Two Phase Separator with Flow Simulation 3101

Model Description

The TSC Sim 3101 Two Phase Separator With Flow Control Simulation shows a vessel being fed a hydrocarbon mixture. Within the vessel the hydrocarbon mixture is allowed to split into its gas and liquid phases.

The model allows the user to control the feed rate and to monitor the liquid and gas phase compositions, to learn about the effect of temperature, pressure and flow rate on the separation achieved.

The flow of the feed is controlled by a flow controller.

The level of liquid in the vessel is controlled by varying the liquid exit flow from the vessel.

The pressure in the vessel is controlled by varying the flow of the product gas.

The vessel also has an over pressure protection system including a pressure relief and blow down valve.

Learning Areas

  • Introduction to the principles of gas and liquid separation.
  • Introduction to liquid and vapour equilibrium.
  • Ability to study the effect of temperature, pressure and flow rate on separation efficiency.
  • Introduction to pressure protection systems.
  • Ability to study level and pressure control.
  • Ability to study feed-back control.
