Global Three-Phase Separator Market in Oil and Gas Industry 2016-2020

Crude oil is of two types: sweet crude oil and sour crude oil. Sweet crude is also referred to as light crude while sour crude is referred to as heavy crude. Based on composition, sweet or sour crude oil needs to be refined using different methods and technologies. At the time of production, crude oil stream consists of three-phase s, solid, liquid, and gas. For transportation of crude oil, it is necessary to separate these phases. One technology that provides early stage separation is a three-phase separator. This separator enables refiners to go directly for refining as it provides early stage separation of the crude oil. A three-phase separator consists of a safety valve, weir, level controller, and a heat exchanger. A safety valve provides protection against undesirable pressure ......

Global Biomass Boiler Market 2016-2020

A biomass boiler is used to generate heat or power from biomass, with less impact on the environment than conventional fuel. Heating and cooling account for almost half of the world's energy consumption. This requirement is fulfilled using conventional sources such as electricity, which is generated from fossil fuels. Power generation from fossil fuels results in the emission of a large amount of CO2, negatively affecting the environment. Biomass has proven to be highly efficient in controlling carbon emissions; it produces 60%-80% less carbon emissions compared to conventional fuels. Many countries globally are, therefore, encouraging the use of biomass by providing incentives and grants. In the UK, the government provides incentives to consumers who use biomass for heating.
