Steam Generators for Enhanced Oil Recovery
Steam generators for recovering the highest possible percentage of Original Oil In Place (OOIP) is an urgent concern in today’s political environment — one for which you need the most advanced control system available. At ACES we’ve combined 45 years experience with control systems and 10 with steam generators, and applied them to the challenges of the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) industry.
ACES is ISO 9001:2015 Certified in Design, Development, Manufacture, Installation, and Technical Support on a World-Wide basis for Steam Generation Technologies and Products for the Oilfield Industry.
With our ASME S, National Bord Inspection Code, and NB-415 certifications we can build and refurbish Oilfield Steam Generators. Currently we have a new 27 MMBTU under construction and a used 50 in reman which will have any entirely new convection and control system.
Introducing the FlexSteam Control System
Whether your generator is 5 or 50 years old, whether you’re outputting 5,000 or 100,000 pounds of steam per hour, we’ve designed a steam generator control system that automates the entire process and enables you to predict your steam discharge quality within very fine tolerances.
Standardized yet Adaptable
With FlexSteam we’ve standardized our control system software to fit any sized generator — and yet there’s plenty of room for customization: Choose to burn natural gas, propane, oil or diesel fuel. Specify your generator size and other variables such as water flow and steam pressure. The FlexSteam Control System offers the quick installation and simple setup you need, while still giving you all the options you want.
Some of our clients with older generators are amazed at the automation achieved when we install FlexSteam on their machines. “You mash the button and walk away,” said one happy customer, who was accustomed to fiddling with buttons and levers to keep his generators on track. “I can get in my truck and leave, and when I come back it’s still running.” This automation system also has options for emissions tracking and control.
Reduce Fuel Consumption, Increase ROI
It’s not uncommon for our customers to see a 20% increase in fuel-to-steam efficiency after installing FlexSteam. Thanks to higher steam quality, lower fuel costs, emissions control, automation, and ease of use, FlexSteam can pay for itself in as little as a year or two.
