Vertical type, horizontal type and spherical type structure are available shapes for making liquid gas separator from various manufacturers. Most manufactures are produce vertical type and horizontal type liquid gas separator.  Two more structure type available under the horizontal type, which is single tube and double tube.  Each type of separator has specific advantages and limitations. The factors choosing separator type is based on several factors including characteristics of production system to be treated, floor space availability at the facility site, transportation and cost.


Vertical liquid gas separator

The inlet diverter baffle is a centrifugal inlet device making the incoming stream spin around. This action forces the liquid droplets to stay together and fall to the bottom of the separator along the separator wall due to gravity.

The vertical type liquid gas separator is use to treat low to inter mediate gas-oil ration well stream with relatively large slugs of liquid. The handle slugs is greater of liquid without carryover to the gas outlet and the liquid level control is not as critical.

Horizontal liquid gas separators

In horizontal separator, gas flows horizontally while liquid droplets fall toward the liquid surface. The moisture gas flows in the baffle surface and forms a liquid film that is drained away to the liquid section of the separator. The baffles need to be longer than the distance of liquid trajectory travel. The liquid-level control placement is more critical in a horizontal separator than in a vertical separator because of limited surge space. Typically, horizontal type liquid gas separator is ideal choice because of the low cost to make and widely used for high gas-oil stream, foaming well streams,  and liquid-from-liquid separation. They have much greater gas-liquid interface because of a large and long baffled gas separation section. Horizontal liquid gas separator is easy to skid-mount and service and require less pipe- connection for field and minimize space requirements. GN Solids Control sell a series of solids control equipment and drilling waste management including mud cleaner, shale shaker ,screw conveyor, desander, desilter ,vacuum degasser ,mud agitator,mud tank ,etc. GN keeps research and develop the best technology to manufacture top quality  for our clients, welcome to cotract us to know more info from our sales team.
