Defoaming Plates Separator

Foam at the interface may occur when gas bubbles are liberated from the liquid. This foam can be stabilized with the addition of chemicals at the inlet. Many times a more effective solution is to force the foam to pass through a series of inclined parallel plates or tubes as shown in Figure 4-8 so …

Separator Inlet Diverters

There are many types of inlet diverters. Two main types are baffle plates (shown in Figure 4-6) and centrifugal diverters (shown in Figure 4-7). A baffle plate can be a spherical dish, flat plate, angle iron, cone, or just about anything that will accomplish a rapid change in direction and velocity of the fluids and …

Scrubbers Separator

{0 Comments}

A scrubber is a two-phase separator that is designed to recover liquids carried over from the gas outlets of production separators or to catch liquids condensed due to cooling or pressure drops. Liquid loading in a scrubber is much lower than that in a separator. Typical applications include: upstream of mechanical equipment such as compressors …

Double Barrel and Filter Separator

Cyclone separators are designed to operate by centrifugal force. These designs are best suited for fairly clean gas streams. The swirling action of the gas stream as it enters the scrubber separates the droplets and dust from the gas stream by centrifugal force. Although such designs can result in significantly smaller sizes, they are not …

Horizontal Two Phase Separator Basic Design

Separators are designed in either horizontal, vertical, or spherical configurations. Figure 4-1 is a schematic of a horizontal separator. The initial gross separation of liquid and vapor occurs at the inlet diverter.  The fluid enters the separator and hits an inlet diverter causing a sudden change in momentum.  The force of gravity causes the liquid …

Two Phase Oil and Gas Separation

{0 Comments}

Produced wellhead fluids are complex mixtures of different compounds of hydrogen and carbon, all with different densities, vapor pressures, and other physical characteristics. As a well stream flows from the hot, high-pressure petroleum reservoir, it experiences pressure and temperature reductions. Gases evolve from the liquids and the well streamchanges in character.
