Test separators are used for break down the crude oil with associate water, gas & sand production.
There are two phase separators that withdraw natural gas from crude oil production. This way it is feasible to measure both gas production and crude oil production which could include water on it.
Three phase separator perform the breakdown for the oil, water & gas emulsion. The separation of these three crude oil fluid components is performed with Controval test separator with accurate flow meter capabilities for each one of the separated fluids.
The four phase separator perform the task that three phase separator does, additionally it could perform the solid as sand separation.
Some of uses for the test separators are: well test, flow backs, and pigging operations.
Controval uses internals components to improve the separation task, like: vanes, inlet deflector, mist extractor, baffles & weir plates.
High quality instrumentation such as: level controllers, level gauges, control valves, flow meters, etc. are used to achieve the separation task and accurate measurements as desired by end users.
Test separator are designed according ASME code, the instrumentation are selected to comply with NACE code, ISO 9000 standard schema is used for assurance fabrication quality, with full traceability for each component.
Skid and trailer design are available under end user selection.
