Improving Joule Thomson operations and separation performance

The Twister SwirlValve is a minimum shear valve that promotes droplet coalescence in two phase flow by means of a generated swirl flow. It is a cost effective alternative to a conventional control valve and is used to improve the performance of downstream separators by increasing the handling capacity, or improving the quality, of the outlet streams. It enables a rise of natural gas production and reduces bottlenecks found in existing overloaded two or three phase separators.

Pro/con

Increased production capacity
Increased NGL production (C6+)
Lower export gas dew points
Easy to retro-fit in existing piping arrangements
Debottlenecks existing overloaded separators
Less liquid carry-over/gas carry under
Reduced maximum valve capacity due to Swirl Trim (for the axial flow valves)

Specification

Areas of Application Joule Thomson expansion of gas flows. | Gas/Oil separation processes. | Oil/Water separation processes.
Compliance PED, API 6A-ISO 10423, API 6D-ISO 14313, ASME B16.34, DIN, NORSOK, GOST.
Capabilities Flow debottlenecking of separator trains. | Pressure drop reduction in JT-LTS processes. | Reduction in liquid carry-over/gas carry-under. | Increased liquid recovery, reduced chemical loss.
Control of Process Flow Minimizing droplet break-up and enhancing coalescence while controlling the flow or pressure.
Installation Installation may be completed within one day, with minimal disruption.
Simulation Tools The SwirlValve trim is optimized using CFD.
