Gun Barrel & Skim Tanks
The Gunbarrel is a large separation tank where retention time and chemicals are able to process the mixture of Gas, Oil, and Water injected. Product enters the inlet flume section at the top of the tank where gas is vented from the top of the flume or equalized to storage. The oil and water travel downward through a downcomer pipe and is dispersed by a spreader plate. Once the oil and water have been dispersed on the plate the oil will rise to the top and spill over the top drain. The water will settle out on the bottom and be discharged through the drain and into the water leg. The Gunbarrel is an economical solution to many production sites and salt water disposal facilities. Watkins has a wide variety of gun barrel and separation tanks to suit your production needs.
