2021-12-23  2. Horizontal Three-Phase Separator with Oil Bucket and Water Weir. In a horizontal three-phase separator with an oil bucket and water weir, the vessel does not require an active interface controller. As the oil separates on top of the water it spills over the weir plate and into the oil bucket. The oil level in the bucket is controlled by a ...

Horizontal Separator Kimray

2021-12-4  Description. In a horizontal three-phase separator, fluid enters the vessel through an inlet, and immediately hits an inlet diverter. This sudden impact provides the initial separation of liquid and vapor. In the liquid section of the vessel, the emulsion separates and the oil starts forming a layer (or “pad”) above the water.

Vertical Three Phase Separator Configuration - Oil and Gas ...

The third method uses two weirs, which eliminates the need for an interface float. Interface level is controlled by the height of the external water weir relative to the oil weir or outlet height. This is similar to the bucket and weir design of horizontal separators. The advantage of this system is that it eliminates the interface level control.
