Equilibar Regulator used in Carbonated Water Flooding for Advanced Oil Recovery Research

Back Pressure Regulator for Carbonated Water Flooding

  • carbonated water

Researchers at the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands are exploring a novel method of using Carbonated
Water Flooding to increase the amount of oil that can be recovered from sandstone reservoirs and to improve the environmental impact and safety of the oil extraction process. As part of this endeavor, they used an Equilibar® back pressure regulator that is able to withstand harsh process fluids and operate in the high pressure range while also holding pressure at low flow to practically zero flow rates.

Meeting the challenges of vacuum holding applications

Vacuum technology is commonly used to hold objects in place for processing or positioning. Vacuum table, vacuum conveyor and vacuum pick-and-place operations are examples of this type of application. In most vacuum holding applications, flow rate and pressure vary significantly during start-up and when disruptions occur in the manufacturing process. While some vacuum applications are Read More
