Test separator is an indispensable device in the exploration and development of onshore and offshore oil and gas fields. It is mainly used in well testing, well clean-ups and other flow operations for efficient and safe separation and measurement of oil, gas and water. According to the form can be divided into horizontal, vertical and spherical. Our 3P Test Separators usually supplied with high-accuracy instruments, control and shut-off valves, piping and skid, and referred as Test Separator Package / Module / Skid. Separator vessel is equipped with internal components, such as inlet deflector, vane pack, coalescer, wave breaker, weir plates, and mist extractor. Separator modular unit can be used both in offshore or onshore, either in standalone item or part of the package, and designed to fit the trailer for ensure fast and effective mobility during operation.
Our company's test separator adopts pressure controller, level controller and pneumatic control valve to achieve automatic control of pressure and liquid level of the metering separator, which can meet the well test requirements of various oil and gas fields. At present, it has been widely used in Changqing, Dagang, Jilin, Qinghai, Daqing and other oil fields in China and overseas oil fields such as Egypt, Myanmar, Algeria, Nigeria, Russia, and India, and has achieved good economic and social benefits.
Our test separators are designed and manufactured in full compliance with international standards and are ASME certified. It has the following advantages：
Our standardized products have excellent cost performance and currently cover 80% ~ 90% of domestic oil fields. They are also widely used in natural gas fields;
2.Compact and reasonable structure design, integration of a variety of measuring instruments and control equipment;
3.Compatible with multiple control modes (direct + PLC + computer + DCS);
4.Multilevel security measures to ensure safe and reliable operation of the device;
5.In addition to standard products, we can also customize the most suitable design for customers according to their needs;
6.Reliable quality, which can be matched with components according to the customer's designated brand, such as instruments and valves;
7.It can meet GB, ASME, API and other national and industrial specifications at the same time.
HC is committed to becoming an industry leader in oilfield equipment. Our facilities are certified with ISO, API and ASME standards. Feel free to contact us for efficient and economical solutions.
Test Separator Basic parameters
Separator can be designed as per client’s operation conditions depending on flowrate, temperature, pressure, working medium and other operation data. Most of the clients, prefer size of 42 in. x 10 ft. and pressure of 1440 psi, for well test operation.

Test Separator Working Process
Code & Standards
Horizontal Separator / Vertical Separator
According to the installation mode, the separator can be divided into horizontal/vertical installation, or indoor/outdoor installation.
The horizontal separator is built horizontally, in other words, as the vessel shell axis parallel to the ground. It is usually used for large liquid/gas ratio fluid treatment or liquid/liquid separation. Compared with vertical separators, there are longer horizontal sections for liquid flowing and shorter vertical sections for gravity separation of liquids with different densities. The horizontal separator requires a relatively large horizontal installation space, and its application is generally not affected by the field wind.
Horizontal separator can be used for test separator, production separator, two-phase separator, three-phase separator and special application separator.
The vertical separator is built vertically, which means the vessel shell axis is perpendicular to the ground. It is usually used for large gas/liquid ratio fluid treatment. Compared with horizontal separators, there are larger cross-sectional area for gas flowing and longer vertical sections for gravity separation of liquids from the gas. The vertical separator requires a relatively small horizontal installation space, but for very high or slender separator the field wind shall be considered.
Vertical separator can be used for test separator, production separator, two-phase separator, three-phase separator and special application separator.
