Two Phase Horizontal Separators Sizing

For sizing a horizontal separator it is necessary to choose a seam-toseam  vessel length and a diameter. This choice must satisfy the conditions  for gas capacity that allow the liquid drops to fall from the gas to the liquid volume as the gas traverses the effective length of the vessel. It must also  provide sufficient …

Figure 5-3 shows an alternate configuration known as a “bucket and weir” design. This design eliminates the need for a liquid interface controller. Both the oil and water flow over weirs where level control is accomplished by a simple displacer float. The oil overflows the oil weir into an oil bucket where its level is …

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 …
