Heat Exchanger (Standard Type)

A skid-mounted steam vessel containing a high pressure coil and choke to divert the well stream upstream of the separator

Product summary

The Heat Exchanger Standard is a skid-mounted steam vessel which contains a high pressure coil and choke through which the well stream can be diverted upstream of the separator.

A separate steam generator supplies a constant flow of steam in contact with the coil to raise the temperature of the well effluent to prevent hydrate formation from plugging or restricting the flow and to improve separation and burner efficiency by reducing fluid viscosity and breaking down emulsions.

Hunting provides a customised design, taking account of thermal design features, high/low pressure limits, temperature range, product mix and fluid flow capacity. Hunting’s manufacturing flexibility enables them to supply heat exchangers for a variety of volume requirements.

The temperature of the well effluent downstream of the heat exchanger is monitored through a control-valve which then varies the steam flow into the vessel to maintain a pre-set temperature.
