EASZ-1 LOOP POWERED WATERCUT METER
|Water Cut Definition
"Watercut" is a term used in production testing. It is the ratio of water produced compared to the volume of total liquids produced.
Water cut meters are typically used in the mineral oil industry to measure the watercut of oil flowing from a well, produced oil from a separator, crude oil tansfer in pipelines and in loading tankers.
A desalter is a process unit on an oil refinery that removes salt from the crude oil. The salt is dissolved in the water in the crude oil, not in the crude oil itself. The desalting is usually the first process in crude oil refining. The salt content after the desalter is usually measured in PTB - pounds of salt per thousand barrels of crude oil. Another specification is Basic sediment and water or BS&W
The EESIFLO EASZ-1 low range units can be used in the desalting process monitoring of BS&W either in new desalter units or retrofitted to existing applications where accurate online determination of BS&W is necessary. The standard units are intrinsically safe
