SEPARATORSWaterford Tank and Fabrication vertical separators are pressure vessels designed for separating well streams into gaseous and liquid components. The well stream enters the separator and encounters a deflector plate beginning the first phase of separation. The liquid component of the well stream settles to the bottom of the pressure vessel. The liquid level is controlled by means of a dump valve that sends the liquids to an atmospheric tank or a gun-barrel for additional gravity separation. The gaseous component passes through a mist extractor in the top of the pressure vessel removing the remaining small liquid particles before existing the top of the pressure vessel and then to metering for sales.
