The M-I SWACO 3-Phase Separator is a technically advanced instrumented vessel designed to efficiently

The M-I SWACO 3-Phase Separator vessel was developed for land frac flowback and well test operations and helps operators understand the performance characteristics of a well efficiently and safely.

The separator consists of the vessel, an oil and water flow measuring system that utilizes turbine meters, and electronic gas flow measurement systems with several sampling points. To provide accurate measurements, the vessel is fitted with pneumatic regulators that maintain a constant pressure and a constant liquid level inside the vessel using control valves on the oil, water and gas outlets. The separator is fitted with a removable and serviceable effluent diverter tube, a mist extractor, a vortex breaker and a weir plate. These components reduce the risk of liquids in the gas line (carry over) and gas in the liquid line (carry under), which affect the flow rate measurements. The separator can also accommodate small quantities of sand or solids, disposed of via the trash line.

The 3-Phase Separator is built in compliance with ASME VIII, Division 1 and NACE MR-0175 for H2S environments. Its skid can also be designed to SEPCO OPSO55 and API RP2A standards.
