Flame Arrestor Schematic and Installation

The tube inside flame arrestor will prevent a vent flame traveling back into the tank as we can see in the figure above. The common problem with flame arrestor is they can be plugged easily with paraffin, so it must be installed in a position where inspection and maintenance can be done. To prevent the […]

Wire Mesh Mist Extractor

Wire mesh mist extractor is made of stainless steel wire which form a woven mats wrapped into cylinder pack. The working principle is simple, liquid droplet will hit the mat and coalesce. Gas velocity is the main factor to achieve the effectiveness, so the velocity has to be at proper range. If the speed is […]

Baffle Plates Inlet Diverter

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 from the liquid. The basic design of the baffles is to count the structural support […]

Scrubber Separator Usage

{0 Comments}

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 effect. Scrubber separator is typically used to protect equipment from free liquid. A compressor may […]

Filter Separator To Solve High Gas Problems

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 flown through filter tubes. As the gas flow through the tubes the liquid will form […]

Spherical Separator Working Principle

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 efficient in term of working pressure but they have limited surge capability and it’s difficult […]

Vertical Separator Working Principle

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 to the collection section. The liquid will flow down to the outlet; the entrained gas […]
