Separation Internals

Internals form the core of separator performance. Frames separation internals are typically differentiated as inlet devices, gas/liquid or liquid/liquid separation enhancers, as well as other or additional internals. Inlet devices for multi-phase separators are either vane-type inlet devices (FAVID) or cyclonic-type inlet devices (FACID).

Examples of separation enhancers include coalescing plate packs for liquid/liquid separation and vane packs for demisting gas. Other or additional internals include sand removal internals (offline or online) and calming baffles.

About our Separation Internals

Frames supplies internals for a wide range of separators, scrubbers and electrostatic coalescers, for newly-built projects as well as for modification projects.

As separation internals are usually configured as removable items, Frames includes a detailed design of internal supports for easy installation. By selecting high-quality, certified materials, we can guarantee the quality and reliability of Frames products. Upon request, the mechanical design can also be fully verified by Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Because Frames internals are tailored to the requirements of each application, they can be easily installed in newly built vessels or in existing vessels that are undergoing modification. Upgrading and retrofitting of a vessel, due to changing process conditions, can be a significant cost saver compared to vessel replacement. By working with the existing clips, Frames will design and provide internals with a new support system that allows easy installation without the need for welding.

Frames in-house test facilities, field analysis of existing separators, and the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are primary tools used to optimize the design of Frames internals.

Computational FLuid Dynamics (CFD)

Frames internals are custom-built and specifically designed according to the specifications and performance requirements of each project. Using this information, Frames selects the optimum proprietary internals to meet the performance guarantee. If required, the process design can be supported by expert, in-house Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling.
