About the product

The SwirlSep is a compact separator and is the combination of a special axial flow valve, the SwirlValve, and an inline separator, both complementary in their advantages.
 
SwirlValve
The SwirlValve is a low shear valve that can be utilized as a choke valve and/or (level) control valve. This valve is similar to a conventional valve, however, having one distinct feature: the design of the valve trim is such that a swirling flow (a vortex) is created downstream of the valve.
 
The major advantages of the swirling flow compared to the intense mixing and chaotic flow created by conventional valves are:

  • Smaller pressure drop over the valve
  • Minimized shear on the fluid
  • Droplet/bubble break up is reduced
  • Coalescence is promoted
  • Drainage is stimulated
  • Erosion is minimized

 
The SwirlValve is available in axial and angled configurations. The axial configuration is pressure balanced and therefore requires a much smaller actuator. The angled configuration allows for a higher flow capacity.
 
SwirlSep
The SwirlSep extends the SwirlValve with an inline separator unit. The advantages of the SwirlValve are fully exploited in the downstream inline separator. In addition, the centrifugal acceleration that results from the swirling motion is directly utilized by the inline separator to facilitate separation of the phases, like gas liquid, and solids.
