(Heater Treater, Oil Treater, Emulsion Treater, Crude Treaters)

Treaters are equipment used to break up the water emulsion in the oil phase so that the oil can separate and result in a higher oil purity for sale. Depending on pressure, these come after at least 1 stage of separation and sometimes 2 stages of separation.

Meant to be ran at low pressure to allow high-end hydrocarbons to break out, treaters dump directly to the tank or in high gravity crudes to a Vapory Recovery Tower or Oil  Stabilizer. Treaters can also be operated at higher temperatures to help flash off high-end hydrocarbons to reduce RVP in storage tanks.
