This useful consultant is designed to aid engineers and operators strengthen a ?feel? for choice, specification, working parameters, and trouble-shooting separators; shape an knowing of the uncertainties and assumptions inherent in working the apparatus. The objective is to aid familiarize operators with the data and instruments required to appreciate layout flaws and clear up daily operational difficulties for different types of separators. The publication is split into six components: half one and covers basics resembling: actual homes, part behaviour and calculations. half 3 via 5 is devoted to issues reminiscent of: separator development, components affecting separation, vessel operation, and separator operation concerns. half six is dedicated to the ASME codes governing wall thickness decision of vessel weight fabrication, inspection, alteration and service of separators 500 illustrations effortless to appreciate calculations equipment advisor for shielding downstream apparatus is helping decrease the lack of dear intermediate ends is helping elevate product purity

All tanks should have a pressure/vacuum valve with a flame arrestor and a gas blanket to keep a positive pressure on the system and exclude oxygen. 14 is an enlargement of a typical pressure/vacuum valve. 15 is an enlargement of a typical flame arrestor. 3 shows the savings associated with keeping a positive pressure on a tank. Oil is skimmed off the surface of the Gunbarrel or wash tank, and the water exits from the bottom through either a water leg or an interface level controller and dump valve.
1. 12. Horizontal bulk treater. 50 Gas-Liquid and Liquid-Liquid Separators Gas blanket is provided to l l ensure that there is always sufficient pressure in the treater to allow the water to flow to the water treating system without requiring a pump and excludes oxygen entry, which could cause scale, corrosion, and bacteria. 13 is an enlargement of a Gunbarrel with an internal Gas Boot. A Gunbarrel with internal gas boot is used for low to moderate flow rates (1500– 3000 bopd). Gunbarrel (wash tank) with external gas boot is used in low-pressure, large flow-rate systems (5000þ bopd).
The gas that is injected is produced with the reservoir fluid into the low-pressure system. The low-pressure separator must have sufficient gas separation capacity to handle gas lift as well as formation gas. 24 shows the effects of wellhead backpressure for a specific set of wells. A 1-psi change in well backpressure will cause between a 2- and 6-BFPD change in well deliverability. 23.
