Inlet Separation

    Separation is the process through which a two or three-phase mixture of gas, hydrocarbon liquids and/or water are split into their distinct phases. The separation process is via gravity settling of the different phases due to their differences in density and is aided by vessel design and internal devices. Once separated the individual phases exit the vessel for further processing.


Phase Separation
• Designed to induce gravity separation and allow accumulation of liquid
• Vapour area design manages maximum velocity to limit droplet carryover

Surge & Retention Time
• Optimized to ensure liquid/liquid disengagement
• Provide sufficient time for operator response to liquid level changes

• Enhance phase separation performance
• Optimized to maintain interface control

Filtration and Coalescers
• Provides additional removal for high solid and liquid loading
• Selection provides protection of downstream equipment
