Along with inlet devices. Mr Shital Gandhi says: If you need to be able to add standards to the monitoring 112j, you must register as a user with your own username and password. Each segment was fitted to a linear equation in the form of Equation 7 and its regressed coefficients e and f are presented in Tables 3A and 3B for FPS and SI units, respectively.

The vane bend angles force the gas to change direction while 8t higher density liquid droplets tend to travel in a straight-line path, and impact the surface of the vane where they are collected and removed from the gas flow. Vane packs, like mesh pads, capture droplets primarily by inertial impaction.

Gas-Liquid Separators Sizing Parameter | Campbell Tip of the Month

February 11, at 8: I think there should not be the square root on the right hand side of equation 5. Gas-Liquid Separators Sizing Parameter. The maximum allowable superficial velocity or other design criteria should be considered for other type mist extractor. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be 12h. Figure 4 shows the location and function of a typical mist extractor in a vertical separator.


For the higher liquid load applications, i. Did 1j2 enjoy this post?

Access to the horizontal separator sizing is by subscription. The curves for different droplet sizes shown in Figure 2 are fitted to a 3 rd order polynomial for droplet sizes of, and microns.

We will consider both vertical and horizontal gas-liquid separators. Please note that extra delivery cost and delivery time may apply for products ordered as hardcopy, as the products must first be shipped from our suppliers overseas. The Souders-Brown method is limited in that it is based on the average droplet size, but cannot quantify the amount editikn liquid droplets exiting the gas gravity section.

Especially for sizing horizontal separators. The drag force, F Dis exerted by flow of gas and gravity force, F Gis exerted by the weight edktion droplet.

You might want to look at the applications on my website. Thanks for your reply. Table 4 provides a summary of mesh pad characteristics and performance parameters.

API Spec 12J

September 18, at 8: There are several sources that one can look up the Eeition S —values for different applications. This rate should allow all liquid droplets larger than 10 microns to settle out of the gas.


Its value depends on several factors including:.

Historically the Souders-Brown equation has been employed as it can provide reasonable results and is easy to use, but has shortcomings in terms of quantifying separator performance. For this application length is mainly doing 2 things: If editiin calculated value of K SH by Equation 4 is greater than the maximum value of 0.

March 3, at 2: September 11, at 7: September 3, at 2: In this TOTM, editioh will focus on the application of Souders-Brown approach in gas-liquid separators and present diagram, simple correlations and tables to estimate the Souders-Brown equation constant, K S the so called sizing parameter.

This specification covers minimum requirements edifion the design, fabrication, and plant testing of oil and gas separators and oil-gas-water separators that are used in the production of oil and gas, and are located at some point on the producing flow line between the wellhead and pipeline.
