|Title:||Hydrodynamic Studies On A Cyclonic Separator|
|Abstract:||The paper describes the operational principles, the modeling foundations and some laboratory results of the gas-liquid separation process taking place within a cyclonic gas-oil separator. The centrifugal and the gravity forces, acting on the flow of the gas-liquid mixture, are the main driving mechanism to separate the phases. A research program, conducted by PETROBRAS and UNICAMP, was aimed to the hydrodynamic processes occurring within the equipment. Laboratory data were obtained from down size scale models operating with mixture of air and liquid with different viscosities. The basis for the modeling is launched and a discussion regarding the limitations and constraints of the operation is presented in light of the experimental results. Prospective field applications, based on the extension of the laboratory results to actual fluids and full dimension prototypes, are also presented.|
