‘Mini Plant’ Large Scale Three Phase Separator

FunctionThe primary separation operation for crude oil occurs when the crude stream flows through a vessel of sufficient capacity to allow gravitational separation of the gas, liquid hydrocarbon and water phases. This process trainer blends air, water and refined oil to emulate a crude oil stream. This fluid mixture then flows into a horizontal separator vessel fabricated of clear PVC. Gas flow passes through a secondary vertical 2-phase separator, or knock-out ports to remove any further liquids from the gas stream. The separator is equipped with industry-typical process instrumentation. The entire trainer is controlled from a distributed control system (DCS).
