CFD Case Study

Efficiency Estimation of Oil & Gas Separator for Offshore Equipment Manufacturer

The Client
Offshore Equipment Manufacturer, India

The Objective

To estimate the separation efficiency of the oil and gas separator

The Solution

The separator design was analyzed through CFD to estimate the separation efficiency. The results obtained were close to the claimed efficiency of 99 percent.

Technology/Software

Challenges

Engineering Solution

The separator aimed to provide 99 percent of separation efficiency was modeled through CAD tools and the simulation domain was identified. Considering the volume fraction method, suitable turbulence models and boundary conditions were applied.

Volume fraction at liquid outlet and gas outlet were measured and were found close to one, suggesting that the separator design was adequate to provide the separation efficiency above 99 percent.
