The Twister Separator System offers highly effective gas dehydration and hydrocarbon dewpointing without the need of chemicals. Highest availability in combination with chemical-free operations and hardly any maintenance open the door to unmanned operation. The system comprises of the Supersonic Separator and the Hydrate Separator. Multiple Supersonic Separators operate around a single Hydrate Separator, enabling chemical-free dehydration and hydrocarbon dewpointing in one small-footprint module. Absence of emissions makes the system the best ESG-performing. Twister can be operated remotely, unmanned and completely controlled from the central control room.

Pros & Limitations
High availability
Compact and enclosed
Chemical free dehydration
Virtually no maintenance
Simple and reliable/no rotating parts
No emissions
Reduced plot space
Suitable for unmanned operations
Requires pressure drop (like other expansion cooling technologies)
Allows fully digital operation
Specification Title Specification Description
Areas of application
Onshore and Offshore gas dehydration and/or hydrocarbon dewpointing both for sweet and sour natural gas. Bulk CO2 removal from natural gas. Light Oil/Condensate stripping from natural gas.
Sustainable, long-term and environmentally sound gas processing. A risk-free alternative to conventional systems reliant on solvents, adsorption beds, chemicals and complex glycol-based regeneration processes.
High availability, no unplanned outages, and minimal HSE and environmental risk due to no chemicals and emissions.
Flexible gas processing solutions which can be scaled up to handle varying gas flow rates and gas composition.
Can be optimized for a broad variety of applications from dehydration and hydrocarbon dewpointing applications through to NGL recovery applications at higher pressure drops.
Recovers valuable hydrocarbons through highly efficient expansion cooling with no rotating parts.
Savings come from less supporting equipment, smaller footprint and platform sizes, reduced installation costs, and an end to the equipment and laboratory facilities used in chemical-based separation.
Operational costs are reduced by low maintenance requirements and the chemical free operation, plus increased revenues from higher gas production and increased condensate volumes resulting from higher production time (more than 99% uptime).
