Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONDITIONING FLUIDS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE CONDITIONNEMENT DE FLUIDES
Abstract
(EN)
A method of increasing the rate by which a dissimilar material separates from a fluid mixture is disclosed. The method includes the step of passing a mixture comprising a fluid containing at least one polar substance and at least one dissimilar material through a magnetically conductive conduit having magnetic energy directed along the longitudinal axis of the magnetically conductive conduit and extending through at least a portion of the mixture thereby providing a conditioned fluid medium. The conditioned fluid medium is separated into at least two distinct phases in a separation apparatus downstream of the magnetically conductive conduit, wherein the at least one dissimilar material separates from the fluid containing at least one polar substance at an increased rate as compared to a rate of separation of the at least one dissimilar material from the fluid containing at least one polar substance when the mixture is not passed through the magnetically conductive conduit.

L'invention concerne un procédé permettant d'augmenter la vitesse à laquelle un matériau de nature différente se sépare d'un mélange de fluides. Le procédé comprend l'étape consistant à introduire un mélange comprenant un fluide contenant au moins une substance polaire et au moins un matériau de nature différente dans un conduit magnétiquement conducteur ayant une énergie magnétique orientée le long de l'axe longitudinal du conduit magnétiquement conducteur et s'étendant à travers au moins une partie du mélange de fluides, ce qui permet de produire un milieu de fluide conditionné. Le milieu de fluide conditionné est séparé en au moins deux phases distinctes dans un appareil de séparation en aval du conduit magnétiquement conducteur, le ou les matériaux de nature différente se séparant du fluide contenant au moins une substance polaire à une vitesse accrue par rapport à une vitesse de séparation du ou des matériaux de nature différente du fluide contenant au moins une substance polaire lorsque le mélange n'est pas introduit dans le conduit magnétiquement conducteur.
