Three Phase Vertical Separators Sizing

{0 Comments}

As with vertical two-phase separators, a minimum diameter must be  maintained to assure adequate gas capacity. In addition, vertical threephase  separators must maintain a minimum diameter to allow the 500 micron water droplets to settle. The height of the three-phase separator is  determined from retention time considerations. Gas Capacity The gas capacity constraints provide the …

Three Phase Horizontal Separator Sizing

{0 Comments}

For sizing a horizontal three-phase separator it is necessary to specify a vessel diameter and a seam-to-seam vessel length. The gas capacity and retention time considerations establish certain acceptable combinations of diameter and length. The need to settle 500-micron water droplets from the oil establishes a maximum diameter. Gas Capacity The gas capacity constraints provide …
