TransTech produces top-quality free water knockout (FWKO) vessels for economically removing water from produced fluid streams. Primarily used when large volumes of water are present, our FWKO drums offer low velocity flow rate and an ample oil water interface area to achieve maximum free water separation.
While the degree of separation is dependent upon retention time, the density differential between fluids, presence (or absence) of slugging flow, the interfacial area available for separation as well as other factors, due to their general effectiveness at reducing water load, the use of an FWKO vessel can in some cases allow for a smaller treating vessel.
Free water knock out drums can be designed with either horizontal or vertical orientation, in various sizes and specifications including both low- and high-pressure options.
Our experienced team of engineering and fabrication professionals will deliver your free water knock out vessel to your exact specifications. We bring in-depth knowledge of FWKO vessel operating principals and decades of oil and gas processing expertise to every project, ensuring safe, reliable operation of your vessel.
TransTech Fabrication offers end-to-end delivery of your free water knock out drum including engineering design, fabrication and test, delivery and installation—within the shortest possible lead times—for seamless project execution and fast start-up.
All finished free water knock out vessels are tested and ASME certified, National Board code stamped and registered.
