How does it Work? The most common form of parallel plate interceptor used in oil facilities is the corrugated plate interceptor (CPI). This is a refinement of the PPI in that it takes up less plan area for the same particle size removal, and has the added benefit of making sediment handling easier. Figures illustrates a typical downflow CPI design and third slide shows a typical CPI pack. ...
In February 2019, SIGMADAF Clarifiers signed a collaboration agreement with the engineering company Grupo Soil to supply DAF equipment for the modernization of the wastewater treatment system at PetroPerú SA's refinery in Talara. ...

The ESI CPI is designed and engineered for oil recovery applications where energy usage and equipment costs are a determining factor. The CPI is a gravity separator where efficiency is determined by the rising velocity of the smallest particles that will be intercepted, usually greater than 50 microns. The plate pack is made of many closely spaced corrugated plates. Using Stoke’s Law, the ...
