Filtration & Separation – Separator

Separation is a process used in the field to remove well stream liquid(s) from gas components. It takes place at Gas Plants, Transmission Stations, Gas Inlets to Chemical & Petrochemical Plants, Gas Gathering Systems or Fuel Gas Turbines.


A Separator is the vessel that is used in the separation process. Separators come in two types – 2- and 3-phrase.


A 2-phase separator removes the total liquid from gas. It can be horizontal or vertical. The liquid (oil emulsion) leaves the vessel at the bottom through a level-control or dump valve. Gas leaves the vessel at the top, passing through a mist extractor to remove the small, remaining, liquid droplets in the gas.

A 3-phase separator separates well fluids into water, gas and oil. The 3-phase separator facilitates and improves phase separation with complete instrumentation that provides accurate & relevant data.
