Gravity Vapour/Liquid Separators. Part II.

E. Beer


The design of gravity VL separators is based on the two-phase flow law and basic equations are well known. However, these equations contain parameters that are the result of experience, and there are always subjectivities in selecting parameters. This paper gives a review of sizing procedures, together with a suggestion on how to use various experienced parameters.
