PORTA-TEST WHIRLYSCRUB V Single-Stage Gas Scrubber

Solids and liquid removal from gases with moderate amounts of liquids

The PORTA-TEST WHIRLYSCRUB V single-stage gas scrubber is a compact, single-stage, reversed-flow gas scrubber, capable of providing excellent solids and liquid removal with a removal efficiency of 99.9% down to 10 um.

It can be used as a production separator, inlet scrubber, or device to mitigate production stream inlet momentum ahead of a horizontal production separator. It is designed for low-liquid gas wells and installed to reduce liquid carryover as a stand-alone unit, combination unit, or retrofit to existing combination units. The compact, lightweight, vertical scrubber is ideally suited for separation processes involving moderate amounts of liquid (<500 bbl/MMcf).

PORTA-TEST WHIRLYSCRUB V Single-Stage Gas Scrubber


  • Incorporated monotube cyclone with a recycle mechanism reduces liquid carryover, and when installed upstream of a compressor, improves compressor run time.
  • High g-forces generated within the unit eliminate foam, thereby reducing chemical consumption.
  • Compact design reduces space and weight requirements.
  • Increased liquid removal creates more gas capacity in the pipeline.
