Vertical Separators

PESCO manufactures a wide range of vertical separators and scrubbers. Vertical separators are best suited for low to intermediate gas-oil ratio wellstreams, or wells that produce sand, coal fines, or other sediment. Vertical scrubbers are designed for a lower liquid loading, typically less than 10 bbl liquid per mmscf.

Standard Features

  • Full cross section, high efficiency mist extractor.
  • Specially designed inlet deflector utilizes the incoming wellstream velocity to obtain rapid primary separation.
  • Full cross-sectional area of separator utilized for secondary separation.
  • Knock down baffles utilized for more efficient separation.
  • Baffle above the liquid section assures a quiet oil surface for accurate float operation and efficient solution gas removal.
  • Large liquid accumulation section assures proper retention time for complete solution gas removal.

  • 2-Phase or 3-Phase Operation
  • Enclosures
  • Indirect Heater around liquid section to prevent freezing
  • Pressure Control
  • Flow Control
  • Metering Capabilities
  • Emission Control
  • Conformance to NACE Specifications
  • Automation
