Necessity of use:

... During the drilling, repairing, acidizing and testing of oil wells, usually a large amount of oil is accumulated in a pit in the ground and burned. This has several economic and environmental impacts including air and soil pollution and waste of energy and financial resources.

Crude oil is a mixture of many different kinds of organic compounds, many of which are highly toxic and cancer causing. Oil spills can have disastrous consequences for society; both economically, environmentally, and socially. As a result of these consequences oil spill accidents can initiate intense media attention and political uproar.

Oil spills penetrates into the structure of the soil and can have significant deleterious consequences for ecosystems. There are radical soil chemistry changes which can arise from the presence of many hazardous chemicals even at low concentration of the contaminant species. These changes can manifest in the alteration of metabolism of endemic microorganisms and arthropods resident in a given soil environment. The result can be virtual eradication of some of the primary food chain, which in turn could have major consequences for predator or consumer species.

Contaminated or polluted soil directly affects human health through direct contact with soil or via inhalation of soil contaminants which have vaporized; potentially greater threats are posed by the infiltration of soil contamination into groundwater aquifers used for human consumption, sometimes in areas apparently far removed from any apparent source of above ground contamination.

When oil or petroleum distillates are burned (see combustion), usually the combustion is not complete. This means that incompletely burned compounds are created in addition to just water and carbon dioxide. The other compounds are often toxic to life. They also could lead to acid rains and climate changes.


... Mobile Oil Separator (MOS) is a device for separating gas from crude oil and pumping it to the pipeline during the drilling, repairing, acidizing and testing of oil wells. As emphasized in its name, this device is mobile and it is possible to utilize it on any needed oil well and then easily transfer and install it on another one. It is composed of three units which are installed on trailers. This units are:

Unit No.1: Process Equipment Unit

... Two-phase separator, crude oil transfer pumps, Demulsifier Package which include tank and injection pumps (two phase separator can be changed to three phase separator)

Unit No.2: Utility Unit

...Gas oil storage tank, nitrogen package, diesel generator, instrument air system package (including air compressors, air dryers and air receivers).

Unit No.3: Porta cabin

...Including welfare equipment for operators and control cabin.

It is noteworthy that limits of trailers, including weight and dimensions, and their transportation in roads is one of the most important parameters in design of oil separator package, which has been completely considered by this company. This company has patent certification for MOS from Iranian Registration and Documents Organization
