Vertical Separator Demonstrator
Description of Vertical Separator Demonstrator
The three phase separator demonstration apparatus is a small scale vessel that performs continuous separation of a mixture of oil, air and water. It is available in horizontal and vertical orientations. The primary separation operation for crude oil occurs when the crude stream flows through a vessel of sufficient capacity to allow gravity separation of the gas, liquid hydrocarbon and water phases. This trainer includes a clear horizontal primary separator vessel. The process has manual control valves with rotameters and is intended to demonstrate oilfield separation principles with basic visual manual operation.
Function of Vertical Separator Demonstrator
This process trainer blends air, water and refined oil to emulate a crude oil stream. This fluid mixture then flows into a separator vessel fabricated of clear materials. The oil and water are recycled; the air is vented to atmosphere.
