Gravity Separation Velocity Calculation

The gravity force is commonly used in oil treating equipment to separate the water from the oil in continues phase; the water droplet tends to separate from the oil since it’s heavier than the oil. The separation speed is limited by the drag force caused by the water movement through the oil; the constant velocity …

Plate Coalescers to Improve Gravity Separation

We can use plate coalescers to improve gravity separation process, a plate coalescers can be formed as internal plates on skim tanks or vessels. The plate coalescers configurations are: parallel plate interceptors (PPI), corrugated plate interceptors (CPI), or cross-flow separators. All of these configurations depend on gravity separation. When coalescence occurs, the oil droplets will …
