Title: SALT ANALYZER FOR CRUDE OIL
Abstract:
Embodiments of the disclosure include a salt analyzer for crude oil. The crude oil salt analyzer includes a salt concentration model that determines a salt concentration from desalting process parameters that may include a demulsifier flowrate, a crude oil temperature, a crude oil flowrate, a desalting electrostatic grids voltage, a wash water flowrate, and a disposal water flow rate. The crude oil salt analyzer may compare the salt concentration to a threshold concentration to determine if the salt concentration exceeds the threshold concentration and may perform or initiate actions based on the comparison. Methods, computer-readable media, and plant information systems using the crude oil salt analyzer are also provided.
