Heater Treater in Oil and Gas: A Video Overview

An oil and gas heater treater uses heat to accelerate the separation of produced fluid. In this video, we will walk through separation, the different types of treaters producers use, and how pneumatic and mechanical controllers provide process control on these vessels. You will find heater treaters separating crude oil primarily in the upstream sector

What is a Pneumatic Temperature Controller?

Oil and gas producers use a Pneumatic Temperature Controller to control a set temperature in production vessels.  Its most common use is in indirect heaters, emulsion treaters, rebillers, steam generators, heat exchangers, cooler shutter controls, and salt bath heaters. How Does It Work? Pneumatic Temperature Controllers have a stainless tube to monitor changing temperatures. This tube connects
