promote cleaner separation of oil/
water at the desalter, a demulsifying
chemical is injected into the crude
stream. The water in the crude and
the chemical are thoroughly mixed
when the crude passes through a
mixing valve. When this stream en-
ters the desalter vessel, electrical
forces from a high voltage electrical
field cause the small droplets of
water to merge onto the bottom of
the vessel. From there, the accumu-

vation. The desalting water used to
treat the crude oil prior to processing
is taken from steam condensate from
vacuum and atmospheric pipestill
distillate drums.

On August 14, a 48-hour test run
was performed on the Pipestill No. 5
desalter. Showing signs of serving
its purpose, desalting efficiency
measured as 80% of salt removed,
reaches-almost 900/,

Prior to the test, key operators of
No. 5 and 6 Pipestill units attended
a training session conducted by Ty
Banerjee of Technical Project De-
velopment Division, who designed
the system and coordinated the test.
He was assisted by Jerry Cundiff of
Howe-Baker Engineers who discussed
the mechanical aspects and electrical
system of the desalter vessel. Steve
Schultheis and Manuel Parra of Exxon
Chemical explained the application
of demulsifying chemical to increase
desalter efficiency.

Glenn Maloney of PTS, Martines

ance in conducting the test.

reconstrui e actual unidadnan pa
saca salo (desalter) na Pipestill 5 y
6. Den e process di reconstruction,
salo y otro impureza ta ser sacA for
di e azeta crudo promer cu nan
drenta equiponan di distilacion.
Pa logra esaki, awa fresco usa
den process ta ser usa atrobe pa
mezcla cue crudo pa disolve e salo,
y e awa sal aki ta ser separh for di
e crudo den e equipo pa saca salo.
Pa logra un separacion mas limpi
di azeta/awa den e "desalter' un sub-
stancia quimica ta ser inject den e
crudo. E awa den e crudo y e sub-
stancia quimica ta ser completamen-
te mezcli ora cu e crudo pasa den e
valve mezclador. Ora cu e mezcla
aki drenta e "desalter", forza elec-
trica di un carga electric di halto
voltahe ta causa cu gotanan di awa
den e crudo ta bini hunto den e bom
di e "desalter." For di eynan e awa
acumuli continuamente y automati-
camente ta ser saca, mientras cu e
azeta for di cual salo a ser sacA ta
sail for di e parti ariba di e "desalter"
y ta bai den e sistema di distilacion.
No solamente awa y salo, sino
tambe various cantidad variA di otro
contaminante manera sedimentacion,
frusto di hero, santo, salo cristalino,
y pida-pida carbon, etc. tambe ta ser

ponan di distilacion causA pa coro-
sion, formacion di "coke", tapa-

product combustible di crudo sin
salo lo result den un product di
mas halto calidad.
Den e disenjo di e proyecto
