Horizontal Separator Working Principle

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 diverter liquid and vapor will be separated as the fluid enter vessel and hits the …

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 …

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 …
