Horizontal gas separators are mainly used at oil& gas, flare and vent KO drums and performing as slug catchers.
Gas separator skids may include:
- gas& fluid mix inlets and distributors (angle packings or deflector plates) and
- main separator (screen packing or string header section).
Separated fluids are accumulated at the bottom of the vessel and drained via the fluid discharge or drain. The vessel has level alarms to monitor fluid level inside.
