hysys will not give me the heigth and diameter for the three phase separator

You can use VMGSIM software. It gives diameter and length.

Three Phase Separator is very common and important component in Oil & Gas processing but my observation is; softwares for its sizing are not so common as are common for other quipment and units.

Hysys or other simulation softwares merely size the sepaator as a calculated volume and velocities based on selected dia and length. Expert user can do "reverse engineering" by entering dia. and length and finalize the size based on velocities and retention times. This comment is about conventional hysys, not sure about sizing add-in, this add-in may have additional features.

Most of the multinational companies use their in-house developed spread sheets. However, it is worth while to mention that these spread sheets are not important w.r.t use of correlations for sizing rather these are important w.r.t. the properties calulation (like compressibility etc.). So if you have correlations for sizing then you can make your own spread sheet. Only compromise is to manually enter the properties which is not really a compromise rather a blessing for a new user.
I recommend to refer to GPSA regarding separator sizing correlations in particular (please see the relevant chapter) and almost everything about O&G processing facility in general.

However, please note that separator sizing is an art instead of science and is not as simple as its spread sheet appears. Sometimes gas flowrate is the governing factor and some times liquid retention time is the governing factor. Most important aspect where beginners do mistakes is levels (H, HH, L, LL, N etc for condensate as well as interface) finalization.

Link for GPSA is given below:



If someone has proper software (mot spread sheet) than do share with the forum.

Thanks for the help in fact i complete created of spread sheet for two phase separator and it is perfect when i moved to creat another sheet for three phase separator ( test or bulk ) there was an error which i didnt recognice it . basiclly the design of both separators are based on shell DEP

I know another method for sizing (gas cambell course )but this is not applicable

I will try again to solve it

Anyway Thanks and i appericeate that

You can use VMGSIM software. It gives diameter and length.

Well if you tried it so download it for us

If you have VMG SIM than you do not need anything else.
This software gives you very detail calculation of separator and is excellent.

As for Hysys you need to know how to run the software.
Hysys can size the vessels, separator as well.
Depends what your version of software has.
For example Hysys can calculate for input data as: L/D ratio, required light & heavy liquid retention time and LLL, the following output data: diameter, length, max. allowed vapor velocity, demister thickness, surge time, and obtained retention times. Other Levels you may configure by yourself. There are options to specify weir position, height, etc.

But, my advice would be - use VMG Sim software as give you all you need - excellent.

Dear sa12345
Thanks for sharing this nice program. I have always seen spread sheets (excel) to size separators even in multinational companies like BP and JGC etc. I wished to have this in VB. So really nice to see this program in VB.

Can you advise the source of this program. I mean has some individual made this program or is it being used by some company?

A VISUAL BASIC program to size the three phase separator

First, it will be called a Tricanter in technical terminology. If there are only 2 phases than it is called Decanter or Centrifuge normally.

Second, you have to get the feed stream composition properly ...which means how much of all 3 streams are there in percentage wise along with its properties together....

Third, I suggest you check Flottweg & Alfa Laval websites & put your Feedstream to their tech teams & ask them to quote with your desired outlet streams.

The best way is to calculate manually. Programs are not enough well to hold this problem. If you know the sizing of 2-phase sep., it will not be difficult for you to overcome 3-phase sep. problems or design engineering.

Hi, salim004 and all,
HYSYS dont' depict configuration of separator strickly but you can use DEP/PTS 31.22.05.11 and DEP/PTS 31.22.05.12 and GPSA to get liquid level after that convert to %volume. HYSYS can accept input as a %volume
