Abstract

The high pressure overlapping flat spray atomiser are used for removing scale deposition and the blockage that normally experienced in the well bore of oil and gas production tubing. This method provides significant advantages over current scale removal methods that involve the use of chemicals or other harmful substances which are impediment to the environment and can also affect the integrity of the pipe. This paper reports on characterising the overlapping sprays using Phase-Doppler Anemometry (PDA) at various radial positions across the spray and distance downstream of the atomiser. The results also provides information on the optimum downstream distances which are required in order to achieve the highest impact force for removing the corresponding scale from the production tubing.
