There are two main types of inlet diverter, baffle plates and centrifugal diverter. Baffle plate is simply a plate to change the liquid direction and velocity at rapid rate. The sudden change in direction and velocity will disengage the gas … Continue reading
A scrubber separator is actually a two-phase separator with a small liquid loading. This kind of separator is used to recover liquid from the production separator gas outlet. A scrubber is also use to catch liquids which resulted from condensation … Continue reading
In case of high gas separation, filter separator can be used to solve the problem. In the figure above you can see filter separator schematic on horizontal two-barrel design. Instead of using inlet diverter at initial separation, the fluid is … Continue reading
In case of very low liquid rate separation, two-barrel separator is commonly used to solve the problem. The basic schematic of two-barrel separator is shown in figure above. As we can see in the figure, the vessel has two separated … Continue reading
The figure above showed a typical spherical separator schematic. The spherical separator had the same working principle as vertical separator; the main difference is the existence of cylindrical shell between the inlet and outlet. This kind of separator is very … Continue reading
The figure above is a schematic diagram of two phase vertical separator. In this vertical separator configuration the fluid enters the separator through the side. The initial separation process occurs at the inlet diverter causing the liquid droplets falls down … Continue reading
There are three common type of process separator: horizontal separator, vertical separator, or spherical separator. The figure above is an example of horizontal two phase separator basic diagram. The first step separation occurs at the inlet diverter, on the inlet … Continue reading
