Study of Sand Particle Separation by Cyclone Separator
Tech27 Systems Ltd was asked to complete an investigation to find the separation efficiency of a single hydrocyclone that is inside the desander vessel that separates sand & silt from the drilling fluids, on a rig for a drilling contractor in the North Sea.
Tech27 Systems successfully concluded that:
Sand particles with higher diameter are more likely to be separated from the flow, while finer particles will remain with the flow.
At the start (till 0.2s), there are some sand particles flowing with the overflow but the sand particles tend to move downwards as the flow develops.
Total pressure drop of 380 kPa happens from the inlet overflow outlet.
Tech27 Systems Ltd was asked to complete a full project planning and commissioning visualisation for a leading environmental services company. The goal was to create a visual aid of the overall project process to provide a greater understanding for all parties from vendor to duty holder, improving project team productivity.
Tech27 Systems Ltd successfully modelled a 3D animation detailing the complete project planning & commission stages which aided the overall productivity and process of the project by:
Reducing the number and types of consequences from damages, injuries and outages.
Improve project team productivity and resource allocation.
Communicate process flow efficiently and accurately.
Visualise construction plans prior to execution.
Improve team communication.
Roles and responsibilities allocation.
Accelerate logistics, lift plans and construction.
Greater understanding between all parties, from vendor to duty holder.
