Coalescence of Water Droplets in Water-in-Crude Oil Emulsions

H.N. Abdurahman and R.M. Yunus

Water separated from water-in-crude oil emulsions by chemical demulsification. Coalescence rates of water droplets have been studied in the presence of chemical demulsifier (Decylamine). Droplet size was measured. Fastest coalescence rate was observed during first minute. Binary coalescence time during this period was 10 sec when 50 mg L-1 of Decylamine was added and 5 sec in the presence of 100 mg L-1 of Decylamine emulsifier. Also polyhydric alcohol demulsifiers were investigated. Results show a strong connection (correlation) between good performance (fast coalescence) and the demulsifiers.
