These separators (see Fig. 4.2.2.b) are characterized by the fact that the gas current

occupies all the entire cross-sectional area.

Typical applications:

Blow down K.O. Drum

K.O. Drum compressor suction/expander

Flash Drum

Surge Drum

Calculation procedure:

The dimensions of the separator are defined via an iterative process, which

contemplates the preliminary calculation of sizing parameters and their subsequent

optimization.

The diameter of the separator to be looked for will be that which gives:

- the minimum section necessary for separation

- the required minimum height for satisfying the control and/or lockout residency times

the calculations is carried out according to the below-indicated sequence .

(a) values of quantities to be utilized:

Flow of continuous light gas phase Wlg = 138.0449 (kg/h)

Flow of continuous heavy liquid phase Wpl = 49186.5519 (kg/h)

Density of continuous light gas phase Vlg = 0.8961 (kg/m3)

Density of continuous heavy liquid phase Vpl = 742.2 (kg/m3)

Viscosity of continuous light gas phase Qlg = 1.001e-002 (cP)

Diameter of drop dp = 150 Qm

(b) Calculation of critical velocity :

In a vertical separator, the separation efficiency fundamentally depends on the

macroscopic velocity of the gas in the vessel. The greater this velocity is, and

therefore the greater the flow of the gas and/or steam for a given vessel diameter,

the greater shall be the diameter of the drops liquid that the reach the continuous

liquid phase.

Since the diameter of the particle of liquid is not known, an empirical method can be

used that expresses the critical velocity with the following relation:

the value of K is given by the diagram in Figure ( ) in function of the parameter

Outside the range of the abscissa in Fig ( ) a value of 0.032 m/s for K must be used

for vertical vessels when the abscissa value is less than 0.001 and a value of 0.0436

m/s for K when the abscissa value is greater than 1.

So :

12.38066

As this result is greater than 1, take K = 0.0436 m/s

= 1.254026 m/s

(c) Calculation of minimum diameter (Dmin):

The minimum vapor section area, which corresponds to the section of the vessel, will be

m

In consequence, the minimum diameter will:

(d) Calculation of internal diameter (D) :

The unified diameter immediately above the minimum diameter is chosen as the internal diameter of the

vessel, D, as indicated in Table ( )

Minimum diameter 900 mm

The standard nominal diameters are (in mm): 305,minals

406, 457, 508, 610, 762 and 914.

Minimum diameter> 900 mm

Currently, standards do not exist as the elliptical end can be made with

any diameter.

However, starting from 900 mm, diameters are chosen with increments of

50 mm

(e) Calculation of internal diameter of inlet nozzle (Din):f inlet

As a rule, process nozzles have the same diameter as the piping to which they are connected. For vessels in which it

process nozzles are planned with diameter greater than the piping, it is assumed that the piping will have the

diameter of the nozzle for a section equal to five diameters in length.

From this rule , the existing pipeline in Shukeir plant is 8 inch , (from the manual book)

(f) Calculation of difference in normal level height (Hrl) and selection of standard level range

The difference in height between high liquid level (HLL) and low liquid level (LLL) is called the difference

in normal level height and is calculated as a function of the normal residence time:

mm

In Table 4.2.2.2.b, locate the standard Hrl row immediately greater than the calculated Hrl.

(g) Calculation of differences in height of NLL and lower TL (H1):

The difference in height between NLL and the lower TL is indicated by H1. If Hrl is known H1dknown, can be

determined using the values in Table 4.2.2.2.b, in function of the chosen standard level range.

From the Table ( ) in Standard level range (72 inches), on the same row:

B mm

(h) Calculation of possible differences in height of HLS (and/or HHLS) with respect to HLL (and HLS)

and o LLL (and/or LLS) with respect to LLS (and LLLS) (Hll, Hlll, Hlh,Hlhh):

(i) Calculation of distance between axis of inlet nozzle and HLL or HLS or HHLS (H2):

This distance is calculated with respect to the highest level and will be equal to a minimum of 450 mm in the case

where (450 - Din/2) is greater or equal to 300 mm. Instead, in the case where (450 - Din/2) is less than 300 mm, it will

be equal to a minimum of (300 + Din/2) (in mm), (see Fig. ).

(j) Calculation of distance between axis of inlet nozzle and the upper tangency line (H3):

When the vessel is equipped with demister, H3 is used to indicate the distance between the axis of the feed

nozzle and the lower base of the demister. . Then the minimum value of this distance is calculated with the following

relations (all quantities are expressed in mm):

B B

B B B

Thus, to calculate H3, the size of the demister, or rather the distance from the lower base of the mesh to the upper TL

(450 mm minimum), is added to H3. (See Fig. ).

(k) Calculation of demister diameter (Ddm):

First determine the optimal velocity of the continuous gas phase through the demister as indicated in the following

equation:

Where Kr is given in the following diagram:

Since the following operating pressure is atmospheric pressure ; OPP =1

Vertically at Opp=1 , KR = 0.105

The minimum cross-section area of the demister will be:

To obtain the diameter being sought Ddm, the minimum diameter is approximated to the next highest 50 mm (for

example, if Ddmmin = 430 mm, then Ddm = 450 mm).

(l) Calculation of total height (H):

The total height of the vessel, or rather the distance between the upper TL and the lower TL, should be equal to the

sum of the following components:
