Chemical Distribution Systems

Chemical distribution systems are commonly used in production facilities in the oil and gas industry. They prevent or mitigate a wide range of problems that might negatively affect the production flow and/or process completion.
Frames designs, manufactures and supplies custom-built distribution systems for a wide range of process applications, including production processes, (produced) water treatment and hydrate control in pipelines and wells.

Chemical injection and distribution

Injection Rate Control Devices (IRCD) and flow control valves

Chemical distribution systems are used to convey chemicals over multiple injection points and are used for production, (produced) water treatment, as well as hydrate control chemicals. A chemical distribution system generally consists of an injection rate control device (IRCD), isolation valves, a check valve, and a flow meter. IRCD’s can be locally or remotely adjusted for optimized control.

For high-flow applications, flow control valves are used in combination with flow meter feedback to continually adjust the valve orifice, resulting in pressure-independent flow control.
Accurate flow control and metering systems prevent over-injection or under-injection of chemicals, resulting in decreased operational costs. Other advantages are reduced plot space requirements and weight reduction compared to a configuration with dedicated pump heads for each injection point.
