Title (EN) A METHOD OF SEPARATING A MIXTURE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE SÉPARATION D'UN MÉLANGE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a method of separating a mixture comprising an aqueous component, a hydrocarbon component and a surfactant component comprising the step of centrifuging the mixture for a first time period to separate the mixture. The invention also provides a method of performing a salt scan of a surfactant/oil mixture comprising: a) preparing a number of sample mixtures by mixing a hydrocarbon, a surfactant and a number of brines having different salinity and salt components; b) centrifuging each of the samples for a time period to separate the mixture into its respective phases; and c) determining the optimal salinity of the surfactant in the hydrocarbon by observing which mixture separates into three phases.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de séparation d'un mélange comprenant un composant aqueux, un composant hydrocarboné et un composant tensioactif comprenant l'étape de centrifugation du mélange pendant une première durée pour séparer le mélange. Un procédé de mise en œuvre d'un balayage du sel dans un mélange tensioactif/huile est en outre décrit, ledit procédé comprenant : a) la préparation d'un certain nombre de mélanges d'essai par mélange d'un hydrocarbure, d'un tensioactif et d'un certain nombre de saumures ayant une salinité et des composants de sels différents; b) la centrifugation de chacun des échantillons pendant une durée apte à séparer le mélange en ses phases respectives; et c) la détermination de la salinité optimale du tensioactif dans l'hydrocarbure par observation du mélange qui se sépare en trois phases.
