Oily Sludge Management

E T C > Oily Sludge Management

ETC provides recovery of hydrocarbons from crude oil sludge which is then blended with fresh crude resulting in huge savings and reduction of generated wastes.


Generally oil sludge can be classified into three main groups, the first type of sludge results from soil contamination during production activity, or in emergency cases, the second type of bottom sludge is formed due to sediment of oil spills to the bottom of water basins, while the third type, tank sludge is formed during storage and transportation of oil products in reservoirs of various designs.

Methods of sludge processing can vary according to sludge physicomechanical characteristics. The sludge treatment units come in two modules, the first containing the pre-treatment unit and the second containing the centrifuge and other equipment depending upon the model.
