Abstract

 The Institute of Combustion Problems, in conjunction with the Kazan National Research Technological University, is carrying out research in the process of dehydration, desalination, transportation and primary processing of oil. In the course of the research, the methods used to determine the wetting and washing capacity, as well as the dispersion analysis of oil dispersed systems, were developed in the Institute. In order to change the viscosity and fractional composition of high-viscosity oils for improvement of further works, there is used an electrohydraulic action technology. It is established that the object of investigation is high-viscosity and heavy oil, is capable to form a stable commercial emulsion system in the collection system. The average size of water globules in oil is 9.8 μm and aggregate resistance is 89.3%. Experimental modeling of the universal emulsion of oil dispersion system is suitable for further study of the demulsification processes of water-oil emulsion, allowed to establish the regime conditions for dispersion and preparation of a stable water-oil emulsion. The aggregative stability (As, %) was estimated by centrifuging the water-oil emulsion under given different conditions for carrying out experimental studies, followed by the determination of the amount of water released from the oil in the process of separation of the system into two coexisting phases.
