Multiphase Separation

With more than 30 years’ experience in gas-liquid and gas-oil-water-solids separation technology for onshore, offshore and FPSO facilities, Frames supplies a complete range of separators, scrubbers and columns on a vessel+internals, internals-only or a fully packaged basis.
Our design methodologies and philosophies, in combination with Frames’ proprietary separation technologies, are designed to outperform conventional separator designs and tailored to suit your specific operating conditions and associated performance requirements. They can be installed in either newly built or existing vessels, without any hot-work, to enhance processing capacity and performance.
Frames’ multiphase separators, and in-house developed technologies and vessel internals, guarantee best-in-class separation efficiencies between gas, oil, water and sand. This enables us to provide you with tailored advice and specific system input to achieve the most optimal and cost-effective solution.
