Compact/Inline Separation of Phases
Enhanced gravity separation for compact process plants
A static swirl element induces a spin on the incoming fluid stream, resulting in the formation of a light phase core (e.g. gas or oil) surrounded by the heavier phase. The core is extracted through a separate outlet nozzle. Flow split control between the 2 outlets allows optimisation of the purity of the separated phases. This ensures that a minimum amount of gas remains in the liquid phase, or vice versa, – thus minimizing gas carry-under or liquid carry-over – or a minimum amount of oil remains in the water phase, or vice versa. Likewise, solids may be extracted from a multiphase gas/liquid feedstream.
