Separation of oil, solids and water

BLABO® system offers an automated, non-man entry oil tank cleaning and oil recovery process. Mobile and modular, it is especially designed to clean large-volume above-ground oil storage tanks. Our solution is suitable for both floating and fixed roof tanks with tank very big volumes. BLABO® can also be used in tanks containing crude oil, heavy fuel oil, catalytic cracker residue, slop oil, and similar.

Separation and recovery of oil
If the oil from the bottom of the hydrocyclones matches the tank owner’s specifications, it is pumped directly to the pipeline. Should the oil need further treatment, the separation module is used. Separation of the sludge takes place simultaneously with desludging and is separated into clean oil, solids and water. BLABO® recovers close to 100 per cent of the hydrocarbons. There are two separation steps. First a liquid/solids separation takes place in the decanter, where solids are removed from the oil.

The solids are deposited in containers for disposal or treatment, if required. If the recovered oil still contains water, a further oil/water separation is performed via the high-speed separator. The clean oil is pumped to the pipeline while the water can be pumped directly to a local waste water treatment facility. Heat exchangers are used to facilitate the separation process. Regular lab tests make sure the separated oil conforms to the tank owner’s specifications.
