What is a Filter Separator?

Producers use a filter separator to separate solids and liquids from natural gas. Specifically, a filter separator removes impurities such as pipe scale, water, iron sulfide, liquid hydrocarbons, compressor lube oil and sulfur products from the natural gas.  A filter separator differs from a standard separator vessel in that it uses filter elements to remove contaminants rather than using mechanical devices. In this video we explain:  Why and where filter

Line Heater

How a Line Heater and Separator Work in a Gas Production Unit

A Gas Production Unit, or GPU, is actually two pieces of equipment joined together inside one housing: a line heater and a horizontal separator. In this video, Kyle explains: What a gas production unit is Where and why gas production units are used The phases and sizes of a gas production unit The flow path through the unit Where and Why a Gas Production Unit is Used To be sellable,

Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Producers use two-phase separators to separate produced fluid from produced gas. Some of these separation vessels are made with 1″ connections for the controller. Kimray offers three solutions for controlling the separation in these vessels. Pneumatic Level Switch with External Float Cage  A Pneumatic Level Switch is a good option for two-phase separation, because it’s not

Examples of Oil Separation Systems

What is an Oil Separation System?

Oil Separation System Wells typically produce three elements: oil, gas, and water. Oil and gas producers use a combination of separation vessels, also called an “oil separation system,” to separate these elements. Three of the most common types of separation vessels are two-phase separators, three-phase separators, and heater treaters. Three-Phase Separator A three-phase separator separates
