Separators: Vapor-Hydrocarbon-Water
101031010103121030900 Separators: Vapor-Hydrocarbon-WaterLiquid Settling RatesThis chapter precedes the chapter on centrifugal compressors for a sound reason. Damage to high-speed centrifugal compressors is most often associated with slugs of liquid entering the compressor from an upstream knockout drum. The other major use of knockout drums is to separate droplets of liquid from gas streams to be used for fuel or further processing. Separating droplets of water from liquid hydrocarbon is also discussed in this chapter.
