Title
(EN) FLOW-THROUGH CAVITATION-ASSISTED RAPID MODIFICATION OF CRUDE OIL
(FR) MODIFICATION RAPIDE EN FLUX CONTINU D’HUILE BRUTE À L’AIDE DE LA CAVITATION
Abstract
(EN)
A device and method are provided for manipulating petroleum, non-conventional oil and other viscous complex fluids made of hydrocarbons that comprise enforcement of fluid in a multi-stage flow-through hydrodynamic cavitational reactor, subjecting said fluids to a controlled cavitation and continuing the application of such cavitation for a period of time sufficient for obtaining desired changes in physical properties and/or chemical composition and generating the upgraded products. The method includes alteration of chemical bonds, induction of interactions of components, changes in composition, heterogeneity and rheological characteristics in order to facilitate handling, improve yields of distillate fuels and optimize other properties.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé destinés à manipuler du pétrole, de l’huile non traditionnelle et d’autres fluides complexes visqueux composés d’hydrocarbures, qui comprennent l’introduction du fluide dans un réacteur hydrodynamique à cavitation en flux continu à plusieurs étages, l’application desdits fluides à une cavitation contrôlée et le maintien de l’application d'une telle cavitation pendant un intervalle de temps suffisant pour obtenir des changements souhaités des propriétés physiques et/ou de la composition chimique, et l’obtention des produits améliorés. Le procédé comprend l’altération des liaisons chimiques, l’induction d’interactions entre composants, des changements de composition, d’hétérogénéité et des caractéristiques rhéologiques, afin de faciliter la manipulation, d’améliorer les rendements en carburants distillés et d’optimiser d’autres propriétés.
