Analysis of Water Jacket Furnace Air Coil Blockage
Water Jacket Furnace is a kind of indispensable equipment in the process of oil and gas field production, gathering and transportation. It is mainly responsible for the warming and energy supply of gathering and transportation system. After production, the oil of natural gas firstly enters the Water Jacket Furnace for pressure regulation, thermal insulation and then received the processing of separation, filtration, pressure regulation and metering; natural gas containing more impurities will gradually form sediment and eventually block the snakelike coil, resulting in Water Jacket Furnace heat exchange failure; with the continuous development of the oilfield construction, the application of Water Jacket Furnace continues to increase, and the blockage phenomenon gradually increases in correspondence; under the circumstance of being unable to solve the Water Jacket Furnace blockage by high pressure differential, this paper presents the operation method of blockage solution via fresh water injection for discussion.
