This course reviews the methods of removing oil from oil-in-water mixtures.
Different modes of oil presence in water will be studied, and main unit operations for deoiling, such as API separators, Skim Tanks, Floatation methods (Dissolved Gas Floatation, Dispersed Gas Floatation), Oil Removal Filters, Centrifuges, Hydrocyclones, Coalescers, and Demulsification methods will be discussed. Additionally, several case studies are available for further study.
1. Oil In Water: Different modes of existence
2. Emulsions: Effective parameters
3. Oil In Water Parameters: TPH, FOG, etc, & Oil Assay
4. Free Oil Removal Methods: Creaming, Filtration
5. Applicability, Design Basis, Approximate Operation Performance, and Different types of:
8. Deoiling Comparison Tables
9. Case Studies
The De-oiling: Oil Removal from Water course is designed for Process Engineers, Mechanical and Material Engineers, Operation Leads, Project Managers and Planners who are involved in De-oiling design and operation.
Moe Toghraei MSc. PEng., has more than 25 years’ experience in water treatment and deoiling of oil industries and more than 10 years’ as trainer.
He worked in process engineering roles up to lead positions (leading up to 15 process engineers), technical support and consultant. He performed design, troubleshooting, and optimization of deoiling units from 10 years ago in Alberta, Canada. He is currently providing consultation services.
He provides training courses in companies and also on-line courses with University of Kansas and University of Dalhousie. He has trained more than 500 professionals from more than 25 companies in different technical subjects. He also developed some courses for colleges.
Over the last few years Moe has published several articles in “Hydrocarbon Processing magazine” and “Chemical Engineering Magazine”.
Moe has a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (1990) and MSc in Environmental Engineering (1998). He is also a Licensed Professional Engineer.
