as such, chemicals feed systems needs to conform to the specific classifications established by the regulatory bodies of industry like the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), American Petroleum Institute (API) as well as The International Fire Code as well as Underwriter Laboratories (UL). The classification assigned to this area is an indication of the risk for explosion or fire. Under normal circumstances there is the least chance of explosive mixtures and this area will be classified under Class I Division 2 Group D. There is sometimes an increased chance of explosive mixture , and the zone is designated as Class I Division 1 Group D. The classification requirements decide the electrical system’s power source junction box, electric control panels. The plant should collaborate with an engineering company to ensure that the system they design conforms to all classifications as the chemical systems that feed them are subjected to third inspectors from a third party.
Chemical pumps offer constant chemical delivery, and the array of pumps available on market can seem overwhelming. The selection of a pump must be determined by the feed rate desired as well as dosage pressure, the chemical compatibility, and specific gravity/viscosity. Pumps can be delivered in a loose form to be installed by other people or skid-mounted along with the rest of the chemicals feed program’s accessories piped into.
Frequently used equipment and accessories for the oil and gas industry
There are many equipment and accessory combinations that are available to make the most practical and effective system. Below you will find the most frequently used equipment and accessories for the oil & gas engineering company.
- Strainer: Removes sediments and other large particles that could result in damage to your pump. Strainers are highly recommended since the point of injection has a more refined point.
- Pressure Relief Valves A largely unutilized security measure to relieve built-up pressure in the event that the outlet valve for the pump become closed in the event of a line blockage or any other component fail , leading to pressure build-up at an outlet on the pump.
- The Back Pressure Valve Helps prevent accidental siphoning of chemical.
- Injection Configuration: Injection quills and Atomizers connect to the feed systems for chemical with the treatment system and are crucial in getting the treatment in through the pipe. Atomizers are used in gas streams that feed into them since they disperse the product. Injection quills are commonly used for feeding liquid streams.
- Calibration column: A device to determine the speed at which liquid is flowing to prevent harming the system. A precise measurement of the flow rate helps prevent chemical overfeed or underfeed.
- Pressure gauge: An device to test the performance of the pump and design.
- A Flow Verification sensor: Rarely utilized, but it provides an automated method to confirm the that the feed rate is actually being fed.
- Pulsation Dampener: Facilitates an even flow of water by decreasing “pulses” and strain on the piping and system components due to fluctuations in pressure.
- Steel Pipe Materials: Stainless Steel is advised for non-water treatment chemicals.
