The crude oil extracted from the well contains formation water. Static settling often fails to completely separate oil from water. At the border of the interface of these liquids a layer of hard-to-destroy emulsion is formed, which is usually discharged into oil sludge collectors.
The services we offer allow to process such hard-to-destroy emulsions and obtain commercial oil as a result. A mobile container-type unit separates hard-to-destroy oil emulsions into oil, water phase and mechanical impurities (cake) by means of centrifugation:
