Evaporator Package(Chapter 3): SAGD Oil Sands Online Training
Evaporator Water Treatment Part 3: SAGD Oil Sands Online Training
The purpose of Evaporator Water Treatment is to teach anyone in the oil & gas sector about how an Evaporator system can be an alternative to treating produced water in a Lime Softener in a SAGD facility. The core technology is mechanical vapour compression & vertical falling film evaporation. While complex, the process can be very efficient in producing high quality water.
The complete 3-part Evaporator Water Treatment fully describes how a large-scale evaporator system works; starting with a single stage evaporator vessel & compressor unit. After explaining the theory & operation, we add component stages to build an entire Evaporator-to-Concentrator progressive treatment train that produces high quality distillate water.
Completing Evaporator Water Treatment Part 3 will fill you in on:
- How the complete Evaporator system works as a unit
- How feed water, brine, and brine-blowdown flow through the Evaporators and Concentrator
- How the required sump levels and brine concentrations are maintained
- How typical shutdown actions affect the system
- How the Evaporator operation can be adjusted to meet a particular operating target
- Troubleshooting an Evaporator producing contaminated distillate water
Evaporator Water Treatment Part 3 is included in Contendo’s Fundamentals of SAGD Online Oil Sands Training Water Treatment Course.
ABOUT Contendo’s SAGD OIL SANDS ONLINE TRAINING COURSES
Contendo’s SAGD Oil Sands Online Training Courses are the only fully animated presentations of SAGD process construction & operation available.
Simply put, no one else does what Contendo has been doing for a decade; turning process drawings into process actions.
We explain the theory, then show you how it is applied using moving flows in piping, tanks & vessels.
You will see the effects of typical system shutdowns caused by out-of-range conditions, & which associated equipment is affected by the alarm conditions. For example; a low tank level tripping off several downstream pumps.
Universally accessible with an internet connection, Contendo’s SAGD-specific online training programs provide students with an in-depth understanding of one of the Oil Sands most popular & most nuanced methods of bitumen recovery. Our curriculum was written by experienced industry engineers & technicians to give you a great base of knowledge to work in oil & gas generally, and SAGD Oil Sands production specifically.
