Design of Gas-Liquid Separator for Complete Degasing

Tamagna Uki, Subhash T. Sarda, and Thomas Mathew

Abstract—Entrapment of Gas in Liquid flow stream can cause substantial problems in process plant operations. Release of gas slug can possibly lead to unwanted release of Chemicals into the environment. Hence, design of Gas-Liquid Separator (GLS) becomes very important in a process plant. The GLS should be properly sized to discretely separate gas and liquid phases. The paper discusses a Case study of a problem faced by the authors in one of their operating plants and the remedy for it. It outlines the sizing procedure used for design of GLS for industrial application and its impact on the process.

Index Terms—Gas-liquid separator, design, case study
