Finepac - Your Trustworthy Partner For Used Oil Refining and Oil Water Separation Today, in the modern world we live, the ever-increasing prices of oil have made it imperative for organizations to utilize oil in a prudent manner, and refine it to restore its original contents as much as possible. This article deals withtwo major activities namely, used oil refining and oil water separation. Scroll down to explore. Finepac Structures, one of the most reliable and reputed names in the industrial circles, offers solutions on a lot of industrial concerns. Used oil refining and oil water separation are a couple of activities, Finepac facilitates with its products. In a world, wherein oil prices are constantly rising, it has become necessary for industries to come together use oil wisely, refine, re-refine used oil so as to curb the cost impact and multiply its usage. Read more to explore the process of used oil refining. What is Re-Refining of Used Oil? Oil, one of the most valuable resources on the planet, is also one of the most expensive ones. For manufacturing units that use oil in large quantities for various industrial processes, used oil re-refining and management is the need of the hour, considering the large cost factor involved in it, and the applications of re-refined oil in the automobile industry.Used oil re-refining is a process that has evolved over the years, and involves removal of all the impurities (soluble as well as insoluble), and restore the original quality of the oil, which is deemed fit for use in the automotive industry. Used oil re-refining involves the below processes. ďƒ Removal of Unwanted Water: Water is considered to be a detrimental element affecting the overall quality of the oil. Therefore, it becomes necessary to remove unwanted water that invades various oil storage areas. Water is removed through the


process of evaporation. It is further collected, treated to ensure the biological and chemical safety, and finally released.  Extraction of Lightweight Chemicals: Once done with water removal, the oil is further treated for the extraction of lightweight chemicals for reuse. It is sent to tall recovery towers, wherein light fuels and glycol are segregated and collected. Glycol, a by-product, finally undergoes processes to be used as a ready-to-use automotive product.  Fuel Stripping: Fuel stripping involves removal of heavier fuels for industrial applications. The used oil is further put through heat and vacuum process that helps in removing the mid-weight oils. Fuel, which is the byproduct resulted out of this process, is used for industrial heating.  Vacuum Distillation: This process involves the removal of the heaviest materials/ elements present in the oil. The heavy elements of materials present in the oil are further retrieved for multiple uses. Removal of the heaviest material involves a series of intricate processes. The used oil is subject to vaporization in an extreme vacuum and further condensed. Later on, different types of material are separated from the oil. This process results in a by-product-heavy oil, which has an industrial application. It is used for asphalt extenders comprised of the heaviest residues.  Hydro Treatment for Removal of the Final Impurities: Eventually, the oil is subject to treatment involving hydrogen to remove nitrogen, sulphur, heavy metals, chlorine, etc. The final step also includes color and odor correction, along with corrosion performance. Finally, the purified oil is separated by weight. What is Oil Water Separation? Water is deemed to be a threat to the overall quality and the efficiency of oil. The presence of water in oil fosters oxidation, affects the oil’s base stock, and increases foaming and the viscosity. Therefore, in order to reuse and refine oil, removing water thus becomes imperative. There are two types of separators used for oil water separation, i.e two-phase separator and three-phase separator.


A two-phase separator is particularly designed for gas and oil. Two-phase separation includes the well stream entering the separator, and further striking an inlet deflector, driving the liquid and gas downstream towards the liquid section, thereon initiating the liquid separation process. Once the retention time is over, liquid develops at the bottom of the tank. It lifts a float with the help of linkage to release the fluid. There isn’t much of a difference between a two and a three-phase separator, except for the fact that the separator has an internal inlet downcomer, transporting the fluid to the bottom for more retention and separation time. There are two types of separators. Vertical separator designed for intermediate oil-gas ratios, and the other, the horizontal one, for higher oil-gas ratios, and facilitating continuous flow well-streams. What does Finepac Offer? Finepac specializes in facilitating industry-specific products designed to cater to the dynamics of oil and gas manufacturing.We deal in manufacturing high-pressure separators in vertical as well as horizontal configurations, in various sizes and operational capacities. We understand the criticality and significance of separation of water, gas, and oil in oilfields, and therefore we empower organizations with carefully designed, efficient three-phase separators.
