Why choose Ejectors for Subsea Processing?
With no moving parts and no maintenance, Transvac’s Ejector technology is an ideal solution for subsea processing and FPSO applications. To ensure trouble-free operation, all Transvac subsea Ejectors are designed, manufactured and tested in-house. Operating rotating mechanical equipment can be troublesome in subsea production systems. Reciprocating Compressors and Reciprocating Pumps require huge amounts of energy, often megawatts of power. Ejector technology can operate using existing energy and therefore operating costs can be negligible. Rotating mechanical equipment also requires special designs for performing subsea.
Ejector designs change very little whether subsea or topside. In some applications, Ejector flows can be simply calculated using pressure drop data across the Ejector, thereby negating the need for flow metering instrumentation.
Materials of construction and mechanical design meet project specific piping standards and are fully qualified. Transvac also provides ceramic nozzle and diffuser components for abrasive applications which have been proven over many years on topside applications.
